Last night I discovered something amazing… I dance better bald. It’s true. Granted I was sitting and dancing, but that just makes the head movement all that more important. I’m sure it’s true though, so it can only mean one thing… hair creates resistance. My head moves more freely naked. A positive since we dance a lot around here.
Today has been a pretty good day. Karen went into the Portland center to finally clean out her office there (she hasn’t used it, really, since she started working from home but still had stuff there. This was the last of it for her and I’m sure makes her feel good about finally getting it done.
While Karen was gone Mom came over to hang with me. It was great getting to see and spend time with her. Mom is great company. She also watered some plants outside and repotted a plant someone had brought as a gift for me. Nice Mom… you rock!
Now there’s a lasagna baking in the oven and Karen and Kev (and Riley) are out in the shop working out. I’m here in the house blogging, watching TV, petting Weston, and waiting to eat the food my honey has made.
Martin’s parents getting down.
The first dance. They did very very well. They’d been practicing for days. The kids sent their song, More Than This by Roxy Music, to Mary’s aunt and uncle. Don and Carolyn, Karen’s brother and his wife, had then worked with their dance instructor to come up with the moves for the song. After they worked out the routine they filmed it and sent it in pieces to Mary and Martin who then practiced after watching the videos. It paid off. They rocked it out.
I know this VIDEO is viral all over the web now, but I just happened to see it this morning and thought… hmmm… Mary… Martin… get on those dancin’ shoes!! Seriously though… this is great. If this video doesn’t make you feel good, I don’t know what will. Congrats to J&K.
Karen and I watch a few TV shows regularly. One of them is So You Think You Can Dance. It’s basically a talent show for dancers. During the course of the show the dancers are paired into couples and every week a guy and a girl is voted off, until they get down to the top 10. This show is pretty amazing if you haven’t watched it. The dancing is phenomenal and the choreography is… spectacular at times. Last night there was a piece, choreographed by Mia Michaels, that was breath taking and very emotional. Check it out.
