Back to Dancing [Jul. 24th, 2007|08:57 am]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Dance class was awesome last night, although I felt clumsy in the Basics II class. My improv and group dance skills are very rusty and I've lost some muscle memory. I can't remember how to do some of the combinations, and I can no longer do down hip shimmies at all. I used to get about 1 out of every 10 attempts. Now I'm at zero for 40. Not to mention, my dance practice outfits are too big, even people I danced with last fall didn't recognize me and I've only lost about 30lbs since then. I need to practice and buy a few new tops to practice in.

In great news, I'm in NO MORE PAIN than usual today even after 2 hours of dance class. I am so very glad that I decided it was worth driving to work an extra day (sorry Environment) to get back to the form of exercise I really love. Improv dance doesn't just make a person healthier, it makes you smarter, better able to see from the side of your eyes, better able to multi-task, and more confident, plus, you have better posture and flexibility. It also makes you more aware of what kind of non-verbal communication you are sending out into the world at large.

Topping off the day, my Harry Potter book was waiting in one of the large mailboxes when I got home, so I've started reading it. Anyone trying to talk to me about the book will get shushed.

OK, so Harry gets turned into a werewolf, Hermoine decides magic isn't for her and becomes a failed opera singer, and Ron (otherwise known as The Weeze) becomes a high powered corporate attorney, where he uses his rat to ferret (hehehe check out the rodent references) out the secrets of the opposing council.

I'm happy that dancing did not cause you more pain than usual. Hooray!

Hermoine gives up reading to become a stripper. Harry starts a gay love relationship with Ron and it involves hampsters, then it all goes up in smoke once Ron learns of the "intimate tutoring" going on between Dumbledore and Harry. In a jealous rage, Ron runs to Snape for comfort. In revenge, Harry sleeps with Ron's mother, Madame Weezley, an undercover Cougar from the start.
