Man oh man... Ed had me up at 7:30 today... (sigh).
And I went to bed a bit late...:D

Yesterday was all kinds of great!!! Got a lot done, the weather was ... hot and muggy ... but I got a/c so... whatever... (achooooo!)

But the big deal was last night...

We went dancing... (well, sorta).
Our friends are involved in running a Waldorf School... (you know... apple bits, and nuts, everywhere... hahaha)
And they were holding a fund-raiser at a Fred Astaire dance studio last night.
She (Celine of the magic feet) used to be professional dancer at this studio... so she set things up... :D
Gah!!! you can't imagine how much fun this was... Suz bought a simple, but killer adorable black dress (so I knew she was into this... :D),
and we had a grand time...
This wasn't "dance dance revolution" time...
This was ... intense short guy teaching a room full of
couples how to fox trot, waltz, cha-cha-cha and ...
I forget the other one... and it was all so much fun.
I mean, we can spend a lifetime taking taekwondo ...
but we'll never ever use it anywhere but at the gym...
Ballroom dancing, however... I can see being used loads. :D
Our friend got us a pass to some more private lessons...
So we're gonna give this a good shot.
It was genuinely fun (and quite a work out).
ps. we're well aware of the scam side of ballroom teaching... *
but this isn't that. This is pure "couple heaven". :)
Of course, the night was spent trying not to watch my feet
and to not step on Z's toes...
But we made serious progress... considering we didn't know
a single step before hand. :D

wearing
~ pj pants... (they have developed a hole... must get new ones!!)
~ beige t...
planning
~ Edward has a friend coming over at 11:30... for an afternoon of play time... we'll see how that goes. :)
~ Ed also has soccer at 6:00, so an early dinner is in store... I'm thinking bbq something.
~ tonight? Watch Charlie Jade from last night...
~ and a lot of relaxing. :)
wishing
~ venusrising finds her kitty... !!! :(
~ to point out that kitiara has amusement on tap today... (well, it was yesterday...) :D
~ to send out many little moments of care to my friend lil_sass... it's time for you to catch your breath!
~ that bosox enjoyed yesterday and that he and kea have a great year ahead...

So that recruitment thing is gaining news cycle steam.
I wonder where it will go?
You have to wonder... how much additional strain will it end up putting on the suckers Soldiers that signed up before... to have so few signing up now? Will Bush back off the effort and step up the push towards Iraqi independence... (HAHAHAHAHAHA... not-in-your-lifetime-sucka)... will existing soldiers just suffer... or maybe Bush could bring back the draft... and get even more underprivileged young men to hand out in the land of endless sand and body bombs...

I actually snap on the news lately hoping to see what the verdict is in the Glove Boy Trial. He is gonna be sooooo "outta here" (as in, bu-bye USA) if he's found not-guilty.

//

* edit: "scam" in that there are stories in my experience
of dance studios that draw out rediculous sums of money
from patrons that have been made to believe they have talents
above their reality... etc. etc. etc. but those are just small
moments in a longer story of dancing fun!! :D


Ed's friend will be here soon... so I need to shower and sort out my brain. :D
I hope you're having a great sunday... where ever you are.
