I don't think I'm ready to try Bollywood dances when I can't even keep up with a kids dance game ;)
That was hot though.
That's really impressive, Suja. I've never seen anyone dance so well with their boobs.
I'm sure some of you've already seen this, but for anyone who hasn't seen this clip from an old Indian film, it's one of the best (and quirkiest) pieces of cinematic song & dance I've ever seen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyEnG_DEB1I . The female lead dancer makes the most comical faces, but I've looked up her biography and she's truly beautiful and had a really distinguished career.
Come to think of it, I've never seen the actual movie this clip came from. So I'd be curious to know the context of the musical number.
cute little Mira dancing!
I am so clumsy and uncoordinated I know better than to attend any dance class. Back in high school I took exercises classes, and my friend and I laughed at each other at how uncoordinated we both were.
about the British accents, I my dh's accent, even though it's a bit muted. He lived in the US between the ages of 4-9 and then he moved back to England, then finally he moved here in the early 90's, so his accent is not as thick as his mother or brother. I've asked him before, if we ever moved to England, if he'd pick up a thicker accent lol. But I do love his slang. We've been together 8 years and he still surprises me with certain sayings.

A lot of the older movies are seriously stylized, hence the crazy dancing. One thing I can say is that our actors and actresses really do earn their money. The movie that song came from is based on And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie. I think that the winners of the dance get a trip, due to plane trouble land on an island with a mansion, where they get bumped off one at a time while figuring out whodunit.
A lot of what she was doing in the bollywood dance video reminded me of Shakira's "hips don't lie" I do that move all the time. And booty pop. I thrust my boobs and/or ass out pretty good when I'm dancing hard. Can't make the boobs go up & down together like that, but I can do them in tandem. I do not perform that on the dance floor, just in the bathroom when Rich walks in on me & I'm in the shower. It's good for a laugh.
Myles-yours only made me wonder how bad her neck hurt the next day. Back in my headbanging days I'd often wake up the next day with a stiff/sore neck.
I love dancing. The bassline is what every dancer moves to. I love a lot of bass. It's probably because it makes it easier for me to keep the beat. I have thought about taking adult dance lessons just for fun/exercise but I'd be coming home later than I already do and my mommy-guilt won't let me.
This picture cracks me up. I'm not sure wtf I was doing with my arms, but I was actually twisting (as in Come On Baby, Let's do the Twist). Kinda hard to do with such a tight skirt on.
eta: I just like how this one turned out. I look like I think I'm all that...but I wasn't thinking it at all. I was shocked when I saw it.

I cannot dance. I'm seriously uncoordinated. Walking is hard enough. LOL
Go Chrissy go!
I confess...we have I think just over 3 inches of snow. And I got stuck in the driveway when I came home. Honestly I can drive in the snow but the drift was a lot deeper than I was expecting. But I got DH to dig me out while I cooked dinner.
You look amazing and I'm very glad you get to go out and rock the dance floor. Now that's some therapy right there!
Mandy-I read that about your stove from my phone and then forgot to respond. I suck. I think you were totally right and your dh is being ridiculous about it. I hope he gets over it fast. I'm sure once you have a little one he'll know you were correct...whether he ever says so or not.
Jennifer, we're supposed to get 3-5 inches tomorrow. That will be our first accumulation of anything all winter, and it's hardly anything to write home about. I have to drive in too because I have a dr's appointment at 4:00. I kinda would like to have one big dump of show (like 12 inches) just to see how my all wheel drive does in it.
I really need another excuse to wear that outfit. I'm afraid I spent far too much on it. Or, Rich did.

When my dad was here for his last visit, he professed to have no idea whatsoever what Bollywood was, or what the dance style looked like. So I demonstrated for him some Bollywood dancing and my sister was appalled and said I wasn't doing it right and found some Bollywood film on Netflix at my mom's house and showed him. I think it helps to be surrounded by about 50 guys, but I swear I had some of the wiggling down pretty well. I have no formal training, natch, but I have had belly dancing lessons and I can quiver in spots that you wouldn't think. I can make my boobs shake in two different directions if I want to (not that I do, and certainly not for my dad).
My dad was a little horrified at the whole thing.
Oh, and by the way, my car still isn't done. It's been in the shop since Sunday night and they think it might be done tomorrow, but may not be, and if not, maybe Monday. Every day I have called late afternoon when they haven't told me anything, and they tell me each day it will probably be done the next day and they will call me. Each day they don't call me and then it's not done.

About British accents, I only like certain ones. There's quite a few of them that make my ears hurt, like London Cockney slang and the Liverpool accent-the really really thick one, not the one like the Beatles spoke. I do love the Yorkshire accent and the Middle country accent. There is something really cute about being called "love" or "flower" by the older generation here; it makes me feel all warm and cosy like I'm loved by them some how. LOL.
Erin, I hope Elle likes her dance class!
I visited another school today; I have until this coming Sunday to put Travis' application in for 3 choices....aaaah, what to choose, what to choose! I'm so glad it's Friday! I hope y'all have a great weekend....I'll probably check in again sometime this weekend!
L, I think your sister is jealous. I'm sure you did it just fine and it made her feel insecure. With things like that, I know I could mimic them on dvd and catch on fairly easy. I think some people are adapt at that. Formal training simply makes those with the natural ability be phenomenal. If I were to claim one regret, it's that I didn't have the opportunity to take dance as a kid. My parents couldn't afford it.
I'd be calling them every hour about your car. You've been more than patient L. There's no excuse for it to take this long.
Ash, I'd gladly give it to you but I'm afraid you'd swim in it!! I'm a lot bigger than you are! Good luck with the schools. Is there a lot of paperwork for each one?
Jesi took off again. Last night Syd saw her at the end of our driveway talking on her phone. Rich went to wake her up this morning and she wasn't in her room or anywhere else in the house. She's ignoring my calls, texts, and FB messages even though she appears online on FB.
I am concerned, but I'm more angry than worried at this point. 1/10 was exactly the 1 year anniversary of when she ran away the first time. I cannot believe she'd do this to us again.
I have no idea which British accents are which. I know I like the one David Tennant uses for the Doctor (his real accent is Scottish) and the current Doctor, Matt Smith. And the guy in the library. I could not STAND the way Donna, one of the Doctor's companions, talked. She got on my nerves so much.
Chrissy, I'm so sorry. I remember when she ran away last year. It was scary for all of us; I can't imagine how much worse it is for you.
Oh no, Chrissy! Please keep us posted.
Oh, Chrissy, I'm so sorry. Why is she doing this?
Chrissy I am sorry.
