Dance, dance, dance all night long...

Oh, what to talk about... vacation? weekend? Not sure.

Since I've had so many photos, I'll talk a little about my weekend. Went to see District 9 tonight. It was much better than I expected. And better than I thought it would be after the first 15 minutes of it - I thought I'd have to 'endure' it. But really, it was good. Very well done.

The interesting exciting thing I did was Saturday night. Long story is that there was 2 degrees of separation between me and this woman I had met before but haven't ever been friends with. We became friends on FB, and then she said she was coming into town and invited me to do something with her/them (she was bringing a friend).

So, went out to a dance hall and experienced the dancing life! I drove 35 miles to do it. I just feel I need to meet new people, and 35 miles is not so bad. It was a great time. An excellent band played that is very tight and can play almost anything - swing, polka, salsa, chicken dance... It was a hoot to watch everyone, and I even got asked to dance a couple times. Two dances with Phil, who was an excellent dancer and well built, and not bad looking to boot. And two with G, the friend, who was not so good a dancer (stomped on my bare toes!) but a good guy and good spirit.

And I remembered how much I like to dance. I'm not very good, but it might be that I need a shot of whiskey or something to relax and I'd be great. With Phil, I made myself relax and once I did, I got better (because he was so good of course). Both guys, I made them dip me. I loved to be dipped. So, I may just seek out the dance halls where you can go and pick up a partner and not have to worry about being a wallflower. If I do go, I'll wear closed toe shoes, and a skirt. Twirling is a must in a skirt.

I left early, in part because I didn't know what type of friend G was to this woman, and he was starting to hit on me a little. Run away!!!!

The rest of the weekend was spent working on my house (some with M's help), and also working on a book I'm making for my mom's 80th b-day (which was in March). I happened upon many high school photos, so loaded a bunch to FB, which was fun.

OK, sleeeeep.

Oh, that sounds like so much fun, NoRegrets. I wouldn't say I'm good at it, but I admit I love to dance. It just feels good.

Oh, nononono.....pass, thank you.

Though I do enjoy watching others dance--

80th birthday--boy, you're a really, really lucky gal to have a mom in your life for so many years!

Laura, you don't need to be good at. You just need to have fun.

Mel, aww... And yes, I've very lucky. She's a great mom.

Sounds like a good weekend.

Dancing is fun. Do go again and wear a flouncy skirt! Twirl like your life is fun!

Thanks for sharing!

Dancing is such a cheap, wonderful stress reliever, isn't it? I don't care how good or bad I dance, it is fun.

I'm not good at couples dancing. Apparently, it's kind of hard for me to let someone else lead. But I'll try any kind of dancing whether I'm good at it or not.

I think that sounds like an amazing time! Get dipped as often as possible. :)
