Friday Confessions

When I got home from belly dancing last night (OMG SO FUN!) there was no sound on the TV. Since E was out doing a thing for Alice Cooper, I was on my own. I poked a few buttons in a desultory fashion, but the fact is, I am so completely incapable of figuring out technology, I gave it up and listened to Internet TV while I looked at Flickr. I sort of feel pathetic, but not as much as I think I ought to.

Also, belly dancing is scaring the pants off me. We’re doing all this choreographed stuff, and I feel as though I am flailing like a mad thing. I want to do a lot of performing this year, to stop myself feeling like a flailing thing, but I’m not going to be performing if I can’t stop feeling like a flailing thing.

That doesn’t stop me from wanting new belly dancing pants and a new veil, in loud and clashing colours. I have a feeling I am going to be buying some loud fabric when Rachel and I go to Dressew for Grand Master B’s Blue Jedi gear.

Anyone else feel pathetic, scared, spastic, avaricious or non-matching?

    Gassy? Does gassy count?

    I am expending WAY too much thought and energy on a project for someone I don’t even know in real life. But it’s caught my interest shiny! and it’s a great way to procrastinate. Because we all know I sometimes have trouble thinking of ways to procrastinate.

    I got mad at the remote last night. (I wanted to watch my shows!) The batteries were dead and so I threw it across the room. It hit the couch.

    On the bright side, I have chocolate brownies. With marshmallows melted on top. And I confess that my heart sang a little when my texture-averse toddler pronounced the marshmallow “too sticky” and I got them all to myself.

    ...of course while I was typing that, he washed his hands in my water glass, so I’m good for my punishment, thanks.

    Never. Trust. A. Toddler.

    At the end of every day for the last two weeks, my legs ache like I’ve walked a marathon. The hall is long between my class and the music room, did I mention? So, I get home and collapse. To get more fit and be able to handle the whole business, I should go work out. But I wimp out because I hurt and haven’t been to the gym in over a week. That’s my confession

    I have learned that the whole reason I have an Achilles Tendon issue is that I have been walking wrong – the whole time. I need to use more shin, and actually come down on my heel.

    Walking like that is uncomfortable because I am new to it, but I’m faster! And not Achilles Tendony! It’s quite amazing.

    Rachel, I am expending thought on that project, and I don’t even read that blog!

    Stephanie, I was >< that close to doing it to our stupid tv setup that only he understands.

    Cheesefairy, living with a toddler sounds like what it’s like to live with a monkey. He will grow, There will be other water. But I would be frustrated beyond belief by that!

    Beth, keep at it. The walk will get easier. I do understand the not working out though. I’d be with you on that one.

    Arwen, can I do a theater 101 acting exercise on your walk? Just for fun? Because I want to understand how you have been walking.

    Arwen – what, were you tiptoeing around?

    Arwen is naturally digitigrade. This makes her an exceptional hunter, as she has an increased stride length.

    I myself have seen her take down a springbok on the African savanna.

    Yeah, Liz, you can theatre 101 my not completely digitigrade but almost walk.

    My sister pointed out that I’d already been told all that info way back when in high school IN theatre 101 – when walking like Me, everyone would get really bouncy. She says I’ve been getting less height since injury. But still with the bounce.

    I’ll buy that.
