dance geeks

Miriam and I have been watching SYTYCD together and completely geeking out about dance. It has been really awesome and fun. We originally bonded over dancing almost 10 years ago, then boys came into the picture and life, and it's nice to get back to our friendship roots.

I took Chris' Int/adv ballet class, and it was hard. I forget that in the summer there are no company classes, so there was a lot of ballet austin company members and trainees and they were sooo good. Like duh, these are dancers in the peak of their career. It was a big class, and I was so intimidated I left after the barre and just watched them. And I was like, dude, I should have continued dancing and so what if I'm nowhere as gorgeous as them. Someone told me: It's an open class. You're the one paying for classes, they're not. (Company members take classes for free at BA).

When and where does SYTYCD come on? I was crazy about it in the first season, but then didn't have cable for awhile.

I dunno. I think dancing is one of those things that is best when it's free, as in when it's not your career or anything.

The few girls I do know who are professional dancers are indeed super-fit and above average gorgeous. They're however also above-average body-conscious (they have to be, I guess), and live in constant fear of being 2 pounds too heavy, or the fact that there's always someone younger, better, prettier.

It's a sad thing to have people who're not even 30 start feeling that they're "too old".

I should've danced more too. But only for fun.
