July 29, 2007If this man asks you to dance just do it. Seriously. Don't invoke such foolish excuses as "I don't know how," "My religion forbids it on penalty of death," or "I lost both my legs in the war." He will make a dancer out of you over your protestations. And if in the process you step on his feet, poke him in the eye, or visit other even crueler indignities upon his person, he will be more kind and patient than you deserve. Trust me. I know.
January 21, 2007An unexpected thing happened to me at a party on New Year's Eve; I found myself swing dancing with this charming and delightful man. Although I hadn't done it in years, it all came back in a flash, thanks to Brian's strong lead, fantastic energy, and charisma. He's an amazing dancer, and I truly enjoyed taking over the dance floor with him. Who knew swing dancing could be sexy?
I'm a goth-minded swing dancing poet with an MBA and a license to practice massage. I love theatre, art and culture of any sort. If you don't like good puns, stay away. If you regurgitate the same puns daily, please stay away as well. If you want to dance and sing and love language and people, you're more than welcome to stay. :-)

The problem with press is you don't get to write the article yourself. We dance to The Killers and The Faint as easily as Siouxie, and I teach Jitterbug based lessons instead of Lindy. But... oh well. :-)Thu, July 2, 2009 - 6:35 AM permalink - 0 comments
I really like Depeche Mode. A lot. But Muzak versions of Just Can't Get Enough do NOT need to exist. Period.Fri, March 20, 2009 - 9:45 AM permalink - 4 comments

I'm really proud of the image I made for it. We've got a lot of new friends on FB, and several of them will be coming out. Yay! I hope all my Tribe friends come too. :-)Thu, March 12, 2009 - 5:04 PM permalink - 0 comments
This is good. The person writing the story synopsis is a humor genius of Andy Kaufman proportions. The sentences are only funny in context, or rather taken in context. If you haven't watched Twin Peaks, then you can't imagine how much happens in each episode (and yet how little), yet still this person manages to summarize it all in one sentence.Mon, February 23, 2009 - 8:34 PM permalink - 0 comments
