Amongst other things, I'd like to say that in Intermediates last night, we did some moves that I remember from the weekend. And some variants on them.
Yes, that was Intermediates I said.
This weekend, I was in Beginners, but I danced with my local Instructors in between dancing with new people and old friends, and it seems at least one of them was ticking off a checklist in his head, rather than resorting to the checklist on my progression card thingy which I think still has just my name on it and nothing else, and when I was going to trot off to Progression he pointed back the way I had come... Speaking of new people, I got to dance with a few of the weekends' Instructors during the weekend (especially during the final danceparty), using some of the new things I learnt. Since my favourite classes were 'Close Moves' (both classes thereof) and 'Lady Plays and Styling' you can probably guess what fun I was having ;P *snh snh snh*
Also: Solar heated pools are fun to horrify people with your willingness to immerse yourself therein at stupid o'clock when the water is frigid, and the air's not much better.
Anyway, now I know more of the locals, the ones who come to classes when I'm at bridge. I wonder if any of them are Spirallers? Somewhere between half and three quarters of their current playlist is cerocable. I just listened to 'Magick' and found myself thinking about what would fit to the music where. Specifically, there was something in one of Nitzan and Sarahs' classes that would be perfect for the ending.
At class last night, it appears I was the only one with energy who went to Dancemania. Given that I still haven't really come down yet, but I'm starting to crash, and fall asleep. Getting quite cranky. Managed to hit myself in the face with some packing cardboard today at work, trying to get the stuff down from the shelf that is just out of reach (I could swear that the last time I had to get these things down, they were on a lower shelf). The ladder is just too big for me to comfortably carry the five to ten metres from storage area to shelf. Cranky Freya. Realised I'm going to have to get one of the nosepieces in my glasses replaced. Having got hit in the face, I had to readjust said nosepieces so that my glasses would fit, and saw the reason that one divot in my nose has been deeper and redder for the last month or more. Bloody thing is cracked.
Anyway, songs I now have an urge to see choreographed, in no particular order, save that in which they came up on my playlist:
'Four Letter Word', Chocolate Starfish
'Bleed Like Me', Garbage
'Rush', Big Audio Dynamite II (difficult to do the bridges in the middle)
'Kiss My Fire', Chocolate Starfish
'Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me', U2
'Underground', Ben Folds Five
'Give Me Something To Sing About', from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Once More With Feeling (complete with crazy music interlude bit where Buffy is trying to dance herself to death - only problem is, the song doesn't end, it drifts off into oblivion)
There's more, but I need to sleep. Goodnight, all. Sleep well, get well, stay well, insofar as that is possible.
ETA: Add 'Numb' by U2 to that list. I just had some horrible horrible thoughts >.<
