Dancingman has put up photos of Dancemania. This includes me and [livejournal.com profile] taliesins_muse in our formal finery and me and Baby Giant partway through the performance. Would you believe Baby Giant is three quarters my age? Also note that the couple dancing on the left side of the photo are in the same pose, but the gentleman is bracing the lady's arm away from his body, where mine is dead straight but barely reaches the far side of Baby Giant's torso.

I will add that the photos from Dancemania are the only pics of me wearing gold, ever. It only suits me when my hair is red, not when my hair is it's natural vague mouse.

Back home, after a lovely trip. Acquired what I think is a sinus infection while I was away. This, combined with my horrible habit of forgetting when I'm excited, means that I have practically no voice right now.

Also acquired significant blistering on both little toes (one has lost all the skin, the other hasn't shredded yet), and lost half a stone (a touch over 3kg - last night when I got home I was a touch under 8 stone (111.5 lb or 50.5kg), which explains why my dance pants were a little baggy yesterday on the plane). Routine went fabulously, I had many compliments, I pulled off ganchos (a tango-styling thing) in a lady play, and did I mention the compliments? I'm very happy, the teaching people who were there over the weekend (people I respect like whoa) complimented things like my balance and responsiveness to lead, the important stuff - and the former is something I've just not ever had much of, traditionally. My inner ears had to sensitise before they could desensitise to the spins. Everyone complimented the timing, and the routine itself. We put me and Baby Giant front and centre because the other two couples were more even in height and height difference (I'm the shortest of us all, and Baby Giant is the tallest and largest). Also, I'm the only redhead (well, at the moment I am) in a sea of dark blonde and medium to light brown hair (although I think one of the gentlemen is currently brunet).

Am thinking vaguely of never flying again. The plane back was delayed by an hour. Wasn't cancelled this time, though, which was good.

Still buzzing, although not as much as previous years, for which I blame the sinuses. There may or may not be video, but there will certainly be photos at some point. Including one of me pointing directly at the video camera next to the camera taking the photo (pose position involved pointing at the audience) :D

I've just faxed off my booking form for Dancemania. I happened to be wandering past the website last week and saw the link had been updated, downloaded the form, got permission from Bastard, and I'm now booked. Seven months early. Hee!

Oh joy.

I've started the pre-trip stress itchies.
