Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |contentcontent]


So ST and I have chosen a song for our first dance that is a little faster than your average hold-each-other-and-sway ballad. And we worried that if we tried to sway faster it would just look like we were having some kind of seizure. So we signed up for dance lessons. Yes. We did. Actually, ST's wanted to take them for a while, but in more structured classes. However, this is as good a start as any.

We met the nice lady at her partner's studio on the outskirts of Baltimore (after having driven clear into downtown Baltimore to entirely the WRONG studio and having to drive back out after having to have someone break into my email and get her cell number for me.. thanks insidian, I owe you BIG TIME) and she listened to our song and suggested a basic step and we practiced it individually and together for a good while. Then we talked about how to hold each other, how to put our feet, how to move the step together, and did that for a while. Then we had the absolute fun of talking about the intro part and some fun moves to do during that and also a couple of good spins and stuff in the middle. We'll finish with something else fun and just keep the basic step going in-between. So we got one basic, one basic turn, a couple of fun spins, and a battle plan.

And ST? Is a fantastic partner. He leads really well and though we have one small problem it's nothing that can't be cured through practice on the front deck. I like how he holds me and I like that he's not afraid to be kinda assertive in the moves. All in all, it's money *very* well spent.

I spent the day at home yesterday because the Bish was in the shop. Of course I picked him up before noon but I stayed home anyway. I finished printing the program inserts, the favors, and some of the place cards. I've got some projecty stuff but I've decided to do an at-home day tomorrow too so we'll see how many of those get done.

Also? I have once again had a glimpse of how low I'll stoop if the item in question is on the dollar rack. It's pretty low.


In other news. I have a full tank of hot water! My landlord said I was right, an element had gone bad. This means I'll have enough hot water to take a bath now. OMG.. a bath. *heart*

Also also? Studio60 is so good it makes me go all wibbly. ST might have gone slightly wibbly too. Just.. y'know, in case you were curious.

Tonight is our date night. We're going to go see Black Dahlia I think. Yay!

oh god - save yourself those 2 hours you won't ever get back. That movie SUCKED. Terrible in many ways.

Glad to hear the wedding prep is going well!

Seriously? Yikes! OK, we'll head out of town and go see The Illusionist instead. To be honest, I wasn't up for watching Josh Hartnett be wooden and weird for two hours, he always looks like he's playing "grown-up" in someone else's suit.

I tell you what, I love this wedding, I'm having a great time planning it and I love how excited Steve is and all that good stuff but if I never see another piece of cardstock again it'll be way too soon.

oh! The Illusionist!

I hope you two like it even a tenth as much as I did, Melly. I just. I can't even. *hands* Paul Giamatti is a god among men, and so is Ed Norton.

I've heard that as well. Too bad, because it looked interesting on the previews.

Apparently this one doesn't even qualify in the "I often like bad movies and dislike good movies" outlook.

I am so glad you are enjoying your wedding prep, and I know you will enjoy the real thing, and, WHEW! reading about it is innoculating me nicely against ever wanting to do anything more intense than "Hm, wedding, ummm, howse about a really nice dinner somewhere instead..." :-)

Good job on the ballroom dance lessons! I love dancing ballroom. And you're lucky that ST is a good partner. NOTHING worse than a limp noodle who gives you no indication what he wants you to do.
