Whole lotta labia.

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!
