I want to learn to dance!

Since we’ve been working on dancing in the show I’m stage managing (Billy S’s Much Ado About Nothing) I’ve had the desire to learn how to dance. I used to want to be really good at swing, but never put any effort into it. We’re focusing on 1920’s dances like the Charleston and the Lindy Hop. We also went over the waltz. I’m not quite confident enough to dance well in the waltz, nor do I manage that rigid body and good support the man is supposed to have. I suppose if I did more of it I would get better.

These people are crazy awesome. I don’t ever expect to be that good, just to have as much fun as they are. I was just looking through my old old blogs (again) and apparently I liked dancing then too. My life is cyclical, clearly.

Random Grab Bag

read over my old blog. It was a lot better than I gave it credit for being. I used to think all those links and images I included were stupid, but it turns out it really made it nice to look at. I actually covered some good stuff. I’ll have to work on doing more stuff like that.

Also, I need to separate my posts. Right now I just sorta pile everything into one giant post. I need to have a “cool stuff on the net post” and then save my “introspective post” for later in the week. I can even write it when I want to write and then submit it a few days later. Write loads of posts in advance so I can just keep publishing even if I’m too busy to write. That, my friends, is brilliant.

Also, shorter paragraphs. Newspapers and other print media does it, I should too. One huge block of text can be daunting for a reader. Basically what I’m saying is I hate my style. Good job me.

I saw this a while ago, it epitomizes my feelings about most things men do

in my conversations I’ve stopped going above and beyond when people ask me a question. I don’t answer the next question I know they will ask. I want them to ask it so we get a nice back and forth. And if they don’t want to know more, they can move on. I leave a little hook so they have something to ask next time. I think this is particularly important when talking online. Even if you have no more questions you can think of to ask you can leave a few hooks so they have something to ask when they’re done reading what you have written. I am refining my conversational skills. Sometimes you can say more by what you don’t say.

Yep, overall random post. Figured I’d throw this stuff out here before they became too dusty.

Some may find this offensive

But really I thought it was well done. If you’ve already seen this I apologize for bringing it to your attention more than once. Also, I don’t think this applies strictly to the target audience, everyone can take something from this.

The IT Crowd

A friend turned me on to this show a few months ago. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first. It’s a British comedy, and not being British I tend to miss some of the jokes. However, the level of geekiness of the show makes up for it.

It feels a little like The Office at first, but quickly transforms into a quirky geek-fest. The references are top notch, and if you get the DVD, it even offers leet subtitles. I’m not sure what else to say, except to point you toward one of the funniest scenes in the show.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
