Did you know that I've always wanted to...


Do this? Well, now you do.

Dad and I just finished watching Shall We Dance, no not the dumb J Lo film. The good wholesome, funny old movie.

It's not like I can go gliding around the stage (not that I could even do it with both legs) now, but I always thought it would be fun.

When I was little I wanted to be a tap dancer, of course I also wanted to be a ballerina, and you all know where that's led me... No where.

Okay, okay so maybe I just want to dance around the stage with Fred Astaire, amazing guy.

I've always thought Ginger was really, really cool. She's my hero... Kind of. XD

I suppose I'll never do that, but I have my dreams. But Madeline was saying something about signing up for ballroom dancing class this summer, she said that I should join her...


BUT WHERE'S MY FRED ASTAIRE!?!?!

:edit: Doesn't it look like Fred is scratching Ginger's head?

I tried on ballroom shoes at the dance store my sister works at. Wow. Those heels are high. I could barely walk.

<3 Fred Astaire

This has only slightly dampend my hope of one day being a ballroom dancer. =D

I'm thinking that I would trip if I tried ballroom dancing. With the shoes and amount of talent required. I'd need Fred to catch me. :)

Yes, you MUST join me in ballroom, salsa, and tango lessions this summer. That would be like the most awesome thing ever!!!!!!

Kristy: Hey, just cause you can't concentrate on the slower going movies.... :P

Curley: Sadly, that will only happen in my secret of secret dreams. :'(

Madeline (aka Screaming Eagle): Heh, but my Dad doesn't approve of dancing. So there's another obsticle to my dreams. I can see you and the cowboy with gouchos (you know who I mean, don't you? XD) ballroom dancing. But there still is that height difference. =D That would be a memorable thing to do this summer though, I think I would die from the funness.

I think Judy Garland originally was going to play Ginger's part. And then she had drug problems...(go figure)

Cydney said...

Oh, Elyse: Miriam (of the Bible) danced. God created us to move, so long as it's glorifying Him. And I definitely think that dancing is a very good thing if it's good, clean fun.

Cyd: It's not a matter of dancing, to honor God by oneself. It's more of a matter of a guy and a girl dancing. My Dad just doesn't think it's appropriate. I can understand why...

Ginger = teh bomb. I would have wept if Judy Garland had got it.

Oh and Cyd, thanks for commenting! :)
