D is for Dance

Ok, this really should have been “D is for Disney,” given how much I obsess over Disney stuff… but at the moment I’m just feeling too tired and a bit too drained to write about happy Disney-related things. Then “Shall We Dance” came up on my playlist and I found my “D” post.

In recent years I’ve had the vague notion in my head that I would like to learn to dance. The “ballroom” dances, that is. Not the modern hip-hop and expressive dance and what not. I prefer the waltz, the jive, the paso doble and others like those. I don’t think I’d be any good at it, but I do feel like it’d be fun to try. Unfortunately for me, those dances require a partner and, well, that rather puts it out of my reach. And there’s also the little problem of me being rather clumsy… (So much for having a name that means – among other things – “graceful.” haha)

That aside: Argh, WordPress, can you not go for 6 months without some sort of upgrade? It’s really irritating for people like me who have to upgrade manually instead of automatically.

The very first tweet:

I want to thank those animals from the movie “Madagascar.” They were a real inspiration.
