My new header and other tidbits.

Do you know what the new header is a picture of? It's my elbow. My husband didn't even know that one. I showed it to him and he was all "Cool!" and I asked him if he knew what it was and he said "Nope." I guess I can't fault the guy, I mean, how many people really look at your elbow?

Today is Wednesday and my burlesque dance is Friday. Tomorrow if full dress rehersal. I have not only NOT gotten a dance together (a lot is in my head, but I don't have a routine) but I haven't even finished my costume. Tomorrow is my day "off" as I'll be alone all day, so I plan to work from 10a-3:30p on my dance. I'm sure I'll get something together. I mean, what else can I do? This is how I work though. I'm a procrastinator and I work the best under stress. Although I hate that I purposely put my body through stress.

Jenn found the youtube video of us dancing to Thriller here. (Thanks Jenn!) It was dark, so you can't see much, but I'm on the left and behind Hazel (the girl wearing the huge blonde afro wig). I'm wearing my hair in a ponytail and you can kindof make it out. Heh. It was so much fun.

It's snowing right now. I'm going to pull out my costume and as least maybe get the sewing done on it so I don't totally freak out. I've got tons of sequins and beads to glue/sew on, which can be done friday during the day. If I just get the main costume together and work on my routine today/tomorrow, I'll be okay. The best thing about the dance is I am spending ~most~ of my time taking off clothes. So if I can just memorize the parts I need to hit with the removals, I can just fill the in betweens with sexy dance, which I think I can do on the fly. Or not. We'll see how silly I end up looking! :)

I thought that new header was one of your tattoos !

I am sure your costume will turn out great !

Jenera said...

I knew the header was one of you I just didn't know what body part.

Have fun with the dance. That sounds like so much fun!

I knew the new header was one of your tattoos but I would have never guessed it was your elbow, I don't feel so bad since your hubby didn't even know :)

I could totally see you in the video. You done good, kid. Did the little boy in the shot dance with you guys the whole time?

Birdee said...

I totally saw you dancing!!! I'm still so Jealous!!! I as jamin in my seat watching you. You look awesome!! (tho they kept moving the camera away from you to the right)
I did know that it was your tatoo, but not your elbow. Isn't that your recently new work (Like last year around this time? Maybe a bit earlier). Anyway, it looks beautiful.

Jen said...

I could definitely make you out in the video! That was great! Good luck finishing up the costume. I'm sure you'll do great.

Mareike said...

hey, I knew what I was looking at (and I now know that elbow tats are really painful cause you told me.)
I'm sure you'll kick ass with your dance because (as far as I can tell) you kick ass at everything you do.

Lisa said...

I am sure you will be amazing! Too bad we won't get to see it.

By the way, I knew your new header was of your sleeve. I just hadn't taken the time to figure out what part of your arm it was.

Jen said...

Your new header is really cool. I knew it was one of your tatoos, but didn't know where it was. Very cool!

I think it is great that you are doing this dance! How brave of you!! Shit, I had a hard enough time just dancing at my friends house the other night and we were just messing around. I can't imagine dancing like that in front of lots of people. You go girl!

love the new header!

Kristin said...

Gorgeous header. I know we don't get to see the dance but do we at least get to see the finished costume? Pretty please?

jenn said...

Very cool header! I agree- can we pretty please see the costume? With sugar on top! ;o)

You'll be great. I can't get over how it snows there before halloween!

JamieD said...

Love the header!

And the Thriller dance was great.

Good luck with the costume and dance - you'll be great!

Tara said...

The header is awesome.

The fact that you've got your elbow completely tattooed needs to be acknowledged. To those who don't know, that's a fucking bitch of a place to get tattooed. (My elbow remains mostly untouched thus far...!)

Kaci said...

I noticed your header the other day & almost commented on it - it looks really cool.

Good luck tonight with your dance. The Thriller video was pretty neat - my step teacher actually came up with a Thriller-esque step routine for us the other night, but nothing like dancing the full thing!

wtf is up with y'all getting so much snow this early?!? Better you than me ;)
