You know how much I love shanks. I love how daintily the corsetted woman is holding the shiv.

Ok, I need feedback. I like tumblr. Should I completely switch over or do you want me to still keep extra special posts going on here? I'm thinking that blogspot could be good for some of my trip posts and longer things, but I don't want all my fans to have to keep checking two different spots. Shoot me an e-mail, or comment on this post to let me know your thoughts.

Thoughts from my First Ballroom Dance Lesson
First, background. Ballroom dance is on my bucket list. So when 4 lessons for $12 near my house, I signed right up. Tonight was my first lesson: beginner waltz and rumba. Here are my thoughts.
- There needs to be some sort of screening process. Old guys who lick their lips and look sketchily into their young partner's eyes should not be allowed in.
- Just because you watch a lot of Dancing with the Stars does not mean you know how to dance. Stop asking about how "rigid" your "frame" should be when you just accidentally kicked your partner in the shin.
- I find it REALLY hard NOT to lead. I am such a better dancer than pretty much all the guys there. Why am I going to let them lead me down shitty dancing street?
