MINI reindeer parade in Atlanta, nothing but cute!

Toilet seat behavior

Why is it that the "adults" that I work with, for some reason, can't seem to clean up after themselves in the restroom? I'll give you allowances for not being able to see the hole or having bad aim. I'll even give you extra points for squatting over the hole with both feet on the toilet seat in a graceful show of Karate Kid style balance (yes, I really do have coworkers who do this in their dress heels, and PS, yes, I can recognize you by your shoes), but could you at least wipe the seat down when you're done?

Do you allow this kind of behavior at home?
Do your guests visit only to find that you've marked your own toilet seat preventing everyone else from using it after you?
Do you train your children this tradition as a rite of passage?

Even my CAT wipes the seat down when he's done.....inquiring minds want to know what YOUR reason is.

I got a hole in one in putt putt this weekend on my first hole. I couldn't believe it!

I'm lusting after these shoes. Aren't they just sickeningly adorable? Who can resist a cute little strap like that!

A and I went to an advanced screening of Bewitched last night. Will Farrell makes a wonderful jerky Hollywood bigwig, Nicole makes an adorabley perfect copy of Samantha, the producers had an excellent soundtrack (Every Little Thing She Does is Magic - Police, Everbody Hurts - REM), but the story was a bit lacking particularly at the end. I won't divulge as I don't want to ruin it for you. It's a cute movie, but you won't die if you wait till it's a rental.

Nicole Kidman sure can wiggle her nose though! Supposedly her contract was written so that she couldn't wiggle her nose in public until the movie was released.

I'm overwhelmed by the ocean of desperation and lonliness that is vented online.

Somewhere our society has forgotten how to make real friends. Lasting impressions and lifelong friendships have been replaced by "single serving" quick doses because people don't have the patience to look past their own faults to accept those of others.

I miss my good friends.

Phil Thorne is made of Jell-O.

I took one of his workshops this weekend, the man can move and GROOVE. He taught a liquid pop session benefiting the India Project at the 18th and Yoga studio. Thankfully he teaches a regular class at the DC Dance Collective. I think my arm wave is broken.

All the girls were wearing these ubercool stretchy pants with gorgeous frilly slits up the side, from CA naturally. I'm dying to get my hands on some Melodias.

I wish Thursday would hurry up and get here.

I just signed up for LINDY classes! For those of you who never too Prep Step at UVA (and shame on you!), Lindy is a fast paced, super energetic dance where the girl gets tossed around. Think poodle skirts and saddle shoes.

Tom and Debra are the godparents of swing here in the DC area. Tom's even started out as a Wahoo stepping it up in '76. His grandmother was a championship ballroomer, dancing is in his blood.

The perfect analogy for the East coast, more specifically, the DC Metro area (courtesy of MF). I never did like frats. Still don't.

Given the Greek mentality of many of our alums, people would go to an even that required waiting an hour for tickets or seats if they could send a pledge (called staffers in the real world!) to block off a row of seats for them. I'm not sure if that's Kosher in polite society.

I'm an "enlightened people" apparently. This fun little store was discovered by yours truly on Rehoboth Ave. in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Items of note Gel Gems (jewel colored window stickies), hot dog/bun salt & pepper shakers, and a sinfully DE-LICIOUS Mango body lotion.

(Grocery) Store Wars by Free Range Graphics is a hoot, go check it out. It's riding on the popularity of the new Star Wars movie, but stands very well on its own as a quality production!
