I was thinking about live blogging the show Wednesday night.
You know, THE SHOW. The only show really worth talking about on television right now. (Yes, thank the tivo-gods that The Closer came on this week and potentially Bejamin Bratt’s new one, but I don’t know if they compare…)
I’m talking about So You Think You Can Dance. YES, I AM! (That was my Mary Murphy impersonation. Good, right?)
Obviously, I chose not to live blog it. I decided to wait until the results show. Which I am watching on Friday afternoon via my beloved TIVO. But I already cheated and looked online to see who got cut. ACK. I’m shocked.
GEV? (dang, his solo was sweet!)
While Comfort and Jessica stay? (BTW, does Jessica get to stay?) I actually have to say I voted on Wednesday night. That’s how much in love I am. And I voted for everyone except Comfort and Mark. I like Mark but, I’m just not in love with him. Anyway, I’m shocked. SHOCKED.
Now, just a few comments about the group dances…
Girls: Mia Michaels. She’s amazing. But also weird. So weird. I just SO do not get contemporary dance. Even though it’s breathtaking to watch. Can someone explain it to me? Or is it just how she feels when she hears the song?
Boys: Nigel! Yay, how cool is he? I actually do like him! He’s so constructive with his criticism. But it was a fun routine, right? Plus, they’re all cute.
Anyway, I think I already told you I checked out the SYTYCD tour dates. And uhm…yeah, they’ll be in Atlanta on November 11. (So what if I have a 6 week old pirate? He needs culture! He might be in the Pirates of Penzance one day for goodness sakes!)
So, at the end of every show (and at every commercial, every single time the little Snuggle bear pops up) I ask my hubby if he’s going to enter the Happy Dance contest. You know, film yourself being a complete moron (see below) and you could win tickets to THE FINALE. To you know, like actually SEE all the dances and dancers in REAL LIFE. (Maybe Thayne will make a special appearance?)
But Les refuses to dance. He’ll dance in front of me and Lydia like a crazy man. But one tiny little happy dance on video to win tickets to see Will and Twitch without their shirts on? Not gonna happen. Hmph.
The whole idea is that your very own Happy Dance is akin to Snuggle fabric softener. You see the connection, right? Because sniffing a freshly cleaned shirt that smells like Orange Rush or Blue Sparkle makes you want to break out into dance. OK, maybe not. But still, it kinda makes me want to get some of that Snuggle-y stuff. Just to see what happens. Maybe I’ll start channeling Mia Michaels.
(Oh, and my happy dance video? Not ever ever ever gonna happen. But I’d love to see yours! Click here to upload it. And if you win, YOU WILL BE TAKING ME WITH YOU. Seriously, if you do this, please please please leave a comment so I can goggle.)
