Holiday Weekend

Hi Little Loves................

Happy Labor Day weekend. I have Saturday and Sunday (today and tomorrow) off. It's been at least 2 years since that has happened. I got this off at the last minute due to our massive changes at my job. Four people got let go, and I was lucky to stay.

I will be working the morning on Labor Day. I will be waking up at the buttcrack of dawn to try and catch the train to my job.

I think I am going to hang out with some friends this weekend. One of my friends just got back from Russia so I would like to hear about her trip and see if she brought me back any souvies. Last time she gave me some Russian chocolate.

I practiced our dance routines for a couple of hours. I am dancing next Saturday at a bellydance festival. So if you kittens are in my area, don't hesitate to come on down and support me while I do the shimmy.

I will be dancing twice. Once with a troupe and once all by myself. The troupe changed the moves while I was away last weekend and now I have to start over and we only have a week left.

But I've been practicing my solo routine. I always get nervous for those.

I got a new bellydance skirt which I am happy about. I forgot how much more graceful I feel when wearing a skirt.

I usually wear pants when I dance because I usually dance with a sword on the floor. When I dance on the floor with a sword on my head two things can happen:

1.) People can accidentally get a money shot when you move your legs around. Accidental or not, it is especially vulgar in bellydance.
2.) You can get your skirt bunched up under you, causing you to lose balance. When that happens, the sword falls off, and the sword handle hits you upside the head. It hurts like a bitch. My sword is a scimitar which is kinda heavy.

Anywho, lunch is being served, and I need to eat.

Enjoy some bbq for me.

Besitos !
