Summer of Sue

I wanted to give everyone a quick update on my summer adventures. To remind all of my loyal viewers (up to 15!), I was experimenting this summer, pushing myself to do things I wouldn't or have never tried.

So I'm taking a bellydance class and I love it. I had taken a class before in VT but it wasn't nearly as intense and demanding as this. If I had a choice, I would run out and join a dance troupe right now. It's freeing and having breeder's hips helps! It also got me SERIOUSLY considering about getting involved w/ Burlesque. I need a good name, so if anybody has any ideas let me know...

I went to see Phish 2 weeks ago. I used to really love them when I was heavy pot smoker. Some down state friends bought the tickets and Sexybeast and I were off. The highlights of the evening: getting denied Jagermeister and Jagermeister products because it was for "VIP" only. Fuck you! SexyBeast: "But I'm trying to give you money!". Hearing Phish do a cover of "Rock N' Roll" by Velvet Underground, vastly different from Jane's Addiction version but awesome none the less and driving home in my undies 'cause we got soaked from a sudden and furious thunderstorm. I should drive nude next time.

And of course, I did one thing I did not like. I shot a gun, a 22, and a shotgun. I didn't see the appeal. Won't be trying that again anytime soon. No fun and heavy and uncomfortable and I couldn't see anything w/ glasses and trying to negotiate w/ the sight.

Stay tuned for more good times.

Totally awesome.

My sister-in-law was into bellydancing. She hosted my bridal shower and her instructor came and taught us all how to bellydance. It was fun.

Oh man, one of my friends LOVES belly dancing too! Nice! I just like wearing her jingly skirts (SOO FREAKING CUTE).

Did you go to a range to shoot? Or borrow from a friend?

AJ: the clothes are wicked cute. Margaret Cho has line but mucho dinero.

I went to the Albany Co. Gun Club w/ some friends-in-law. The "instructor" was meh.

Bellydancing lessons does sound like an awful lot of fun. I was drunk in Toronto one time and was wrangled into bellydancing in a Moroccan restaurant, but that doesn't count and I want to forget it. Damn Canuckistanis.

You've inspired me to take a class about something fun! It sounds like an awesome Summer of Sue. =)
