So, the dancing was great fun. In case you were worried about it, I'll let you know that I decided to wear a cute dress and a pair of low heels, and I was quite happy with that. Some others there were similarly dressed up, and some wore jeans, so there was no need for me to stress. It was an open house type party/group lesson as a sort of grand opening celebration for this school. Our friend Juan is already a student there, so we went as his guests. One of the instructors buttered us up by telling us that she thought we must already be taking lessons, then explained to us that any guests there that night were eligible for two private lessons for a really low price . . . and that if we signed up for that, our friend who brought us there would get two extra lessons for free. We had a really good time, so we decided to take them up on their offer. What can I say, we're easy. And it's neat to dance with Sharif without all the wiggly flailing that's terribly cute, but not remotely dignified.
The rest of the weekend was relaxing- reading, video games, music, movies. Saturday afternoon was a reverse of Harry Potter day, as Sharif spent the time on the couch, reading a book that he'd been anticipating, and I played Super Paper Mario. That night meant frozen toffee coffee for me at the ilyAIMY show, as well as some incredible lightning. Sunday was Amy's post-apocalyptic/distopian movie day. Good company, awesome foods, entertaining entertainment. (For the record: Blade Runner, Soylent Green, The Quiet Earth).
So far today, I have spoken to three people on the phone. I have less than two hours left at the office. Slow day.
