Last night was more fun with Lindy Hop and Marc of Flying Feet
who says that Ellen will hopefully be back very soon (yay). I must note for the record that I hate echo kicks. Course this means that some leaders with a sadistic streak will dance songs entirely made up of echo kicks and I will have to think about how best to hurt them later :-). After many dizzying swing outs and texas tommies and lindy circles, it was off to Rock Bottom with vvalkyri
and Covert. If you know Covert, you must persuade him to get an LJ account which he is insanely resisting. At least that way calvinthedeeple
can get back at him for calling poor Deeple an alien life form.
Tonight it's off to the Warehouse Theater
for rehearsal before the Thurs/Fri/Sat run of Coriolanus
which everyone MUST go to. We may also have rehearsal Wed. night which would be the entire week busy busy, but fun busy so I don't mind in the least. Reminds me to charge batteries on everything needed as props. Moo ha ha.
And THEN 10/6 we awaken at o'dark early and get our butts to BWI to board an Air Jamaica flight to Montego Bay where we connect to the Bonaire flight for two weeks at Captain Don's Habitat where most of our time will be spent underwater taking pictures and videos like these
(or you can see lots of the videos by going to youtube and searching for "ooblick" and most of those are mine :-)). I'm looking forward to it, despite the amount of work it's going to be. There's a great deal of physical effort involved with carrying that much gear around (just the scuba, not to mention the photo stuff), then covering great expanses of watery fun by kicking them fins around chasing critters, chasing divemasters, chasing husbands, etc.
Luckily we have a housesitter to handle the menagerie of monsters. During our trip we'll celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary, Recalcitrant Child's 16th (in abstentia for her, but we won't forget it :-)), dogpooh
's birthday. Then I'll get home just in time to make preparations for Samhain. Aieeee!
Perhaps November will calm down a bit :-).
