Question: So you think you can dance?

I have been watching this show, now that Hell’s Kitchen is over, and I am nothing if not a reality tv monkey. I have to face up to who I am, and when I look in the mirror, I see the shamed face of a woman who loves reality tv. I can only watch one at a time though. I have learned in the past that I can’t really do two at once. It is too much of a time commitment, and I want to actually have some semblance of a life.

Anyway, I love this show. I don’t love how once in a while, they try to get some shock value by being overly insulting (I dislike Creepy Uncle Nigel), but for the most part, they keep it zipped. It’s like this show combines two of my great media loves: reality tv competition + breakdancing. There was even an instance of a dance battle in last night’s episode. Awesome. They have dancers of all sorts of different backgrounds (jazz, ballet, hip hop, break, tap, etc) going through various classes to learn different styles and to get evaluated by the instructors. They are down to the final 16 people. I think the format changes now that they are into the finals, but what do I know.

If I could instantly pick up some skill overnight, it would be breakdancing.

Seppo and I are taking tomorrow off from work. Yay! While it’s a pretty exciting idea, in reality, we’ll probably just end up taking the car into the mechanics and run some other errands. Heh.
