Tonight's challenge was to include illusions in the dance show. (Which totally had me thinking of S. for most of the show.) The all girl beatfreaks did this awesome dance including a floating ball which was just an all around amazing routine. It was the only one that didn't have the trick look completely shoved into the midst of a bunch of dancing.
I digress. The cloggers were, as always, technically amazing. One of the girls on the other team all but fell out of their split into the roll, like a good three full beats before the other girl began her tuck out. So dumb. Hopefully, tomorrow I will mellow. It just really irks me that something thats about amazing dancers, the girls wearing the gold lame and bootyshaking are going to beat people who have near perfect technique.
In other news, garbing is going well. I have embroidery and finishing work to do on a few things. (S.'s packet pouch, both my pouches, Josh's pouch) My new cloak though is soooo pretty. Green faux suede to cut wind chill, lined in microfleece for warmth. Josh is getting so darned good at constructing things. He's finished one of his yoke shirts and has just the hemming on his second.
This weekend we need to scoot down to the fabric store for the President's day deals. We still have the last fabric to pick up for S.'s vest and pants, fabric for Josh's second pair of pants, tabards and cloak (ouch!), and then fabric for the baby's muppet cloak and second doublet.
Still need to buy ears, belts, boots. Make a sword, hammer, shield.
Still not king.
So, I am totally addicted to America's Best Dance Crew on MTV. It is the only thing I stay up to eleven (:gasp:) on weeknights for. It's had a clogging team - Dynamic Edition - which I absolutely adore on it and I've been staying up to vote for their awesomeness. Sadly tonight they were kicked off by a bunch of skank cheerleaders from Miami. Judges pissed me off.
