Lost Them

Yep, the very day after I picked up my awesome muffs I lost 2 of them.... Not just the muff though. I lost 2 cymbals that had muffs on them. I LOST 2 OF THE 4 CYMBALS THAT COST ME $62!!!!!! I am so pissed.

What up in my world



So, it's been a while since my last post... I've been having a few computer problems and time managment problems... but all is back to normal now!




I finally picked up my finger cymbal muffs from Naima. I LOVE THEM! They fit perfectly and look so pretty. Now no one will discover my super secret hideout when I play them! MMMUUUAAAAHHHHHHHHH! Speaking of the hideout, I had to drill in the raquet ball court today because the hideout was locked :'( That sucked. No barre and no mirrors. So I had to hold on to the wall while I drilled then I had to rely on a tiny refection in the glass doors for stand in mirrors. Not to mention that everyone could see me as they walked through the sports complex. One Asian guy did a double take... awkward.




Did I mention that Interior Hip Squares 1/2 time with a pos de burre totally sucks? Well, take my word for it, they are friggin A hard. I kinda looked like I was having lower body convusions. haha!




So now that I have my muffs I'll start working on the Salimpour choreography. It's the one that I learned 2 years ago at my first level II workshop and the same one that she added cymbals to at the last level II I did back in October of 08. I've posted a video of it... I'm the one farthest away in the pink. Imagine that.

Maintenance Guys Make Bad Spectators

While I was drilling in my super secret lair this morning 3 maintenance men walked in. They were surprised to see anyone in the studio and asked if they minded if they changed some light bulbs while I practiced. Obviously I couldn't say no, since I technically wasn't supposed to be in there anyway... so, yeah they worked at the back of the studio while I tried to drill at the front.

I tried to ignore them and they tried to ignore me... but it was still awkward. At least I had my ipod to drown out their noise. I bet they thought it was super creepy since it was silent in the room with the exception of my foot work, breathing and the occasional small cuss here and there from me. I'm sure I was counting out loud from time to time too, or saying 'front, right, back , left' or something similar when I was trying to keep my focus.

They really did their best not to pay me any attention, as I did my best too... but GOD, IT WAS SO DISTRACTING. I couldn't keep my head in the game, I tried and tried but I finally gave up and took off about 6 minutes short of my usual hour.

I can only wonder what they were thinking. I was dressed like a dancer, in leotard, tights and leg warmers but I wasn't dancing, just doing stuff with my butt and hips... I bet they were really confused! HAHA! ;)
