So, yes, still alive. I have all sorts of bits and pieces that should have been their own posts, but I've been too lazy busy.

1. Dancing
Still the most important thing in my life at present. The really nice part is that Dad now agrees with me on this. He has even had a few lessons and finds that it's better than he thought it would be. However in early June I passed my Bronze III exam. This brings me ever closer to the public performance that I suspect will constitute my Full Bronze exam, but that's not until the end of the year or early next year.

2. Thesis
So I've had a 'nice' breakdown about this in my supervisor's office last Wednesday. There were a whole lot of things I had to say, mostly along the lines of 'I'm not getting this at all' and they were finally said on that day. I am now getting more support and am very pleased to have it!

3. Wicked
I went to see this several weeks ago and, needless to state, absolutely loved it! Amazing sets, sensational costumes, full cast (which is very fortunate as many of the matinees seem to have alternates or substitutes) and a wonderful overall experience. I was even impressed with Rob Guest, which is unusual for me, and I was surprised how much I liked Rob Mills and Anthony Callea, as the whole Australian Idol thing prejudiced me against them at first.

4. 'Allo 'Allo
I have been buying the DVDs as they came out and picked up the Season 8 pack today. I am delighted that they are finally putting some extras in:
* the 1991 Christmas special
* Comedy Connections 'Allo 'Allo
* Tracking the careers of the 'Allo 'Allo cast since th end of the series
* Cast bios
Maybe not the most exciting things, but a heck of a lot better than any of the others.

That's all I can think of for the moment. Others things as they spring to mind...

Last night I went with one of the guys from dancing to see Burn The Floor: Floorplay. It was absolutely sensational - colour and light and fun, and absolutely the most amazing moves ever! (Of course, it doesn't hurt that there are a number of occasions in which the guys are shirtless...)

The man who created it, Jason Gilkison, is one of the choreographers on So You Think You Can Dance Australia so I will certainly be watching out to see if he puts any of the moves from the stage show into the couples' routines that he choreographs.

I loved that even the warning about mobile phones was turned into a sultry, voluptous dance of sorts, rather than the staid spoken message.

If you're in Melbourne and you love dancing, make sure you go along and see the show - and if you love me, take me with you! *lol*

So I've just learned that I'm about to lose another dancing instructor. This is not an unusual thing, as there is a constant turnover of staff at LGD, but it feels worse when it affects me personally. In all fairness, I did ask to change from Teacher 2 to Teacher 3. However, that doesn't alter the fact that it's quite a bump in the road. Fortunately my new teacher, Christian, seems like a good teacher and I'm comfortable dancing with me. Poor soul, he also shares my sense of humour (or, as Juzzy, who is leaving, put it, 'our sense of humour'). One concern I do have is that he's quite a bit taller than me, with longer legs that have a tendency to get in the way, but we'll see...

And I'm stupid enough to still have feelings for my first teacher. I really am a moron, aren't I? *headdesk*
