Theme Song Thursday: Sometimes Ya Gotta Dance

6 Jun

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
******************
Do you dread exercising? I go to a Zumba class on Tuesday and Thursday, and it is SOOOO much fun. It’s not exercise, it’s dancing for your soul. I like that…dancing for your soul. Even when I’m taking the video, I’m dancing inside. Sometimes ya gotta dance.

Are you insane or do you hear the music?

Theme Song Thursday: A Little Party Never Killed Nobody

16 May

“Just remember, there comes a time when the party isn’t a party anymore; it’s your life.”
― Doug Cooper, Outside In
**************
What’s your definition of partying? There comes a time in your life when you realize that partying is not about getting drunk and acting stupid. It’s doing fun, happy things that brightens your spirit, and doesn’t harm anyone. It’s your life.

I love going to Zumba. We dance our little booties off, laugh, sweat and get a great workout. That’s my idea of partying. But then again, I’m getting kinda old. “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody.” Nope, a little party should be totally awesome. Here’s a snippet of today’s partying at the YMCA.

That’s another great idea. After a lot of good, clean, healthy partying, time to take a nap.

Tipsy Tuesday: Sideways Zumba

2 Jul

Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr. (Brainyquote.com)

No, sideways Zumba is not the newest exercise or dance craze sweeping the country. What it entails is, a ditzy camera person, (yours truly) an iPad, and a room full of energetic women in a Zumba class at the local YMCA. I never know when the iPad is going to switch directions on me, or how to change it in movie mode afterwards. I did figure out though, how to pick out stills from the movie and turn those right-side-upways.(I made that word up too. Feel free to borrow it.) So, that’s not too ignorant, is it?

OK, I’m sure a 9 year old could explain all this techno-editing-enhancing mumbo-jumbo to me, but I’m old and I don’t have any 9 year olds around. Consequently, I will be forced to stumble around through the cyber world totally confused and alone. Thank goodness most of my friends are in the same boat without a life jacket, so they will understand.

If anyone knows how to fix this, let me know, or just tilt your head sideways like the rest of us.
