Belly Dancing for the WIN  
What have I been doing over the past few days? I'm buried in work, of course. Lots and lots of work.

But when I was ready to start punching things, I decided to go for a workout.

I tried belly dancing.

OMG, most fun EVER.

This something I will have to continue to explore.

In other news, I hate that my Thursday class gets out in the middle of SPN. I'd much rather it get after or before because walking into the living room in the middle of the show sucks.

However, my mother apparently has hated tonight's episode with a passion I didn't know existed. Crap. That bad? Now I am sad :(

I guess I'll watch it later and catch up on SV this weekend.

I did get to see the preview for next week's episode. Uh oh. Is it May 1st yet?

Belly dance? Good for you! : D

I LOVE Belly Dance! Though I learned through those VHS tapes that teach. I felt so good while doing it, but the tapes one can only watch the same thing for so long before they lose interest. Still I so want to return to it. I'd love to sign up for a dance class in it. I'd just have to find a studio and some money and I'll be set. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it and had fun doing it too! : )

I love it so much. I want to do more. I wish i could find an instructor. of course, it would help to have a job first :(

I'm with your mom. *g* I didn't like this week's episode. I wonder if it's a generational thing, because I think most people on my flist liked it. (Well, I'm not entirely sure of that. I've only skimmed a couple of reviews so far.) It made me dizzy and I thought it was boring.

I haven't watched Smallville yet. I'm still sad about last week's episode. It was such a weird episode.

I loved last week's SV. And next week's looks awesome :)

Maybe the SPN thing is generational. I don't know. When I watch it (and really kind of unspoiled for it so I don't know much) I'll post on whether I liked it or not.

Yeah, I don't know. I have four comments to my review that mostly sort of agree with me. *g* So maybe I'm wrong about that. For me it was mostly a stylistic thing. OTOH, sometimes people who disagree tend not to comment, which I really don't get at all.

I'll be interested to see what you think. :-)

Next week's SV looks awesome? I don't think I remember seeing the preview. Maybe I've already forgotten. [ETA: Duh. I am such a ditz. Of course I haven't seen the preview for next week yet, since I haven't watched this week's episode yet.]

I both loved and hated last week's episode, though it pissed me off that I got spoiled for The Big Thing. I didn't have a chance to watch it right away, and I subscribe to Buddy TV articles for that show. They put the big spoiler in the teaser for the article that was in the email. I wouldn't have read the article until after I'd watched, so that annoyed me. They could have had that in the second or third sentence so that people who get the articles via email wouldn't have seen it. Grrr...

Oh you got spoiled? :( See, SV is the only show I am spoiled for. I'd rather not know the episode plot point by plot point, but spoilers don't bother me.

For everything else, I flip out. I just don't want to know.

I am usually a spoiler whore for shows that I love, but I've been staying spoiler free for the big things on shows like Smallville and Torchwood. I don't mind knowing general stuff or small things or casting spoilers or even minor character spoilers, but I don't want to know the big things.

I've mostly been able to do this easily because I'm not in the larger fandoms, but it kind of annoyed me that after the UK airing of one of the Torchwood episodes, a zillion people on my flist posted their reactions outside of a cut. Usually I couldn't consider an episode reaction to be a spoiler, but these were all big and extreme reactions, which I felt was a bit much to post outside of a cut. I had no clue anything really big was happening. Even though I didn't know what it was, it annoyed me a bit, because I think it would have been better if I hadn't been bracing for some sort of shocking big event. *g*

But yeah, I hated being spoiled for that one big event on Smallville, too. I usually know a lot of the small stuff, but that was a pretty big thing to risk spoiling people about. Buddy TV has the first sentence or two of the article in the email and then a link. It would have been easy enough to avoid spoiling people.

Wow, belly dancing? I've never considered doing that. Hope it relieved the stress of work!

It is so much fun! I wish I could find an instructor who does it because I really want to learn in person.

btw, I'll have your fic back to you probably tomorrow.

I'd never considered belly dancing because of my weight.

Thanks for beta-reading my fic, especially since you've been so busy! I really appreciate it!

Same here. I figured I wouldn't bother because of my weight. Then I thought, well I'm just being stupid. the moves will target the exact area I need help with in the first place!

So I'm going to do it anyway :)

I didn't much care for SPN tonight, for what it's worth. I think we tend to see things differently. ;)

Heh heh. Yeah, we'll see. I'm not really hard to please to begin with, but if my expectations or too high, forget it. Maybe if I lower my expectations to the bare bottom, I'll love it.

I'm going to see if I can afford to get a DVD on belly ancing or something just to start since I can't always watch it on tv or afford instruction. It's exactly the area I need help with anyway and it's fun. Win-win situation for me!

Don't like The Office I take it? I've only seen some of the original one from the UK so far.

And thanks about the header *smooshes it*

My friends tried to get me to bellydance once, but I simply ended up laughing all the time, because I just couldn't manage it. :p But it really is fun.
