I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just a Little Unwell

It's been a while since I've written an un-themed post.

I guess I don't really have too much to update on. Nothing much has changed. I've basically just been really bored since Too Much Light ended. I spend most of my time in my room, all brooding and reclusive, haha. S'all good though.

The other night I was at Cabana and this older man, who looked like an English Sheepdog, insisted that I dance with him. He had the worst breath ever. It smelled like beer and cigarettes. And, I'm almost certain, that even if he brushed his teeth, the smell is there to stay. Anyway, he wanted to swing dance. Keep in mind I haven't done any swing dancing since like 2000, when that movie Alley Cats Strike made swing music popular in middle school. And even then I was no good. So, he's leading this swinging (we were dancing to a hip-hop song, btw) and literally flinging me all over the dance floor. There were others dancing, but since he had no regard for them, he was throwing me into them and they all started going to the sidelines. After a minute, we were the only ones on the floor. The song, I felt, lasted waaaaay too long. I thought my shoulder was going to be pulled out of its socket--he was forceful. Needless to say, we probably looked like the biggest asses EVER. Good times.

Last night, Jill and I went to see The Dynamic Duo perform some slam poetry. I've always wanted to do slam, but I've never been too thrilled about my poetry writing. Anyway, it was an awesome show. The two guys, Ken Arkind and Panama Soweto, were really funny, but also smart and clever with their words.

Here's the one they opened with:

This next one Ken performed by himself. It was so awesome. In this video, though, he's performing it with two others and I think it's even better.

Oh, do any of you guys watch the new show Modern Family? It's really hilarious. And Christopher Lloyd is one of the creators, exec. producers and writers. I love Christopher Lloyd! I wonder if he'll ever have a cameo.

Are you guys watching any new shows? In addition to Modern Family, I'm trying to keep up with: Glee, FlashForward and The Middle. I was watching Community for a while, but I wasn't all that impressed with it. Maybe I'll watch the season online later. Then there are the shows that I've been watching for a while: SVU, Lincoln Heights, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Lie to Me and 30 Rock.

So much TV, so little time. Mostly, I watch the shows online because a lot of them are on at the same time. I don't think I've ever been this into TV, it's strange, haha.

I guess I'll stop rambling. Hope things are well. :)

Alley Cats Strike is my second or third favorite Disney Channel original movie. :) So that man that you were dancing with...I'm sorry for you. I mean, if I was there I'd probably document it and bring it up in the future to give you hell. But in general, that is a most unfortunate experience.

Again, too bad not a lot of people went to the slam.

I'm watching Glee too. I think that's the only new show I watching, I keep with most of the old ones I've been watching for years. OH! Accidentally On Purpose, the show after How I Met Your Mother. I actually watch that entire 2 hours of shows on Mondays, How I Met Your Mother all through Big Bang. Then Greek. :] I think I totaled it to 24 shows that I watch...yeah. I know.

Jamika! I'm so glad you posted something. it sounds like you had an interesting time at Cabana...something fun/weird always happens there. And I LOVE the show Modern Family! I don't think it's the actor Christopher Lloyd though. I imdb'd it, and I think it's the Christopher Lloyd who directed the movie Flushed Away. But..yeah. Just thought i'd let you know!

oh to answer your question, YES i have been watching 30 rock! it's good so far this season. Although, now that I've been watching Ally McBeal, i really wish Jenna would do more in the show.
Also, I'll be teaching elementary/middle school kids. And the snakes are probably in rural areas...i don't think i'll have to worry about them if i'm in a city. I just kind of over-reacted when I read about them at first.

oh yes, I'm keeping up with Glee too :) I am totally in love with Kurt and his fabulous outfits. haha.

You didn't tell me about that shaggy dog/terrible dancer. How embarrassing. I'm sorry. Were you at least a bit drunk? That would have helped a little, I'm sure.
