dancing

So I'm a big fan of SYTYCD and ABDC and all of those, so I consider myself to be at least an appreciator of the dance world, if not an afficianado. (If you don't know what these are, do yourself a favor. look them up.)

That being said- you all know I have an unnatural fear of becoming a crazy cat lady. My single status, proclivity towards being crazy anyways, and recent aqcuisition of this dude:



Weasley and his "come hither" look.


all make me nervous.


That being said, I present to you the funniest thing I may have ever seen, and also my deepest fear in glassy full-photo published glory:


My dear friend Leah and I saw this bookstore at the Kennedy Center. And its real. And there are albums that go with it. And I fully recommend that if you have a free afternoon at work to do internet surfing that you dig deeper- its nuts. There is an entire underground movement and community associated with cat dancing. And these people are certifiably batshit crazy.


google that.


You may run across such chestnuts as at-your-desk purring techniques: "Now as you purrr, you'll become conscious that it's making your head vibrate. This is completely normal." **snort**


Tips and techniques about joining cat dancing classes, "After all, dancing with our cats is something we really have to do alone and you can feel rather isolated at times. " **ARE YOU SERIOUS?!**


or this.





you're welcome.

Moral of the story:
I love finding shit on the internet that makes me feel like less of a weirdo.

I have to say that I saw that book a couple of years back while doing some holiday shopping and i was transfixed - it was absolutely hysterical and i couldn't put it down - it came thisclose to becoming one of the many things i buy for myself when i am supposed to be shopping for other people ("one for me, one for you... two for me, one for you..." - it happens). i ADORE my cat (and it used to be "cats" - sniffle-sniffle) and embarrass myself on a regular basis by doting on her so much but you gotta draw the line somewhere and um, i think the line is "cat dancing."

that said, if my fur-baby ever jumped on her hind legs and started doing a jig, i'd jump right in - lol!
