I think I've figured it out. January is a dragging month. If NASA ran out of money they'd start using it as a parachute to slow down the space shuttle landings. Cross dressers might come out in full force this month. Guys at their height in the 90's should start saying, "Woah. What a January, duuuuude." I suppose the problem is partially that cold I talked about, but partially the social call to jump back into action with amazing fervor after the holidays. I'm not ready to be there yet. I illustrated that point this morning when I woke up before 7AM for the first time in months. Apparently the sleep I get between 6:45AM and 7AM really does make the difference between a driving to work singing morning and a I-swear-to-every-demonic-Hindu-god-that-I-will-voodoo-whomsoever-dares-anger-me morning.
Despite the drag though, there is something to look forward to: dancing half-naked in front of hundreds of impressionable college guys. Oh how their stoned and confused faces will become more so when they go by the bellydancing club table at the student organization fair tomorrow. Last year our table was right across from the Anime Club, Jew-wop (A Jewish doo-wop... duwop? club), and the Madison Mechanical Engineering Society. I think their schpeils went downhill when my dancer friend and I faced each other and started practicing chest lifts and shoulder shimmies. Tomorrow will also be the first practice for the beginner's show group, so I'll get two chances to be a complete goof with a coin scarf.
Bellydancing craziness aside, there is another very fun time to look forward to...
February Chocolate Month!
Yes, February will be the official month of splurging here at DwaSW. I've accumulated enough excellent chocolate recipes that it's time to showcase them in all their delicious glory. Keep your eye out for the recipes, movie reviews, magickal tidbits, dance lessons, and of course, giveaways! If you're curious about what could be coming up, I suggest taking a visit to Heathen's Hobbies for a preview.
*P.S. I'm still looking for a few prizes to add to contests. If you have a budding artistic side and would like a chance to show off, I'd love to hear from you and check out your crafts!
