Back to civilization!
Hi! I'm back in Calgary now, which is very thrilling, mostly because I have a real internet connection here and can get all caught up on the SYTYCD clips. (Oh, and I get to see all my C-Town homies, of course!)(Yes, I promise never to use the phrase "C-Town Homies" again after this.)
Benjiiiieeeee and Heidieeeeee! Oh my GOD they were amazing. In the Mambo number, I didn't even notice his open-to-the-navel shirt until halfway through the clip. Me! Not noticing hot hot Benji ab-action!! I was transfixed by the actual dancing; those two were THAT good. And seconds 22 to 28 of the Broadway clip made me squeal all by myself here in my parent's house. And don't even get me started on that little jacket-throwing move. Is that baby up on eBay yet?
Hey, upon watching that last clip for the 5th time in the past 10 minutes, I realize that when Benji throws his head back while his hand is reaching up (like near the end of the routine), it reminds me of the Peanuts. Like, as in Charlie Brown, Lucy, and the ever lovable Snoopy. Did Snoopy ever dance like that? No? Am I just nuts? Is there a point to this paragraph? Probably not. But I do know that every time Benji does a Broadway number, it makes me want to buy a poodle skirt and say "Sock Hop" a lot. Sock Hop!! Oh man, I'm giddy. Such dancey goodness!
Okay, let's take a deep breath. I think the Dance withdrawl symptoms are in remission for now. It's funny... while I was waiting in line to clear Customs at the Toronto airport, these dancer-type girls were behind me, all talking about the show. They were like "I like... um... whatshername... she's got curly hair... Amanda? Oh and Ivan! He's so cute!" And I'm silently screaming "NO! HER NAME IS ALLISON, DAMMIT! AND YOU MUST LOVE BENJI!!! LOVE HIM!!! DOOO IT!!!!" Oh sweet sweet psychosis.
Righto, I should be able to watch the show this week. The lovely Cowgirl Warrior and I will be getting together to share the good times, I can't wait! Warn your neighbours, CW, I'm a screamer! :D
