my first time flashing

oh dear.
i'm doing something tomorrow that makes me cringe. i'm going to be part of a flash mob-style dance routine on train! argh!

i don't want to ruin the surprise of what it's about or why it's being done, but suffice it to say, i'm going to be donning some mouse ears (seems i just can't get away from the damn mice) and am gonna be shaking my tail in front of strangers.

i should have no problem doing this, right? i'm not shy, i make lots of videos, and i love to dance. but do you remember my karaoke fears? this is a little like that.

i think a little (healthy) fear is good for the soul. it wakes you up, builds new memories, and gets you away from your safety net of daily routines. (interesting how if the net is under you it's for safety. if it lies over you, it's a trap.)

so while i'm doing something horrifyingly new tomorrow, maybe you can do something new this weekend, too! then tell me all about it.

meanwhile, my stupid mouse is back. or my not so stupid mouse. he's avoiding the traps i set (i didn't wear gloves when i set them, so they must smell like me).

i think it's time to borrow a cat.


  1. You sound pretty fearless to me. That is amazing that you are going to be in a flash mob- that you will be dancing. I'm jealous of your courage- yes, you have courage. I really wish I could be there to see you shake your tail. xo

  2. and you have an amazing heart and talent! (do we sound like we're coming back from Oz or what?) i wish you could be here too, but i'd steal you for a long, long coffee catch-up before we'd even get to the train. and don't worry. i'll post a video.

  3. That is awesome! I would totally do that, but would have those same nerves until it started. Although, worst come to worst, you do one dance move and realize no one else is and stop... really not too bad! And how AWESOME when that doesn't happen and all these random people are doing awesomely ridiculous things with you! :o) (Also, I realize I just used "awesome" three times in this, but I couldn't find one that I wanted to take out.)

  4. My friend always reminds me when I am nervous before a show that being nervous means you care about what you're doing, because if you didn't you wouldn't be nervous and I think that's a good place to be. Also you have made yourself into a pretty wicked dancer, you have such a great sense of style and impress me every week! You look so natural.

  5. haha that sounds like so much fun! i'd love to try something like that sometime, it seems like a great new experience :)
