Solo Dance Parties

I currently have one lovely roommate, but we both work a lot and are busy young ladies so we usually only see each other in the evenings and on weekends.  We are often two ships passing in the night.

Soon I will have 3 roommates, so one of my biggest problems will be solved: dancing on my own.

Now this is not the cool, devil may care, dancing on my own that Robyn sings of.  I’m not sad that my some guy I like is kissing another girl at the club.  I’m dancing on my own in my room, in socks, a la Risky Business (wearing pants though…sometimes).

I’m not a good dance by any means, but just really get a kick out of turning up the jams and jumping around.  Dancing alone gives you a chance to try moves that you would be too embarrassed to do in public, but which are super fun to do (ie the sprinkler, mashed potato, etc).  I usually do this when I’m getting ready to go out, or on Fridays when I get home from work.  These are times of hopeful expectancy, looking forward to what could happen.

When I told my future roomies about my solo dance parties they laughed and decided to make it a house rule that no one is allowed to dance alone if others are present in the apartment.  Hopefully we’ll have a good speaker system and can really pump it up.

Here are few of the songs on my “dance” playlist, for your enjoyment/for you to trying dancing alone to:

Man Crush of the Week: The League’s Pete and Kevin

It is FINALLY September, which means that the NFL season has begun.  Boys and girls everywhere are doing their research, setting their lineups and talking smack on the fantasy message boards.  In honor of my second favorite time of the year, this week’s man crush is actually a bromance: Pete and Kevin from FX’s The League.

A couple of chill bros, hanging out, watching football.

Pete and Kevin are best friends, and terrible people.  Their conniving and collusion against the other members of their fantasy league is unparalleled and really fun to watch.  They are friends that can take it and dish it out even worse.

Kevin is the commissioner of their league, which I can relate to, as I’m the commish of the Gentle Rage league.  He is constantly having to put up with the ridiculous requests of the others but he has sadly never won the coveted Shiva trophy.  Yes, they named their trophy after their dorky high school valedictorian/taker of Kevin’s virginity.

Pete is recently divorced and probably not someone your parents would want you to date.  He hooks up with Ruxin’s AU pair, vultures Andre’s online date matches, and is obsessed with the fantasy league.

These guys are terrible, but their friendship is deep and they would probably do anything for each other.  Except maybe make a trade before gameday.  They are cute in a manly sort of way and I would definitely want to watch a game at Gibson’s with them.
