To all the boys I’ve loved before

The ones I’ve sung Bastard to

Picked on

Laughed at

And generally used as my play things when I’m doing a show

It is with (some, but not a lot of) sadness, that I regret (a bit) to inform you

That you’ve been replaced

Yep, I’ve upgraded

Please try to understand

Don’t be upset

Don’t do anything rash

Unless being rash involves sending me flowers, or food
In that case, rash away!

It’s just, well…

I call him Slinky, but his given name is Turtle (don’t ask)

Maybe it’s his cute attempt at a Pirate’s of the Caribbean beard

And the fact it looks more like four sad, stray braided pubes

Or the fact that all the shit I threw at him last night

Stuck to him like that can of Jim Beam to his palm

And he was such a top sport about it

So, for now, he is the new ‘chosen one’

Until tonight’s show, anyway

 

birthday dog pile

Last time I mentioned my brother’s birthday on here
I did it with some embarrassing pics
I’m a bitch like that
This time I thought I’d be nicer
And post some great pics of him and his boys
I love these photos
They make me smile

Remind me just how fun my 3 nephews are
And how being their Dad, is my brother’s favourite job (he has a few)
I love watching him with his boys
Especially when they beat the shit out of him *dog pile

Happy Birthday Bro!

 

*dog pile: a group of people jumping on on person and creating a tower of people while crushing the people on bottom = awesome.

As part of every episode of RHYTMS & ROOTS, I have been having a lesson in the dance associated with the genre of music we’re showcasing

I think my favourite (read; the one that didn’t make me all sweaty and hurty) has been ‘blues dancing’
It’s not choreographed, and relies on you having to ‘relax’ and just ‘go with’ the music

That’s totally the vibe you get when you look at John’s (one of my awesome instructors) face in this pic

Mine is more, ‘I can’t believe this dude can hold up my body weight, fuck I hope he doesn’t drop me’
