Just Another Manic Monday

I started the weekend with great plans but then lazed away the weekend and wasn't nearly as productive as I should have been. I did manage to buy the Diva cat a new bed. For some reason, she had scratched a hole in her old bed. She'd claw in one corner of the bed before lying down, perhaps thinking she was out in the wild, creating a bed in the dirt. Instead she was making a hole in the foam and also was leaving little bits of foam throughout the house when they dropped off her fur. Now she has a sack bed that is soft and fluffy. She's not sure yet if she likes it.

I also caught up with America's Best Dance Crew. Those kids are amazing. The dancing and the choreography are just fabulous. The teams are all so good, I hate to see any of them lose. Speaking of dance, I also watched some episodes of Superstars of Dance. I don't like this show much but love the U.S. team, The Groovaloos. Some of the other dance teams are worth watching but a lot of the shows bores me and the moderator Michael Flatley definitely bores me. Makes me almost (almost) long for Ryan Seahorse. Flatley is aptly named because he has the flatest, most monotone manner I've ever heard in an MC. You could fall asleep listening to him. I tape the shows and fast forward through him and the judges so I just watch the dances. I fast forward through a lot of them too and, believe me, some of them are better for it. But The Groovaloos are worth waiting for!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ABDC this season! Did you notice the team that has two ex-SYTYCD folk? The crew is called Quest I think. I don't like the bonecrusher people - they are gross and scary, but still amazing.

I love the Quest group and the all girl Beat Girl (?) group. And the cloggers. Don't like the bone crushers - wish they were gone instead of the group that left - though that group would have lost soon anyway.

Should have said, 'don't like the bone crushers as much as others'. I do appreciate their dancing just think it is kind of a 'one trick' thing that will get old.

I agree with Debra. Hok and Dominic (now D-Trix) are great as are the rest of Quest.
The bone crushers stop, dislocate their joints, relocate them and then dance some more. Their "trick" interrupts the flow. I hope they are out soon. The great thing is there is a clogging group (not "clog dancing", Mario) - the bad news is there are better cloggers out there. These cloggers seemed challenged by the "high knees" element last week. What? That's what cloggers do.

You know, that lead clogger guy is also someone who made an appearance on SYTYCD.

Deb
the clogger on SYTYCD -
Karen remembered him but I didn't.
Did he make it to Las Vegas?

Further google research shows he made it to Vegas and was eliminated in the Samba round.
