Thursday Thirteen - What a f?????

Okay, so this is that "wild and crazy" thing that I did on my 43rd birthday. It's probably nowhere near as exciting as I suggested it might be. But I figured I would capture this before my knees (and back, and hips, and ankles) gave out on me one day. And since I've already shared my ass with the blogosphere...

Thirteen reasons why posting the following probably wasn't such a good idea...

1/ My son thought I was joking, and I did it because he didn't think I would. Don't do this sort of thing on a dare. Especially not from an 8 year old.

2/ This is nowhere near as cute as a video of my daughter potty training.

3/ My kids may not speak to me once they're old enough to REALLY know what embarrassment is.

4/ My husband doesn't see me move my hips like that very often. Ahem.

5/ It proves that I'm a nutcase because I did this while sober. Cannot blame the pomtini.

6/ It shows my nice gut, lack-o-rack and my flat butt.

7/ It'll be out there. Forever.

8/ People who know me read this. Oy.

9/ So You Think You Can Dance Suburbia... here I come ?!! Uh, not likely.

10/ Desperate Housewives? Yeah, probably more like it.

11/ Despite my fervent wish, the men of Lipstick Jungle still won't notice me.

12/ Even Jennifer Beals has moved on.

13/ It may turn more people off of Bodyjam than onto it.

But it's a testament of my love for all things Bodyjam.

Hello, my name is Karen and I'm a Bodyjam addict.

Well, it was either this or pole-dancing... which I haven't attempted yet, by the way.

Nor should I.

Let me preface:
a) This was the first bodyjam routine I was exposed to. An oldie but a goodie. Most of the kids in my Saturday class probably weren't even born when the movie came out.
b) This was about the 10th time I did the routine before the video took. Because I am so technically challenged I didn't even realize that I didn't hit the "on" button the first several times. Which also explains the long intro where I'm debating whether I'm really going to do this, and the long pause of exhaustion in between .. and the big "L" in the middle of my forehead.
c) It's probably over a minute too long. I can't edit either. Torturous, I know.
d) The sound is not exactly wonderful, because the only version of the song I could find was on Youtube.
e) At least the lighting is dim; thank goodness for small mercies.
f) I DID have a stiff drink before I hit "publish post". Yeah, it was before noon, so sue me.
g) Those of you who want a live repeat performance at Blogher '09 will have to show me the booze... and then I'll think about it.
h) Okay, I'll friggin' get on with it already...








And I ain't no Hollaback girl either...

P.S. I was going through my photos on my computer and came across some I took of you and Little G last year at D's house. I WAS going to post them on FB, but decided to run them by you first! ;) LOL! *sigh* Horrible and boring being on bed rest, but what can ya do? We don't want "Junior" being born 3 months too early...

Zamming? no...hmmmm can't remember but it is very similiar!! I'm going to work on finding half of your energy and I'll be doing much better!!!
