SO I think I can Dance......


Seriously people, you saw me in CATS. I took random classes off and on growing up. I am not a 'dancer', but enjoy breaking out in spontaneous moments of movement. Imagine my dismay when, as a family, we sit down to watch So You Think You Can Dance and I burst out laughing at the the antics of the stay at home mom who auditioned from Utah. (you know the one- four small kids, one of which she dropped on the floor saying ..."I am such a good mom!" )

Any way- I was giggling at her moves when my kids exclaimed..."SHe dances like YOU mom!!" One by one, they all agreed... "That is exactly what you look like when you dance!"

I said "Well, I am trying to be funny for you. But when I want to, I can dance...."

"No you can't, mom." They insisted. "I saw you do a cool move once and I could tell it was totally on accident." Connley said.

Is that mean? *sniffle* What's a mom to do? Am I really that bad?

Just to make myself feel better, I am posting the paper that I was published on the cover..... a personal moment of fun..... but then again, as Hayden said, "You were only good in CATS because soemone else taught you the dance."

Ouch.

Haha! This post is so funny. I don't even claim to have moves. I know I look silly, so I don't even try. I'm sorry your kids think you dance funny. I thought you were great in Seussical, although that dancing wasn't really what I'd call "moves". I didn't watch "so you think you can dance", so I have no idea what audition you are talking about. But I'd love to watch it. Do you think it might be on youtube?

I found it. Her name is Nicole Downer. And her audition is on youtube.

I can't believe it- I think FOX has an army of fulltime employees that delete any of their programs off of you tube- there have been many cool videos and they are all gone when you go back to view them- including Nicole Downers. I am so sad! I already deleted her off of my DVR and I was dying to show her to my brother. Oh Well....
