I went contra dancing last night, despite feeling lazy and wanting to stay home. I had a great time, but not because of the contra, though my body is definitely feeling better for the workout. A dance buddy introduced me to a new kind of dance that's danced to Blues music (I think it's called slow blues dancing)- which apparently happens at the park every other Sunday evening, but isn't on the website anywhere(??). Very sexy, very improvisational. We ended up talking until 2:30am about everything under the sun, which was delightful, but cold. I got home at 3:30am and slept until 1:30pm. Making good use of my last day of freedom, I guess!

Part of my problem getting to dances lately is that contra just doesn't challenge me anymore. It's fun, but no longer fills me with a fiery joy. New challenges would be good. Waltz is still a challenge, but I've been restricting myself to only going to the waltzes put on by Waltz Time (only on the 1st and 3rd Sundays) because I enjoy them more than the other two companies who put on Sunday afternoon waltzes. I think I may have to stop being so picky if I want to actually have time to dance. And I think I shall try this Blues thing. Besides, it's a lot easier to get out on a Sunday evening than a Friday evening lately.

The new job starts tomorrow. Time to go find out what I signed up for. You may start the countdown to disillusionment...now. I'm not sure how much internet time I'm going to get, so I may not be as much of an lj-presence in the future. We shall see.
