So You Think You Can Dance Week 2

After reading the new book by Stephenie Meyers called, "The Host", and putting a load of laundry in...I decided to be active and take my kids to the city pool. I squeezed into my new Hapari swimming suit, which I love, I wished it had a better body to adorn, but I love it nonetheless...It does make me feel like the shiz when I wear it!

Anyhow, I rushed home to get dinner ready so that it would be done before my husband and I went out on the town to scope out good photography spots! You thought I was going to say that I wanted to have dinner done before So You Think You Can Dance came on...silly people...That is why I have DVR!


Driving around was fun and the scenery is just beautiful where I live...I scoped out some fun places to take pictures and we lost our light so we headed home. I was like a little girl waiting to eat her first piece of chocolate cake anticipating tonights second night of SYTYCD.

So you will understand my going postal on my TV when I find out that our Dish Network was "experiencing technical difficulties" one hour of the 2 hour recorded show! That's right...I missed the first city tonight! I was SOOOOO upset...in my mind I was jumping up and down screaming and stomping like a teenager because I missed even a second of my favorite reality TV obsession!

The lady with the gray pants and the black shirt from SLC, UT should stick to her acting career or financial consulting...the mom with her four kids, I applaud your bravery, but you need to take a break from the kiddo's when you try out on National Television...just putting it out there! I know people don't agree with me or think I am very rude, but if you actually watch the show...you would know how good you need to be--yes, yes, I know they put some of the people on there for the "Television" aspect of it...so I'll shut up! I actually thought the guy that graduated from Juilliard in 3 years was amazing...yea he dances like a girl, but he is incredible! I understand why they didn't take him, his personality, but he IS an amazing dancer...just calling it like I see it, his dancing flowed so well into his acro-gymnastics! There is SO much more I could say, but I'll save it!

But here are my absolute favorites from the two days!

I loved this girl...I felt the same way with my older sister that this girl felt about her Mom...you do put a lot of pressure on yourself...hers is by far on a grander scale, but DANG my sister is amazing and is recognized a lot for it!




She was so great! I also related to her, except I never did ballroom, which I totally regret now!

Oh, I totally agree with you. The guy from Julliard was amazing...but I guess he danced like a girl. Oh well. Did you see the guy with all the muscles that was absolutely incredible too? Wow, he was so strong! I DO hope that you missed the transvestite though. Yikes!
I loved the two girls videos that you posted. Yay for SLC!

And your flashback post was great too! SO fun to read about!

omg, It's like major panic attack time when your cable / internet/ phone / dish goes out and YOU have a show to record. Doesn't the planet know that everything revolves around keeping US happy?

I loved the ballroom girl, but what was crazy is that they did this spotlight on a girl named Shelley (I think red top, super skinny, along with her friend) ANYWAYS, she was on Brighton's drill team and she won not only Miss Drill Utah but Miss Drill USA in Long Beach. My friend Lindsey from my drill team (hillcrest) was in the top five and I went down to support her in the LBC. ANYWAYS, she was amazing back then so I was expecting her to whip out something amazing, but then again she said she hadn't danced for like five years so... ANYWAYS, she made it to Vegas, so that was cool.
So...long enough for you?

Okay, I have to add that the gray pants lady was killing me. I can't imagine her acting, she seems so...well... anyways...I fast forward most of the comments of the judges when the contestants are really bad because I feel really bad for them, but she was a little delusional.
But I have to say that my favorite of all was the Asian B Dancer from last week who slid on his head. He was the biggity bomb, but he didn't make it to Vegas. I'll shut up now.
