Being "Out" (Plus: A Blog of the Weekend triple feature)

"Where have you been all week?"

Sorry, dear readers. The thing is that when I'm sick, I don't dance. When I don't dance, I have nothing to blog about, and you guys have nothing to read while you're slacking off at work. I got slammed with a nasty viral infection on Monday and I have not danced all week, although I'd wanted to go back today. This morning I spoke to one of the choreographers I'm working with, our conversation might have gone a little something like this:

Butterfly: Hey, I don't have the plague anymore. Can I come back to rehearsal now?
Gabriella: No.
Butterfly: Bummer. How about now?
Gabriella: Nope. Stay home and rest.
Butterfly: I did that already. It was boring.
Gabriella: Sorry. Come on Monday.

(I'm paraphrasing, but you get the idea. Interestingly enough, I'm at Keyser's house and not at home-- I needed to escape the palmetto bug in the kitchen a change of scenery.)

So, I'm afraid I won't have any new and exciting dance stories for you until after the weekend. Can I make it up to you with a Blog Of The Weekend Triple Feature? I sure can.


First up are two dance blogs by Houston writers. Dance Advantage is an informational dance blog for students, teachers, and studio owners (I share articles from Dance Advantage with my own students). Dancehunter provides interviews, previews, and reviews of performance happenings in Houston (and sometimes outside of Houston as well). These dance-related Houston blogs provide stuff that's actually useful (whereas mine is basically stories about backstage antics and jokes about booze), so that's awesome.

Next, I'm going to veer off-topic to present you Movies in Fifteen Minutes. It's hilarious and awesome and I kind of want to snuggle it a little. I've been reading through it a lot this week while I was busy not dancing, and I laughed so hard I scared the critters (Cleolinda Jones, the author, is also responsible for Cleoland, which is also rather exquisite).

Figures! Unfortunately, Dance Advantage is down for the count right now. *sigh* You picked a fine time to link me, Lucille ;)

Actually, it will hopefully be back up and running by Sunday. I'm wringing my hands until then. If anyone desires, most of my posts (with the exception of the most recent) are still at my old blogsite. Have a ball hanging out there until gets over the plague (apparently it's going around)!
