finger-warming laptop

The time of year has arrived when I wish that I could flip a switch on my laptop and have all the heat that leaks out the bottom onto my lap get blown gently through they keyboard onto my freezing fingers.

Also, I still want a sauna.

Blindfolded dance! Details

Join me for a blindfolded dance at the Dance Complex in Central Square on February 11. We'll be in Studio #3.

Spotting training: 3PM. If you are interested in spotting, either this time or in the future, dancingwolfgrrl and I will be training folks for that from 3PM to 3:30.

Dancing: 3:45PM. If you only want to dance, you should plan to get there between 3:30 and 3:45. Please arrive on time! We have the studio until 5, and I'll aim to wrap up the dancing by about 4:45.

Details: No street shoes can be worn in the studio, so plan to dance barefoot or in soft dance shoes. My hostly urge is thwarted by a rule against food in the studio, but I highly recommend that you bring something to snack on in the hallway or after the dance. Also, while there are drinking fountains, you will probably be happier if you bring water. DO bring a blindfold! I will have some extras, but probably not enough for everyone.

It would be very useful for me to know if you're planning to come, and if so, for what part. This is an open invitation to my friends and friends of friends, but I'd like to have a sense of how many I'm expecting!

As you know, this is the first time I've organized something like this, so if I appear to be overlooking something essential, feel free to bring it up. I have high hopes that it will go well and we'll want to do more of them in the future!

Puerto Rico!

Next Wednesday morning, I will be heading off for the not-so-wilds of Puerto Rico! Many of you admired the sundresses in which I spent most of the summer. Some of you admired them so much you wanted to know where I got them. I will be returning to that dress shop. If you want to put in an order, let me know.
