In the 14 min before I leave for work I will touch on things I've been wanting to write about:
1. My boss/friend told me a couple days ago that she subscribes to National Geographic, and that each edition has some sort of informative map of the US...like light pollution, forests, etc. The last one mapped the density of the single population in the US. Evidently Chicago is FILLED with single women, the numbers are overwhelming. So is most of the NE coast. Places like Portland however have more men than women...
a. why did she tell me this? To make me feel better about being single, like it isn't my fault, the numbers are against me? To make me gay? To increase the value of her current boyfriend? To encourage me to move west?
b. I've never been to portland...and I don't want to go...the men can have it.
c. Then she said joining a sport is a good way to meet men. My god, what kind of romantic comedy do people think I'm acting in? Right now I'm pushing for the comedy.
2. Dance Troupe
The Ice Age dance was so much fun to make and went over so well with the crowds we decided to do it again....by it I mean make a dance. The 3 of us rented a dance studio I know of that is really cheap with the goal of just sweating and rolling around making up creative dance. I spent all night the day before looking at keyword:dance videos on YouTube.
data analysis: almost all dance, from high school talent shows to expensive music videos to korean performances with masks are based on the style set up by Michael Jackson back in the day. It is the movements that are thought of in segments, fluid yet curt and jolting that are popular EVERYWHERE...you wouldn't think there is a dance style right now because all music is so diverse etc etc...but I would argue there is a Definate pop movement that can be found in almost every hot dance right now, and it all seems fathered by M.J.
I want to do a different kind of dance really badly. Something that goes more to the side than focusing on the jerking movements, and something that is not communicating that I am sexy or want to get some sex. This sounds hard. But hopefully not as impossible as imagining a new color.
3. Is justin timberlake influencing fashion? Did he single handedly bring back the simple tie and suit vest?
4. I got a flat tire a week ago on my way to work. It took me 15 minutes in 13degree weather to change it. I got frost bite for real this time. I can't feel my finger tips and got a really big blister of dead skin on one finger. I tell everyone, and show it off. Is this really something to be proud of?
