Notes from the gutter.

Did you know...

...that if you get dizzy while turning in one direction, turning in the other direction will counter-act everything nicely? Oddly enough, it's true. I learned that in dance class Sunday. We were working on the barrel turn, which involves a lot of swooping and spinning, so our teacher offered us this life-saving tip. Belly dance generally is the great equalizer: everyone in the West is just as awkward as everyone else...except when it comes to turns. That's where you can see if someone's had dance training. Those lucky souls spin effortlessly across the floor, while the rest of us are whamming into walls and bouncing off the mirrors.
