The two day workshop I signed up for has been really fun and informative. Things I have learned so far, besides the obvious of veil play and technique (and it's only Saturday!)

1. I am not the fattest belly dancer ever.

2. Some women just should *not* wear the sequin bra, no matter how confident and self assured they are. (No, it wasn't me....see #1)

3. Having a large Muslim woman yelling "Left cheek! Right cheek! Left cheek! Right cheek! DON'T WIGGLE YOUR KNEES! Do it with your ass! Left cheek! Right cheek!" at you for 2 hours straight, is not as scary as one might think.

4. Flexing your gluets for 2 hours straight not only makes them completely numb (eventually), but also makes you react completely differently to music later. (I no longer shake my booty, I flex it.)

5. Skinny girls who immediately pick up on not only the butt thing, but also doing pelvic locks in tandem with the butt thing are evil. And the ones who can walk while they do it are pure, unadulterated evil.

6. It is very dangerous to take a credit card into the dance studio with me. Especially when said dance studio is closing tomorrow, and "EVERYTHING MUST GO!"

7. I can wear a size 16/18 workout pants now, and I am *this* close to comfortably wearing the the 14/16 pants that I also bought.

8. I'm almost glad I don't have a husband who will yell at me for what I spent today. Almost.

I'm going to go ice my butt, now.
