Oh good luck! I'm sure you will dazzle, in every way :)

And totally off topic, but Dum Dum always makes me think of Night at the Museum. "You have gum gum for Dum Dum?"

I wish I could be there! (We'll be just barely south of the border this weekend . . . a little late, though. ;o)

Have a grand time!

Shan said...

Hey thanks guys!

Kate, of course now I'm laughing about the Easter Island head, but in this case you say it like "doom". It's the bass note of the dumbek (DOOMbeck) drum, played in the centre, and "tek" and "ka" are the lighter notes, played at the edges.

Cool, thanks for the explanation. Have I mentioned how much I love language? :)

Gwen said...

You will be fabulous as always! Just have fun and remember you are doing this for you, not for anybody else. I love you and think you are a lovely dancer!

I wish you tips and cupcakes, and I wish me more time to read, so I can get caught up here. That book-bits post looks intriguing.

Jo said...

Break a leg, er uh, knock 'em dead. Is that better?

Post some of your yummy recipes from the class.

Ames said...

So? How did it go? We want pictures of you and the big mounds of tips.

Oh dear I am a bit late for wishing you luck (I am sorry) so I will wish you retroactive luck.

I am sure you were fabulous! I hope you had fun too!
