And speaking of photogoot, his mother once told me a story about her (then ex) husband. "When he was in the military and I was a stay-at-home mom, I spent hours each and every day slaving over the iron pressing his uniform. It wasn't until after we'd been divorced did I find out that all the time I was doing this, he could have had his uniforms pressed and starched on base for $3.00. THREE DOLLARS!"

Yet my wife bitches because she has to drop off my dry cleaning...AND pick it up. *sigh*

Thanks again to irulan_amy for suggesting Big Bad Toy Store for my new Viper Mk. VII!

I remember the first time I had a Harry Ramsden's battered sausage. My heart exploded and burst out my chest. It was fantastic. Welcome back somebritinmass.

"The Hustle" is the name of a partnered dance that developed as a direct result of the Disco music created and made popular in the 1970's. Originally thought to be named after a tune called "The Hustle" in 1975 it has been noted that the dance may have actually inspired the tune. Written and arranged by Van McCoy and performed by the Soul City Symphony, The Hustle had a syncopated drum rhythm with a heavy downbeat that invoked a Salsa-like foot rhythm and made a person want to dance all night. Now known in some spots as "The Spanish Hustle" the quite simple at first hustle had became more difficult as it evolved with the trendy disco music of the time. The 1&2 3&4 foot rhythm had quickly changed by adding in a 2 beat follow-up to slow the movement down. This change created 1&2 3&4 5 6 as an early variation known as "The Rope". As new "Moves" (back then called "Turns") became more inventive and intricate, foot rhythm changed accordingly. Now 1&2 3&4 5 6 would soon become 6&1 2 3&4 5 placing a single beat between each syncopation. It actually makes more sense if you look at 2 sets together; 1&2 3&4 5 6&1 2 3&4 5 6&1 and so on. Eventually the dance got stuck on the 6&1 2 6&1 2 6&1 2 which made it no longer necessary to count to 6 thus &1 2 3 &1 2 3 was born. Anything swing related usually came from other than the east coast cities with NY being the leader. Further advancement in The Hustle came from Showboating in clubs, and the incorporation of other skills a dancer might have like Martial Arts, gymnastics, Ballroom, Ballet or just plain attitude. The dance is still today kept alive by the oldtimers and the newcomers that refuse to let disco die.

Look at your Viper! :D Very nice!

And uh, just what is he doing to his shoe?

This was the day of our 16 hour photo safari in DC. We hired a Pygmy Sherpa to guide us through the city and handle our expedition equipment. I had but one stipulation added to our arrangements with him, he was to ride in the trunk whenever we traveled by automobile. In this photograph our trusted guide is handing out from the trunk equipment, including my shoes, for the next leg of or journey. Isn’t that obvious? :-)

Perfectly, I don't know how I missed it. ;)

According to galinda822 he was refusing to let disco die.

I never looked at a blowup of my facial expression before in this shot. I’ve got a hint of the white-mans overbite going on there.

Well someone has to keep it alive.

He's doing the hokey-pokey.

The last time I did the hokey-pokey I was on roller skates in the early 80’s, no kidding!

Yet my wife bitches...
Perhaps sir, you are looking at the glass half-empty. If her incessant bitching is driving you up a wall, blogging about it isn't going to help. In fact, it will make her bitch more, and I trow the topic will be your insensitivity. Way to go, cannon fodder!

In fact, if you are bitching about her bitching, it just goes to show that you have areas in which you need to mature yourself. For Christ's sake, this is the woman you allegedly love. One might think that you would find this behavior "cute" as part of her personality--the thing that makes her her-- and find some way of removing the irritation to her in turn removing the irritation to yourself. You sir, are an ass, and a bigger one then me for post my story about Amy and the flowers.

Way to go cannon fodder indeed!

And I really don't think I've ever posted anything as embarrassing as your Amy debacle. Even when I was purposely making fun of myself!

How long have you been married? Oh that's right, never.

I told her first the story of photogoot's mom, then told her my response. She, as always, thought it was funny, albeit not as funny as I would never bang a goth chick, unless she was really hot.

I guess you just don't understand the dynamic yet. That's ok dude, someday you will.

still. It isn't wise. And yes, I would bang a hot goth chick.
