Belly Dancers

Peng and I went to a Moroccan restaurant Friday after work. Despite the fact that the food stays with you for a few days and makes you look even more pregnant than you already do, it was pretty tasty.

They have a belly dancer on Friday and Saturday night which is a nice touch but it's just so awkward. She comes over to our table, shaking her thang, and I'm not quite sure where to look. When I look at her face she smiles this weird, concentrated smile so I look at her belly and feel even odder that I'm staring at her naked belly so I look back at her face and I'm back to that smile...

FINALLY, she walks to another table and now I can watch without feeling obligated to smile and nod back...

Unfortunately, she came over again; but, I couldn't stand it anymore so I blurted out "Where do I look?!?" And unfortunately, her answer was "where ever you'd like"...

eww...Maybe that's what made us gassy...

i LOVE belly dancing! last summer, breanna and my friend coleen and i all took bellydancing lessons at the community center near my house. it was uber fun to learn to shake our thangs. but you do get this ultra concentrated look on your face when you do it. what i liked the most about the class was that there were all these women of different shapes sizes and ages in a room together learning how to move muscles that we didn't even know existed. at the end of each class, we would learn a new folk dance while holding hands and dancing in a circle (like at those greek restaraunts were you get to throw plates). i absolutely loved it!

hee hee. a harem.

this woman i met in germany told me that she took belly dancing while she was pregnant because it works out muscles that you need during childbirth. i am totally gonna do that (when i pg someday in the very farrrrr future)!

That's funny because I saw a belly dancer this weekend too. It was oddly captivating.

Aww...how sweet!! Actually, YES i'm busy at work now. i should have started this blog a year ago when we didn't have shit to do. Now i barely have time for lunch, which honestly, i prefer...

I was thinking about you this morning though, trying to figure out where i'd move if i won the lottery. and if i moved to portland, i already had a built-in friend! course i'd probably have a LOT of friends, if they knew i won the lottery...

doncha know? we don't care about money in oregon. (you'd be able to sniff out the ones who do real quick like) we are just down to earth, stinky, unshaven and non (or un, not sure) materialistic.
