I am "Waltzing Matilda" not because I have any particular fondness for The Land Down Under, although, I have had the chance to get to know a lovely lady who lives there and think it must be a beautiful place to behold.
No. As you can tell from the banner up above, I like dancing. Ballroom dancing to be specific. Fox Trot, Tango, Swing or Samba! So when a friend of mine introduced me to Dancing With The Stars, I was hooked. Now, before anyone starts hurling BUTs at me let me just say that I know... most of the costumes are incredibly immodest, covering no more than a couple of tissues would cover and I agree... some of the choreography should be kept behind closed doors and no... I never did that kind of dancing (more Arthur Murray, less Lambada), BUT (hey... it's my blog and I'll hurl some buts if I want to) ... I really like this show!
I enjoy seeing these "celebrities" (mostly unknowns to me; I think I could identify 4 of the contestants from this season and that was only because you can't live in Dallas and not know who Mark Cuban is) from all different backgrounds find out that it. is. hard! It is so much fun to see who will become a performer and which performers can't dance. I like seeing if I can guess how the judges will score the dances...did I see what they saw? Not like I am an expert, but I had enough training to tell good from bad. (Wayne Newton was baaaaddd!)
So there. My guilty pleasure. Just so you know. I won't turn it on while the kids are around because of the tissue trouble. I watch it online and enjoy it alone. I don't even inflict it on Husband. Wouldn't want him to feel any pressure to put on some boogie shoes although he does look mighty fine in a tux!
Now I know Danielle Bean was hooked on Lost and Elizabeth watches Monday Night Football though she claims its just to see her hubby. (Sure it is!: )
Are you brave enough to admit your guilty pleasure?
