What have I learned today? (By "today" I mean Saturday, technically from midnight to midnight).

* My 15+ year old Converse hightops are still in good shape and comfortable. I dug them out to go dancing to 80s music with [livejournal.com profile] hotcabanasauce, [livejournal.com profile] chezmax, and [livejournal.com profile] indigofire_net; and my feet didn't hurt after two hours- wow. Why did I ever stop wearing them?

* I still enjoy dancing. I'm less self-conscious a dancer than I was the last time I was in a club, whenever the hell that was. (2000? Underworld in Boston?) (Is that claim sensible, or is it wishful thinking? Well, I know that last night I was indeed dancing like nobody was watching... Yay self-confidence?)

* The navy jacket which my Mom bought me in 1990, and which has sat in my closet for 15+ years since it's not appropriate for dinner-wear or other semiformal purposes, by virtue of ill fit and ugly buttons, still fits well enough for dancing, looks fairly snappy, and as a bonus, the inside breast pocket fits a water-bottle.

* The local production of The Importance of Being Earnest is worth seeing (it also runs the 10th-12th).

* As much as I wish Home Hardware were open after 5:30pm on Saturday, it ain't.

* That my new boss bought me a nice new computer for when I start my new job at the end of the month. Mmmmmm, brand new iMac with 2g memory...

* That our lawn possibly still exists, and might be visible in another week of warm weather like this.

* And I learned that our new back-yard neighbours are German and have not one but two small humans in the house.

What did you learn today?

At Ab, it's pretty easy to dance like nobody is watching because it's crowded enough that people aren't watching. They can't see you :)

That's true; though I've been in clubs that packed before where I did feel self-conscious. But, like, eons ago, also in a less het crowd, when I was younger, which I think made some difference to me at the time.

German neighbors can be a lot of fun. I suppose one can say that of any neighbors. I hope they'll be fun anyway.

I'm not sure what I learned on the 5th, there must have been something.

Today I have learned I will have to let go of the plans I had for today (nothing important, mostly paying bills etc) and rest 'cuz my cold is there (but as far as I can tell, I'm winning, because I'm better today than yesterday).

Yuck, colds. I know where you're coming from, I just got over a head-cold myself.
