yes, a post is due. a post about So You Think You Can Dance is even more due. (is that possible?)

SO...initial favourites? obviously we all love twitch, right? seems like such a nice guy. great dancer. kherington...okay. but their hiphop routine was FANtastic last night - so in sync (not to be confused with n'sync). but by the time we got to the end of the show, (which was excruciatingly long...2 hours? c'mon.) they might have been forgotten. but i know they'll reel in the votes nonetheless as the favs.

i dislike the tall-sies. you know, kourtni and matt. they hadn't done anything great since the show started (okay, last week wasn't bad but i was still riding on the hate-train). so i'm bashing them before they're even on stage (ninja mask?) and then they bust out that fantastic contemporary routine. wow. i have to admit that it was so good. and not your typical contemporary, which i liked. holla for the mohawk girl. so i think they'll still be in it tonight. unless america is just blindly hating like i was. shoot.

and speaking of tall...kat. 5'9 isn't that tall. why are we all blah blah blah kat's so tall? maybe dancers are just short. sure...she's wearing crazy heels but so could you, nigel.

then adam - the judge. yes, he drew out the critiques but the judges were definitely told to take as much time as possible to try to make the show the whole 2 hours so don't critisize him for that. he is just the best judge ever. somehow he's able to start his critique with something positive yet honest and then give actual advice...that's usable. unlike being on the hot tamale train. "umm...thanks? but what can i do better next time?" (yeah, yeah, i much as we all claim to hate mary murphy, i can see you getting happy for the couples that make it on the train...)

and then the suprise ending with joshua dancing the samba? that was unreal. the hips on that guy were too funny. "i thought he hood!" and what a difference bangs made on the girl! (shoot...what's her name?) wow. great dance.

if you came over and watched SYTYCD with'd be annoyed. i try to make as many comments as possible before the dance is over so that when a judge says something that i'd just said, i can say, "i knew it". very annoying. and most of the time, i don't know it. :) but i'm going to tell you about it here anyways.

in the bottom three tonight? courtney and gev, chris and comfort, and thayne and chelsea. yes, i like courtney and gev too but everyone was so good last night. i guess for the third couple, we'll just really see who's not liked...then chris will go. as for the definitely won't be comfort. (fingers crossed). those are the predictions. tune in later tonight for the the show. probably a better option.

the only thing better than sytycd is sytycd and tivo. did you like that i waited until after 10pm to call? nice. i wish we had watched together last night, cause i called those two going.

Yes 2 hours is so ridiculous! It's way better when I download it and watch it without the commercials. I also love twitch, but my favs right now are still Katee and Joshua.

i'm also loving katee and joshua, close second are mark and chelsie. wish I could watch with all you ladies, on tivo, over some tasty bevvies...miss you much!

oh, I also forgot to mention in my first comment - I am always talking to the TV, and Dallas thinks it is weird. This is why it would be more fun to watch with you ladies. However, when I do watch with my Edmonton girlfriends, we often clap at the end of really great routines.
