Newfound Guilty Pleasure: Dancing With the Stars

I have never really been a fan of Dancing with the Stars. I’ve been a huge fan of the Mexican incarnation of the show, but the American Version never quite caught my eye, until Monday night, well, Wednesday, when i found the show on ABC.com since I missed it because of Heroes.

One of my fist questions was: whose brilliant idea was it to include the old lady (whose name alas, i have forgotten (no disrespect meant to the old lady) sure she may be strong but she’s old! Dancing in this competition is clearly not for her, i really want to go scream at the doctor who approved that!!

But in my opinion, the stage belonged to Cody Linley. (two things: One, that is one amazing body! and Two: Damn, that guy can move!, plus his partner is . . . interesting-looking?) Although he did carry that universally complacent rebel attitude about him, he managed to impress me, and dance, which i suppose is the whole point of the competition.

Dance is of course, one thing that i cannot do, and one thing that i will never do. i am just not capable of that kind of happiness i suppose, that kind of display. Although my ideas are often on display, there is something terribly mundane about dancing. I understand the emotional and, if no other word can describe it, spiritual power of dance, but i really cannot participate. Maybe that’s why seeing other people dance is so interesting, because you can tell quite a bit about them, in their dance.

So anyway, back to Dancing with the Stars. Kim Kardashian, who if it weren’t for Chelsea Handler, i would have no idea who the hell she is,  was voted off, which means that there are ten couples left, and my favorite (Julianne and Cody, naturally) are still there, making me happy, (usually the people i like get voted off competitions fairly quickly, a good example of my eccentric tastes perhaps?) Although (strange i keep using that word today) i don’t think that Cody and Julianne count as odd favorites. Maybe the age thing Cody being eighteen and all, but that just means he has more energy and, anthropologically speaking, more to gain in all relevant fields. He already has the sex appeal (at least, i think he does), his body can take more damage (unlike Cloris, her elasticity and healing properties are gone, much like a cup of already boiled green tea leaves) and the girl he’s paired with would give anyone incentive to aim for the stars (bad pun fully intended)

In overview, i have a newfound guilty pleasure: Dancing with the Stars, oh, and green tea, the one at starbucks, i am not kidding.
