Heh... Tesco had those listed in the children's toys and games section of their online store last year. There were a few complaints.

There's some places down here that offer pole dancing/stripping aerobics classes.

Sounds awesome [Smile]

Apparently pole dancing can be good exercise

Of course - I demand video proof.

Well for a bad valentine's gift would probably be a box of tampons. Simply because it's just a bad gift.

I got a wonderful gift, and there is a studio north of here (about an hour away, near the beach) which does aerobic pole-dancing classes.

Something to think about, though I'd have to wear my glasses.

I participated in a belly-dancing festival once. I'll have to see if I can dig up a pic somewhere... It was back when I was younger and more androgynous and could get away with wearing make-up. I hear I was pretty good, but I didn't actually belly-dance, it was more of a modern dancing thing with belly-dancers all around me.

I bought myself beer for Valentine's Day. The gift was appreciated. I'll spare you the romantic details about how I thanked me after I went to bed.

International Quirkyalone Day, less an anti-Valentine's Day and more an anti-establishment Valentine's Day.

And yes, I consider myself a Quirkyalone who happened to meet another Quirkyalone, and now we're Quirkytogether.

The book's pretty good, and if you're not in the mood for the headaches of The book's pretty good, and if you're not in the mood for the headaches of [hearts] Womantic Twoo Wuv [hearts] , this is definitely a community to look into.

Hmm...those would indeed be some amusing pictures! If you find them, let me know! I'd love to take a gander and maybe get a giggle or two!

If I find them I'll slap one in my profile for a while. You'll have to wait until after Tuesday- I have no scanner at home.

Your giddiness spurred me into action- I just finished rummaging through the box of photos. I found a pic from the event, but was unable to find any stage-shots. Settle for a posed (not dancing), off-stage shot in costume? I must warn you that the silliness is diminished when you don't see the belly-dancers all around me. It's not as exotic as you might be imagining: No belly, no harem pants, no sword. Lots of make-up, though.
