Quite true. I nearly fill a good sized duffle with hair and makeup products alone.
I have a tackle box for make up and a tackle box for jewelry
On a week-long work trip abroad this summer, I had less than half as much luggage as I brought for two days at a comp a week earlier.
What did you do to get the Vaseline out of your hair? I used Vaseline to slick my hair back for a costume party once, and I had to use Tide laundry detergent to wash the stuff out.
That while I might not feel like I've lost weight, other people have noticed that I no longer look like a sausage squeezed into a dress...
That there are more kinds of floors out there than the ones that collegiate competitions rent out, and while an NDCA floor may be slower and give you better control, it also hurts like a *&#@* afterward when you're dancing with proper foot and leg technique.
NDCA floors vary
I wound up just using shampoo (repeatedly) and time. It wound up being Monday before my hair started to feel like hair again (the competition was on Thursday), but my pro has informed me that as a guy, I have no grounds to complain about what I have to do to my hair for competitions.
You can use Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. We use it frequently to get oil based products out of marine life, feathers, down and all. It works quite well,,,how do I know? my children loved using Vaseline at Halloween, in their hair. What a mess.
Ah! So the Dawn commercials are true! LOL (there was one of the product where they're using it to clean seagulls after an oil spill)
I learned how much fun it can be to "play" with the spectators while dancing. Starting to feel more natural with the performance aspect.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the venues provide the floors? And, if so, then the quality of the floors would vary according to venue, rather than organization, yes?
you could get anything
I need to smile more when I'm dancing.
Another lesson learned for me....
I sat down to the comp's banquet dinner at a table across from a woman sitting alone. She was delightful, and we chatted for several minutes. She asked me questions about my dancing like.....what do you dance...Standard? I said yes. She said....oh, excellent....me too. I asked, are you dancing this weekend? She says.....no. I'm a judge. Oy!
I was totally embarrassed, but she was lovely about the whole thing. Live and learn!
It's what the internet recommended to get car oil off of my cat (don't even ask)...unfortunately, I couldn't find it in Aus.
Is your cat OK?
Yeah. When he was a kitten he went exploring and my neighbours had left some old car oil in a pan. He laid in it, because he was a stupid cat. Had to wash him about 5 times.
