    Ok, this is not really a whine - it's more like why would a lead do this? I went to my studio's party Saturday night, and a lead that I hadn't danced with before asked me dance cha cha. He opens with this silver DVIDA figure; he doesn't lead it that well, but I recognize it anyway. He pulls out a couple of other advanced moves during the dance. At the end, he tells me what a good dancer I am.

    My thing is this - why would a lead pull out advanced moves at the start, with a dancer he doesn't know, that may or may know be able to follow them. If you're a lead trying to show off, maybe, if that's the goal. I think it would be a better plan to open with some basic stuff, and if that goes well, then try something advanced.

    It might be that he's just learned those patterns and wants to see if he can lead them with someone who wasn't in the class with him and doesn't know what's coming. Maybe he saw you dancing with others and noted that you are an advanced dancer. Or, yeah, maybe he just does his comp routines with everyone he dances with. Did you watch him dance with anyone else?

    But your ginger snaps more than make up for that! I would gladly give up chocolate for your sinfully delicious ginger snaps!

    No, just discomfort. I don't like it any more, and it doesn't sit well with me. IMHO, this is a disaster.

    also, not every food intolerance behaves like an allergy but can still possibly be treated...most of my husbands issues were cleared up by his acid reflux med

    The group class before the party was rumba, not cha cha. Usually bronze patterns are taught in the group classes, not the silver patterns. He may have picked up the pattern from another class, or possibly from the DVIDA videos that are available online.

    The cha cha happened very early in the party, and I don't think I had danced with anyone else yet. I saw him dancing with other follows, and my feeling is he was trying to show off all he knew. Other advanced leads attend the parties, but usually they have the sense to start out with basics with a follow they don't know, before moving onto advanced patterns if the follow seems like she can handle the basics.

    On April 23, I placed the textbook orders for the classes I'm teaching this fall. I know this, because that's what the email confirmations say. But apparently "confirmation" doesn't mean what I thought it meant, since the bookstore has no record of any books being ordered for one of my classes. They now have a whole week and a half to get hold of the books. Oh well, better to discover it now than on the first day of class, I suppose.

    Not sure how to tell my coworker that she makes bad coffee...I've had a lot of my regular customers say it...they complain that it's bitter and too hot...and I watch her. She burns the coffee grounds by leaving the handle in too long before starting the coffee, and she burns the milk too.

    Problem is we've just got a new manager and I don't want to sound whiny...and because I'm more experienced he sends me out to do orders/price checks etc. on the shop floor, so she ends up making coffee 40% of the time.

    That's 40% of my regulars getting a bad coffee every morning...I don't know what to do.
