    VagueGripe:
    Ripping SYTYCD routines off of youtube and having your own teacher show them to your new partner dancebatim doesn't make you a "professional choreographer/instructor". It makes you a knockoff, and your complete beginner student who's now being pulled and contorted all over the place look like that one creepy Oracle chick from 300. How about dancing a clean routine you can actually dance instead? Crazy, I know.

    but but but... the complete beginner student often wants these crazy routines, being oblivious to how inept they look.

    These people have been dancing for like five years and should know better. Then again, they're the same people who think you can "buy the look" and "be the dancer". Meh, whatever. Knockoffs fool nobody.

    Stupid bikini-wax necessitating showcase routine with high kicks in a knee length skirt with petticoats, fishnets and dance pants. Grr....

    On a limited budget for christmas shopping this year, and I have no idea what to get my mom :/

    Something for sale. To the right people, it's worth enough money, and it'll make me enough that I can do the rest of Christmas pretty well.

    The one friend who always spies my stuff for sale sees it and does that wistful "Man, I really like that..." but they can't afford what I want for it.

    So now, I either take a hit on it and let them have it because friends, or I stick to "It's this price, and I've had a few lookers already" and feel kind of bad.

    I'll feel bad either way. I hate it when I'm in the position and I see something I can't afford at the time, so I try not to see my friends there either.

    I read this as Sick Dear Wife. nonplussed.

    Nonplussed? I'm hoping I've misinterpreted that.

    DW was feeling pretty puny Thanksgiving week, but she's better now. And the heat pump is defrosting again, after the addition of $450 worth of Freon. :rolleyes:

    Freon's what pumps crave.

    ok, it *was* sick Dear Wife. the juxtaposition of DW with the heat pump in the same sentence threw me off. have been reading too many kitchen magazines; assumed at first that you were referring to wife, but reference to heat pump made it sound like sick DW was sick dishwasher. and that's why I was nonplussed.

    glad she's feeling better. and your heat pump is working.

    Pretty sure my car needs new cv joints. I don't like the sound it's making.

    Perhaps it just needs a louder stereo . . . .

    Are the wheels making a clicking noise?

    It's making a rumbling sound when I turn, and sometimes when I go straight...like a whompwhompwhompwhomp and a little like grinding.

    Could just be your tires are out of round or wearing unevenly.
