No Mere Mortal Can Resist

I started practicing the Thriller dance steps today. They are kind of hard! My shoulder is sore right now. But it was seriously fun! There is a really good set of instructional videos here at Thrill the World.

I have been wanting to learn the steps since we started trick-or-treating with Toaster's niece. Someone in our neighborhood blasts Thriller and runs a fog machine, and I've longed to surprise them by dancing in their yard one year. Toast and I have done bad 30-second versions of the dance before, but next year I'm going to do it right.

Also, at Dragoncon this year they are going to try to set a World Record for number of people doing the dance. I don't know if they can do that, but it seems like it would be kind of fun to be in the middle of it. Or possibly the outer edges - and not beside the Stormtroopers.

S2K this is HYSTERICAL. She's doing this great thing where she's made up words for each of the steps; you recite them as you do the dance to help you remember them. (Roar-turn, roar-turn, booty bump booty bump swim step swim step and jump, etc.) And it's actually really hard! I'm throwing myself all around the room. But it is a LOT of fun.

If I didn't think I'd hurt myself 'd totally try to learn it right now!

When your back is better, we are so trying this together. Even if it's just in the yard. :)
