Poledacious

Monday, May 26, 2008

It's not every day you have a legit reason to dress up (or down, depends) and be diva style glamorous. Take that and piece it with a pole dancing competition--yes, that's right. On stage, scantily clad in front of a massive audience of unknowns and a shiny pole.
Especially in Malaysia, where we're still developing and pole is still somewhat parked in the taboo region of almighty taboos right next to all connotations of sexual deviancy.

Pole dancing is hard. I will be the first to say that I do not have the muscles in my arms nor do I have them in my abs to be able to do it correctly :p

And no, I didn't win the competition. Seriously, with only three classes under my belt I count myself lucky I didn't trip, fall and bonk into my partner. It takes a lot of nerve to get up there, strut your stuff and pretend you'll never have to see anyone in the audience (save for your friends) ever again... hopefully.

To everyone who's been bugging me for pictures: it's on Misty's camera! :p

The blister effect

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

"Oh wow, what happened to your hand?"

"I punched someone's face in."

"... horse shit."

Sporting popped pole blisters hidden under a few layers of gauze can be amazingly fun to explain ;p

Your bastard personality twin

Friday, May 02, 2008

For the people who don't have an actual twin by birth... have you ever met someone (heck, doesn't even have to be of the same gender) that you could've passed off as your personality twin?

I think I sort of did... well, run into one anyway.

Which just means all the hilarity, bullshit excuses, crude puns, chaos, pissy-ness, dodging and exit strategy mimics that of my own. I will admit some of the dodging I do can get downright tasteless but in my defense, I am a woman and would rather dodge early than end up in situations where I have to shove a stiletto into someone's eyeball and ruin my shoes in the process.

Like myself, my personality twin fakes it well (no pun intended for those who think they caught on ;p YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) but goddamn for shame, grow some balls.

Pulling a stunt like that gives a whole new meaning to dickweed assholery. Grow up man.
