Fine. You Guessed It! (grumble grumble)

It's time for the Comment of the Week (C.O.W.) and to announce the winner of my Girlfriends T's giveaway!

First, the C.O.W. goes to my Twitter Stalker (I kid!) Crazy Raincloud for her comment on this post- about my new class, the class I was hoping I would not need to reveal- because you were all going to forget about it and stop guessing. Silly me. I forgot about the determined Crazy Raincloud!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading all your guesses, which included:

- water polo
- photography
- knitting
- sewing
- pole dancing :-)
- botany
- the study of Sanskrit
- Lambada dance
- piano
- Cake decorating
- Flower arranging
- stick dressing (you gotta clue me in on this one)
- origami
- card-making
- leaded glass
- calligraphy
- creative writing
- singing
- juggling kittens
- crochet
- furniture restoration?
- clowning

Some close guesses, but it took the investigative work and persistence of Crazy Raincloud to come up with the correct answer in her comment:

"OOH OOOHHH Ballroom dancing????? um Belly dancing? something that ends with the word dancing?????

You must end this wait and speculation Carma, i will twitter you to death if you dont!!"

What class have I been taking: Belly Dancing!!!

The fun thing is that it is for women of ALL shapes and sizes; and ALL AGES, which is why I love this picture! The bigger question: Is it for people of ALL COORDINATION LEVELS and, even bigger question: Will it make me less like marrying a man???

Remember, I said it was something that you would find totally out of character for me. Now that I've revealed the answer, please expunge it from your memory and don't follow up further with me on how the class is going. Remember, I'm a "serial hobbyist." By the time you check, I'll probably be on to my next pursuit- which is exactly why I included the list of your guesses, so it will be convenient the next time I decide to explore a new hobby..

And now, the winner of my Girlfriends T's Giveaway:

Congrations Shel! I've already been in touch with her and she is thrilled to win them for her daughter and niece! Thanks to all who entered..

BTW, my new giveaway is really kinda cool if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet. The Light Poem (which is a light encased in meaningful words of your choice) and illuminated photo sculpture are my faves!

I have long considered belly dancing something I'd like to explore. And now I can't ask you how it's going. Harumph.

Mark said...

There goes my guess. Underwater Cheeseball eating lessons

The only thing missing from the photo???? The CHEESEBALLS!

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Wow, belly dancing - Fabulous! Would love to try that, Carma, and hope you enjoy it...

As for 'stick-dressing' - Making walking sticks/canes and their 'heads'... Simples!

Yankee Girl said...

I went through that hobby as well. It was fun while it lasted but I lost interest. I think I have the attention span of an ant!

Bethanne said...

Hi Carma, thanks for visiting my blog! : )

Enjoy the belly dancing!

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...

I think you are hysterical..there no filter on that mouth thing of yours...

You should have seen all the pictures of the big giant peach water tower. My husband just shook his head.

Thank you for thanking me about visiting your blog. lol.

Belly is nice to see some real women in that photo..although I am still to self conscience to do it!


nikkicrumpet said...

You are a foolish woman if you think you get off that easy....we expect a vlog sometime in the near future. One of you at class! You know you'll get a million hits!

Lucy said...

Belly Dancing! HOW COOL!!!

Yaya said...

That sounds so fun!

Crazy Raincloud said...

WOOOHOOOO!!!! made my morning! bwahahahahah sounds like fun Carma!!

carma said...

If I wind up sticking with it more than a month (which will be record for me) - I'll send you an email and let you know how it's going :D or whether it is not going ;-)

Oh the sogginess of it all!!

Woman of No Importance-
Just learned something new! Not sure that I would be all that suited for stick dressing, but the way I go through hobbies, I may get to try it at some point!

Yankee Girl-
We have lots of similar traits, although my attention span is probably more like that of a flea- or an amoeba...


I was really intimidated at first, but as long as I stay in the back of the room- where my spastic-ness isn't amplified by the wall to ceiling mirror- yikes!! I am a little less self-conscious.
p.s. you can never have too many photos of the peach water tower!!

LOL - not sure that it will be a viral hit, when you consider I really AM that bad. I'm not faking it. But should I get up my guts and have a camcorder handy- who knows what might transpire. The wheels are spinning...

It is kinda cool, but NOT when you see me doing it ;-)

It is rather liberating- not sure that I'd call it "fun" yet since I am still too focused on not looking like a complete fool :D

Crazy Raincloud-
Congrats on being awarded the C.O.W.!!

Don't you actually have to have a belly to do belly dancing? I submit that you are too slim.

Instead of those fringy things belly dancers wear on their headscarves, you can string Cheese Balls!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Oh how FUN! I agree with Nikki - I think a vlog post is in order! :)

carma said...

Blue State-
And I counter-submit that due to our new Ice Cream Maker (impulse buy)- I now have a belly :D

You guys and the vlogs! It is a rather serious bunch at my class so I may need to give it some time. I'll be very easy to spot in the video- believe me!

Tina said...

I've always wanted to try belly dancing, so I must ask. How is the class going?
