No Bachelorette updates here, but if you are looking for Belly Dancing Updates, you've come to the right spot!!!
I know you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting for this week's report ;-)
I decided to broach the subject of the unfriendly beyootches as I drove to class with my classmate. And lo and behold I was NOT IMAGINING THINGS!! As soon as I mentioned getting the "once over" and snickers she knew right away who I was referring to: the Ice Princess and her cohort. She was also getting bad vibes and noticed them looking her over as well.
My friend started the class many months before I did, so she is one of the few "veterans" in the class. She was a little P.O.'d at the pushiness of the Ice Princess (who we now refer to as Ariel, because she has long red hair) to get to the front of the room. She tried to engage Ariel in conversation, complimenting her on something, but Ariel's response was barely a grunt.
I am just elated to confirm that I AM NOT BEING PARANOID! Because you know that paranoia is the destroyer :D
But back to Monday night's class: The instructor had us gathered 'round her laptop to view a video on proper makeup techniques, i.e. wear gobs and gobs. It was about a 10 minute video. A few of us asked questions at the end and we were still standing together as a group. Well, off goes Ariel - about 15 feet away to admire herself and primp her outfit in the mirror. Hello?????
The teacher glanced over with a quizzical look. Oh, and one of the makeup requirements is to wear a line from our lower lip to our chins - this indicates what "tribe" we belong to. (This really is a lot of fun- I've always wanted to belong to something akin to a "tribe") Anyway, Ariel says, in whiny voice, "Do we really have to do that?" The teacher was a little taken aback, but assured her that yes, we did.
Anyway, I'm not sure that the instructor has gotten the big picture yet. While she was demonstrating something I glanced over and noticed Ariel looking down her nose at the teacher with her usual air of superiority. Beyootch needs a reality check something fierce.
And by the way, her buddy wasn't there tonight, which meant she talked to absolutely no one. When we were gathered in groups at the beginning of the class exchanging pleasantries, she was off on her own, undoubtedly admiring herself. At the end of class she had her shoes on and was out the door without so much as a goodbye to anyone.
My friend said she has been hoping that Ariel would drop out, but I told her it was doubtful we would be so lucky. Once someone invests in a costume, I tend to think they plan on sticking around for a while.
Lucky us. One things for sure, she's never ever gonna be my "sister in dance!" I'll call her an "estranged sister who I despise in dance"
P.S. Why has "beyootch" not been added to spell checker yet???
