Amused Muse Belly Dancing at the Northeast Farmer's Market

Saturday (today) between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (Sorry, that's as much as I can pin it down.)

In the parking lot of St. Boniface's Church.

Wearing cotton (but black) and metal. ;-) I have decided.

Shimmying my little heart out to songs by Warda, Amr Diab, and Hakim.

Haha. Shame I'm gonna miss it, but I've got an appointment with some nice skeptifolk in NYC.

Well, I've been thinking that I could bring some music and a 'stume to the AAI Conference this September - I want to stretch out and practice anyway, maybe in the party room early in the morning - and who knows? Maybe give a little recital.

-dess. If you're going to worship Kristine, at least use the proper gender specific noun.

But I'm glad you remembered to capitalize Her title. Good job.

Now remember all the trouble that Padian got into when Dembski accused him of calling intelligent design advocates "Asians"? Naughty, Legion.

Hi everyone! I made $$$ today! Plus, a man bought me flowers, and one of the venders gave me a watermelon to take home!

Oh dear! Now I have The Replacements' 'On The Bus' going through my head.

Hey, it is the right town for that.

Quite a sight to see a gypsy woman riding a bike with a small stereo and a watermelon strapped to the rack!

And the music plays round my head.

Now it is 'Gypsy Woman' by The Impressions.

Well, there is "Medieval Womam" by ELO.

Don't eat the watermelon at one sitting, unless it is the size of one I raised several years ago. It was somewhere between the dimensions of a large orange and those of a small grapefruit.

Heh. It's a Philips mini hi-fi system with detachable speakers! The organizers were really impressed that I showed up with everything that I needed without a car. Plus, I wore the top half of my costume home as I pedaled.

And what a sight you must have been!

You said it. But I have a bike trailer that attaches to the back - today, as I was riding home I had a brainstorm that all I need is to build a frame to erect on it, then cover the frame with paisley curtains - portable harem! *Wink*

"Oh, Octopussy. Octopussy." (The "belly dancing" in that flick is so bogus!)

John carved into it right away. I actually don't like watermelon, but I tried some. It was good.

Kristine, why did you delete my reaction to the Rev.'s statement? When I said move away from the keyboard, that was the joke. Jeff Lynne, the leader of ELO was in a band called The Move.

Janine, I didn't delete your comment or any comments last night. I'm not deleting at this point. And I just got onto the internet now after going to bed at 2 a.m.

I'm looking through my e-mail (all my comments also pop up in my e-mail) and I don't even see it having arrived. Are you sure it went through?

Dang it. It sounds like I would have laughed at it. But I didn't delete it - really!

I just checked my Recently Deleted E-mail folder and it's not in there either (though the e-mail copy being in there wouldn't prevent the comment from appearing).

I think maybe the comment just didn't get published, Janine. Sometimes I look at the preview and think I've published the comment. Do you think that's what could have happened?

Kristine, I am sorry I asked about that. I should have known better, that action does not fit into how you have treated me since I started showing up here.

I often have to keep reenter my states. I can tell that it has not gone through by the contents of my the comment box. The box was enpty so I assumed it went through.

This is what I said. Ouch! Both the song and the pun are painful. Move away from the keyboard, Rev. Barking Nonsequitor. Move away.

So you got there on your bike? I can understand moving a lot of stuff on your bike. For almost ten years, I was a bike messenger in Chicago. Did I ever get loaded down sometimes. Even with my messenger bag, a small stereo system and a watermelon is a nise trick. I am impressed. I hope someone captured that image.


This is my second attempt.

Nope, my boyfriend had a shoot elsewhere, so no photography. :-(
