It's not line dancing -- it's lion dancing. Chinese New Year's celebrations often include folk dancing featuring two or more performers outfitted in a lion's costume. This is more than a colorful tradition, as the lion is the mascot of most Kung Fu schools. Great pride is taken in the choreography and execution of the performance, which represents either Northern or Southern styles of Kung Fu. In addition to mimicking the lion's mannerisms, the performers, who are usually martial artists, demonstrate a variety of combative techniques, including low stances, kicks and evasive tactics like rolling and tumbling. Look out Disney world! --Cezar Borkowski and Marion Manzo, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Martial Arts
Think I'm going to have to punt on SJ for tomorrow; I'm tired, and my brain is elsewhere. I'll put up the pic Vince gave me at MFF tomorrow instead. I was going to use it as the Saturday Grab Bag, but it'll do the job as standing in for content tomorrow instead. :) Thanks, Vince! Have I mentioned lately how awesome you are?
There are a lot of factors that are all coming together to make me so pooped right now, and I'm not going to bother to go into them here. Suffice to say, this just happens to me periodically, and in a few days I should be fine.
I'm a tad annoyed, because this means that the current SJ storyline is going to have to go on even longer, and frankly I wish it were over already. But we gotta do what we gotta do. And what I gotta do right now, is get some rest.
