I Wish I Was A Has-been Child Actor.

1)I LOVE her!!!!!
2)Go ALI GO!!!!



3) When people ask the question, what would you do if you didn't do the career you did do...I would have been a dancer. I love dancing, and it kind of surprises me that although I have taken many dance lessons...( ten years of hip hop workshops, jazz, interpetive) that I didn't consider it a job option when I was going to school. I guess being an artist seemed like a less risky economic venture. ha ha ha!
4) I totally have to eat my words during this season of Dancing With The Stars...and it kinda relates to the 80's.
5) I love Joey Fatone, I hated boy bands, trashed them back in the old days...but now, I love Joey Fatone. He is one of the best entertainers and great attitude and fun on the show.
6) I have no idea what boy band Joey Fatone was in, N'Sync?
7) Drew Lachey, also a former boy band member won two seasons ago...and I was crazy about him. Who know I would fall in love with boy band memebers?
8) I used to hate Billy Ray Cyrus. Yep, mullets and new country and achey breaky heart not my cup of tea. But my gosh...as a contestant and performer on Dancing With The Stars, he totally rocks. I love how kind he is, how funny and no matter how terrible a dancer he is, and he is...he keeps on putting on a show and being a good sport.
9) I've become a couguar when it comes to Apolo. Those two are awesome. I watched their PasoDoble a couple of times last week. And their Tango. They are so fast and use so much energy and imagination in their choreography, it's wonderful.
10) I love the judges. They piss me off sometimes, but they give me a lot of joy too. I am crazy about their nerdy humour...and did you know? Carrie Ann toured with MADONNA!!!
11) Beverly Hills 90210. Yep, I watched every single episode. And Melrose Place. But. My least favourite character was Ian Zeirling. Now, this dance program just seems to bring out the best in everyone. I love watching his segments of practice almost the most out of this seasons contestants. He is now one of my favourite folks. Plus, he had a cameo with Brian Austin Greene as themselves in some B-movie I saw last year. They were in a kidnap plot but I can't remember the name of the movie. They were both such campy good sports.
12) I am rooting for Laila. Last week her dad was in the audience and I started bawling. Stagg handed me the box of tissues. This program is like comfort food for me. I feel so happy and inspired and want to dance. If only I was a has-been child actor, or a former soap star or a 80's new country singer on a comeback. I would LOVE to compete on this show.
13) I was a Go-Go dancer for six months. It was one of the best gigs I ever had at RPM (now The Government) in Toronto. I auditioned a wild card and got a job. It paid 45 bucks for three hours and I was nervous but so happy as a pig in shit. Best money I ever earned and I had to spend it on the babysitter. I had no idea at the time I was making a beautiful memory. Gotta Dance!!!

You know what? I linked this video DAYS ago...and it never showed up. How strange to see it now, I completely forgot I ahd tried to post all kinds of Dancing With The Stars videos.

Maybe I'll make this my Thursday Thriteen....

Darla said...

Oh, how cool. I enjoyed watching her dance, but I've never seen the show. I don't even know if it's on here.

BTW, guess what showed up earlier this week and made me do happy dances? Thank-you, thank-you! It's wonderful!

Go-go dancing sounds like so much fun!

I've always wanted to be a writer, but if I had to choose something else, I guess I'd love to be Oprah. LOL!

Amy Ruttan said...

Very good list! I never thought about being a child actor.

Happy TT Candy. Thanks for dropping by mine!

I've been a fan from season 1.
Laila's my fave to win, though I love Joey's personality. He just seems to be having such a care-free good time.
As for Apolo... Grwwwrrrrrrr (that is the sound a cougar makes, right?)

Christine said...

I love the show when I see it but I'm not a regular watcher. I wish I could dance better myself. I've often wanted to take swing lessons. One of these days I will.

I wish they were showing Dancing With The Stars over here. You're loving it, aren't you?!

Tink said...

Ex-boyband isn't that bad. They CAN turn out very... yummy! Robbie Williams for example... *LOL*
My TT lists my favourite food / snacks.

How lucky to have been a Go Go dancer and Get Paid!!
What a great way to spend 3 hours.
I love it.

Nancy said...

I have been so busy I have not been able to get here.

I don't watch this. But I used to watch 90210 and Melrose.

I have renamed and moved my blog!

I'll be a cougar with you for Apolo :-)
