Summer Hummer 2012 Update #1

On our way to Summa Humma! At the gate here in the Air Tran terminal (merged with Southwest) so we get the hip line of rocking-chairs looking out onto the tarmac, wide leather armchairs, and banks of outlets everywhere. There are *three* women spotted so far buried in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” What is itContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #2

Our flight attendant was an adorable black woman with fashionably hip gold cuff bracelets, short matte-grey nails, Mary Janes, and the cutest pixie haircut with – hyperventilating – a shiny *metallic* gold streak in her hair from crown to forehead. Metallic! First time I’ve seen that. Must have this! I asked if she modeled andContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #3

Just finished Champions’ Strictly and WHAT FUN! Louis and Victor – the DJ dream-team, are, as Bill said on the mic, always trying to figure a new way to “bust these guys’ chops” (meaning find some new fun thing to do with their comp music.) So guess what they did tonight? Each couple got theContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #4

Showcase was tonight! Just before the Champion Strictly! Six great routines – it will be interesting to see how they are judged this time. Judges: Jessica, Steve Nereen, Anne Fleming, Heidi Mongeau, Donna Roesel, Kyle, and Maira Pineda as chief judge this weekend. 1. Stephen and Sabrina’s beautiful “Somewhere With You” – so many difficultContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #5

GB left the ballroom at 3 and says it was seriously rocking, GREAT energy. Victor texted at 6:15 am to say he was about to hand over DJing to Louis, 40 people still on the floor. Ha! Crazy great! I’m sure some of those cwazy people are competing at this very moment cause we haveContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #6

Pool party was SO FUN! Robert Royston! An amazement. He worked that mic for two solid hours – no stand-up comic could have done better. He’s hilarious, smart, witty, kind, inclusive, jumps around like a 12-year-old, has a potty mouth and knows when to use it (and when not), generous, silly, loves the community asContinue Reading

Summer Hummer 2012 Update #9

JJ finals about to start. Dancing was CRAZY fun last night! Me (high-maintenance OCD neat freak) and Genieboy (sloppy disorganized every-surface-covered-with-mounds of uncategorized stuff) rushing around the room here trying to take showers and not kill each other on our way back down to ballroom. Remember last year’s hurricane, and the power went out? AndContinue Reading
