where you can find me this weekend.

dear audrey-

i realize that

1. you are in LONDON and all, and
2. even if you leave your house RIGHT NOW, your seventeen katrillion-hour flight would probably not make it in time, but let the record show that i am officially challenging your ass to a muthafuckin DANCE-OFF. not just any dance-off, mind you... this is one of the fanciest dance-offs that you could ever have the honor of participating in (and by participating, i mean WINNING). this dance-off is the 20th Annual Texas Championship Pow Wow. Wow. Is. Right.

from their website:

The dance contests will take place from 12:00 noon - 5:00 p.m., with Grand Entry at 12:00 noon, on Saturday and Sunday. The arts & crafts sale will be open from 9:00 a.m. to sundown each day. The teepee exhibit will be open only during daylight hours - dawn to dusk - both days.

The drums will beat for the dancers in the following categories: tiny tots, little boys, little girls, junior boys, junior girls, golden age men & ladies, ladies cloth, buckskin, fancy shawl, jingle dress, men's straight, traditional, grass and fancy. Visitors will see dancers in full traditional dress at all dance sessions over the two days.

COME ON. just look at all the dance categories!! buckskin? fancy shawl? jingle dress. effing JINGLE DRESS. aaaaaaaaaaaaand they have a fancy dancing category. fancy dancing. dear sweet baby jesus in your hay manger cradle, please don't let my head explode right now. the only problem we will have is deciding where to put all those trophies.

so get your wampum together, go pick up your native american gladiator outfit from the cleaners:and get your buns over here. brandee and i will meet you at the cy-fair la quinta. we'll bring firewater and maybe some jingle bells and hot glue. i think you could take that jingle dress category by storm, but we'll need some last-minute modifications.

love, just so's you and i are crystal clear on this, we go head-to-head in the 'fancy shawl' category. may the best fancy shawl dancer win.

You're on, Pocahontas. I just finished glueing some extra sequins to my giant hula hoop dream catcher, which should really come in handy during the Foreigner 'Hot Blooded' number that I've been working on. It's more of an interpretive dance, native american style.
