Who wants to go dancing?

HOOORAY!! Once again, it's Tuesday. Like I always say, you can't get ANY better than Tuesday!! Today is also my 6 year anniversary for working for my library system - which is insanely cool. Go me!!
So, in honor of the fact that it's Tuesday, and my 6 year anniversary, I decided to go out dancing. Ok, not really...but reading books about dancing is JUST as fun!! Since the first two books are a little on the longer side (and I want to be sure to keep their attention!), I thought I would read a shorter audience participation story at the end...even though it has nothing to do with dancing.

Hilda Must be Dancing by Karma Wilson

Cha-cha Chimps by Julia Durango

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin

**previous dancing storytime** (Yes, I'm reading Hilda again - I LOVE Hilda!!)

And, as always, the other reason why Tuesday is so.freakin.cool: FMRNS!! WHOOOOOOT!!! My friend A and I had a couple chances to get together last week for Bonus Night, so I've got some updates! We watched Children of a Lesser God, a drama from 1986 with William Hurt and Marlee Matlin. We also watched Revenge of the Pink Panther, a comedy from 1978 with Peter Sellers and Herbert Lom. We also got into The Original Kings of Comedy, stand up with Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, and Bernie Mac.

We have some options for today, so I can't even begin to guess what we'll be watching. Here's just a couple from the list of what we have to choose from:

Strictly Ballroom, a dramedy from 1992 with Paul Mercurio and Tara Morice.
Monte Python's Life of Brian, a comedy from 1979 with Graham Chapman and John Cleese.
Hotel Rwanda, a drama from 1994 with Don Cheadle.

Children of a Lesser God - good flick!

D.L. Hughley rocks my face off!!

"Every Sperm is Sacred" is one of my favorite movie songs of all time - enjoy Life of Brian!

We just borrowed Cha-Cha Chimps from the library a few weeks ago and loved it.

I especially like the ending, when Mama gets a sitter and goes dancing by herself :)
