I have had a bad fucking night.

In my 5:30 Zumba class, I had a member have a terrible accident. She was in the back row, fell out, and dislocated her knee-cap. It wasn't a minor dislocation either. The ambulance came, I held the ice on her and kept her immobilized, her friend called her mom and took the kids out of the nursery, one of the other members in the class was a trauma nurse and she did that thing where spoke calmly and soothingly. The Y director was in the room, another Y employee stood at the door keeping the rubber-neckers out.

She said she'd had 3 children and never felt pain like that before. I'm afraid it's going to require surgery.

They're right about your first aid training, it really does kick in.

So then I come home, fix myself a great big gin and tonic and some chips and salsa and sit down to this

Secret Six has been canceled in the new DC reboot

fuck you DC comics.

Fuck you with Scandal's gauntlets.

Deadshot's gun.

Jeannette's banshee scream.

Ragdolls ... er ragdollishness

May Bane never dose again and beat you about the head and neck.

and lastly, may my beloved Catman render you from to end to end, and piss in your new re-booted sandbox.

I am done.

here is an excellent Secret Six primer

Y'all -- I had somewhere between 44 and 47 people in my Zumba class last night. We were jam packed and everyone was smiling and grooving and most importantly - sweating. According to one of my ladies, it was the best class I'd ever taught.


Here's the Play-list (in-order) if anyone wants any of the songs let me know and I'll upload them over the weekend:

I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
La Fiesta - Will Smith
Boom Boom Mama - Da Family
Suavemente - no idea
Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Brian Setzer Orchestra
Beat It - Michael Jackson
Llego El Sabor - Papi Sanchez
Ya No Toy Pa' Eso - Ilegales
Conga - Gloria Estefan
Kiss Kiss - official Zumba song
La Bomba - Diaz Brothers Remix
Release Me - Robert Miles

I really need to get more Papi Sanchez and Daddy Yankee music in my collection, the ladies LOVE IT. Da Family too if BBM is any indication of the rest of their music.

I have stayed up past my bedtime every single night this week so I could mainline Sons of Anarchy. I finished it last night and I'm all


And very sleepy and SORE [more about that below the cut]. How is it that there is no quality fic that I can find in this fandom? HOW???? I'm going to re-watch the series before season 2 starts Sept 8, and just wallow in the awesomeness of it. Like all nearly all shows on FX SOA is gritty and painful and real and cringe inducing and hand flappy and perfect. ::draws hearts::

I want Jax/Opie [or Jax and Opie I'm not picky] when they were growing up and after the finale. I want to see Gemma seducing people for the Club. I want backstory on Tara and Jax. Moments of the guys hanging around the shop working on their bikes. Five things fics of any sort. I want wallpapers of Jax's naked and oh so lickable body, you know the scene, that needs to be my new wallpaper.

I want the music. I want a freaking sticker for my laptop!

I'm too sleepy to fully express my love.

I lead a bootcamp last night )

All the rain made me want to cook. Of course, by the time I served the meal, the rain was gone and it was no longer 60 degrees but 80.

French *Red* Onion Soup )

And Tom just picked greens from the garden -- curly mustard, kale, and turnip greens. The beets I bought still had their greens so I trimmed off the end and threw them in the pot too.

Greens that aren't cooked to death, from some random blog )

Spencer made a cake of cornbread and some tuna salad [I have no idea why he made tuna salad, but he did. I didn't eat any because I don't like tuna or the concept of "salad"]. It was a very lovey meal, even if it was 20 degrees too hot for it by the time it was ready.

I made the soup on Saturday when it was still rainy and wet, it was very satisfying. I stashed some away in the freezer for the next cold snap.

I just took a good look at my Y October schedule. In addition to 4 step classes and 2 Pilates classes I'm teaching *9* spin classes. One of which is a 90 minute challenge ride.

Dude. I need to get working on some new playlists.

Finally! The *perfect* Chuck icon. (icon by [livejournal.com profile] ifoundwonder)

I have experienced "meh" and "so?" "WTFness" over the following episodes:

BSG: Escape Velocity - it had its moments but overall I didn't enjoy it at all

GG: Desperately Seeking Serena - although next week looks to make up for this one

Bones: every single episode since they came back from hiatus. WTF is wrong with Bones?

Smallville: Sleeper - only the dance scene which was very reminiscent of "True Lies" was fit to watch

I have experienced "wow that didn't suck as much as usual" with

SPN: Ghostfacers

And the elusive "OH! MY! GOD! THAT WAS SO FUCKING AWESOME I COULD DIE \o/\o/\o/" goes to:

Friday Night Lights: deleted scenes season 2. So *that's* where all the awesome went last season. I should have known. Seriously, with the exception of That Which Shall Not Be Named every issue I had with last season was resolved in those few minutes.

Smallville: Descent


Leatherheads = meh

Forbidden Kingdom = fairy tale with martial arts, drunk Jackie Chan and monkey-king Jet Li. Much to like, not a lot to love.

Paris, je t'aime one of the best "films" I've ever seen.

I bought a laptop. \o/

Today is one of those days I may lose my bike in Spin class. I have running gear ready to go and am already pissed off about it.

It's Memaw's birthday. I guess I should stop not talking to her long enough to give her her present. I didn't buy her a card and I don't feel bad about it at all.

and ... that's everything.
