Turkey Lurkey Time” as heard on A Broadway Christmas

music Burt Bacharach (though only kinda) lyric Hal David

performance Debbie Shapiro Gravitte

A bizarre, disorienting, and unexpected arrangement.  What is this even?

Thanksgiving!

(ps: expect posts from basically this whole album come December)

OMG. Huge thank you to me2ism for having this on Tumblr. My mom had this CD and played it relentlessly when I was in middle and high school, and I just neeeeeded to hear this song RIGHT NOW—this particularly goofy version. It’s a hard one to find. :) 

The last sentence of Carla’s post just made my day.

Carla, I hope you’re enjoying your hoop journey! It’s a lot of work but it’s fun. Love the photo you posted too. Books and hoops are my favorite things.

I’ve been practicing my hoop dance for about 3 weeks now.  

My main goal with hoop dancing is just to burn calories, not to become a performance artist. But I still would like to learn basic moves like the lasso and the vortex. 

I created a notebook on the new SpringPad to help me keep up with the tutorials, and other hoopers who’s styles I like. Tilly Whirls is my favorite. 

I’ve had to do this with some of mine now too. Especially the twins. How ridiculous is it that I have four LED hoops and yet I want MORE!? I want one larger one (for tha slow jams), one that’s got some different colors than what I’ve got (aqua/green/purple or blue/green/white), and some minis…

I have enough now I dunno which is which, so I made it a little easier :) @moodhoops

I love this photo. I feel gorgeous in this photo. And I love that it looks quiet and a bit serene even, but I was hooping in front of an audience of about 5,000+ people with a blaring cover band.

Just found a photo of myself on F*ck Yeah Hooping. I think I posted this either on my Tilly Whirls website or on HoopCity. The photo on the left is the month I started hooping (Feb. 2011). The one on the right is six months later (Aug. 2011), after losing 25 pounds. I didn’t practice as much in the winter months so my weight loss is still at 25 pounds. But I imagine that might change now that the weather’s getting warmer again.
