heaven, i'm in heaven

To celebrate my mad tapping skillz, I splashed out this afternoon and bought a fabulous Fred and Ginger box set, featuring four '30s classics. I've just watched Top Hat, which I loved as a kid but haven't seen for about 20 years. And oooooh, it was fabulous. The music is, of course, brilliant, and the dancing is just so amazing that it actually made me laugh out loud with delight, particularly 'Isn't It A Lovely Day?'. And tomorrow I'm going to a wedding, so I'll actually have a chance to wear a floaty(ish) '40s dress (just ten years late) and swan around a dance floor. Sadly, although my silvery high-heeled sandals are technically dancing shoes, there will probably be no tapping. Unless, of course, I get really, really drunk.

I double-dog-dare you to tap your way through the ENtire dance portion of the reception. On tables, if need be.

I think you should wear your tap shoes to the wedding.

Or you could at least take them along to do a little demonstration later. Do you have a bag big enough for them to fit in? Just tuck them away at the bottom and no one needs to know until you're three sheets to the wind and suddenly dancing on tables.

Wouldn't it be amazing to just...jump into 'Top Hat' ? I know it's a highly Hollywood-ized version of life, but who wants to live now when it used to be like that ?!

I love all the impossibly extravagant hotel lobbies and suites in those movies. My favorite number--I can't remember which movie it's in--is of Fred Astaire dancing around his hotel room as he puts on his tie. Maybe it's Gay Divorcee?
