Let’s do the mimi dance

If you could have something named after you, what would it be?

I woke up with a very sire throat after an odd night of lucid dreaming. It’s like I’ve been in some trance. And, on top of that all, I had the Safety Dance earworm egging me on all day.

We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t dance
And if they don’t dance
Well, they’re no friends of mine

As such, I started thinking about the Seinfeld episode where Elaine decides to dance at a party, and it is absolutely horrible dancing. I don’t like to make fun of people’s dancing because everyone does indeed express themselves differently. They hear and feel the beat differently. It’s personal and intimate.

With all that said, I wouldn’t mind having a freestyle dance, of sorts, naned after me. To me, that would be happiness personified. I’d like for the mimi dance to stand for joy, freedom, and escapism.

    Provided This ‘Ear Worm’ i Will Share Again…
    “Let’s Do ‘The Time Warp’ Again
    It’s astounding
    Time is fleeting
    Madness takes its toll
    But listen closely
    Not for very much longer
    I’ve got to keep control
    … I remember doing the Time Warp
    Drinking those moments when
    The blackness would hit me
    And the void would be calling
    … Let’s do the Time Warp again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    … It’s just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    Put your hands on your hips
    You bring your knees in tight
    … But it’s the pelvic thrust
    That really drives you insane
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    … It’s so dreamy
    Oh, fantasy free me
    So you can’t see me
    No, not at all
    … In another dimension
    With voyeuristic intention
    Well-secluded
    I see all
    … With a bit of a mind flip
    You’re into the time slip
    And nothing can ever be the same
    You’re spaced out on sensation
    Like you’re under sedation
    … Let’s do the Time Warp again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    … Well, I was walking down the street just a-having a think
    When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
    He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise
    He had a pickup truck and the devil’s eyes
    He stared at me and I felt a change
    Time meant nothing, never would again
    … Let’s do the Time Warp again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    … It’s just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    Put your hands on your hips
    You bring your knees in tight
    … But it’s the pelvic thrust
    That really drives you insane
    Let’s do the Time Warp again
    Let’s do the Time Warp again”
    Oh to Be Named A Dance Dear Miriam God
    Yes It’s Truly Naked Enough Whole Complete..:)

  2. I’ve had Safety Dance in my head too. Think it’s because I’ve been watching the basketball tournament and one of the endless TV commercials is using Men Without Hats to sell I don’t know what.
