Somewhere ages and ages hence:
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

And that has made all the difference."
"The Road Not Taken," by Robert Frost|
"Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television"|
...perhaps one of the best quotes by Woody Allen that I know of.
So, of course I had to do it. I just couldn't help myself, so here it goes: Chanel's Review of the 2005 Academy Awards:

Hopefully there is someone out there who will find my 20 year-old "words of wisdom" enlightening. Perhaps someone out there will find at least a kernel of humor in my comedic attempts (besides me of course). Perhaps someone will comment?
But when all is said and done, I don't really care all that much. This blog was started as a way to vent my...
Do You Love Me Now That I Can Dance?
Well, as many of you may know, I can mash potato. I am also well known for doing the twist. But what I want to know is, do you like me like this? Tell me...tell me...tell me...(please)
O.k., so by now you've learned what a big dork I can be. But this dork also happens to be a world class ventriloquist; in 46 different languages at that, and of those languages, an additional 120 dialects. Bet ya' didn't know that!
In all seriousness though, most people know me as "the dancer"-- by major, by title, and by trade (though I have yet to receive any monetary benefits from it). I...
