The newest installation of good friends who are saving me from the hell of comprehensive exams. Thanks for this, Penata. You are the roommate of my heart and soul. That does not, however, mean I'll easily forgive you for making me confess to the world my shameful love affair with D-list celebrities and their flirtations with ballroom dance. I'm off to write another exam essay. One down, two to go. Go, Cheasty, go Cheasty, go Cheasty, GO!
Hi, everybody, this is Penata. As some of you may know, the Amazing Cheastypants and I are roommate-soulmates. We have the same routines, the same taste in food, the same jeans and shoe size for crying out loud. But even the best of relationships sometimes lose their spark. So, you may be wondering, what do Cheastypants and Penata do to keep the roommate romance alive? .....We watch Dancing With the Stars together! We started watching three seasons ago, when we heard that there was going to be a one-legged star on the show (who could resist?), and we've been hooked ever since. We have spent untold hours dissecting dances, costumes, and "showmances" (Apolo and Julianne? Derek and Shannon?). Last season we even voted. Yes, it's true, don't knock the democratic process.
I can't think of a better break from the grad school grind than 2 hours a week spent watching one of the silliest shows ever with Ms. Cheastypants.
Hi, everybody, Cheasty here again. Here are a couple of our favorite dances from our favorite dancing couples. Sit back, relax, and strap a napkin under your chin, cause this is gonna make you want to drool. :)
Sabrina and Mark, Cha-Cha. Ai, por dios. So this is what love at first sight looks like.
Apolo and Juliane, Rumba. Get a room!
Mel B and Maks, Paso Doble. Holy moly. I repeat. Holy. Moly.
