  2. It appears I have a blog

    So... never actually meant to start a blog here. Somehow my post on a thread turned into a blog post. But as long as I have it... seems like this would be a great place to geek out over Middle Eastern music!

    by , 09-09-2011 at 07:17 AM
    I've had hooks on my costume pop open on stage twice. (You'd think I would have learned the first time.) The story below is not about a wardrobe malfunction, but about a different kind of wardrobe emergency I had this summer dancing in Bodrum, Turkey.

    After acquiring not one, two, or even three, but FOUR brand-new costumes in one week, I was excited to the point of being overwhelmed. Which costume should get the spotlight first? I wondered.
