    I can't wait! Yay...dancing with the stars!

  1. Steven says:

    I'll be right there watching with you! (Okay, so I'll actually be three hours ahead...I'm talking metaphors here)

  1. jennifer says:

    Very difficult to concentrate on your post with all the mamboing and sexy hip swiveling going on.


    We have television now. Did a post about it today as a matter of fact. But I will have to do head to head combat with three kids to get the channel changed from Disney Channel to D w/ Stars.

    Of course The Boy would probably enjoy DWTS. That kiddo can MOVE! No sexy hip swivels though.

    I to work with a lady who dated Ted McGinley in her younger days...

    I looked at the the list and don't know who half the people are.


    I'm so out of touch.

  1. Isn't Cloris Leachman about eighty eleven years old?

  1. Good for you Travis. Have fun. You, Pam and Mr. Tucker have a great weekend too. :)

  1. three words trav
    Picture In Picture.

  1. Anndi says:

    Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy!

    SYTYCD Canada and DWTS!!!

    and um... ROTFL @ Charles! Eighty eleven LOL

  1. Bond says:

    Gosh I want Jeffrey gone so badly, but that would mean Edyta would be gone too...and well...SHE"S GOT LEGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  1. DrillerAA says:

    I'm an early Brooke Burke fan!
    Warren Sap and Cloris Leachman will be early departures.
    Note to Bond...Edyta's got abs too!!! She usually gets the award for least amount of material in a costume.
    Hmmm....no Jonathan Roberts this year. That's interesting.
    Oh well, let the games begin.

  1. Travis says:

    Merelyme: Me too! Don't forget to check in with me for recaps and encores too!

    Steven: There is a spot on our metaphorical couch for ya!

    Jennifer: Well that's the whole point of sexy hip swivels, isn't it? Bwahahahahaa!

    Lois: It's ok. You don't need to know who the celebs are to enjoy the show.

    Teach: YAY! I'm very curious about the new pros this time around too.

    Bee: I think you're right at that...she's 82.

    Charles: HA! You were close.

    Sandee: We will!

    Katherine: Stoopid PIP doesn't work. Let's see, my early favorite is Lacey Schwimmer because she is crossing over from So You Think You Can Dance and I think that's so cool.

    Ann: I know! But I can't watch the Canadian SYTYCD. Dangit!

    V: I'm hoping that Jeff Ross won't be a jerk. Oh...Kym is back to and she's also got the LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS!

    Drilleraa: I like your early predictions. I guess we must hope that Ross isn't a complete flop so we can keep Edyta's LEGS and ABS around for awhile. **drool**

  1. Akelamalu says:

    Strictly Come Dancing starts here tonight! Fortunately it doesn't clash with The X Factor or there'd be no contest!

  1. I want to see the mambo with the sexy hip swivels. Fork it over hotshot! Your audience awaits. We'll vote and everything!

  1. If Lance does not do well he is going to get SO MUCH CRAP.

  1. Travis says:

    Akelamalu: Excellent!

    Mimi: Hehehehehehe!

    Starr: He'll have to win to surpass Joey, but I expect him to do well especially with partner Lacey Schwimmer.

  1. OMG, is Lacey from So You Think You Can Dance?! I haven't watched this show, but I loved that one. :)

  1. Julie says:

    So I noticed that Mak's picture is bigger then everyone else!
