Julia Report 15 Sep 2012 08:17

Mowtown, I'm ready, I'm ready.
Will be flexing my muscles whilst gardening this morning.
My OH is sticking the last of the sequins on me frock, and me silver shoes are having an extra layer of silver spray as I type.
I love Brucies jokes. I am old enough to appreciate them. I can practically remember him when he was a jobbing comedian at the London Palladium.
They didn't have frocks like that when I was in my dancing days. Well, bits of gauze covering your necessary bits. They would have to be big bits for me, these days, however.
So long as I see my 'Little Italian' doing the Argentinian Tango this series, I will be in seventh heaven. Oh the Sanatogen. Better get another crate in
Roll on 6.30. I am excited already.
Off to limber-up. Hope the A & E are on standby in case I overdo it.

Slow,slow, quick, quick, slow, for now

Julia in Sylvesterland.

I wonder how long we will have to wait to see the 2012 series :-S...

Love the show, I am sure I could be as good as these celebs given half a chance :-D

Susan ;-)

I think Denise will be great, she was in Chicago dont forget!

I wonder if Zoe Ball has been giving Daddy a few pointers? She was fab a few years ago.

I am practising my shimmy shake, just in case it comes in useful.

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

MG you know my qualifications so will be judging with
the best of them... :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D



MotownGal Report 15 Sep 2012 11:33

Ooooh Emma, I had better make sure everything shakes at the same time then!

I dont want my bum to be behind me boooosum a couple of seconds!

Makes note to wear me Spanx!

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D


GlitterBaby Report 15 Sep 2012 11:41

Wonder when some one will make a comment about this thread being another one on this subject. There was a second thread where one member had a go at the poster as there was already a thread on SCD which resulted in that very unhappy member deleting.

BUT I do not mind as the more the merrier.

Yipee can not wait to find out which pro dancers are back.

Bad boy Bren is brilliant so hope he is back for this series.. Rumours of who Anto is paired with will that be true.

I think that Darcy will do a routine with Ian Waite.


MotownGal Report 15 Sep 2012 11:53

Is there another one?

I went all down the list this morning, and could not see another....................however if someone objects then of course I will delete.

No problem on my part that is for sure.


GlitterBaby Report 15 Sep 2012 12:07

Please do not delete this one.

No idea why the one member had a go at the poster.

Does it really matter how many mention this superb programme.

At least something worth watching on a Saturday night.


Julia Report 15 Sep 2012 12:26

I was the original poster. The post was something like "I've seen a Trailer.
Some one posted another, listing the participants. No sweet from me, thats okey.
Then a third person opened another thread with the list of participants. But this was after she had posted on my thread. Someone else posted on it telling her of the existing thread. Didn't like this being pointed out to her.
Didn't bother me, but when she cited it, incorrectly on another thread about something else, and I pointed this out to her, then she took the hump.
I am not bothered that I have already a thread about this, in fact, I was the first to post on this, this morning.

Thankyou Julia.

I didnt realise that you had done a thread, I looked at the first three pages, and saw nothing, so banged it on

I think you and I have corresponded many times, so we are old friends.

I dont think A & E will be bothered by you dear, I know you are a lovely dancer!

:-) :-) :-) :-)


Julia Report 15 Sep 2012 14:17

Mowtown, we have indeed corresponded before.

I have no problem at all, about you putting up this post.

I would be very "miffed" if you did delete this thread.

Looking forward to 6.30 tonight

Take Care

my version of the first few notes of "the Stripper"


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 15 Sep 2012 17:10

Will be watching. Looking forward to all of it. Most especially to the actual competion.

Havn't got a favourite yet, will wait ti see them all dance first.

But have an interest in Louis Smith, as have seen him in Birmingham in European Gymnastics, and my younger grandsons both do gymnastics.

And wriggles into dress................

Yep, I'm ready..................bring it on.

Not long to wait now!!!!!!

MotownGal Report 15 Sep 2012 19:38

I must say.................I danced very well................even though I say it myself!

I thought the show tonight was very good.

The pairings were excellent.

Poor old Anton and Vincent usually get lumbered with the non dancers, but I think they have done better this year.

Couple of the celebs I am not keen on, but early days.

Yep, roll on next week.

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


George Report 15 Sep 2012 19:54

I am so excited that this dancing show is on again, what with the X factor and all the soaps that are on, having strictly come dancing back on the television gives me the incentive to go down the pub. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
