and a 5-6-7-8!


Those were my group's numbers as we waited in the line for Dancing With the Stars. We felt pretty good about being the second group in line and the "5-6-7-8" seemed to bode well for our chances of nabbing seats for a show about dancing. Arriving early also meant a wait in the shade, which was something to smile about during our late-breaking California heatwave.

Here we all are as the papparazzi snapped our pics (lol!) Notice the book my friends are reading - Elsie's 52 Challenges!


My mom and me

Of course, cameras and cell phones aren't allowed in the studio. Too bad, because it sure would have been fun to snap away in there. It was a very exciting show, as you might know if you've seen it or heard about it in the news. Marie Osmond was the first to perform and she fainted while judge Len Goodman was critiquing her performance. It was just wild! They cut to commercial and we all watched anxiously while medical personnel and staff tried to revive her. One of her brothers ran out on to the floor (Jimmy, I think). Very dramatic start to the show. It seemed like it threw the whole night into a weird sort of vibe. Thankfully she was okay.

The judges gave mixed scores several times last night. It was a really unpredictable evening. I'm really curious to see how the results come in tonight. I really think Mark Cuban needs to go home. His dance with Kim was really cute -- she looked adorable (really resembled Barbara Eden) and her dancing was great, of course. But of all the contestants Mark's performance was by far the weakest. My favorite performance of the night was by Mel and Max. I really love the Samba and I just loved theirs - it was so full of energy. Can't wait to see the results!

After the performance, the producers interview a lot of audience members. My mom and I were the last two to be interviewed. The odds of appearing on the results show are pretty slim considering how many folks they talk to, but there is the teeny, tiny chance we might make a "cameo" tonight.

You better watch just in case!


The line went on and on...
