Nutcracker Disco!

A couple of months ago, WCK and I started playing "Bathroom Disco." Here's how it works:

1. Go into the windowless bathroom; turn out the light and close the door so it is pitch black inside.

2. Shine a flashlight through Great-Great-Grandma's metal potato ricer to create a disco-ball effect. (I bet a metal colander would work just as well)

3. Tune a radio to a station that plays silly '80s songs. We especially like "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey.

4. Dance, dance, dance!

To celebrate the holiday season, however, we have switched from Journey to The Nutcracker. I put the really upbeat Nutcracker song on repeat, and it plays forever. You know the one I'm talking about. It's the one that goes

Da DA dada dada dada da
Da DA dada dada dada da
Da ... da ... da ... da ... da .... da .... da .... da ...
Da DA dada dada dada da ...

You know. That one.

Is it sad that I know exactly which one you are talking about? LOL We might be playing bathroom disco at our house tomorrow if the weather gets really bad.

Go download "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses. 80's dancing AND Christmas. What, it gets any better than that?
