Dancing With One Star in Particular

Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.
— Tom Krause

Ok, if Marlee Matlin can dance on TV in front of millions of people, surely I can sing karaoke in a bar in front of 30 drunk people, right? (Which would, hopefully, be a prelude to something more official and public.)

In all seriousness, I’ve never watched much of Dancing With the Stars, and I forgot to watch last night, even though I meant to, but I saw this video today, and it actually brought tears to my eyes. I was so proud of her.

And leaving aside the deafness issue, how hot does she look? She’s in her 40s and has 4 kids; I’m 31 and childless, and I wouldn’t look half that good in that dress. Good for her!

  1. She does look hot!

    I watched DWTS last season for Helio Castroneves (race car driver). I’m not sure I can bring myself to watch two seasons in a row.

  2. Sing your karaoke Melanie. You know you want to. You just need to http://www.ownthatshix.com.

    I watched that video and have to say, I found it inspiring. If I hadn’t known, I wouldn’t have known. But knowing is what makes it. It is gives it this greater meaning and dimension.

  3. I didn’t see it on TV either. But watched the clip with tears in my eyes as well. Then watched it without the sound to imagine what it would be like to dance without hearing the music. Made me realize how hard she worked for this. And YES you should sing!

Chime in!
