Today is National Sleepy Head Day in Finland. Traditionally on this day, the last person in the house (also dubbed as the 'laziest') to wake up is woken up using water, either by being thrown into a lake or the sea, or by having water thrown on them. I'm really glad I'm not Finnish today.

It was a busy weekend! Saturday my dance troupe performed at the Pride Charlotte Festival. In the past we've walked around after our performance to see other shows and visit the booths and such, but this year we were dealing with an afternoon high of 95 degrees. We all got a little heat-sick, so as soon as the show was finished, we skedaddled for our cars and the blessing of air conditioning. Sunday was our annual Belly Oasis show. It was spectacular! Everyone put on a remarkable performance, and even the first-timers had an extra level of sparkle. I came off the stage feeling completely energized and happy with my own performance. Beledi Beat and Magic Hips (and their husbands, partners and friends) went out to dinner at Buca di Beppo's after.

Today I'm getting a slow start, but at least I'm out of bed before my son. *contemplates running a large cup of water to throw on him*
