Nabila's New Gig

Nabila, my "belly dancing" alter-ego finally made it onto a poster...of sorts. It's a bit of a drive down to Modesto (about an hour), but it's a job, and the pay is FAR better than my last gig down there. These folks know how the game is played. I danced for the grand opening last Saturday night. It's a very family-oriented place, and I ended up staying there long past my bedtime (heck, the first set alone was past my bedtime!) dancing with some little girls and then trailing along like a feeble white person at the tail end of an impromptu "debke" or other kind of line-dance. I'll be back there next Friday (Oct 8), somebody else can do the Saturday gig this week, I have a cavalry class to help Gordon with and then we're off to El Morocco for good food and MORE "raqs al sharki" (that's "belly dance" to the rest of you)! Our 3rd wedding anniversary is tomorrow, so we're just going to celebrate a couple of days late since I'm teaching (belly dance, of course) tomorrow night. I'm a dancin' fool...
