    Hi all, I'm the husband of a belly dancer and webmaster of a regional belly dance website in the UK. I've been a fan of Salome's site for years. I was active on this forum a couple of years ago but ... who has the time to spend of forums?

    me. I do it instead of watching telly,reading crap newspapers, cleaning the house, writing important reports for my work and anything else that I need distracting from.

    It is all research to me and very very important!

    anyone who says they are FAR TOO busy is talking a load of old cobblers...

    It is about how you
    choose
    to use your time.

    I'll consider my wrists slapped.

    I already don't watch telly, don't read crap newspapers (or even good ones) and don't clean the house until I am ordered to do so by the Health and Safety Executive.

    .... Darn it! this is exactly the "old cobblers" I meant ... now you've got me spending time responding on a forum when I'm supposed to be researching links for my belly dance website!

    see.. think very carefully, it can be quite addictive and time does not come into it.

    Hang around, grandad and you'll see that belly dance is so much more important than housework.... remember Quentin Crisp and his claim..dust doesn't get any thicker after 7 years.
    I'll let you into a secret: spray a bit of polish around just before him indoors is due home and he says..mmmm you've been busy!

    All hail St Quentin of Crisp.

    I am so glad it isn't just me.

    And it absolutely is research - I have learned so much here.

    Lizaj I AM Him indoors! SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED would rather dance ... I think we have some polish somewhere buried in a cupboard but if I used it she'd say "What's that funny smell? ... why have you been polishing? Have you had a girlfriend round while I was at dance class?"

    Mosaic Thank you. I must confess to being a bad boy, I took time out to eat.

    Caroline I have an article somewhere on my computer about belly dance addiction and I carry a health warning on my web site that reads:

    CAUTION!!


    • Belly dancing is normally good for your health but can be
    seriously addictive.

    • Participants have been known to have fun, make new friends,
    gain self confidence and move sinuously and gracefully
    around stages and dance floors in glamorous middle-eastern
    costumes.

    • Neither the very young nor pensioners are immune from the
    effects of this addiction.

    • Those in doubt should consult their doctor before embarking
    on any new programme of exercise.

    • Suitable for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores.

    • Classes may contain nuts.

    BTW Caroline, do you have a website I can link to as revenge? ... or don't you have time for that?

    Mark
