Falling for my muse again
I first fell in lust with Cam Gigandet in Twilight. I'm not one for sparkly vampires, so as the bad boy James, Cam was - in my humble opinion - perfect.
No one told me Cam is also in Burlesque. Now I'm head over heels in love.
Burlesque is a little like Coyote Ugly - in fact, the story lines are quite similar. Small town girl leaves behind dead-end job in search of fame and fortune in the big city, meets older mentor who dishes out a healthy dose of tough love, girl becomes a huge star and ends up with the witty, hot (er, damn hot) guy at the end. There's singing, and dancing, and fun dialogue.
Yeah, I loved it.
But then, I knew I would.
In addition to falling in love with Cam all over again, Burlesque made me miss dance. Not just the Naughty Hotties class, where some of Jessica's awesome moves were on the big screen, but everything about the way dancing makes me feel. Work has been busy, life is hectic and I can't remember the last class I attended at J'Adore Dance. I'm trying not to beat myself up over that.
Burlesque has that inspirational quality about it - muchly needed since I've been a little lax on the writing the past few weeks. Needless to say, Cam is a perfect muse avatar to kick me into gear. In case you doubt the selection, here's a couple more photos to sway you:
