|Sore... but in a good way.

As ferrousoxide and her friend alisgray were over, I went to Dominion.
'twas pretty cool - I haven't danced like that (with much arm flailing and pretentiousness) in ages. Also got to meet people I've not met in ages. Basically, I haven't been to Dominion all that regularly since my most recent attempt at college. One of the reasons was, while I could afford to show my face an all that... but not drink much, I got all kinds of bitching from certain people along the lines of "Well, we're on much less than that a week, and we still make it." (for the benefit of bloodedrose, if you're guessing at the identity, think of the biggest dot we both know). In the end, I just drifted away a lot.
It's kinda weird, when I was living in England, and came back to Dublin for holidays, I never felt I was home until I got to Dominion. There's still that little bit of feeling there, but not so much these days. I guess that's what 4 years of doing just enough to keep touch with the place does.
Anyway, like I said, not danced like that in ages... and the pain kinda feels good. It's familiar. It's actually surprising how little hurts - my legs just hurt a bit. My waist hurt... but after that, it's ok. I don't know if it's down to exercise or not.
As an aside, I remember the first Burlesque Night held by SciFi Soc in UCD: the weekend before, I'd done a very intensive Tai Chi course. For a few weeks after, I was never that sore, because my posture had improved massively. So a few days after the course, I was doing my pretentious flaily dancing, even moreso than usual, and I felt absolutely fine the next day. So I don't know if it's the fact that I do poi these days, or what, but I hurt less today.
