Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Too Much Caffeine and Not Enough Shame

(Charlotte in PA triple-dog-dared me. That is all.)

Welcome to Cat's Snaking Tutorial:

If you don't want to come around anymore, I would totally understand.

Yup, you are a geek. All this video needs is a light saber and some special effects.

p.s. I do that same stuff with my kids - did your kids tell you that you should sign up for Nickelodeon's Funniest Mom in America contest? Cuz you totally should!

Blogger not-so-normal mom commented:

Yeah! Snaking!!! Snaking was responsible for my popularity in seventh grade. I moved from San Diego to Washington State and taught the kids at my first school dance how to snake before it had made it up to Washington. Yeah! Thanks for bringing it back Cat! You look totally hot busting those moves!!! Next, could you do the cabbage patch? Not because I don't know how to do it, but because I think it would make a great tutorial! :-)

You have balls of steel, woman. Balls of steel. I totally had it wrong. I thought the snaking was with both hands up in the air, out to the side, and then a little ripple action.

That giggle behind the camera? That's love, baby.

Okay, so, what William said?

Yeah, that. Me too.

Oh, and what kalki said.

And nessa, too.

P.S. Oh MY. My word verification is (I am SO not kidding) retar. I am absolutely certain that is NOT a commentary on your snakin' prowess.

3) You rock, sister! That was some funny stuff. Not to mention impressive. You've got mad skillz!

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Cat- This explains so much to me. I recently recovered from my illness to find Charlotte wriggling around in front of a mirror with bad 90's music blaring from the stereo. I get it now. Nice moves-- or as I would say in seventh grade- smooth move Ex-Lax.

What Kalki said, and the coolest mom ever!

Do your kids have any idea of what a great mom they have? I'm sure they do, you live with them!

This post actually shows me what my oldest (Brennen) means when he says I lost my sense of humor since starting school. I need to get that back- thanks for the insperation!

Blogger Cat commented:

You know, the irony of the song choice is probably my favorite part, even though it was a tad too fast for genuine Snaking. Well, that and the Snaking camera man (hence the shaky shot!) and the giggling daughter (who was-- yes-- also snaking, off-camera).

They have yet to master the Axl Rose. Pity...

Dude. These kids are SO DOOMED.

I shouldn't, in my current fragilay condition, have watched this today. I have saved the link, though, and will bust this baby out when I'm ready to induce.

Cat, I kid you not, Elli is "Axel Rose'n" right now. (As best as a two year old can.) It's to twinkle twinkle little star mind you. She watched your tutorial a couple times yesterday and it must have stuck!

Frig. You are REALLY good at the Axl Rose.

That was fun. Pure and simple. I watched it three times.

You are indeed, the cat's pajamas. Wait, you're already Cat, so maybe some other superlative, but definitely superlative. You are a better Axl Rose than Axl Rose. I say we need Cat's Dance Video of the Week. :)

Hi Cat.

That snaking tutorial is just so cool. Love absolutely everything about it: The music, The Offspring, Pretty Fly, Axl Rose, the dancing, the snaking... YOU...

Excellent piece. Hope you'll teach us more dance moves.
