- You might find that the furniture makes some of your moves awkward... it works best to move everything out of the way... I forgot this.

The glam option is way more fun.
Maybe I'll get some real synchronized swimmer-like sparkly hair doo-dads for MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW....
Maybe I should say that one a little louder...and while we're on the subject... I am hoping to wake up tomorrow and see three digits of 'likers' on my Facebook page in honor of my birthday. Still need 14 more. Have you clicked yet?
