Dancing with the Geeks

Against my better judgement, I watched, "Dancing with the Stars" last night. I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple of geeks out there, but the best one of all was Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak. He was adorable, suprisingly limber, and looked like a giant Ewok. Coming from me, that's a compliment. I liked him, as well as David Alan Grier. Who also did really well. My favorite part of watching DAG last night, was watching him not be able to just behave like a normal person. Much like Conan, everything he does comes across like he's shooting an on-location comedy segment. I loved that, and it gave me quite the chuckle.

I also found the dancing cowboy amusing, and got a surprisingly big kick out of seeing Melissa from, "The Bachelor" doing a really beautiful dance number in a hideously early 90's Cher-like, made of netting, sparkly top thing.

I can feel myself being dragged in by ABC's gravitational pull. I've always wondered what the big deal was about the show. I get the feeling though, that I'll watch, "Dancing with the Stars" the same way that I watch, "American Idol". Only for the cute or funny phases where people show up and do a bad job. Behold, Wozniak...the super Geek! Keep him in mind, fellow geeks, when you start to think that you are a loser...

I still don't get the point of the show, but am almost halfway tempted to check it out now. Lol
