immortalized in wax

Lisa Niemi with her late husband, Patrick Swayze
at Madame Tussaud's wax museum, Hollywood,
I must have watched dirty dancing 500,000 times. I can sing you every song, repeat every word (although I try not to do that because people tend to not wanna watch movies with you if you do that kinda thing) lol and dance out all the dances, not as well as they can but hey I still try! I wanted to be in love like Johnny and baby and wanted to find a resort like that somewhere, ohh the stairs... why don't all resorts have those stairs so we can all live out our dirty dancing moves! I wanted to end all days with a bunch of people walking towards a stage doing the same dance! I love when a group of people are doing the same choreography! There is something so powerful about that! Thank god for So you think you can dance :0) lol

Ohhh and how I would love to do a beautiful lift!! My step brother and I would try to mimic this and always fail, along with my friends, cousins and well just about anyone I could talk into trying it! lol. For the record it is both safer and easier if your in water! Probably why Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey did some work in the water. That and it was incredibly sexy with their wet clothes...well it's true! lol Anyway I loved loved and still do love this movie. Its so sad that Patrick Swayze was taken so early, he had such an amazing spirit and fought until the end. I'm glad he is being immortalized in wax and in this role. It almost brought tears to my eyes to see him standing on that log with his beautiful widow,  Lisa Niemi, in front of him. there are constant reminders to take life by the horns and LIVE! Lets all do our best to make each day a happy worthwhile day and make sure the ones you love, Know they are loved!
As for the remake of this movie....I don't know how I feel about that. I will watch it but it is going to be a hard one to redo with die hard fans like me to please. Although I do appreciate any movie with good music, good story and good dancing. So we'll see. Footloose was good remade but footloose isn't Dirty Dancing in my book :0)

Keeping my dreams to do a perfect lift alive!!!
Love you all,
