jiggity jig.

my brother-in-law, kit, hipped me to one of the most recent "where the hell is matt?" videos.  i'm sure many of you have seen matt in action before, but as i watched this tonight, my heart started to feel things and i almost shed a tear.  i guess it made me realize that we silly humans have far more in common than we realize.  i think it's simple moments like these when The Man Upstairs looks downward at us all and smiles.



and i hope my husband's teammates don't see this next clip and give him a swirly or something equally harsh, but i thought it funny that matthew, while dressed for rugby, a sport of brute-like masculinity, starts channeling a light-hearted michael flatley.

i do love him and his legs in those socks. i do. xo.

What a surprising and crazy emotion I also felt when watching that. Seeing people all over the world smile and dance was great. Makes you think this crazy world we live in isn't so bad.

Matt I would have to say you might have lost some manhood with that dance. Laura couldn't stop laughing. When you get back to dallas we will both take one of those hip hop classes. Later CRACKA!
