Dancing with the HomeTeached

In my defense, right off the bat, I want to assert the artificial fact that I am entirely positive if Laurie Bluedorn went toe to toe with me in a disco challenge then I would most certainly absolutely without-a-doubt probably win.  

My father’s mother’s maiden name was Funk, it’s in my blood, and that aint no lie.


But no.  Laurie doesn’t want to have a “Disco” Dance Off because she thinks she can beat me again in another “Virginia Reel” Dance Off.  As if the first one wasn’t enough.  And I’m not saying that just because I’m bitter or scared.  Ok, maybe I’m a little scared.  I mean, sure, Sir Harv and Lady Laurie might have really and truly won the first dance off, but since there was rampant cheating, voter fraud and thug-style politics behind the scenes, we’ll just never know for sure. 


And I still maintain the whole thing was rigged.  Furthermore, what you don’t see in this video is that minutes before the competition started somebody took a crowbar to my kneecap.  Now I ask you, is that fair?  Should we reward Knee-Cappers with illustrious dance titles?  I think not.  I demand justice, and if there must be injustice then I prefer it to be in my favor.

ok, I tried forever to get the video embedded into my blog post but I’m too dumb to figure it out… so if you want to see the first Bluedorn vs Igarashi dance off that happened two years ago, go HERE … the first video is shorter, but the second one down has better quality.


At any rate, I appeal to you, my faithful, justice-loving friends, to support Team Ig in the Second Bluedorn vs Igarashi Virginia Reel Smack Down Dance -Off.  ** I just realized if me and Laurie were to build a house out of ice and snow we could call it an Igbloo, ha ha snort **


There is still time to sign up for the dance, but you don’t have to be present to participate in the most important Dance Off election in our lifetime. 


Mail-in “votes” are most welcome.  And think carefully before you vote.  Can we really afford two more years of the same Bluedorn Dance Domination?  No.  I submit we need change.


Can you really “vote”?  Yes, you sure can.  And what is the real reason for it?

Any money support (in the form of ‘votes’ or otherwise) will go towards a medical fund for a very worthy and fine young fellow, which will help pay for surgeries, chemo treatments, and other medical expenses. 


Obviously, thru-out all the fun we’re having this is the real purpose here. : ) 

Checks, Money Orders, Cash may be sent directly to:


Greg Wallace (2379 North 800 East Road, Moweaqua, IL 62550


And how about getting your kids involved? What a perfect opportunity to show how the body of Christ – even though spread out geographically – is a family!  What a beautiful and easy way to showhow God can use ‘related strangers’ to bless, uphold, support and (literally) make a life preserving difference for a brother in Christ.


** many thanks to the brilliant Nobletin Production team for putting the video together!

    Would I get in trouble if I voted for Team Blue?

    …I would vote for you if you were to do the disco. I don’t think anyone can beat your disco dancing.

    Igbloo? That’s EXACTLY how Emmi sounds when she sneezes.

    Yes, Ryann. You will get in trouble if you vote for Team Blue. Lots of trouble.

    I was wondering why I saw you doing somersaults and twirlabouts through the kitchen window when I pulled into the driveway today.

    I’ll bet you forgot every step to the Virginia Reel (you haven’t danced it in almost 2 years, anyway). That’s ok, I won’t tell.

    This is a good tactic. Trying to show us how competitive you are and determined to win. That way, when you “throw the dance” for the sake of a good cause, it will seem more convincing. I mean I know you could TOTALLY wipe the dance floor with any body … but you are just humbly letting them win. How saintly of you.

    Plus you do know that for all of us “unknown” people the thought of the Ig’s and the Bluedorn’s dancing together is like watching Reality TV, right? This is Dancing with the Homeschool Stars. Very “red carpet”…

    Barbara, the thing I like about you is your willingness to openly declare my superiour dancing abilities without being wishy washy (like my daughter, Ryann). But make no mistake about it… We shant let anybody win. We have secret stealth dance moves and we will have no mercy on the Bluedorns this time. We’re practicing day and night.

    We’re gonna beat them so bad that *next* year they’re gonna want to scrap all the dancing and replace it with a “Quote the Great European Authors in Greek” Fête

    Float like a butterfly… sting like a bee

    sigh * wiping tears of mirth * You guys are killing me. “Dancing with the Homeschool Stars” too funny.
    Love the competitive spirit, Jen! 🙂

    Now here are some politics I could really get into! If I could be there, I would even carry a sign with your names on it. 🙂 Surely there is some kind of slogan you could come up with that would include “igbloo.”

    Oh, I might need some therapy or something now. All that Virginia Reel footage made me have bad flashbacks to junior high school PE classes. LOL
