Olympic gold medalist, Shawn Johnson, and her Dancing with the Stars partner, Derek Hough, showed that while breaking the rules might lose favor [read: points] with the judges, it'll bring EVERYONE IN THE SEEING WORLD TO THEIR FEET! OHMYWORD, I can't stop watching their spectacular, crowd-pleasing Quickstep from last Monday night, nor (apparently) can I stop BREAKING INTO ALL CAPS TO EXPRESS MY UNBRIDLED, UNASHAMED ENTHUSIASM!!!!
While living in Germany, we can watch TV in realtime with our amazing Slingbox**, but given the six-hour time difference, it's easier to watch later. Today was the first time I've had opportunity to see Monday's show, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'M COMPELLED TO BLOG ABOUT IT AND DEMAND THAT YOU WATCH IT, TOO!
Even if you've never watched DWTS, watch this.
Even if you (think you) HATE dancing, watch this.
Don't blink. It begins with a BANG and ends with colors flying; everything in between is nothin' but HAPPY FEET doin' a HAPPY DANCE.
If you aren't moved to standing ovation (at least in your heart), I'm not sure we can remain friends.
I'm not kidding.

** If you're living abroad and enjoy watching TV, a Slingbox
will enable you to watch your television from anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access. Once you return home, you can even use it stateside; I've always wanted a TV in my kitchen to listen to favorite shows while I cooked and a Slingbox plus my laptop makes that doable without another purchase.

Wasn’t it INCREDIBLE?! I love Derek and Shawn.
After this video finished I chose to watch Derek and Shawn on Ellen from October 5. It was fabulous, too.
Yup – it was amazing.
