Britney- A Flashback

Woah, Nelly. Or- should I say- Woah, Britney.

I may or may not have had more college flashbacks in the past 30 minutes of watching Glee than I've had in the entirety of 2010.

You see- back in the day we? Were all about the Britney. I think that my entire time living in the Kappa house was fueled by one giant Britney Spears soundtrack. There were posters. Breakout dances in the middle of crowded bars. There was even a roadtrip that involved driving from Tempe, AZ to Las Vegas and back, in a single day, all for the sake of attending a Britney concert. (That one clearly deserves its own post, at another time)

One of the mainstays in our sorority dorm was the evening workouts. But your typical evening workour, this was not. In our opinion, Billy Blanks Tae Bo was for wussies.

We? Did Britney Abs.

You don't remember the Britney Abs workout video, you say? Well, that's because it didn't exist. What did exist was a VHS tape filled with back-to-back-to-back-to-back Britney music videos, gingerly passed from dorm room to dorm room. Night after night, we congregated religiously into someone's room, popped in the tape, and the workout began.

It consisted of us performing 1 solitary ab exercise over and over and over again, for the entire length of a music video, and then switching up to the second move as soon as the next video started. On good nights, we would go through at least 4 straight videos, crunching away like our lives depended on it.

It was tough. It was motivational. It was beyond necessary in order to sport those asymmetrical almost-crop tops emblazoned with "Ride the Bull" in rhinestones across the front that we coveted from bebe {*insert extreme shudder here*}

I haven't seen any old school B. Spears videos in at least 3 years, but as soon as those video scenes came on Glee tonight it felt like a little robot had taken control of my body. I knew each and every dance move in my head, and still managed to mimic all the choreography. And the hair flipping. And the heaving. (Thank Goodness my husband is in class right now, he would have thought I was having a seizure right here on the couch.)

Funny enough- it didn't motivate me enough to get up OFF the couch, and actually do any crunches.

Guess my motivation needs a little work.

I love the Brit Brit!!! I remember being fascinated by everything about her- from her clothes to her boyfriends and her friends. I was trying to think of a celebrity today who has that kind of power and I couldn't even name one. Maybe it's just because I'm not that pop culture saavy anymore, but I think Brit was on a level with Madge and a few others.

Oh my gosh, I had (conveniently?) forgotten about those bebe shirts.

I missed Glee last night due to the OAR concert. Now I'm so excited to get home and watch it!!

This cracked me up! I cannot count the number of times we danced on the stage of the DKE basement to Toxic and Slave for You! And I was probably wearing one of those shirts. Sigh.

I L-O-V-Ed Britney, and I love this post! Perhaps because we were all dancing and singing to those very same videos ourselves? Tee hee.
