I don't care about So You Think You Can Dance. Except when I do.

For example, last night, being in a state of emotional collapse over a certain well-known movie, I was not in the mood to hear Mary Murphy laugh and scream on at least ten separate occasions.  Meaning I didn't so much watch the dance show as tape (the last 2/3 of) it.  And then fast-forward through all of it, upon realizing that I didn't give a rip about any of the dancers, with the notable exception of "OMG NEIL + LAUREN = OTP!  How fantastic is it that my two favorites are paired together??  They lack sufficient chemistry to make them Benjelle 2.0, but as I don't think anybody else can accomplish that level of chemistry, I will settle for the pretties dancing together, because they do have a certain flair.  Happy happy, joy joy!"

And then I noticed that Lacey and Kameron are paired together..."Blech.  Fitting, though, putting my two least favorites together.  Now I'll always be able to skip their segments entirely, at least until one of them's voted off."  It took me about 13 minutes to go through the hour and 20 minutes of footage I had.  I just didn't care.

Results: "Okay, NOW I care."

*spits and curses America*  Your voting choices suck.  I mean, they REALLY sucked. 

No, that's not entirely true.  2 of the couples you pulled out were indeed fairly worthless, but then you failed to fail to vote for Kameron and Lacey, when OH MY GOD THERE IS JUST SO MUCH ICK IN THERE.  Mostly from Kameron, but Lacey's drooling over him didn't help matters.

So instead of putting the ick couple on the chopping block, you targeted the pair who, over the course of the results show, had developed into my second favorite.

And that's the one the judges chose to cut.  And I so hate you, America, for giving them that option.

Ricky's dancing was like magic.  MAGIC I TELL YOU.  Watching his leaps either turns up the heat or gives me chills, I can't decide which, and he can capture ecstasy in 30 seconds. 

And Ashlee?  Well, we saw so little of her actual dancing (and I wasn't paying attention during her solo...I wasn't paying attention to most of tonight, actually) that it's hard to tell, but I rather liked her smokin' tango last night.  Plus she was really cute and really spunky, and while I think her bubbliness might have eventually grated on my nerves, it was still too fresh to bother me. 

Meanwhile, Baby Sabra (seriously, she's like a pixie.  Standing next to Cat, she looks about 4 feet tall) bored me to tears, as did Cedric, and I deeply wish they'd been sent home tonight.  Bitterly disappointed, I am.

Not even the fact that Benji did a solo tonight can cheer me up.  Mostly because I'm trying to bleach my brain of the part where he dropped trou at the end to show off a pair of American flag-patterned briefs.  WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?
