...That's what Jazz said it looked like I was in, while I was talking to him, whatever it means. More on that in a moment....

Taking advantage of that brief blackout Wheeljack caused, I ducked out of the hall to avoid the more rowdy Autobots and their 'sport'... I entered the lounge.

And to my absolute delight I happened across Jazz there.

Oh, we talked for decacycles... My initial expression on loving music, and my past as a dancer was enough for him to launch into all SORTS of descriptions of the various music and dancing styles here on Earth. So often he included samples of the music, and demonstrated some of the dance moves he picked up. Ratchet's appraisal of him didn't do him justice! He is incredibly talented, and so diverse is his knowledge... I wish he had been my instructor, back at Iacon's Grand Dance Acadamy! As it is, I hope to become a student of his here, on Earth... and I hope to do his teachings justice.

He seemed quite amused, when I stated my intentions. He gave me a few discs, saying that there were video samples of all sorts of different cultural dances on them. I thanked him greatly, and told him I would study them immediately. He laughed, saying he knew I would.

Then he had to leave... some sort of business that had to do with pulling strings, or something... whatever that means... :/ Well, an enjoyable mech, and I so look forward to speaking to him again. Blaster, too... if he is anything like Jazz.

So here I am, still in the lounge, and I've been watching a couple of these videos. I am beyond captivated. Cybertron had nothing like this here. The sheer... VOLUME of different styles is nearly unchartable. The diversity is mindboggling.

I found I was drawn to this 'ballet', which was similar to styles I had learned on Cybertron, but I was quite enamored with this "Latin dance". So rich, so vibrant... *__* I decided to try some. A dance called the "Flamenco". Elegant, sweeping movements of body and arms, with some very quick, skilled footwork. It looks very challenging. I love a good challenge. :)

So even though it's so very "late" at night, now, I can't help but want to try some of these dances out. Most Autobots are likely in recharge, so I'll keep the music on a soft volume. But Primus... I have to giggle at myself. I feel like a rookie at the Acadamy, faltering over every second step! ^.^ It shall take me a while to learn all the moves to this dance, the variations, then improvisations... but I'm ready for that. Now, I think I'll close my log for the time being, and get back to my 'lessons'... :)

So you finally met the Jazz-man? *chuckles, grinning* Looks like you already found out he's extremely easy to get along with. Good to see he's been givin' you a taster of the Earth vibes too, and I'm glad you like what you've seen so far. ^_^

Oh, yes... extremely impressed with Jazz's knowledge, and all. :) There is so much to see and do here... I was nervous before, but now I am very excited to learn as much as I can. :D

And greetings to you, by the way. ^_^ It's nice to see another femme on the base. :D

"And greetings to you, by the way. ^_^ It's nice to see another femme on the base. :D"

Hey, nice to meetcha too. *smiles, offering a hand for the other femme to shake* Name's KC. You must be... Kaleidoscope? The one who came with Omega from Cybertron, right?

"There is so much to see and do here... I was nervous before, but now I am very excited to learn as much as I can. :D"

*grins* You'll learn after a while that Earth's a pretty vibrant kinda place. Or maybe you've found that already? *chuckles* Either way I'm glad you like it. Has Jazz offered to show you around the local area yet?

*takes KC's hand, shaking it politely* Yes, that would be me... *smiles back*

It's a little of both, at the moment. ^^; From what I've already seen, I'm stunned by the diversity, but I realize I haven't seen much, so I think I'm going to be a little overwhelmed by it all. ^^;;

And no, Jazz has not offered to show me around, yet. He seemed to be pretty busy, after we finished talking. I have had an offer to be shown around, though... :) Although, I do not quite know when exactly that will be... ^^;
