My girl Clare is Strictly Come Dancing OBSESSED.  Ever since the season finishing in December she’s been somewhat lost and listless, pining for It Takes Two.  I won’t lie it’s actually quite good telly, watching boxers stumble over their own lead feet, seeing Bruce Forsyth gradually go completely senile and watching the tasty professional dancers appear in ever-skimpier costumes.

So for Christmas I bought Clare tickets for the Live UK Tour (which we went to last year too, but don’t tell anyone)

Proudly sporting the new fight club replica leather jacket Clare got me for my 30th, we first stopped into Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe for cocktails and lard:

Then head over to the MEN arena for the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour.  I’d taken my lovely compact camera, the Panasonic Lumix LX3 along for the ride and decided to test out the 720p HD video.  So I filmed a bunch of clips from the show and edited it together to a bit of Queen in iMovie 09.
