HOOP DE DAH! Pep Pep Pep Pep Pep Catarina Valente


A little exercise may dislodge some of that impacted turkey meat from Thanksgiving. It could melt the Halloween candy still festering in your colon, and it will help burn off some of that bowl full of jelly caused by oddball Christmas treats like figgy pudding.
The best and cheapest exercise is...dancing! The Twist is one of the few dances that actually targets the vast waist-line. Your instructor? Catarina Valente.
Cat's been an international star for four decades, mostly from covering pop hits in a variety of foreign languages. One of her greatest achievements is her German language hand-clapping take on Joey Dee's "Peppermint Twist."
Not everything is translated into German. Along the perky way you'll hear "One two three kick!" and "Kiss me baby, twist me baby" and that's two English sentences more than the average U.S. immigrant will ever know. Too bad the average immigrant does not arrive wearing a peppermint bikini dance suit...with no place to hide weapons.

Just found this the other week, although the name is VALENTE.
This is my dad's favorite singer. I'm just appreciating her now, and this tune helps. Once I get my act together in a few weeks, I should have a contribution or two for you courtesy of Ms. Valente just in time for summer! It will be in true Ill folks style!

Thanks, BbertT...how gauche of me to have spelled it Valenti. It's been re-edited to make me look like I knew what I was doing.
