A lack of dancing will very likely result in me taking a two-month hiatus from this forum. Why?

Will you have to take breaks from other forums too? From other activities?

"A lack of dancing" - should you have danced? Should someone else have?

Any other relevant people in this puzzle?

:-( "Me" = you, Balin? Yes

(Please, please, please don't go...we all like you here!) And I like it here, too...but it'll only be two months. And it's not definite yet, but it is highly probable.

Will you have to take breaks from other forums too? From other activities? Yes to both

"A lack of dancing" - should you have danced? Yesish Should someone else have? Yesish

Any other relevant people in this puzzle? Yes

Have you had the opportunity to take dancing lessons earlier? And you didn't do it? And now you need to know how to dance for some reason? And you need to take lessons? Or otherwise have to do some sort of practise?

Is a ball relevant? Any other kind of celebration or ceremony? A play?

Dancing - as in moving rhythmically to music?
or dancing - as in quickly changing one's story to avoid confrontation?

It would work for about 5 other schools. And they aren't all Christian colleges, but a Christian organization is relevant.

You said no to Kaygee's nice definition of dancing. Whatever this dancing involves, is music relevant? Do you move any parts of your body at all? Is it all virtual?

Will you be away from this forum (gonna miss you, though) as punishment? Because you will have no time left over? Computer problems relevant?

By the way, I love the way you're choosing to announce your hiatus. It's only a matter of time before two LTPF Members announce their marriage through a puzzle. Mark my words, it will happen someday.

By the way, I love the way you're choosing to announce your hiatus. It's only a matter of time before two LTPF Members announce their marriage through a puzzle. Mark my words, it will happen someday. I'm sure it will too. I've always thought it'd be cool to have a puzzle run by two people at once, where you could ask each person separate questions to come up with an answer.

Has the lack of dancing already occurred? Important when that was?

Will you go somewhere special during the break? Will you be doing something special? Will you dance?

Are there computers but only certain persons have permission to use them? Or can you use them only under certain conditions (which are unlikely to occur)? Is the Internet access limited in some way? Will you be able to visit only certain websites and the LTPF isn't one of them? Or aren't there any computers (or at least none being connected to the Internet) but you could go online with an alternative device such as a smartphone?

was it due to the fact that you were not dancing that you got talking to someone and agreed to go on the retreat?

is the reason no-one was dancing relevant? was there in fact any music? was there music which no-one wanted to dance to? or were you in a place where dancing would be frowned upon?

If you did not know about it beforehand, did you decide to go only based on that conversation? And if you did know about the retreat beforehand, did the person/persons give you some information you did't know already?

I'm trying to do a recap, please tell me if it's correct:
You were at a yopishly school related event where nobody danced although they could have. You talked to three people and got to know about some kind of retreat. The retreat will start in May, take two months and take place in South Carolina. Because you're on the retreat you have to take a break from several activities, including the LTPF and other online activities.

were they just a group of people who didn't dance? for example due to religious beliefs?

Did somebody get angry that nobody danced? The organizer perhaps?

Had something sad happened before so that nobody felt like dancing? Had someone died?

RECAPPING EVENTS IN ORDER:

-I go to the dance.
-Nobody dances.
*something happens here*
*something else happens here*
-I find out about the retreat.
-I decide to go, and sign up.

Sorry, I read "The reason is relevant".

Does one of the "somethings" involve...
food?
drink?
music?
a speech?
a presentation or performance?
a party game?

a speech? Noish to this...
a presentation or performance? ...and this, No to rest
a party game?

Was it an announcement? No. By the way, both the speech and presentation are "Noish" to the second something. The first one is far more important, and is much simpler.

You leave the dance? Come to think of it, that's between the two somethings. It's even simpler than this.

RE-RECAPPING EVENTS:

-I go to the dance.
-Nobody dances.
****something happens here****
-I am invited to go to Campus Outreach (where I heard about the retreat).
-I go to Campus Outreach.
-I find out about the retreat.
-I decide to go, and sign up.

So why was I able to go to CO in the first place? And why was the person able to invite me? Remember, I was enjoying it there even though there was no dancing.

Did the organizers close the dance due to the fact that nobody danced?

Did the organizers close the dance due to the fact that nobody danced? Yes! Well, almost, but only off by a hair, so

**********SPOILER**********

The order of events that Monday:

-I go to a student-run Cookie Dance.
-Nobody dances; everyone just sits around and talks.
-The students running the dance decide to end it an hour early.
-Another student invites me to Campus Outreach, starting in a few minutes. I accept.
-I go to Campus Outreach and find out about this retreat.
-That night, I sign up.

So because nobody was dancing, the dance ended early, allowing me to go to CO and thereby sign up for the retreat.

Excellent work, everyone. And I will note again: I will not have my computer while I'm down in SC, but I may be able to access a computer at times (though it will definitely not be as often). But we'll see how it all goes.

Aww man... So when is this retreat? And what kind of retreat is it? Just a hang out and chill retreat? Or do you do stuff?

It's from late May through late July. It's more of an outreach/discipleship retreat - I don't know all the details - although we do get to hang out as well. And hold a job.
