Things on my mind

A most lovely weekend, which — despite whatever results from this coming week — will hopefully still remain wonderful in my mind.

  • Went to my first Viennese Ball to watch K+E’s opening choreography. I’m glad that all their hard work paid off; it really looked like the two of them whipped everyone into shape. And their dances definitely had their cuteness stamp all over the choreography. I might actually be tempted to stay and dance next year… we’ll see. Also, a lesson: don’t throw out all your white dress shirts just because you’ll never need them for work.
  • Saturday morning and early afternoon were, like, perfect.
  • And then rehearsal started and it was pretty much sheer madness. The AD looked like he was re-choreographing the piece on the fly. My working memory was about 8 counts, and the girl’s been battling some ankle/foot injury and can’t go full out (which means I couldn’t copy or cue off her). So all we have to go by is some video captured on his phone of us weakly marking the steps. It’s going to be a long 10 weeks of rehearsal…
  • Ran some errands on Sunday. Got a smog check for my car which cost $60; I guess not too many places are open on Sun. Went shooting with sister and some friends. Also first time I went to costco in a while. All those TVs near the entrance were calling me. Should I buy a TV and maybe a couch to go with it?
  • The nights have been a bit quiet, so I’ve been making it through The Annotated Hans Christian Andersen. Some of these fairy tales are pretty serious, especially the ones he wrote later in his life.

  1. Yeah! Stay for Viennese next year! You can take Tuesday night dance classes with Richard Powers to get better. Wish I could still take dance from him..of course that could be solved by moving back to the bay area…

    Since when do they let you shoot guns in costco? This would make shopping much more exciting.
