So last night was a blast! We danced until our feet nearly fell off and headed home around 1. Christena and Carmen quite respectively, took their shoes off near the beginning of the night since they could barely dance, but me, on the other hand, endured the angry pain that consumed my feet from my very high heels because I was too afraid they would not go back on if I took them off. Everyone looked stunning. Tenie wore a blue ballet skirt with a pink halter top and her lovely new silver heels. Carmen was clad in a beautiful black halter dress that had red ribbon edging the different layers of her very puffy skirt...oh and her very nice new black strappy heels. I wore an egg plant halter dress with black heels and my hair was done quite nicely by Tenie. It was definitely a night to remember. When the song "Home for a Rest" came on, the room erupted into leg slapping, foot stomping and hand clapping. We were stomping so much that we made the CD skip! We then "Walked like an Egyptian," which was quite fitting as it was an Archaeology formal. There weren't many songs that we didn't dance to. We only stopped for water, or alcohol, breaks and by the time it was time to catch a cab, I was ready for sleep. It is an event we will definitely be attending next year. The crowd was small and the DJ was really good, which made for a nice combination. In March our university holds the annual Charity Ball. All of the proceeds from that event goes to a charity that the organizing committee picks at the beginning of September. If that formal is a repeat of last night, we're in for a great time! I can't wait. Oh yes, and Jetta was very happy to see us when we got home. Tenie and Carmen walked over and picked her up from Ashley's, as I could barely walk because of my stupid sore feet. She jumped into bed with me and fell fast asleep. She must have been busy playing with Medley and keeping Auntie Ashley company. The swim meet went well as well. My times were pretty fast and I nearly broke my own Canadian record. Ihave a meet in Montreal in February, so hopefully that record will be obliterated then. Anyway, off to get supper out of the oven. Oh and the quote of the day is taken from one of my favourite Greenday songs-it kind of suits the day as it's rainy as hell and a very peculiar day. *I wahsed the dishes, made muffins, washed the mats in the bathroom, overhauled the kitty litter, and read for my classes, have a group meeting tonight at 8:30, oh and found out my parents are having a fiftieth wedding anniversary party for my grandparents, which I must try to get home for* So it is: "Everything is dementedly okay."
