So yeah, I opted out of the Viennese Ball this year. I'm sure it will be wonderful and fun and all that, but it's a big enough event that I need some really significant motivation to bother with it all. Especially the bits about finding a date and dressing up in a tux and all that. Sometimes that kind of thing is fun, but I'm not particularly missing it right now.
Right about now, Tina-Kari-Jeremy's choreography should be in full swing at the Opening ceremonies, and I'm sure it is going beautifully. Congratulations to everyone in Opening!
