Birthday Part A

Or Ammy's Birthday (Observed)

The day started out on an odd note, with me managing to stress out about a meeting that wasn't what I thought it was going to be. While fretting over that meeting, I forgot about another meeting. Arg. But, that aside, I pulled it together and went to the library for a Zimbra demo. Once again, there were actually ooohs and ohs. This is good. From there I biked over to the Multicultural Springfest and met up with the gang. And we danced. And Melanie took video:
- Galway
- Polka Set part 1
- Polka Set part 2
Our final set was actually Galway Reel for 6 in a Line, Fairy Reel, Hallucination Jig (shortened slightly), and a polka set of doom. It went really really really well. Everyone worked so hard for the past 6 weeks to get these dances looking sharp for the show and the first thing they said when we came off stage was, "Wow! That was amazing. We should've had you guys on way earlier!" So, hopefully we can do this again next year.

After getting some actual work done, I headed out to Camera 7 for pizza and Indiana Jones. The movie was a bit unfocused, but it had a good enough amount of that old Indy charm. After the movie, we all stood around and drove trucks through the plot holes, prop issues, and quirks of the movie, which was fun too. All in all, it was a lovely way to spend my birthday, and I get to do it again for real tomorrow at KublaCon and FNW in Oakland.
