Almost there...

Dickens Week Three

Despite some fuss and upset this weekend, I had a lovely couple of days at fair. I danced with more than a few folks who pleaded total incapacity to dance, and who all walked away smiling. Friends we met in Disneyland came up and we got to spend an hour having tea before repeatedly getting them onto our floor. Randy took to waltz like a drummer - someone who instantly comprehends rhythm. I led Faye in the Duke of Kent's Waltz, only to end up next to Erik as he was being flirted with by an older woman who praised his good looks, his dancing, and then suggested that he find a nice Stanford girl. He said that he sort of had, and oh here she is now... just as the dance progressed so that I was standing at his side.

Another fun moment was in arranging the 2:30 show with the Swords of Gridlock and talking with one of their team who is English. He said, "Your accent is so spot-on it's getting me to up my speech to meet yours!" After years of effort to learn all the little variations and intonations, nothing is more gratifying.

One more weekend to go. It's going to be wall-to-wall humanity next weekend. I'll likely be hiding in Fezziwig's Warehouse. Even in the most crowded conditions, I can still enjoy a dance, but walking in the streets can be overwhelming. The only thing I plan to venture out for is to acquire a Christmas present at the chocolate booth.


  • This is why I plan to bring extra food this weekend. Trying to get a banger or something else is very difficult 4th weekend.
