I Go to the Land Down Under

It's been a long long time since I've posted. Truth is, I've been busy. Doing what, I don't know, it's not like I have a real job or anything. But I've been running around. First I went to New Hampshire for Thanksgiving with my parents, then I went to Las Vegas to compete in the Holiday Dance Classic. And now I'm preparing for the trip of the year: I'm going to Australia for about two weeks.

Holiday Dance Classic was great, I danced very well, wore a new dress that looked wonderful on me, and even got to see "Phantom of the Opera." "Phantom" was lovely, I was afraid it was going to be very cheesy, but it was really rather lush and romantic. I enjoyed it -- although I did nearly fall asleep at one point. Not because the musical was bad or boring, just because I couldn't keep up any more. I had gone out for cocktails and dinner beforehand at one of Mario Batali's restaurants, and I guess there is only so much fun I can handle at once. I'm trying to get the video up, but am having problems digitizing it. Actually, it digitizes just fine, but when I upload it to YouTube it gets converted into something else and looks awful. This is not something I've had an issue with before, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what is going on.

I'm leaving for Australia in a couple of days, and have come to the stunning realization that I have no summer clothes. I've been living in San Francisco for nearly 15 years. It rarely gets really hot here, and it rarely gets really cold. I can't shop for anything because it's the dead of winter, either. I'll have to sort this out and figure out what to pack for the trip!
