gingerbread house

The gingerbread house project with Sara and Annie was fun! Both of them helped me tremendously, especially in making sure the utensils used to mix the icing were kept clean. :-) The kit was supposed to come with an icing decorator tip, but it didn't! We ended up putting the icing on with our hands instead...very messy but lots of fun!! I managed to clean up most of the mess before Ruth came home so she wouldn't freak.

Later that night (Wed), I met up with Allison and Jodi. We had dinner at The Keg in Sheppard Center, abandoning all pretense of a practice and just gabbing for hours over boozy coffees. :-)

Went to the ballet (Manon) last night with Cathy. Love the costumes, the music, of live ballet. I used to do work as a pianist for a ballet school in Toronto...that was kinda fun. Whenever the teacher was explaining a new move to the students, I'd be surreptitiously practising the footwork under the piano bench. :-)

Hung out at Cathy's place tonight. We rented a Japanese movie (dubbed) called SHALL WE DANCE? that both of us really enjoyed. Cathy got more of the dancing jokes than I did because she takes lessons. I'd love to take lessons sometime, but unfortunately (1) I am hopelessly uncoordinated, and (2) Jeff doesn't do the "formal" dancing thing.

Allison's filk is tomorrow! I'm sleeping over afterwards.
