I go swing dancing on Friday nights with the university club, and it's fantastic. Consequently I usually end up staying up past my bedtime, given that my summer schedule means that I have to work Saturday mornings. But those members of the club who stay 'til the end of the night (around 11pm) usually go out to get something to eat after dancing. This week it was frozen yogurt.

While we were sitting around talking, N told us that she had inherited a frozen turkey from our friend S when he moved to Chicago. Setting aside the bogglement that S had bought a large frozen turkey, presumably a year in advance, N explained that she didn't really have space to keep it, and would we be interested in having a Thanksgiving dinner, preferably tomorrow or Sunday, since she was thawing the turkey? The response was a resounding, if moderately flabbergasted, yes.

So a bunch of people I know from various activities (as well as people I hadn't yet met) showed up at N's house with Thanksgiving-y side dishes last night, and it was delicious. After that we watched "Strictly Ballroom," since the swing dancers had been discussing dance movies earlier. Then of course, we all felt like dancing, but it was late, so that will just have wait.

:D I think I remember reading that you swing dance on your journal at some point. So does your new school have a club? I think mine also has ballroom, but I haven't had time to check or go to it yet, although I like that too. One of my friends just told me about a ballet class, but I think it might conflict with other activities...

they have a swing club, but i don't know if they have a ballroom team. besides which, i wouldn't want to compete, and i've gotten the impression that ballroom teams can be really snobby...

Yeah, I was never on any teams, the clubs we had just danced for fun.

This sounds like the best way to spend a couple of days. Food, dancing, food, dancing, etc.
