Browncoat Ball was a Blast...

Truly fabulous...though bittersweet.

The food was great -- not usual for that kind of a meal. Awesome barbeque. Though I had to leave the table for a minute, and the diligent waitstaff removed my dessert before I got a chance to try it. Probably for the best.

The dancing was fun to watch. Shanna and Joe were the only people I knew dancing, but they were doing a great job in the big set dances. Both Bedlam and Brobdingnagian Bards played for the dancers, and that was something in its own right.

And then there was the Brobdingnagian Bards last set as a band. I didn't cry last night, but just thinking about it makes me misty-eyed now. I guess part of it is that I have never really been such a part of any of my favorite bands in the past. I never got to meet any of the singers that awed me, or the musicians that made me jealous until I met Marc and Andrew back in 2002 and fell hopelessly in love with their music. It was my privilege to hawk their CDs, follow them around faires, and write Soul of a Harper. I knew they were special from the moment I first heard them play. Being the "official archivist" is something that I will always hold dear to my heart. I've watched them come such a long way together, and though now their paths diverge, I am looking forward to where they may go next. I will still be watching...

But enough of that...! One of my favorite parts of the ball (besides the abundance of Bards) was the collecting of the tokens from the tables. I think I have a full set. It was fun to get them. I hid my box of treasures from the Alliance, so I don't think anyone noticed I was brashly collecting them all, but the box goes into my archives. ;)

All in all, it was a great night -- until we got home and discovered a mouse behind the refrigerator that had chewed through the power cord...ah, well, back to reality with a meltdown.
