I signed up for this thing called #reverb10. A month full of prompts guided to help me reflect on this past year and focus on goals for the next.
December 9: Party.
What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)
Well, I have a little catching up to do… but I couldn’t let this one slip by…
A girl never forgets her first ball.
I digging back into memories way back at the beginning of the year. Getting everything ready… what dress? What shoes? What mask?
One of my band nerd friends started up Opera-Matic. The piece featured on the posters was in memory of 3 bicyclists in the city who were killed. It was a beautiful piece…
…as was the ball. I was meeting a handful of friends there. Fellow band nerds. I went alone, but spent the evening with Andy, David, Josh and his date. (This was shortly after Josh and I first met.) There was much talking. Much people watching. And very much dancing.
I’m the one in blue… and yes, I’m texting.
There were a lot of people, beautiful outfits. For the last few hours, I hung out at the bar. However, rather than throwing them back, I was mixing them up.
I’ve been to a number of parties, and this one set the bar pretty high for the rest of the year. And well, I can safely say nothing topped it — though Chrissy’s wedding was a lot of fun, as were the variety of Nintendo events (yay book club!) of this year too.
I truly hope Opera-Matic hosts another ball in 2011. (That or maybe I can get some of them to help me decorate my new apartment…)
