Perhaps out of the fear to stand on the stage and also the pressure from the attempt to look energetic and at the same time charming, afterward I almost thought I was gonna faint or be sick. Nowhere to sit so I just leaned against something then went half asleep while the lot continued fulfilling their dancing desire, which, in my opinion, was aroused by C64 and the bumblebee. :)
Solidarity! C was absolutely sweet--I really felt we were in this together since the moment I promised to do the dancing with her: exchanging messages about how nervous we felt, deciding what to wear, getting ready together, screaming at the back stage to release pressure, ordering/delivering/eating pizzas in short skirts and geisha makeup.
Fantastic fun. I'll never forget....
