FRIDAY: Even though I could have slept as late as I wanted to, I was up by 7. Grr. 8--Bought OSB tickets. Got more cash. 10-6--Watched amateur latin on all levels! I made a brief visit to the Regency Ballroom (pro-am) during a break in the action, but they were already on Heat 458 (open gold) so I did not get to see Fascination dance. (Believe it or not, after a slightly late start, the Battelle Hall (all amateur) managed to get ahead of schedule and had to slow down to allow competitors to arrive!) Back to room, w/difficulty. It is the official opening of the skybridge and there is a par-tay going on...including partiers in the skybridge. Live music, refreshments. Nice, but I have been out of the room for 8 hours and would like a few minutes of downtime. Then key card didn't work. Back down to lobby. I'm exchanging texts with Nik all this time. We might do a lesson here tomorrow. Over to North Market for some yummy food! But just as I'm buying my food, my phone starts ringing. Husband is supposed to be meeting up with my parents to drop off Child, as they are going to take her to a Broadway matinee...but he's stuck in awful traffic due to some mega-accident ahead. Could I call my parents on my Mom's cell? Do that. Finally get to eat yummy food: roasted eggplant over veggie rice, with small Greek salad and pita. 8:30-12--Back in Battelle for Friday night at OSB! (It started at 8:00, but I wanted to make sure everything was sorted with Husband and Child first. They made it to the the rendez-vous point...a little over an hour late, but they survived!) 12:30--Back to room, decompressed, bed.
