Volcano!

Well, CDW is now done our gig at the Lantern Festival for another year. Hooray! It's been a sorta tough set of performances - for one of the dances, we had a different configuration of it for each night, and that really messed with our heads a little. But like the consummate professionals that we are, we pulled it all off in the end.

However, dancing a performance night after night kinda makes my muscles a little sore. Enter a wonderful recommendation from Gabrielle, a post-doc who sits near me. Lush makes this product called Volcano, which is like a mud mask for your feet. You're supposed to slather it all over your feet, and then put them in plastic bags to get the nice heating effect. I tried it on my feet, and they really felt amazing afterwards - seriously refreshed. Since my calves felt similarly tired, I decided to apply it to my legs, and then wrapped them up in saran wrap. And I really have to say that it felt SO NICE! I highly recommend it to all you dancers out there who want a treat for their tired legs. A little funny looking, but REALLY nice!

Mini update

Thanks to everyone for their birthday wishes! I really appreciated it.

Things I did recently:

  • went to Kim's bachelorette
  • spent some quality time catching up with Katty and Mita in the car to and from Ottawa
  • met Ernest's daughter Claire
  • met Jensen's daughter Alyssa
  • hung out with Nolan and Mike while they were in town from New Jersey
Things coming up:
  • Kim's wedding (duh)
  • Joe and Patty's wedding in Vancouver
  • Lantern Festival performance
I'll write a more comprehensive post about some of the stuff I did later. This was probably more for me to figure out what I can actually write about! :D
