I really enjoyed the Sustentacula set that happened afterwards, though I wasn't sure what to expect. I wouldn't have guessed that I would enjoy dance-pop when I was in no mood for dancing, with basement ceiling a few mere inches above my head, but I really did, and I was pretty blown away by Ryan's ability to play drums along with laptop beats.
The parade that followed? It was a delight to see my old electric bike pulling a 9-foot dragon float. I felt a little sheepish making noise in the street at a late hour, but there aren't really that many opportunities in a man's life to join a birthday parade with an electric bike pulling a 9-foot dragon float. There are probably more of said opportunities in this particular city than in any other place I've lived, I suppose.
After yesterday's herculean party and going-out-to-do-things efforts, I'm more than content to stay at home and be completely dull today. Ah, sweet dull life.
