So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

::Sorry. The entry was simply unfinished. I have to figure out how to change that passworded message::
Tonight is the ball. Will I make it to the ball?
I haven't got a dress! Alack!
I haven't got a date! Alack!
Ahh... last year I had a dress and a date*. A dashing young Johns Hopkins graduate with a master's degree in international relations, working in Washington DC, and about to become an officer in the Army. Sounds like the 40s! And the dress!
This year I'll just have to get sloshed and dance the foxtrot with a bunch of drunken alums. And by that I mean stand shyly at the edge of the dance floor until I get tired and take off my shoes and sit in a chair for the rest of the evening, watching old alums doing the foxtrot. I'll probably wear the same dress as last year. Who am I trying to impress?
*ok, so he was a friend from high school up to visit for the weekend. Same thing.
:( What happened?

In unrelated news, there's a Brown grad student a few doors down the hall. He's not in geo, though. But when I saw the sign on his office adorned with the Brown insignia, I wondered if he was, and if he knew you, and whether or not we'd be besties because we know the same awesome people. So I checked the department website and alas, he is not part of your cohort. He's a grad student in Biology and Medicine, though, so even though we might not share acquaintances, we might share research interests.

I'll go to the dance! I don't know how to foxtrot, but I can do the MC Hammer dance and you and I both know no one can touch this.

You should BUY a DRESS! Dresses are so much fun! Besides... it's like a whole outfit in one piece!

You poor thing.
I never had a prom ball or banquet or even a Bday invitation. Just forget a date. Never been on a date either. :-(
