The burst of rain came at the conclusion of the Manchester victory over Chelsea in the Champions Cup – the first international soccer event held at Southpoint this year. More stuff was taken, as the Scissor Ceremony trickles to a close.

“What happened to your beautiful hair?” (a former student)

I do catch myself making various habitual gestures, but I do not miss it. ­čÖé I do wish I could have been able to be in two places at the same time throughout the party – :-/ – I enjoyed the time spent with people as they sifted through giveaway items and I wanted to be eating, dancing, and carousing with everyone else, too!

The actual cutting was fairly undramatic, no fell swipe, rather a rhythmic, razored progression up the back of my scalp. Commentary from the crowd kept me laughing – thank god I calmed down once I was sitting! Most of the rest of the evening I spent with friends as they selected among giveaway items. Unfortunately, this meant I missed most of the actual party :-/, however I did get to dance with the late-stayers for quite a lengthy turn. I took no blog notes (!); the upcoming photo gallery will have to suffice.
