I'm with Carol - I could take the gala dinner or leave it, depending on what others are planning.

I thought the 'entertainment' was horrifically memorable, for all the wrong reasons
I'm still in comms with the plate captain at the event, and he said just yesterday that he's been telling the story of how awful it was ever since :?

So maybe we should arrange some alternative?

Julia says that I should acquire a different DW wife each convention, she's fed up with ironing my dress shirt and getting gravy stains out of my DW waistcoats

Ah well, I guess that disqualifies me. It was a wonderful couple of years though! We'll have to raise a glass to our time together in L.A. :lol:
