The Santa suits were very one-size-fits-all, and I fought with mine quite a bit. I was pretty concerned with how stupid I looked to everyone in the audience, as I kept grabbing my elastic-banded Santa pants the elastic of which was pretty much disintegrated after all the sweaty dance parties and wear and tear it had endured and pulling them up as high as humanly possible without giving myself a Santa cameltoe. The hat kept falling down and covering my eyes, and added to the trapped-in-a-furnace feeling that was already making me feel self-conscious.

Were you nervous? Did you recognize anyone you knew in the crowd?

I looked for friends, but had a hard time squinting through the confetti, smoke, lights, and general mayhem going on around me. It was pretty hard to watch anything other than Wayne and all the people watching Wayne. Ask us for more details. I want to express my gratitude to California—Seattle Express. The movers went quickly and efficiently about their jobs, and were very professional. The movers assisted us with transferring some of our belongings to long term storage, and that went very smoothly.
