It felt like the social event of the season! I went with Steve and Holly and Jared - all dressed, as you can see, to the nines, but when I got there I met all kinds of cool folks - from doctors to photographers to costumers to non-profit types. We drank lots of wine, danced a whole heck of a lot, looked at shrunken heads, and some lady asked if she could lick my breasts. (Answer: no.)

The Mutter crew puts on an excellent Ball. The museum is an elegant place to hold a ball, because you can dance and drink and schmooze and then go look at some skulls. Brilliant!

Well done, Mutter Museum! I'm looking forward to hearing about the theme for next year already.
