Happy new year! New Year's celebrations are either spectacularly great or spectacularly dull - the excessive expectations and the excessive alcohol consumption leave little room for anything in between. When you happen to spend new year at a Swing ball in Scandinavia, however, you're surrounded by people busy worried about they're coordination and beer that costs more than your grandmother.
With alcohol removed from the equation, my vision was unmercifully sharp when my eye caught my not so secret crush dance partner kissing a Swedish theology student. Immediately "It's My Party" started playing in my head and I was embarrassed that my subconscious had selected a song so cheesy and old that it could be my father. The next morning, I replaced the background music in my head with Robyn's "Be Mine!" but it's too late to cover the truth that I'm less cool than a theology student.
