"I was living in Dallas for that year... I remember one year for masked ball the theme was 'Gods and Goddesses.' I got a call from Arianwen, who asked, 'How many Muses were there and what were their names?' I said, 'There were nine of them, and I know about five names. Why?' She said, 'Because we want to go as the Muses to this ball.'
"It turned out that Patri had decided to come in a historical costume: Lorenzo de Medici came to a costume ball as Apollo. So, Patri was Apollo. The Muses are Apollo's daughters, so in court Patri sat surrounded by the nine Muses, and he claimed he felt like a very old man. It was quite resplendent - they were all in white with gold accents. It was very pretty."
"The major problem which we discovered when we got to the kitchen in one of those Quad dorms was that there were no knives. So, everybody that was there, including a group of heralds having a meeting there, was sent out to their cars to get their belt knives, and we did the feast with people's belt knives."
