Oh yes, and zeroth, this Saturday the UC Berkeley Ballroom Dance team is hosting their fifth annual competition. I'll be competing around 1:00 p.m., and dag29580863 will be dancing throughout the day. It's free for spectators and right in 237 Hearst Gym on campus.

UPDATE 4/22: it looks like the competition isn't free for spectators after all, like I thought it was - it's $5 for students, $10 for others.
