My first charity ball has come and gone and I must say that I learned a very important lesson. And that lesson is this: It is very difficult indeed to list yourself for an event as a vegetarian when you hate mushrooms. The options were essentially "beef with beef sauce" or "mushroom medley encased in a mushroom crepe with pureed mushroom sauce topped with diced mushrooms and mushroom shavings". Awesome. At least there was chocolate for dessert.
