However, as I've said before, you just cannot keep the Ponies down when something is this important. It's the twenty-first century, we have technology, and by god, we are going to use it!
Therefore, here is the plan for Pony Passover this year: I will go to the gamelan rehearsal in Chicago, and then come straight home, fix me a plate of brisket and wait by the phone. When the East Coast seder is drawing to its singing climax, a speakerphone will be brought into the dining room, and they will give me a call. I will get to participate remotely in the singing by speakerphone.
Have I mentioned how awesome the Pony Family is recently?
