Love for Love

I don't know if you've heard, but Kid Sis just got a great new gig working for Cirque Du Soleil. One of the perks, is that she has to go see all of the shows and I was luckily enough to be her date to LOVE tonight.

I hadn't been to a Cirque show since I was 9 and saw Mystere.

After tonight, I don't know why I've been wasting the last 18 years. Love was the most visually stimulating show I have ever seen and would you be surprised if I told you the music was a trip in itself? Yeah, I didn't think so.

I've always enjoyed the Beatles, although I do not own any of their albums and didn't particularly have a favorite song....I do now though, about 30 of them.

I am sure that I was clapping and saying WOW and OH MY! at totally inopportune moments throughout the show but I was just blown away, I couldn't contain myself. I would like to try any of the acts they did in the show but I am so clumsy, I would be sure to (seriously) injure myself. Everything was just perfection. The acts with the songs - the lighting, the cast, the theater itself and the white sheet of magic LOVE LOVE LOVED LOVE.

Thank you, Kid Sister for something I will remember for the rest of my life.

In short, I would like to live under the sea in an octopus's garden with this show.

Forget Love, are those heels I see on Knochers' feet? I want a close up of THAT. Holy crap, I've never before witnessed this. Are full on platforms next?

Ha Ha HA, X. I promise, if you take me to a show - I will wear heels. Notice though that there is nothing 4 inches about those puppies though, still like 'em low to the ground.
