The Circus

Pardon me, I meant to say, the 'Cirque'...

Not much going on the past few weeks, which has been just fine by me. But on Saturday we ventured back to San Francisco to take in a little show.

This was my third Cirque du Soleil show (does that make me a groupie? I kind of hope not...) and Nate's first. It's hard to describe these performances to someone who's never heard of them. Uh, it's a French-Canadian, there aren't any, there isn't a bearded lady...but there's lots of really cool acrobatics, great music and not a word of English.

See? That doesn't sound super special, does it? But the thing is that the show is amazing. I'm pretty impressed on a normal day at what a normal body can do. But these folks...they bend and balance and jump in a way that my 'normal' body will never know. Both Nate and I smiled through most of the show, just from the amazement of it all.

The Circus, combined with an oh, so delicious dinner at Houston's, and not a drop of rain in the city made for a perfect date!
