calvin/hobbes yellow hug
- J and I went to see the new Cirque du Soleil touring show last night "OVO".  It was wonderful, there was one act where i would swear they turned the gravity off in part of the tent.  I watch those performers move with such grace and power and control, and oh I want that.  Maybe it's time to finally defeat the grade-school girl in my head who hates gym and start taking dance and gymnastics classes just to see.

- I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics Friday night and they were fun, though I think without Bob Costas telling me what everything meant I would have been confused as to why there were fiddle playing tap dancers, for one.  Their cauldron snafu made me sad, and as a stage manager I could hear the conversations in my head.  - What do you mean it won't open?  Can you fix it?  How long will it take?  Can the other three go up by themselves?-  Technology is a beautiful thing until it bites you in the ass.

- J also decided that the winter olympics were "north-hemispherist", heh.  We had a lot of fun looking up the dates and location of all the previous olympics to see how right he was.

- Today we're not doing anything particularly valentine-y.  On the list are our weekly Costco run and going to the laundromat.  I suppose clean clothes are love, in a way.

- Big hugs to my whole flist.  You guys help keep me sane, and make me laugh, and keep me connected.

Heh. We noticed this too. Although, to be fair, the snowy portions of the Southern Hemisphere tend to be fairly uninhabited.

True enough. We also found out that the "summer" olympics are much better - they have happened anytime between June and October depending on the location (Oct is likely still spring in Australia but close).

Clean clothes are definitely love. My "gift" to EK today was to take out the two big bags of trash (including the way-overdue icky under-the-bathroom sink collection) that he'd been promising for three days that he'd take care of. It's all relative, really!

It was actually a lot of fun. We put clothes in the washer and then went for a walk. When we returned we put clothes in the dryer and then ate lunch at a little Mexican place in the same plaza.

Exactly it's about doing something for each other, even if it doesn't fit the normal "romantic" theory of the world.

Also, my Idol partner has been on radio silence since Friday which has me a touch freaked out. I have something written (which I need to go work on now) but was hoping to get some feedback from her before I posted. Ah, well.

Exactly this. We came home and were folding clothes together (though I still fold mine and he folds his - heh) and joking around and passing hangers. It was just a lovely day.

A friend invited a group of us to an afternoon pole dancing class for her bachelorette party. It was a lot of fun and a surprisingly good work out. The place we went has very individual lessons which is cool, but expensive. I should try to find a place that does more group classes, it would be a lot of fun.

I had the exact same thing go through my head watching the cauldron hydraulic problem. That, and so glad it's not me. :) But I felt that overall each bit lasted a little too long. 'Course it's impossible to impress after Beijing.

We saw Ovo, I loved that final number in Act II, with the trampolines and the wall climbing. Very cool and original, which is getting harder to find as I see more and more Cirque shows.

Yeah, I though the opening ceremonies were fine, but not the same kind of blown away as Beijing.

I love that you knew exactly which act in Ovo I was talking about. You're right about seeing the same acts, but I brought J which is fun because this was only his third show so he's a little less jaded.
