- 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.
