Runaway and join the Cirque-us

My poor body needs a break. I've been out living it up every night since Wednesday. I can't look at beer right now. There were no hangovers involved thankfully but I get sick of beer if I drink it too many nights in a row.

I went to see Cirque Du Soleil Totem on Saturday. It was pretty good. I've never been to a Cirque show before. I just wish the little kid behind us would have shut up. I'm sorry, but don't bring a 4 year old to Cirque if they're just going to ask questions the whole time. Neither parent told him to be quiet or at the very least whisper. Then when the unicycles came out the father had to launch into this story about his unicycle days. Are you kidding me? Now is the perfect time for that. I did my best to block it out. My favorite acts were the trapeze and the roller skaters. Anyone want to run away and join the circus with me? My act will be cartwheels or kitty snuggling. Or maybe both.

What else did I do this weekend. Well I ate Indian food, I drank tiny drinks and larger drinks. I smelled Charlie's nasty onion and chive martini thing and gagged. I went out in Allston aka hipsterville USA and yelled at the cats for knocking over the recycling in the middle of the night. Being a kitty mom is hard work.

I think I have my summer jam guys.




How is Gwen Stefanai in her 40s?! She looks amazing. Can't wait for the new No Doubt album.

  1. Kitty snuggling while cartwheeling would actually be quite the act. As long as you make it out unscathed. I've never been to Cirque specifically, and I can't remember the last time I was even at a circus, but I'd get fed up if people behind me wouldn't shut up. It's just common decency and manners to stay quiet.

    1. I understand that it's a kid but at least tell your kid to be quiet!

  2. I only Cirque show I have seen is the dirty one they have in Vegas. Gwen has definitely found the fountain of youth. I am looking forward to the next tour they do because they are so amazing live.

  3. That onion martini sounds disgusting. People are always ordering pickle martinis at my bar and I want to vomit in them.

  4. I always wanted to run away and join the circus until I realized that the circus is full of clowns. Clowns freak me out.
    Cirque Du Soleil is really cool though. I also recently went to see it for the first time and was blown away by some of that trapeze stuff.

    1. The trapeze act was amazing. And clowns scare me too. At least cirque clowns aren't dressed like the scary clowns.

  5. I've seen one Cirque show and loved it! But I was in the furthest seat away possible. Seriously. Next time, I'm buying my tickets earlier. On the bright side, there was nothing behind me but a wall, so I couldn't really be bothered by annoying people talking right in my ear.

    1. We weren't super close but still had a good view. I would have loved a wall behind me ha ha.
