Cirque, Cirque

If you've never seen a Cirque Du Soleil performance, run . . . faster, faster . . . to the nearest opportunity to sign up for this EXTREME experience. The colors and costumes are as much a part of the cast as the acrobats, jugglers, comics, singers and musicians. A lizard in the forest is both a reptile and a tree. A sea creature skates across the "water" and ultimately down a "drain." A contortionist with breasts -- large breasts (not something you see on every gymnast) -- mesmerizes with twists and turns not possible for people with actual bones in their bodies.

It's amazing and utterly impossible to describe.

If you're as lucky as me, you'll get to take a friend in order to celebrate their me-ness and in the process have a grand time yourself.
