What a busy day. This afternoon I went and saw Cirque du Soleil with my family. Weird but very cool. Man, those guys are buff!! I just sat there, jaw agape, awing at the strength and control they have as they held themselves up on one muscly arm, body twisting slowly through gravity defying motions. Neato.

As soon as that was over, Jennie and I hurried over to the Lion Dancing competition where we were volunteering. That was lots of fun. We just sold souvenirs and still got to watch the show. So impressive! I know that there are two people in the costume, but the way they move it just looks like an animal. And of course the fancy moves were very ooh and ahh worthy. They hop across these poles that are up to about 9 ft off the ground, with standing pads of no more than a foot in diametre. How the hell they jump and land on them beats me, especially with two people attached together like that. It's really very cool to see. I'll narrate a play by play for you: hop hop hop turn hop JUMP hop JUMP turn JUMP stand hop hop JUMP swoop. Ooooooooooooh! Whistles and applause from the audience.

I'm exhausted. Need sleep. I will narrate a play by play of me going to bed: Shuffle shuffle blink shuffle flop click sigh zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

You mean there\'s actually people inside that lion? Now you\'ve just completely shattered all the illusions for me. I feel like the day I learnt Santa isn\'t real.
Thanks. :(
