We're back from Las Vegas. It was a great weekend, but getting back home sucked. Traffic, traffic, traffic.

We saw several Cirque du Soleil shows, though -- Zumanity is wonderful and hot and lovely. Ka is awe-inspiring and huge and they blow lots of rings of fire. Mystere is still not my favorite, though it has some lovely points, and the clowns are really good.

And we saw Blue Man Group. It's wonderful. We sat *waaaay* down front. So for anybody who remembers a "waterfall" thing they do toward the end of the show (trying not to spoil anything), we got a *lot* of it. It was neat and amazing and slightly claustrophobic :-) But just in general, the Blue Men were amazing, musically and otherwise.

The girl and I saw some casinos, saw *enormous* crowds everywhere (NBA all-stars weekend, Chinese new year, president's day weekend), and generally did a bit of other sightseeing. Overall, a lovely long weekend.

Zumanity is awesome! I have yet to see Ka. "O" was my second favorite, after Zumanity. We had front row tickets, and I got lead around by the pre-show clowns for 30 minutes before they took me to my seat.

The people sitting next to us were very impressed by all our vinyl finery, which was very useful after the first giant wave of water came off the stage.

*sigh* I miss seeing Cirque shows.

PS - can you ask your girl to email me? (myname) @ (myname) .biz

Ka is big and impressive, and they make a lot more use of big stage effects. This may or may not be your thing - I loved it, the girl was less impressed.

"O" and Zumanity were both amazing :-)

Okay. I'll email her.

Going to see Ka in 2 weeks, I'm pretty excited. It'll be my first show and my first real vacation since I came to CA.

When Spyderella and I saw the Men of Blue, we were all the way in the back. It's a totally different perspective on the "waterfall"; you get to see the entire thing.

I can imagine... It was still pretty neat in the front :-)
