Jenn's Birthday was Saturday

Jenn had her birthday on Saturday. I took her to the Cirque du Soleil show Delirium. The show was fantastic. We were in the 3rd row on the flow dead center of the stage. While it was great getting to see everything up close and personal, there are a lot of visuals that are projected on a sheer screen in front of the stage. Being so close to the stage, you couldn't really follow what was going on with the screens. Idealistically you probably want to be 50ft from the stage in order to order to see how the performers interact with the visuals on the screen. The best way I can quickly describe the show would be to call it a "modern day Opera."

After the show, Jenn & I went to Champps for dinner. Apparently there's a potato famine that I'm unaware of because I order both Potato Soup and Mash Potatoes with my meal and both times the server came up to me later and told me it would be a 15-20 minute wait, but I could get a substitute. Ended up getting a salad—which certainly is the healthier choice—and then got a free piece of cake for Jenn—which we split, ok I ate most of it—in place of my Mash Potatoes.

We then got back to the house and watched Hotel Rowanda—which was a very good movie, but started off a little slow.

Overall it was a really nice day.
