I would shoot myself if…

There are limits to what I can take. This Christian website of K & K Mime is a great example of behavior that would push me over the edge. Now, I’m not likely to ever shoot myself over a mime (or a Christian), but I would be willing to make a scene – like a noisy and abrupt departure full of fake rage and attitude.

I saw Marcel Marso when I was 17. It was an epic 3 hours show which failed to hold my attention for longer than 5 minutes. If I were not the guest of my girlfriend’s family, I would have slipped out and walked the 30 miles home. I could say the same thing for the Cirque du Soleil show “O” which I saw last Thursday night at the Bellagio. Besides the incomprehensible French humor, the show was also boring and tedious (Except for the Chinese acrobats!). I was trapped there too. The casino beckoned, but I was surrounded by my co-workers. Leaving would have been bad form.

So, if you mix twin mimes with a fundie beat, (or mix mimes with anything) I would contemplate running for the hills (or worse). K & K Mime – it seems like such a bad idea. Make it stop before some kid is scarred for life. I hope it’s a joke. Unfortunately, “O”. is no joke and you must pay $150 to watch it.

btw - My tip to Las Vegas was a bust. My iPhone was stolen on the first night (I did not realize how much a part of my life the silly thing had become). I lost at every game I tried, including poker. My Gmail account was hacked by somebody in China on the first day of my visit. I could not access Gmail or my blog account until things some security issues were worked out this evening. I also had trouble sleeping on the short beds at the Palazzo (I swear they must cater to people under 6 feet tall). I even lost a dress shirt… Worse still, I was given a TomTom as a gift while in Las Vegas and sure enough, it does not work. Of course, there were outstanding moments too. My wife joined me for a romantic meal at Table 10 (which is an unassuming foodgasm level restaurant) and we were able to spend some quality adult time together for a change, so it was not all bad.

I’m not complaining really. I'm happy to be alive and thankful for a loving family and good friends. But, if I ever catch the guy who lifted my iPhone, I’ll bring out Evil Joe for awhile just to settle the score.
