Thanks for the Cirque tip! I was just trying to figure out what to do for my 6 year olds birthday with a few friends in LA. Perfect! You are on top of it all!

I loved the Smiths in my day and I was a punk rocker in my day, and no I didn't have a mohawk either, but fish nets, yeah, lots, too.

I just remember the first time Vince came to pick you up. He was wearing very stone washed jeans and your dad asked him how he got flour all over his pants.

vince came to my rents' house? how memory reworks it all. i always thought that was a summer romp,only about late night make out sessions. no real dates.

but, that totally sounds like a snotty thing my, preppy architect dad would say! god love that man!he's always had fabulous aesthetic.

j-thanks for commenting : )
