We loved the Cirque du Soleil performance of Michael Jackson Immortal world tour. The entire day was so much fun. Metro into D.C., tour of the Spy Museum, lunch at La Tasca's tappas bar, gelato in the afternoon (sounds like a pop song title), then walking around looking at architecture, visiting the National Portraiture Gallery for some inside cool air and sitting down time, then the performance. I would recommend it to anyone who likes MJ's music accompanied by outstanding acrobatic agility.
As for my sock in progress - I've reached the toe decreases, yay! I have begun limiting my time on FB as I discussed, and already it's been paying off. Should finish Sock #1 tonight or tomorrow. :)
