Summer approaches its end.

Oh golly, it's September already! My time is California is rapidly approaching an end. In addition to working quite a bit, I've tried my best to have some summer fun, too. This weekend I saw the new Cirque du Soleil show Iris in LA, which was amazing!! The first half in particular is all about the pre-history of cinema (my scholarly interest), and they did some seriously jaw-dropping things with light and movement. It was so, so great. Also, the show is in the Kodak theatre, where they have the Oscars, so that was really neat to see, and the music is done by Danny Elfman. Unstoppably good. Here are a few recent pictures.
Some delicious tacos that Becky made.

Oh, they are so delicious!
These tacos had grilled chicken, radish slices, cabbage, onion, and cole slaw (and a chipotle sauce). My friend also makes them with shrimp sometimes--also so good!

Congratulations on your wedding, by the way!
