Gods and Marionettes
For the last 3 months I have rarely had an evening out, so it was a treat to bring a gal pal to Gods and Marionettes at USC last night. (For the record, my friends and family are Bruins, NOT Trojans.)
This show is a collaboration between the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company and Sonos, a SoCal a capella group.
While it's always great to watch live performances, even more necessary was just spending time with a friend. (In LA, this happens a lot less than in other cities I've lived in.) She introduced me to a kebab joint in Little Tokyo that was so hipster it had a DJ.
We met a 6 foot 11 black guy who was trying to eat gelato with a teeny tiny spoon and finally gave up. This was amusing considering my friend and I are short Asian girls who rolled around in a mini cooper all night. (HERS. I wouldn't be caught in public driving a tiny car.)
I might not go out often, but when I do, I make it count.
Now back to my regularly scheduled hermetic life.
