I will never, but never be as cool as my friend Katie. Forget all the other amazing things she's done, forget that she's smart and funny and lovely and down to earth. She's just run away to join the circus. For an entire year. This. Is. Awesome.

Just talked with her for about half an hour (sorry, anyone who tried to call during that time. circus talk trumps all) and was delighted to hear every last detail of her experience so far. I'm too old and too rooted for such a venture. You're damned straight I'm living vicariously through her!

Also, the notion of Katie wrestling Newman the pig for his mini Snickers bars will keep me grinning for days.

She really is the most awesome person on the planet.

That is definitely an exceptionally high level of coolness. How does one go about running away and joining the circus, these days?

Right?!? She answered an ad in the paper, had an interview, and lo! she's the pony/ferret/capybara handler. Sporadic internet access aside, she's looking to keep a blog about her experiences. Will post a link once I have it.

Can not WAIT until they're settled in for their NYC run. Am hoping she'll introduce me to the Arabian horses and (fingers crossed!) Percy the porcupine.

...did you say capybara? Heck with the porcupine, I want to meet the capybara!

I dunno, you're pretty darned fantastic. I want to be you when I grow up!
