Circo Hermanos Caballero

Mexican-American circus based out of Las Vegas. I saw their tent on the way home; unfortunately I found out about them too late and they are already packing up!

Apparently they had an incident on the morning of March 24th- one of their camels, “Romeo,” got away from handlers around the Oakland Coliseum and was making a break for the freeway. Don’t worry; they caught him in time and he didn’t hurt himself or anyone else.

I met this guy (Sanjay Patel) at APE and bought his book, “Little India.” It rules! You can see the illustrations on the web site.

  • Simple explanations of all the deities.
  • Bold pictures, and helpful labels.

We went out last night to celebrate my birthday again (on Tuesday we went to Chez Panisse), this time to a Japanese restaurant run by Chinese people- some of their sushi rolls were really out of control.

Everyone was incredibly stuffed, so we ambled over to Toys R Us, and saw The Boohbahs, which may be the worst thing in the universe. They are basically living plush pustules, larval forms of Teletubbies which look like a cross between a breast implant and a penis in freezing water.

They had the dancing ones there- we amused ourselves by activating lots of them at the same time. For the rest of the night someone would randomly make the “booh-bah” noise and then everyone else would hit them.

The Boohbahs, five magical atoms of power, light and fun travel in their Boohball around the world, from child to child. Fifteen countries are visited throughout the changing title sequence.
