A list of funny/strange/crazy stuff:
In some small French cities, Sunday (or dimanche) is synonymous with Armageddon.
Animal flavored potato chips.
I didn't know who Jessica Lange was before 2012- OUTRAGEOUS. I'm ashamed.

Coucou! We arrived in Narbonne yesterday, the ninth out of ten-stop of the tour. Yep, it’s almost time to fly back to San Francisco! But despite the unusually cold weather and the long rides on the bus, the tour has been going well so far. Plus, I always like to come to France to perform because I get to see family and friends! Indeed, my mum and my brother came to the show in Le Havre, my friend Julia with whom I danced at the Bavarian State Ballet saw the performance in Villefontaine, and tomorrow my dance teacher from ...
I splashed some Mediterranean on my face today. C'est froid!
We have a day off in Cannes, and while I know most of my colleagues are trying not to spend all of their per diem on wardrobe refurbishments, I'm trying to not spend my per diem all on millefeuille and cannelle. It is gorgeous today on the Cote D'azur. It is plenty cold, but I'm surely grateful for the vitamin D.

Even now, it feels awful and I cannot dance ...
Back to France. For the last few years, we have done more performances in France than we have in San Francisco...
It’s 6:15am on January 20 and I’ve been up already for about two hours. The lioness, Jet Lag, has frequented my sleep since the start of this tour. She had me fooled the first couple days, as we had a nice flight that left SFO around 7:30pm and arrived in Zurich around 3:30pm, but now she has me sleeping on the wrong side of the meridiem--am to pm instead of pm to am. As opposed to a full-grown, ferociously protective mother of a litter of cubs found in the wild, she appeared as a cute ...
Ah, Europe. It’s been years since we last met. You are haunting and beautifully aged; you’ve been missed.
Company dancer Caroline Rocher was recently asked to participate in a campaign for Google+! She had a great time and the Google team was thrilled with our incredible dancer and beautiful studio!
It's a wrap! Alonzo King, dancers and film crew on site at Kerner Studios following the week-long filming of Scheherazade, Dust and Light, and Triangle of the Squinches for broadcast across Europe. Look for the DVD stateside next year.
