every year i talk about going to see the elephants as they walk into the city for the circus's stint at msg. and every year i deal with the same problems: isn't it kind of sucky that they make the elephants do all that dumb shit in the first place? aren't circuses kind of horrible (not to mention scary)? how do i stay up until midnight without getting drunk and ceasing to care about getting up to 34th street? won't it be cold just standing around outside?
anyway, here it comes again, gmist says it's next monday night at 12. will i go? doubtful. especially since i'm pretty well guaranteed to see much more interesting elephants in india.
