I've been running all day, so many errands. They just never stop.
My new car's name is Greta. She's a grey Ford Focus, and has excellent gas mileage. I picked her up Friday, but I got her title today. My Friday night date dared mock her. Given that he looks like Strax from Doctor Who, and was definitely not 5'9", I don't think he gets to judge her so harshly.
I went to Climb Iowa on Tuesday with Matt. I've already gone back. This is just the right level of torture/mental challenge that I need from a work out. My shoulders are begging me to find new activities. Poi, pole dance, aerial silks, and climbing are all very upper body intensive. It's neat, but I need to do something for my legs. I am taking suggestions for fun and physically active things that require more dynamic leg movements.
Anja McClosky just performed at Thursday night Open Circus. She's an accordionist from the UK, and she's fantastic. She had a violinist with her, and it was beautiful. This makes the hour long block of comedians coming up later totally worth it. (Fun fact: My "smartphone" doesn't recognize accordionist as a word. It keeps "auto-correcting" abortionist. Equally fun, but I'm not sure allowed onstage in this state.)
Nick Strickland and his DJ are currently rocking the Open Mic stage. It's a good night so far. I love mixing live sound.
I'm never going to be a comedienne. But I have some advice from behind the soundboard if you're considering it.
1: If you're serious, go take a class about public speaking or acting. Your ability to project yourself well is vital.
2: Be confident. If you're not, fake it until you make it (The class might help)
a) Why it's awesome that you're fat and/or lazy.
b) Rape. Just don't go there.
c) Being willfully ignorant about important issues for your comfort.
If you can't be funny without being a complete asshole, you're not actually funny, you're Mancow. (don't be that guy).
To end on an awesome note, check out Bryan Baker. That guy is awesome, he makes silly and articulate nerd music about werewolves and zombies and stuff.
