I don’t know about you readers who aren’t here in Texas, but I have seriously hit the point where I feel as if I’ve entered into some sort of trippy cartoon time-machine and I’ve been blasted with Professor Cold Heart’s Ice Machine. I can take a couple of days of being cold. And I can take a couple of days of being wet, but a bunch of days of being both?? Ummm… No thanks, no time.
First of all, I am going to go ahead and offer an upfront apology for my bloghavior for the next few weeks. The last few months have been pretty low-key for me but I’m starting to get involved in a few things that are probably going to keep me from writing and commenting as much as I’d like to, plus I’m going to be packing and moving and such (which is no easy task for me.) But please know I’m still reading, and hopefully I’ll have more time than I’m anticipating!!
I’m feeling a little overwhelmed about it all, but on the upside, I think I did finally find a place to live!!
Oh sure, I still need a few things… like a bed, a washer, a refrigerator, and oh, I dunno… Maybe 5000 dollars or so.
I’m trying to do things a little different this time around. Meaning, this time when I pack, I’m going to attempt to actually use boxes rather than just throwing random things in huge trash bags. I think I could benefit from a little (read: A ton) of organization in my life. I’m thinking it will go along nicely with my new “positive thinking” way of mind.
Oh you’re just dying to know about my weekend aren’t you? Well… fine then.
On Friday my comedy troupe went on a little comedy field trip to Fort Worth to one of my favorite places in all the land, Four Day Weekend. If you live even remotely in the area you need to go and check out this amazing improv troupe. It was kind of weird. I hadn’t been back there in about 3 years, but that’s where I started out trying out this comedy business (holy shit it’s been a long time) nearly 8 years ago. I was quite the awkward performer back then… Not that I’m not sometimes now… but wow.
I think I can owe a lot to those awkward years though. I learned to put myself in uncomfortable experiences, to spend time and group-think with people I didn’t know, and nearly every week after class I learned to really, really enjoy going to the movies by myself.
Saturday, after a grueling day of house hunting, LA and I treated ourselves to a night out at a Bob Schneider concert. I drank too much and did a few foolish things that I will choose not to remember, but overall, it was a pretty kick-ass time.
And if you do not yet know the glory that is Bob Schneider, do yourselves a favor and check him out.
Plus we saw a dude that looked exactly like a young version of Bob Ross. (RIP) I spent nearly 30 minutes contemplating how long it took him to prepare his hair, and it is still on my mind so now I’m all full of regrets for not asking him about it.
Is it just me, or does just thinking of that guy calm your soul?
The only other person in the world who can induce such a state of tranquility to my crazy brain…
Ahhh… yeah, Levar Burton. That’s what I’m talking about. Throw in a few candles, some string cheese, some good tunes, a bottle of wine- and I’m straight-up in my happy place.
