freedom dancing. shake it.

Ever since I abruptly stopped being shitty, in addition to writing more and creating more art, I’ve been dancing more. I rearranged my apartment on Saturday to make it more dance-party friendly. I’m considering an impromptu New Year’s Eve Party.

I do live in Times Square, after all.

Any girl who does not love Nicki either a) is a die-hard Lil Kim fan (respect) or, sadly b) a sucker fool.

There are woman around the world, a majority, in fact, that are insanely oppressed. They can’t drive a car or pursue a certain type of career. In extreme cases, they can’t even walk down the street without being attacked.

A lot of woman in liberated countries do not have any idea how fortunate they really are. Anyways. All that’s heavy for a Monday morning.

Go shake your ass blog family… stay blessed. Spread it.

The boys al-ways spendin all their money on love.

 

holding up. standing up.

Yesterday I was visited by one of my favorite people, president of our cult board – David.

Since I still can’t walk at the moment, I have been very spoiled with visitors coming to check in on me this week.

David and I giggled and gabbled, clanked wine glasses, and generally loved each other. Then we started talking about the pile of notebooks I am still due to go through. Our general consensus?

“Damn. That’s a lot of books.”

Buried in the pile I found an old joke book that I filled sometime during my nine year Australian excursion.

And you know what blog family? Some of the jokes are pretty funny…

From 2001 – 2002 I was doing sets two or three times a week. My favorite place remains Comic Strip Live, probably because that’s where I took my first comedy writing course. Also because it’s the home of D.F. Sweedler who is another one of my favorite people, though it has been too long between catch-ups.

There’s an open mic at Comic Strip tomorrow. I’m not sure if I’ll be ready for that one… but maybe I’ll be ready for the one that’s on Tuesday. As I continue to settle and feel better, I’m remembering my life ten years ago before I decided to go live another one for a decade. Stand-up was fun… and I reckon I could use a bit more of that.

Exciting stuff blog family!! Today I shall extract five minutes from my joke book and prepare to grab a microphone next week!

Thank you David for listening to my paragraphs of sillies and helping sort out the “Yup keep that one, lose that one… HA! DEFINITELY keep that one!”

… exciting!!
