12/15 A really good day

Today is a good one. Not only is it payday, but we got a nice gift card inside the envelope. This will make my last minute shopping a little easier. I bought most of my Christmas gifts while in the UK, but still have a few more. With the number of relatives I have, it's a wonder everything fits into my SUV.

And as usual, last night's Stand-Up class was fun and informative. Lee is wonderful for teaching us for free. A nice guy. And he really is knowledgeable about the subject. I find I'm eagerly anticipating our performance on 1/4.

We're meeting Sunday instead of next Tuesday, because Tuesday is a special workshop by Jill of CSz Twin Cities. So between now and Sunday I have to tentatively decide what's going to be in my routine. That's the hard part. I know what made the others laugh, but will the audience be made up of the same "type" of people? Probably, since the only ones there will be relatives and friends.

Three of my friends made it into the Minor Leagues. I knew it earlier, but it was announced via the CSz paychecks so it's public. I'm very happy for them, all three deserve it.

It makes me wonder about me. This was the first time I was eligible to be called up, since I just finished 104. Guess I need to ask Dick or Dave what I need to work on. I also wonder if my age is an issue. We'll see.

Jer, Just keep on keeping on and the rest will fall into place. I would like to hear more about the stand up class. We have lots of open mike stand up nights here. If you want to come for a visit. . .

Hi, Marta. I just found your blog! Hooray. And thanks for the info. I might just take you up on it. I think the set is good, but it will get better as it becomes refined. This is all new. I sent it to Bron and she loved it, but then she's my friend. :) Later...

You betcha I'll keep you updated, Bron. I probably talk to you during the day as much as anyone--other than my daugher, Jill.

Why not send it to me? I lived and was the moral and otherwise support of a stand up. It's too bad he stopped because he had talant.

Hi Marta. I don't know why I don't receive an email telling me you've posted. I do for everyone else. Odd. Anyway, sure I'll send it to you--it's not refined yet, but the jokes are pretty much there. Will send it today. Thanks. Jer
