6/29 I'm a dork, I know

But I'm so excited. Just got a copy of an ad that's going to run in The Onion. And it's the first time I'm in a newspaper ad for doing stand-up. Yep, I'm a late bloomer.

I've been so busy at work today that I didn't get to post during lunchtime, so am taking a few minutes now.

We're getting ready for our international conference which runs from 7/30-8/4. My birthday lands smack dab in the middle of it, so I'll be able to celebrate a little. Not too much though, because these things are always crazy busy for staff members. They're still fun though. Right after it ends I'll drive to Quincy for a family reunion. The conference is in St. Louis this year, so that's only two hours from home, which is a good deal. I plan on driving to St. Louis instead of flying, so I'll have the flexibility of going to Quincy immediately.

Not working at ComedySportz this weekend, but I have something fun to do both Saturday and Sunday, so it should be a good weekend. Summerfest is going on at the lakefront. It's the biggest music festival in the world. I have two free tickets (our owner gives them to us every year). But don't know if I'm going to go. We'll see.

For right now, I need to finish up here so I can get home. Have to study--both my stand-up routine and my sketch roles. Need to have the sketches memorized soon.

(Did I tell you I'm in an ad in The Onion?)

I was sure you would come home for Craig (isn't he your godson?) and Megan's shower, but have a great weekend at home. Are they giving you Monday off too? Seems most everyone here is getting it, including Adam who just started working. I am looking forward to the picnics here, then VACATION>>>>who doesn't love VACATION?

I had planned to come home. But when it was cancelled I made other plans on both Saturday and Sunday. I have to work Monday.

Then by the time the shower was on again, I couldn't rearrange things. Sunday we have a long rehearsal for BroadMinded. So I'm really sad to not make the shower. Oh crap, I just remembered I forgot to ship my gift. Damn. Oh, I guess I'll just have to send it to their house in Ohio.

Well you are more in the loop than I am, b/c I didn't know it was cancelled....have great weekend...sounds like you will be busy. I am sure they would appreciate having it come to the door, as opposed to trying to get them and the gifts home after this weekend...maybe they will get all small things ;o)
