Crunch Time

Despite some (very) minor glitches, things worked out fairly well for our move. I’m sitting in the “new” place, albeit without much furniture (it’s still being used to stage the place we’re selling). I had a tech rehearsal for my show tonight (It’s really easy – one music and light cue to bring me on stage, one music and light cue to take me offstage)

But now is where it starts to get interesting – next weekend is the first show and I’m starting to panic. And I still need to write some material for the July 4 weekend events. Just determining which nights over the next two weeks I will be in San Diego, Long Beach and Palm Springs has been a challenge.

I’ll come up to breathe July 4. Have a great two weeks…. and come see a show.

Summer Un-vacation

The summer ramped up fast –

We’ll be down in San Diego a few weekends this month to move to a new weekend place and help a new roommate get settled, then suddenly it’s time for my show at the San Diego Fringe Festival, and (overlapping one weekend) the LGBT square dance convention, and before you know it, it’s San Diego Pride (complete with a comedy show and a powerlifting meet for me). Later in July, I’m going to spend a week at the Chautauqua Institute in upstate New York for their “Comedy and the Human Condition” series. ┬áThen it’s time to get ready for Burning Man (we don’t have tickets yet, but we’re still looking – if you know of any leads…..). Somewhere in the middle of all that, I go back to work and I expect at least one trip to Sacramento to meet with my co-workers there.

I think I’ll need a summer vacation after all that.

The reality is they’re all things I love (well maybe not the moving thing), so it will be fine. If you want to try to catch up with me, check the Upcoming Events page. And forgive me if I don’t post much between now and Labor Day.
