I don’t know what this is but Steve Jobs tells me I need it for Keanu.  Apparently it has bits of real Snow Leopard in it so you know it’s good.  I will buy it on Friday. 

Let’s hope that, like they say, 60% of the time it works every time.

I am actually thrilled because I will finally get most of my week nights back and my weekends are gonna be.. .well...  FREE and BLAND.   So Amen to that!   I mean who needs someone to talk for hours and laugh with and never get sick of and go on fun road trips and like the same foods and have girl crushes on Elizabeth Hurley with... or talk about fun ideas for Halloween costumes with when Halloween is ONLY six months away... or both say in unison "This is the most fun ever!" because you found a store covered in plastic $3 earrings... or someone who sends you  fun homemade random cards in the mail that just tell you that you are loved... do you know anyone who needs that?  Because I most certainly DO NOT.

My not so close friend Cleve leaves the pinstriped streets of DC for kraut stained alleyways of Chicago on Saturday.  I’m not trying to be bitchy.  That’s just a fact.   She’s cool and all but just another temp drifter in the DC pool.  She’s not special.  I don’t think about her in a weird way like how she might be like the younger sister I always wanted but never had…  what?  That’s so dumb.  And for the record, Internet, I don’t CARE.  I am FINE.  F-to the-I-to the-N-to the-E.  FINE.  Look at me?  Do I care?  Nope.  No.  No ways.  Not here bub.  Pardon?  Wrong number.  Just keep on walkin. ‘ Nothin’ to see here folks.  I’m okay.  You’re okay.    Please people.   You simply don’t know who you’re dealing with here.    I.     AM.     BULLETPROOF.

Pardon? No. I did not purchase the tween phenomenon "Twilight" for my 4 hour bus ride to NYC tomorrow. You must be joking. Really!

And you are out of your banana hammock if you think I also purchased the 2nd book, New Moon, for the bus ride back.  How dare you!

Aparna breaks it DOWN.

Aparna, I am totally stealing your summary of shows because I have a condition that rhymes with sloth…  nope, actually that’s the word.  See?  I was too lazy to think of a word that rhymes with sloth. 

Please check out Aparna’s pictorial breakdown of shows from Improvapalooza 2009 here.  There were so many funny funny moments in so many shows it’s hard to pick a favorite.  So I will just say that the shows that I was in:  Ames Aimes: A Sketch Show, Destination: You!; Population: Fun!; Bad Walken, WIT HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, and Season Six’s  Reunion Show were the best ones.

This weekend Season Six will be performing at the Del Close Marathon in NYC with a number of other WIT troupes, including iMusical of which Curly & Cleveland are members.  I am excited to perform again for a UCB audience.  It’s been a few years… I’m trying not to think about the sitcomesque panic attack I’m going to have before we get on stage.   You know what I mean, a sitcom character, usually the cocky braggart, finds themselves being interviewed for the local news or having to speak to a board room of executives ready to give  the thumbs up or down on their new product based on the smoothness of their presentation… and everything falls to pot.  They’re a deer in headlights or are next seen breathing through a paper bag.  Yeah.  I’m preparing for a meltdown. 

In the meantime, I’m also preparing for a weekend filled with friends, culture and french fries.  Because you’re curious, here’s a few things I have planned for Friday through Monday:

I had just thought of one more place to visit, DTUT.  It was my place of solice when I had just moved to 84th St. with already three months of unemployment under my belt back in 2001.  It took me another three months to get a job.  After looking through the Want Ads in the Times, I would walk across the street to DTUT to get an iced coffee, sit on the couch and read and sometimes check my hotmail at the PAY computer for $1.25 a minute.  No joke.  This was before the boom of laptops and people actually came into the coffee shop to sit and read the paper or whatever book (remember those?) they wanted to finish that week.  DTUT was a true East Coast coffee house before there was a Starbucks on every corner.  I just googled it for an image and I found out it was closed in 2007.  Is nothing sacred?
