Point Break of the Speed Matrix

Keanu is my Mac. He helps me reach you, Interwebs.

I spent the long holiday weekend looking after Annabelle Blanche while Alaina recharged her “Y’all Battery” in Alabama.  I may or may not have an unhealthy attachment to this little doggie.  As I write this, I realize this is the second post I’ve written about the dog and the said unhealthy attachment.  So yeah. 

Today, like some kind of addict unable to recall the steps that led them to that crack house, that bar, that corner… I found myself already three pages deep into the Washington Humane Society website looking for a dog to adopt… and there I found Betty Boo.  She has one black eye!  Do you see that?!  All cool, mischevious-but-with-a-heart-of-gold-dogs in the movies have one black eye!  Like Petey from the Little Rascals

I know that there are other huge factors to consider before adopting an animal but right now the divinely placed impish black eye renders all other criteria moot. 

This is Betty Boo. She's 9 months old and will grow to be ~ 45lbs.

Every third Thursday of November marks the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau as set forth by French law.  I buy a bottle every year because I like traditions and French things.  It’s a very light red wine; fermented for only a few weeks before it’s bottled and shipped. Navin Johnson would love this stuff.  It’s the “fresh wine” he so desires.  

If you’ve got no tolerance for booze it’s a nice light alternative.  Eez like a little behbeh wine.

No more facebook, twitter or cool blog theme changes from my work ‘puter.  Sads.  We had a good run, Internet.  I can still access this blog during the work day but I imagine it’s only a matter of time before they take that away too. 

I feel like Chunk trying to get that last bite of ice cream before the Fratelli’s snatch it all away.

But I am resourceful, Keanu shall wait for my use at home and I will figure out how to do mobile situations and the like.

Seasonal Disorder 2008 Playbill

This Thursday night at 8pm Washington Improv Theater (“WIT”) kicks off its annual holiday themed run of shows beginning with a sneak preview of ONESIXTYONE’s “Seasonal Disorder“.  The preview is open to a general audience and the price is “pay what you can”.  Tickets will be priced at $15 for each subsequent performance except for OPENING NIGHT this Friday.

For $25, OPENING NIGHT includes a talkback with cast and director after the show, a wine-and-cheese reception, backstage tour, and admission to the 9:30PM iMusical performance.

Seasonal Disorder is made up of DC’s most talented and SEASONED long form improvisors and me.   Collectively, we have about 114 years of improv training and  performance between us and can list Second City, Improv Olympic and Upright Citizens Brigade as places we’ve passed in cabs.  Just kidding!  Cabs are for millionaires!

Tickets will go fast so click the links above to get tickets.  All of WIT’s ensembles are performing in the run with new shows of their own.  I will also be performing with my gloroius team Season Six on Saturday nights.   We have a dynamite format and two new players to show off. 

WIT’s run begins November 19th and ends on January 2nd.  Click here for a full schedule of shows.

WIT performs at Source located conveniently between Cafe St. Ex and Bar Pilar on 14th St. & T St. NW.

The only thing that made staying in on Friday night bearable was being home to see my dear friend Dan‘s appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  He was cast as the “groom” for a bit they filmed on Friday the 13th.  He really sold “surprised groom”.  I cried and that ain’t just the Hydrocodone talking… maybe whispering.  His appearance was brief but the camera stayed on him long enough for all of us cheering at home to get a glimpse of that money maker mug.  WIT and DC’s loss is truly New York City’s gain.  We miss you buddy and can’t wait to see more!

Thank you for entertaining my shenanigans as I come out of my post-op pain killer stupor.  It’s been well over 48 hours since my surgery and according to my release form I can attempt to eat solid foods now.  Ummmm…. no ma’am.  I haven’t really been in any pain and I’d like to keep it that way.  Call me a snore but gambling on the physical integrity and comfort level of my jawbone is not what I’m about.   So you can keep your T-bones, your French baguettes, your hard shell tacos, your peanut brittle… your… your… other other foods that require an adult set of molars to breakdown!  What I am about is Easy Mac.

That crap is delicious.  In less time than it takes for me to find my take-out menus on 2 Hydrocodone, I can slap together a bowl of cheesy pasta so soft, I eat it with my big girl cereal spoon.

Yeah, I take bit bites with my big girl cereal spoon!   Yeah, I swallow it whole.  Yeah, it’s soft!  Yeah, it fills me up!  Yeah, sometimes I have pudding after if I’m not too full and there’s some in the fridge! What!

So as you can just chew on that, Internet!  Uh, sorry.  I think the meds and being cooped up for days in my apartment have made me oddly aggressive.

Have a lovely weekend,
