so i did some more stand-up on sunday night. i opened for some comedian named elvira kurt. she has a special on comedy central. heard of her? anyway, the room was packed...about 600 people, and i opened with about 10-15 minutes of stuff that i wrote, and the audience laughed a lot. and when i said my time was up, they starting booing. and a bunch of random people told me afterwards that i was funny, and some people have even said that i was funnier than she was. a bunch of people told me that when i opened for colin quinn too, so i guess i'm off to a good start. i even have an agent now, apparently. at least, he's someone with tons of connections who assured me that he can get me paying shows (like...hundreds of dollars a show) at different colleges and the like. getting paid to make people laugh would be awesome. so i think that's what i'm going to do after i graduate. i'll do stand-up for a year, and then i'll still probably move to japan.
went to the Andrew WK/Locust/No Motiv show last weekend, and it was fun. The Locust is incredible live.
Mandie's 21st birthday party was the next day, and i got incredibly drunk. but i saw a lot of kids, and hanging out with Jessie was fun.
was sick for most of the week, so i didn't leave my house for like....5 days? fantastic!
this last saturday, i went to Maine with Mike, Brian, and Jeremiah for a TheatreSports show. Tyler and John went too. our audience was about 40 senior citizens. and they loved us! some little old lady came up to me afterwards and told me i made her laugh so hard her cheeks hurt. then we went to the arcade and i beat X-men again.
sunday was river rave. saw the distillers, my morning jacket, the living end, the darkness, finger eleven, and the offspring. it was fun, but kinda sad, because the distillers, my morning jacket, and the living end didn't play any of my favorite songs. all 3 bands ignored the songs i love. oh well. and we ran into this girl who happened to be a waitress at the place where we did the TheatreSports show the day before. she said that i was amazing, and that i was her idol. then she asked if she could shake my hand. then all her friends wanted to shake my hand. haha. what can i say...i'm an idol to 15 year old girls.
saw Hart todayyy. nerdbag!
wow, i haven't updated in an entire WEEK. i've been busy though. finals are finally done, as well as all papers and projects and group assignments. i only have one semester left. it's kinda scary.
i bought a new computer on friday. it's sooo much better that my old computer, and it was only $300. plus it has office on it, so i finally have Word, and i won't have to spend so much time in the damn computer clusters.
went swimming yesterday with bee, mike, and a few other people who weren't really swimming. the water was cold, but it was fun.
Magic: the Gathering tournaments need to happen soon.
Last night i almost died in my sleep. i guess i must have hit the cord on my lamp, and it fell over onto my bed. the lampshade snapped back, shattering the light bulb, sending fragments all over me, which luckily woke me up. then sparks started shooting out of the broken bulb, and all the sparks were landing on my sheets. this was all happening right in front of my face. after all the sparks stopped flying, this really gross smoke started pouring out of the socket. it was traumatizing. but i cleaned up the mess and went back to sleep. dying on your birthday would suck. unless you were 100.
my mom sent me a birthday card with $70 in it, and i had accidentally thrown it in the trashcan without opening it. luckily i found it before trash day.
my birfffday is almost here! as some of you know, my birthday last year caused the Old Man of the Mountain to fall down. who knows what cultural travesty it will bring this year!
got tickets for the Best Music Poll show in Boston. 17 bands playing. the ones i'm really excited about: the explosion, the lot six, midtown, elefant, the rapture, presidents of the usa, and of course, the violent femmes. should be fun.
my hunger strike was aborted after 61 hours. i have very little willpower.
i never want to dream again
