I did some weeding in the yard today! Heck, I even... [insert fanfare here] rode my bike!

I took P along on the cellphone, and gave him a running (biking?) commentary on where I was in the park, what was new and what was the same as when he lived up here eight years ago. I even took the time to stop and smell the roses :)

So, yes, I'm feeling a WHOLE lot better.



I was in a blue funk until the show went up last night. Then everything changed.

Last night's show was fabulous and a whole lotta fun.

Fearless Leader even sent me a note last night to say how amazing he thought I was. That was unexpected and really very nice :)

Too bad we outnumbered the paying audience again. *sigh*

After the show, we all went out for margaritas. I made it an early evening, and spent several hours chatting with P.

P claims to be a theatre patron and not an actor, but his delivery is impeccible.

"I know you're scared, honey, about the future and everything, and that's OK. Sometimes, I'm scared, too."
*beat*
"Wait-- no, I take that back. I'm not scared at all. Sorry, honey. It's still OK, but you're the only scared one."

It's hard to be blue or be scared when you're laughing.



"Feeding the straight line is a wonderful thing, but getting the laugh is God's own gift" --Mary Tyler Moore

I don't watch much TV (I don't even have cable), but tonight I watched this cheesy clip show The Great Women of Television Comedy.

That's me. That's what I want to do.

Don't get me wrong. I love business. Not everybody can work their way from Secretary to (almost) VP, and I'm thankful for the abilities and acumen God gave me, and the opportunity to see every day as one more class in a lifetime of learning .

And I love "serious" acting. I'm just crazy about Shakespeare, in particular.

But making people laugh is... well, it's orgasmic, fulfilling, divine.

When I was a fat insecure unloved girl, I'd have given anything to have been able to stop people from laughing at me.

Now, twenty years later-- secure, loved, successful-- I'm honing my skills so that people will laugh at me.

There is nothing like making people laugh.

I want to make people laugh.

It's hard to be blue or be scared when you're laughing.

I'm feeling all kinds of: funny, isn't it?

You know I'm kidding and serious when I say this: you, me, comedy team.
