I will break you.

Went skating last night with a few of the other gals interested in doing roller derby. I made the mistake of taking my daughter, who had a miserable time, which then forced me to leave early so she could escape the boredom of watching grown women try to figure out how to keep from falling on their asses every two seconds. Other than that, it was not too bad a time and I even broke a sweat. This isn't too surprising, though, because I break a sweat the moment I begin to do anything physical. Don't know why, just another one of my unfortunate quirks. I did do better than I expected considering I haven't skated since I was a teenager, which was a very long time ago. So, it looks like I'll be continuing on with this new adventure for now.

Speaking of adventures, I'm going to my first ever drag show tonight. I'm kind of excited about it. I just hope it's good. I'm a little bit afraid it won't be real drag queens, just some hairy men wearing their mother's housecoat. That would be incredibly unfortunate.

Life's just a big old party, ain't it?

Man, coming to the end of a very busy few weeks. Today and tomorrow are the last shows in the Little Shop of Horrors run and then it's on to a little bit of down time. I originally thought I'd try out for another show that I'd like to do right away, but I think my daughter's been missing me a bit lately, so I'm going to take a bit of a break and catch up with her. However, that doesn't mean I'm not going to keep the pots going in the meantime. I want to get into planning and brainstorming for the new webshow idea I've got bubbling. Also, one of my friends is working with another girl to try and organize a roller derby team, which I'm all over if it happens. I've even got a name already. At any rate, there's still a lot I want to jump into even if I'm not performing. I figure I'll have plenty of time to sleep when I'm dead.

Slap Hands

It all kind of speaks for itself, now doesn't it?

Time to catch one breath.

We're on a two-day break from the show until we start up this week's run on Wednesday. Once we start back up, we only get one day off until the show ends on March 21. It's all good, though. I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't absolutely love it. The show is going OK so far. We had some sound problems the first couple of days, but I think they were able to level out the mics on Sunday, so it will hopefully be smooth sailing from here on out. As it is, I've already got another webshow idea percolating in the old noggin. I'm hoping to get at least one episode off with the people I'd like to do it with. If we can manage that much, it's a good thing. I don't want to talk about it too much, though, because I'd like to get things more concrete before I get too carried away with it. At any rate, I'm going  to just keep my fingers crossed that we don't run into any "complications" this time around. Here's a picture of me and my friend from the show. We're renaming it The Little Shop of Whores.

All good things must come to an end. Sigh.

Just a video goodbye to everyone who watched and laughed during the short time we were around.

Well, this just sucks.

Due to an incredibly unfortunate set of circumstances, my friend and I have had to pull the plug on KC & Sunshine Boy. Without getting into too much detail that is not mine to openly broadcast, Sunshine Boy has to bow out of the show. I am supremely bummed out about this turn of events. We were having such a good time, and I think we were making people laugh. Maybe I'm deluded in thinking that, but at least we were making ourselves laugh, and that was okay with me. I'd like to think that I'll be able to team up with someone else to continue with some sort of show, but coming up with the idea to do KC & Sunshine Boy with my friend was kind of a serendipitous moment, and those don't come along too often. But, I will not give up the ghost. You just never know who or what will cross your path. I sort of feel like crying right now, but it's not the sort of behavior I normally allow myself to succumb to and it doesn't really change anything. So until KC can walk again, I bid adieu to one hell of a good time that ended way too soon.
