Last night I did a set at the Comedy Studio(in Cambridge) and tried out new material that was mainly stories.
After the show I went downstairs to the bar with friends and the Patriots game was playing.
It brought a cool energy to the room.
I ended up missing the moment when the Patriots actually won because I was too busy yapping away.
So I just took this this picture of other people experiencing the game, who actually saw the winning moment:

I'm not sure what the referee is anouncing on the tv screen
I imagine he is saying something like,
"Hey you guys, they totally won again."

For some reason I can put pictures on my blog again!
Hope you all have/had a wonderful holiday and that you have a great New Year!

I've done some Christmas shopping but am not completely done yet.
My shopping method is:
"power walk through the mall until you see things that catch your eye and seem like you should buy them".
This is very effective.
If there were a job where I could teach a course on this I would apply for it(part time)
I think it would be fun to power walk through a mall with a bunch of people and yell,
"Just grab things! Follow your heart!"
have no one in the mall know what the hell we were doing.

I think it's time for me to stop my sleepytime tea drinking habit.
I had another cup last night and added an extra tea bag
it was very effective again(only this time I didn't have any intense dreams).
What happens if I become too dependant on it and it becomes a problem?
I used 2 tea bags last night...
by next week I could be up to 4 and I could selling things I own on street corners just so I could buy another box.
Then the next thing I know I'm in rehab for my sleepytime tea problem.
I'm sitting in a circle with all of the other rehab people
one by one we announce what has brought us to rehab.
One person says, "Hard core drugs!".
The next person says, "Hard core drinks!"
Then they get to me
I'm clutching an empty sleepytime time box and twitching as I say,
"Sleepytime tea..."
Everyone calls me a pussy
refuses to be my rehab pal
I am left alone in the ping pong room(which I'm sure they have at the rehab building)
playing solitaire ping pong against the wall...

It's as though the tea fairy knew I was coming...
I've been having trouble sleeping at night lately so I went out to buy some chamomile tea as a way to combat that.
When scanning the tea section my attention was caught by a tea called, "Sleepytime Tea".
It had a picture of a bear sleeping in a chair wearing a night gown and night cap.
It boasted of using Valerian root as it's sleeping aid herb.
I was immediately sold and shocked that my original intention was to buy chamomile tea.
Who the hell buys a tea called "Chamomile" that has a boring picture on it's box
when they can buy a tea called "Sleepytime" that has a picture of an adorable bear sleeping on the cover?!
Not me!
I immediately grabbed the tea and ran to the cash register pushing and shoving people out of my way(not really).

The tea works amazing! It made me fall asleep in a short amount of time
I had an intense dream...
I dreamt that I was going to be performing at a college.
Normally when I do a show at a college I do an hour of comedy
that's what I was expecting to do at this show in the dream.
When I got to the venue though there was a huge blinking sign that said,
2 Hours of Val Kappa!?

I immediatey began to panic. I found the person in charge she was wearing a t-shirt that said,
Yes, you have to do 2 hours of comedy. You read the sign right. You have to do 2 hours, Val Kappa. It's the 2 hours of Val Kappa show!"

I walked away from that person and was approached by a guy that was wearing a t-shirt that said,
P.S. You'll be going on after "Heavy -Metal-Drummer-Dude". He'll be doing a 3 hour set of his heavy metal drumming. He usually gets the audience all rialed up and they end up getting into a huge fight. Hopefully your comedy will make them calm down and stop their fighting...

This was when I woke up and was very happy to learn that that was just a dream.
I'm going to drink the tea again tonight and see if I have more intense dreams...

Damn camera!

I'm still unable to put pictures on here from my camera
it's eating away at my soul!
I didn't realize how much I used and relied on my camera.
Hopefully I'm just being an idiot
it's just a matter of pressing a very obvious button
once I do that everything will be back to normal.
Till then I guess I'll just go outside and draw pictures in the dirt with a stick
start shouting for my neighbors to come over and take a look at my dirt sketches.

I've been trying to do some catching up on watching movies that I haven't had the chance to see.
When I was a kid, my Mom would take me and my sister to see a lot of movies at the theatre.
Pretty much all of the movies she took us to see are known as classics today.
For some reason I had a habit of always falling asleep during them though..
I guess I had a bad attention span as a child.
The only thing I never fell asleep through were "I Love Lucy" re-runs.
Anyway, today I'm going to watch "The Last Unicorn":

It's one of the last movies on my "movies that I slept through as a kid" list.
After seeing it today I know that I will be at peace with myself and be able to move on with my life.
