Mmmmmmmmmmm, tastes like Improv...

I almost didn't go tonight. Go where? Go to meet some local Improv folks. But then, I read my horoscope, which I put too much stock in:

You have done without it long enough, Pisces. This state of deprivation can't go on. Up till now there's been a certain value in you not having the stuff you've been aching for, but as of now its continued absence would begin to have a soul-shriveling effect. Therefore, on behalf of cosmic forces, I hereby authorize you to take all necessary steps, as long as they're ethical, to get the goodies. You may even resort to the desperate pleading that kids use on their parents to get a beloved treat at the grocery store, including: "I promise to be good," "I'll never ask for anything again," and "I NEED IT!!!!"

So I said to myself, "Self, just go. No matter what happens, it'll be fun."

And as I spake, so did I do, and lo there was much fun to be had.

So I guess I'm playing with a new group now, sorta. :) They've already asked me if I want to be in the show they have on the 30th.

They're fun people (as all improvisers are). The group is relatively new, and the cast is relatively young Improv wise (in terms of experience), but they're all really eager and are doing this because they can. Not to toot my own horn, but I really think I could help them out. It'll be kinda cool to get to flex my fledgling director muscle a little. Now, don't get me wrong, they didn't ask me to 'direct' them, but they said whatever help I wanted to give they'd be willing to take. So I may sit back for a while as more of a constructive commenter instead of performing right away, to give them the feedback they want.

Anyway, I'm jumping way ahead. This is only the first rehearsal I was at. But I'll make the offer to assist however I can, and we'll go from there.

This could be fun. :)

Yes, and...

    So I was at the gym on Thursday when I had my official "You've lost 30 pounds" weigh in, and Theresa (my trainer) got really serious…

    So on a POSITIVE note (which I seem to share so few of recently), I've been seeing a trainer for the last year or so. Twice a week, 30 minutes a…

    I may or may not have just scared off a raccoon that was outside my window with a lightsaber flashlight.
