Some Holiday Giving Options

I compiled a list of three holiday gift drives for my office, but why limit it to that setting? In case you’re looking to help someone out this holiday season, here are some avenues to do that:   Option 1: The Ali Forney Center Mission Statement: Our Mission is to protect LGBTQ youths from the Read More …

A Deeper Love

Last Friday, I was poking around in some old emails when a thought struck me. After some frantic advanced searching, an old flight itinerary confirmed my suspicion: it was the anniversary of my one-way flight into New York City, and life as I now know it, eight years ago. Two days before the somber remembrances Read More …

Let’s Play a Game

Sometimes I feel like I just want to murder something for like ten minutes. I don’t mean literally killing anything or even perpetrating violence upon anyone or thing, but being very proficient at something in a measurable way. What satisfies this craving is this website: http://www.keybr.com/ It’s…it’s typing practice. But there is something comforting about Read More …

A Burden of Duty

To anyone who has had to sit through a conversation with me that started “I’m reading this book that takes place in turn-of-the-century Chicago…” the nightmare is over. I finally finished Sister Carrie and I will probably do less talking about it. I have never been especially patient when it comes to books and typically Read More …

The Flip Side: 5/4-5/10

Things on the training front were slow, partially because I ran a marathon and partially because I pulled some muscles not running that marathon, but doing improv timidly.   I’ve never felt especially comfortable doing improv and over time, I’ve tried to figure out why that is. I’m not even sure how well it can Read More …

The Flip Side – 4/24-5/3

I lapsed as much on Training Scorecard as I did here, but I am here to at least partially rectify this. In the last week and a half or so “Other” has been quite a few things which I will try to recap without being super boring.   Saturday’s show was awful and I have Read More …

The Flip Side – 4/23

I spent a lot of the day sleeping and a portion of the waking part thinking I should do some sort of a workout and then the rest of the waking part preparing for a show I had.   Okay, so before you start with the fact that I should have known better, I’m going Read More …

The Flip Side – 4/22

This was not the best day for training, but you can read more about that somewhere else. I thought it was probably not the worst thing, because I had a lot of writing I wanted to do on Friday. What I *should* have done was prepare for Saturday’s show and/or write a new sketch for Read More …

The Flip Side – 4/21

Last month I did a storytelling show that my friend Liz produces with her cousin Tim every third Thursday of the month. This month, friends and fellow Falawful members Jocey and Ed told stories as part of Liz’s team. They were fantastic stories!   The show theme was Awakening. Jocey recounted how she wrecked her grandmother’s classic Read More …
