Better Said Than Done Show: Then there was a storytelling show on Saturday night. I told a story I have been working on for over a decade. I think it had about 3 words in common with the version I rehearsed over the phone. It mostly worked, though it isn’t completely where I want it to be. I took out a lot of the gorier details (involving domestic violence, overheard through open windows) and I am not entirely comfortable with that decision. I think what I need is equally disturbing, but more bizarre, examples of things I’ve heard.
But, overall, it was a very good show, with a wide variety of stories.
If you want to hear me live, the next show I am doing is August 15th at the Lake Anne Coffee House in Reston, Virginia. It’s at 7 p.m. and it’s free!
Also, I haven’t posted the video from the previous show here, so, for your watching pleasure:
Knitting Group: Sunday was the first time in ages that I made it to knitting group. I can’t say I made much progress on my sampler afghan. In fact, I made no progress, thanks to a dropped stitch and screwing up fixing it. But there was lots of good conversation, so it was worth it anyway.
A Brief Political Diversion: The controversy over a congressional race a couple of districts southwest of mine has to do with whether or not the Republican candidate is into Bigfoot porn. There’s a part of me that finds this amusing and there is a (bigger) part of me that thinks, "who cares what his kinks are?" Assuming, that is, that Bigfoot is a consenting adult.
