wow , i've been gone for a while. i must apologize for my absence .
two major hollidays have gone by , and i didn't say a thing, how rude. not one thank you from me !! - for a wonderful year. not one thank you !! to all the nice people who supported me through this ordeal. how horrible.... i feel awful no christmas blessings from me, uncool . like the last blog , i "let the lawn get too high" again, and really freaked out..
well , let's get back to it..
here's what went on ... i'm still in a mild funk about the future. Not as bad as before , but worried about the planet.
i did a few shows since the last blog. the night before thanksgiving, the worst night for "surprise comedy", did a set in a little place . the night before thanksgiving , people want to P A R T Y !! woooooooooooooooo!! , not listen to some weirdo like me, or some other comics.. so i kind of got into a little tussle , while on stage with some people who just wouldn't shut up. i asked them to leave, and they did .. the funniest part of my set was otto's motto ......
be nice to as many people as you can ,
as often as you can ,
it's absolutely free -
I'll be nice to you - and you'll be nice to me ..
and just like " tag"
we can start tonight,
and tomorrow will be a better world...
unless you were the assholes who i asked to leave ..
Rapper sung a song about my concussions at the october Funhouse,, it was very true & funny.. a few weeks later, me , rapper, Heather, my Dad & Lee, got together and my Dad mentioned to Heather how i had hit my head "a few times" . Each thing he said was almost a direct line from Rapper's song.. one after another - With the "capper" Dad says "that's why he doesn't think right"... The 3 of us giggled really hard , and Dad asked what's so funny ? We told him about the song , and everyone laughed really hard.... yay !! head injury happiness
for 11 years I've performed at The North Side News X-mas Party, every dec 23rd @ 10 :30 .. last year ( 2012) i pussed out.. i was still in full "battle cancer" mode. That December i felt great, but was still mentally screwed to pieces. i was super happy JUST to be there , alive & feeling well . i didn't need any stress from a show where no one gives a crap if i'm doing it or not. That's what made The N S N set a challenge , and fun to do every year.. So this year (2013) i was ready.. i explained why i weenied out in 2102, and gave the great news from june - "No evidence of disease" . the crowd actually listened ,, for a bit,, i kept it really short , and had a great time ..
did a show on saturday night december 28th - Poor Man's New years Eve.. In a a Chinese Resturant. it also was a benefit show for another cancer patient. the place was packed , and everyone had a blast.. A young gal, maybe 9 , came up to me after and said - " I just want you to know you were hilarious" .. wow , what a great feeling !!!
New years eve -- i've done this for years now ..... just before midnight - 11:57 , i stepped out on the porch , and waited for the gun fire .. pow !!
11:58 ,, oh my !! , 11 :59.. oh yeah -- here it comes . midnight .. BOOM !! chirrrrakkka !!! pow pow pow pow pow pow pow ..for 8 solid minutes.. sounded like a war was going on. oh big city life
ok, 2013 ,, is done,, all behind,, a great year
so i should have blogged , but i didn't.. i just didn't feel like it.. it had been really long 40 + days,, i just had nothing to say really..
the snow storm--- i loved it, i did loose 2 days of work, but i really liked it .. we had food, we were ready, i did go to Costco the day before the storm. Its was strange.. blank pallets , empty boxes every where.. surreal . the snow blower made digging out a snap. no pipes froze when the Artic Blast followed.. all is good
i twisted my mind up by not blogging,, i'll do it tomorrow, yeah right,,
i still am thinking of the wrong things too much. i should be overjoyed just to be here, i'm so blessed. super lucky too.........
ok , that's the catch-up ..
attitude coming back to the surface
strength even better , increased all exercise #'s
what put me in the funk the most is i have realized that my life is WAY different than i thought it was gonna be..
more on that soon ..........
and i sincerely thank everyone for all the help.. it's been 18 months.
i auditioned for America's Got Talent online.. i figured if they didn't want me online, they wouldn't want me doing the same 3 minutes in person either.. and i won't have to be in the convention center for 28 hours, with 25,000 other superstars
