Currently I'm...

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Currently I'm chugging coffee because I'm tired.

This week has been a whirlwind of busy days and late nights. Last night we had another volleyball game on North Avenue beach. I'm happy to report our team won all three games. Naturally we had to celebrate our victories (and Andy's bday) after the game with drinks. 

And after about a three week break from stand-up, I'm currently getting obsessed with it again. I wish I wasn't. I wish I could just quit it and walk away all together and think, that was fun I'm glad I gave it a try. But for whatever sick reason I enjoy doing it. Writing new jokes absolutely torments me, waiting at bars for an open mic to start drives me nuts, but there's just something about telling a joke for thirty seconds that gets a few laughs that is addicting as hell.


I can tell by that dumb look on my face this was probably during my Rainbow Bright joke...

Anyway, I've also got some fun new projects and new shows coming up here in the next few weeks that I'm really excited about. When I know more details I'll share more about them (because I know you all are dying to know... obviously.)

I've also currently been working in Wicker Park quite a bit lately. I don't spend enough time in this neighborhood. So when I do, I feel it's necessary to take photos of the buildings, because I'm just a loser like that.


I also like to photograph the inside of Walgreens. Because c'mon! Look at this Walgreens. There is a sushi bar, yogurt bar, and wine bar. The Walgreens I grew up by had a sandwich bar. And by that I mean it had a refrigerated section where you could buy Lunchables. That being said, I'm still not sure I'd like to sit down at Walgreens and order a spicy tuna roll.


Currently I'm also hating Comcast. (Like everyone else.) Yesterday I was on hold for 25 minutes until a recording picked up and said "We're sorry, our system cannot take your call at the moment. Please call back." And then they HUNG UP ON ME. That's the most defeating feeling ever. You can't put someone on hold, just to hang up on them later. You just can't.

And so I wrote this article for The Whiskey Journal called "Comcast Call Center Revealed To Be A Room Full Of Ferrets." Read it, share it, let's bring Comcast down together, one satirical article at a time.

And that's what I'm currently doing.

  3. So Comcast is indeed a total nightmare, I dumped them when I moved most recently but in the past, I've complained on Twitter tagging @Comcast and @ComcastCares (which let's be honest, they DO NOT) and I get a response almost immediately and they always help. I ended up with years of free services and managers calling me to apologize. Good luck!

  5. But I have Brighthouse and I have similar feelings towards them so I would like to please bring them down as well. Like why does canceling cable, but keeping internet, only bring my bill down $10/month. WHY? HOW?

  11. Lol! Your "breaking news" article made my day. I'm so glad I don't have Comcast. And I agree, even if it is super fancy, I'd have to do some serious thinking before eating Walgreens sushi.

  15. I'd like to know what place has THAT kind of Walgreens. It can't be in the US.
    P.S. If your team needs a volleyball coach, holler at your girl. It's only what I live and breathe ;)
    P.P.S. I've been told that I should do stand up comedy. But then when I think about, I draw a blank on anything funny to say. So my paranoia of being laughed at when I find myself for a loss of words, really deters me from such a career. Kudos to for having balls, girlfriend.

  23. The office I work at just moved locations and Comcast made our already stressful move absolute hell on earth. So your Comcast article? Genius. Just showed that shit to my boss and he lost it. It all makes sense now - the ferrets are the reason our effing cable, internet, and phones were down for a week.
