I’m like really busy. – said in that annoying girl tone. You know what I’m talking about.
Yesterday Chris and I were walking down Halsted and we passed two girls in their twenties having a conversation about “needing to be alone for once in their life” and they were talking in that voice that girls use now. I call it the Kardashian voice, or the SNL Californian voice, it’s really nasally and you have to say your words very longggg and slowwwwww. Whatever it is, I kind of hate it. I don’t mean to be judgy, but let’s stop this trend right now, okay Chicago gals? We’re better than this. Let’s get back to the long O’s and talking like we’re all Ditka. That’s way classier…
But anyway, back to me thinking I’m busier than everyone else in the world… We all know that’s not true, but I like to pretend I am. That’s why I got such a kick out of this tank from Style Lately.
Too busy to take my hands out of my pockets.
Too busy to look at the camera.
Just too damn busy.
Seriously though, I’ve got a few things coming up I’m really excited about. I’ll be performing with the Sneak Around Bunch for our run of shows at The Second City starting Monday, July 28- September 22nd! (I think, I always get confused on dates.) I’ll be doing another showcase at The Laugh Factory August 7th and 8th thanks to funny man, Chris Bader. And I’ll be telling dick jokes at Just Dicking Around Comedy August 7th in Boystown. So Chicago friends, this is me telling you to come watch! Let’s hang out, it will be fun!
And and and this last one has me really excited. Starting in August I’m going to be co-hosting an open mic at iO’s new building on Kingston street. I’m just so excited to get to be a part of iO again, it was hard when my classes were over and I no longer had a reason to be on that stage. There’s something about that theater that hooks people. And to get to be a part of their first open mic is pretty cool. Of course I’ll be talking about this a lot more in the upcoming weeks, I’m sure it’s going to give me a lot of good blog material.
And to top it all off my parents will be arriving in Chicago in two hours and a street festival will be arriving directly in front of my house in less than twelve. I’m really tempted to set up shop on my stoop and make a few bucks selling lemonade and cookies, but I’m not sure if that’s weird? You know because I’m not ten years old. But that’s never stopped me before, so if you come to Taste Of Lincoln this weekend look for the large woman-child trying to compete with the kids to sell 50cent lemonade, that will be me.
That’s all I’ve got. Have a wonderful weekend! I can’t believe it’s already the last one in July. Where do the summers go?
