Busy day back at work. I had over 250 emails waiting for me. Subway for dinner then spent the evening reading.
Still catching up at work. Wendy’s for dinner. Saw a kid get hit by a car on the way home. Stopped. He was okay. Still very upsetting to see that happen.
Finally starting to feel like I’m getting caught up. Open Mic Night at Helium. Not the best mic, only 10 people in the crowd. 20 comics.
Did open mic at Hey Guys. Not much better. Only 4 people in the crowd. 13 comics.
Slow day at work. Uneventful day. It rained almost all week and more is expected this weekend. After the rain all last week in TN too, I’m ready for some sunshine.
Sunday the 16th
- It’s Easter. Also would have been my dad’s 76th birthday.
- Finished reading Comedy On The Edge. Going to read Alec Baldwin’s new memoir next.
- I’m off this week for vacation.
Packed and got on the road early Monday morning headed to Tennessee.
Started writing in a journal on Tuesday, something I haven’t done in years.
Visited Dad’s grave on Wednesday. I noticed the cemetery had lots of dead grass so I bought 5 lbs. of grass seed and reseeded the grave yard.
My birthday was Thursday. Mom cooked spaghetti for me and had a DQ ice cream cake for me.
Finished the Baldwin memoir on Friday and started reading Mary Higgins Clark’s very first book called Where Are The Children?.
Went to the lake with the family on Saturday for dinner.
On Sunday we stopped back by the cemetery after lunch; my grass had started to come up thanks to it raining all week. It was also cold most of the week. I was back home in St. Louis by 7pm.
Started watching a new series called Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix starring Drew Barrymore.
Skipped open mic since inventory is Wednesday and I have to go in early.
We had inventory this week at work which made for a long day on Wednesday which was the first day of counting. Finished watching Santa Clarita.
Inventory was over by 10am. Went to open mic at Hey Guys. There was a great crowd and I ended up having a great set. Got offered a feature spot for two shows on May 6th.
Left work early today. Slow day. I’m on vacation next week and am headed to Tennessee for a week with the family.
Finished watching the entire season of The Returned on Netflix only to discover it was canceled on A&E in 2015 and never renewed so there was no finale!!!
- Slow day at work.
- Watched the premiere of iZombie which we had missed earlier in the week.
- Also finished Louis C.K.’s new Netflix special.
Didn’t make the list at open mic so I came home and we watched two more episodes of The Returned on Netflix.
Watched one more episode of The Returned before I had to leave for the Helium show. We had a smaller audience this time but still just as good. I found out when I got there they were letting me do 8 minutes. I had a solid set and was happy with it.
- Made breakfast.
- Did laundry.
- Finished reading “I’m Dying Up Here.”
- Grocery shopped.
- Started watching the third season of Frankie and Grace.
- Watched Walking Dead.
- Had lunch with a coworker who is retiring on Friday.
- Started reading Comedy at the Edge, another book about the rise of comedy in the 70’s.
- Watched more of Frankie and Grace.
- Was awake at 4am just lying there, but then Mario got us up at 5am anyway.
- Packed for the Orlando trip.
- Finished Frankie and Grace.
Flew to Orlando for work on Wednesday. The trade show was that afternoon for 3 hours. Went to dinner with a vendor that night. The show was all day Thursday. Packed up that night. Flew back Friday afternoon.
