Forgive me, but I don't have time to write a proper post today. I have to put the finishing touches on a speech and I really want to knock this one out of the park; this will probably be the largest audience I've spoken to yet. Plus, I'm leaving for Albany tomorrow and have to do all that's associated with a 10-day trip to a place where God knows what the weather will actually be. And oh, yeah... those pesky taxes still need to be completed.
Remember how I used to get blotches all over my neck every time I did stand-up? They're baa-aack. By tomorrow afternoon I'll have it all behind me; I can't wait till the flight attendant hands me that first cocktail. Yes, I said "first." (I have drink coupons, too--yay!)
I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone in Albany. Sunday is beautiful granddaughter Hazel's first birthday! Can you believe it?
All together now: Aaawwww!
I can't wait to get my hands on her--I bet she's grown a lot since I last saw her in January.
Hey, for those of you in the Albany area, I'll be doing a set Saturday night at Duke's Pub in Glenmont. Show starts at 8:30. The Albany comics are a great bunch and my buddy Dave Kanyan runs a fun stage. Hope you can make it!
And if you're in Vegas, why not stop by the Stephens Press cocktail party tonight to celebrate the launch of the Las Vegas Writers Conference? It's at 7:00 at Sam's Town in the Virginia City conference room. It's free and open to the public and, um... you'll recognize one of the speakers. Fingers crossed that I do well!
I'll let you know how it goes. And there's another blotch...
