If you follow me, you’ve noticed I haven’t given you much to follow in almost two months. I’m going to give you a few excuses, and you will circle the one you will accept with my apology.
- I had a car accident and woke up in the home of a large woman who hit my ankles with a sledgehammer because I retired an old comedy bit. (Okay, we all know I rarely retire anything).
- I’ve been keeping up a secret identity in order to expose the family and/or organization that is responsible for my father’s wrongful imprisonment.
- Been busy, girl.
Regardless of why, I am back, and here’s what I’ve learned in the time since we last spoke.
1. Good clothes DO open doors.
I had an interview for a job in the fashion world. A couple of pals refused to let me dress myself for this job. We all know my sense of fashion is deciding which of my twelve hoodies to wear on any given day. I surrendered.
While Erin decided what I would be wearing on the bottom half, Calen got to work on which tie / shirt / body spray combo screamed, “You’re company will fail without me.”
Aside from the discomfort of a tight…okay, maybe form-fitting…blazer, I felt good. Apparently the clothes made an amazing impression. The jacket later ended up in my trunk, where it was swapped out for a green hoodie.
2. “There’s no drama!” = There’s drama.
This year I kicked off the Mikey & Teddy Comedy Hour at a bar in West Hollywood. A month after it started, we cancelled a show. The following week we resumed the show, but in a different venue.
Having seen our share of tension played out in the back stages of Hollywood and in the public forum of Facebook (yes, apparently grown people still do that), we opted for a platform of “We simply found a more appropriate venue. No drama.”
What that translates to is: “Yes, there was a bunch of drama, we handled it swiftly, and we are focusing on the future. If you aren’t in the know by now, sorry bout it.” Also, we don’t really want to make a public mockery of the situation. I did that in my last break up, after a lot of vodka, and I am still recovering from the shame.
3. I still have no idea what the F#$% happened on Lost.
Seriously. I stopped watching before season 5 started up and decided recently to finish the series. I’m now almost done, and can’t tell you a damn thing other than the guy who played the mysterious Jacob is hot, and I will be his candidate any day. Whatever that means.
love and no drama, girl,
