Sorry for the lack of updates. Last weekend was the Kansas City Improv Festival. My old sketch group Der Monkenpickel performed. We had all 5 of us there, as opposed to last year when only 4/5 made it. The shows were incredibly fun, the festival organizers were amazingly gracious, the crowds were terrificly responsive and the after parties were drunkenly great. I was able to hit up three of my favorite KC food spots: Gates BBQ, Minsky's Pizza and Taco Via. And best of all, I spent the weekend with four great old friends and we were lucky enough to relive some old times as we even dusted off one of our old sketches, and performed it as a sort of coda to our final show Saturday night.
In the meantime, there are just about two weeks for me to yell at my television when the John McCain campaign makes ludicrous claims and tries to divert the public's attention from the actual issues. Probably because they don't have any real solutions. It's how a 9-year old argues.
Only two weeks because that's when we leave for Spain. I'm curious to see how these political shenanigans are received in Europe.
