  1. Come On Out And ...

    Friday, May 18, 2018

    Hello, readers.  Come out and see me sometime. 

    On Saturday, May 26, 2018, I’ll be part of the Funny Underground Comedy Show at Broadway Comedy Club.  Arrive at 6:30 for seating and ordering drinks (plus I heard it might start a little early even though it is advertised as starting at 7pm).  On-line tickets are a bit more economical than at the door.  However, there’s a possibility for a two-for-one deal if you buy a full price ticket.  People who want to take someone out for a fun evening, this is a good deal.  2 drink minimum.

    I hope to hear your laughter.  The weather is … well, I never really know, 
    but it isn’t winter.  That should encourage you to come out for some funny.

    Behind the scenes:  I sat at a meeting for two hours in an air-conditioned room and was then sick for over a week.

    I’m getting observed in my math class next Wednesday which makes me 
    feel sooooo uncomfortable.  The way I get through it is by pretending it isn’t happening.  I remind myself that if I’m going to get disapproved of, let it be for who I really am and not for trying to please the observer.  I have to remind myself that my students are my true boss.  If they are feeling comfortable, accepted, appreciated, nurtured, and are learning, I don’t want to worry about administrators.  But it’s not always easy. 

    I typically do better with students than with administrators.  
    Administrators are often pressured with demands from funders that aren’t typically in sync with what works for me and my students.  Plus there are often the latest trends which I typically don’t jump into.  I like to learn about newer ideas, but I consider it a choice what to implement.  I don’t toss out everything old because, to me, old does not mean bad.   As many of you know, thinking for yourself is not approved of in many parts of society (jobs especially).

    I’m glad that the warmer season is here (even if it isn’t acting normal). 
    look forward to the beach.  

    However, I’m still very disappointed that varicose veins are not yet in style.

      Thanks Mindy! Maybe we can start a varicose veins beach club!

    2. LOL varicose veins and style are not friends. Oh well we make do! I'm happy you're better. The weather is definitely not helping. I'll be in Florida visiting my dad on May 26th . So will lookout for next gig. Check out Jessica Jones (netflix). She's embodies part of your personality and looks like you in your youth, as I imagine you were.

    3. Thank you, Lisa and Lia, for taking the time to read and comment. I'm open to the idea of a veiny club. Lia, at times I wonder how we can look at tattooed up bodies and not be grossed out, but bulging veins and spider veins are seen with disgust. I'm trying to be okay with it, but it is hard. I most definitely will check out Jessica Jones. Thank you. By the way, in many ways, I'm still in my youth. :-)

    4. Welcome! Yes,in many ways so am I LOL

      Many thanks for inviting me, Mindy! With the two drink minimum, I'm assuming this event is for the 21 and older set. I've checked the comedy clubs site and couldn't find any info about it. Am I right, or will they allow 18-20 year olds but mark the back of their hand with an X?

    6. Kerstin, I think you assumed right -- 21+.

      Oh well. My son and I will be there in spirit cheering you on. Hope you two get to meet one day.

      Do your best and have fun up there, Mindy, M!
