IMPROV, SAN FRANCISCO, and WORLD RECORD

Sup blog readers. Well, it's been over a month--oh well--I guess that just means that I have a lot to tell you. All is well with me. The semester is 2/3 over which I cannot believe. This is my last semester at OCC:( I'll miss the students and the department faculty; it's just time for me to move on. I will be teaching JUST at Saddleback next semester, and it's will be my final semester. I'll be "retiring" if you will in spring of 2012. My new classroom will be the stage. We'll see how that goes I guess. I'm looking for people to help me with promotion, online stuff, etc so if anyone wants to be part of the new comic revolution--let me know. Come on, add some spice to your life.

Let's see--it's been a busy month. I performed a small show (100 awesome peeps) at DiPiazzas--it went well. I'm working on fine tuning things for the December show. Myriam and I are writing a chapbook of stories, poems, one-liners, etc that will be available at the December 14th performance. I also performed to a huge audience at the world famous Improv. Yes I did. It was an amazing experience and I cannot wait to do it again. They want me back of course--perhaps I'll perform there again in November. I might wear the "tool shed" outfit. Only those who were at my show will get that reference. Oh well.

I have kidney stones and they suck. I'm like a walking rock collection.

Happy Birthday to my amazing brother in law AND sister in law. Yasmin and David Gurba are 31. Holla.


List of things one should never leave in a car on a hot day:
1. Half eaten chocolate bar
2. Wax from a babybel cheese snack
I'm sure there are a lot more but those are the ones that came to mind--especially since I left both of those items in my car last week.

Everyone should always carry around a sock puppet. I think it would be very healing. Just think about it and it'll make perfect sense.

I have recently discovered coconut M&Ms. They might just be one of the best sweet treats out there.

I am not a fan of Halloween--I'll be glad when it's over.

Is anyone else sick of the Conrad Murray trial? 

I need white trash ideas for Anne Geddes type photographs. If you have one, please send it my way.

Myriam and I went to San Francisco a few weeks back. We stayed with our dear friends Emily and Animal and it was a super awesome trip. We had so much fun. It had been awhile since we'd been back and it's summer in San francisco so......it was a near perfect trip. Here are some highlights: 
1. Spent $18 in one day for tolls. 
2 Had hell or high watermelon beer with Animal. It was delicious. 
3. Got to see Myriam read at The Lex--she was the Belle of the ball doing her Eazy E impression. I was honored to see her perform her latest stories. The place was so packed that people were turned away at the door. 
4. Had the BEST bacon I'd ever tasted. It was like magic. 
5. Bi-Rite ice cream. (I had salty caramel and cinnamon snickerdoodle) SIGH
6. Zachary's Pizza. 
7. Small dog beach walk with Lillie and Goldie.
8. Bookstores--
9. Took a picture in front of The White Horse Bar which is where we met 13 years ago.
10. San Quentin
11. Trying to find a kinkos in downtown SF
12. Ben Sherman shoes and pants on sale.

Long Beach is trying to break a World Record tonight. They are hoping to hold the largest Zombie walk ever. I think I'll head downtown so I can be a part of history. It would be awesome to be a part of breaking a World Record. That's it for tonight. I'll leave you with my student story of the week:

For my public speaking class everyone must inform the class on a food or beverage or the like. One student decided to do cannibalism which is odd but fine. I was actually looking forward to the speech. Last week he stayed after class to ask me if he could change his topic, I of course asked why. He said that it's because he couldn't find any recipes online and he really wanted to include recipes in his speech. WTF. Recipes.

Alright--I'm off to break a world record. Be back soon. Thanks for reading. I understand that comments are hard to post--many people have said that they have a difficult doing it so all I'll say is: thanks for reading and feel free to comment on FB. I'm learning to TWITTER too.
