Shark Week

Started last night. Now don't be actin' like you're too good to learn about Lemon Sharks. No animal-devoted week in the history of television has ever had a following as devoted as Shark Week. Not even Capybara Week, and they had special guest host Debbie Gibson.

Just kidding - she goes by Deborah Gibson now.

Last week was busy. But I got to see a lot of people I haven't seen in ages. First of all - a lot of the boys I did comedy with in DC are here in NYC now, and we all did a show together on Monday night. It reminded me of how special they all that kind of retarded, but mostly endearing way. And I'm glad they're in town.

And this weekend, I had two friends in from DC whom I haven't seen in years. First was Mark, who used to live across the hall from me in my apartment building in DC. I used to walk across to Mark's place at all hours clutching various bottles of booze and asking him to tell me I'm pretty.

My friend Beth was in town as well, with her boyfriend. Beth and I used to work at the extremely popular ice cream parlor Cone E. Island in DC. Have you heard of it? I'm sure you have, it was mentioned in the GW School paper. Beth and I did our damndest to bring that place down from the inside, one extra scoop of sprinkles at a time. (You call them 'jimmies', and I'll claw your eyes out.)

I've got the first of 3 Crowded House concerts in 6 days this Friday night. I'm trying to decide what would make my special sign to the band stand out from all the others. Should I use glitter, or hot pink highlighter? Would too busy a collage of pictures detract from the message I'm trying to get across? However I decide to decorate, I know it's going to end up looking amazing.

If you're at the concert this Friday night at the Foxwoods Casino in CT and you wanna hang out, just find me in the crowd! I'll be the one holding the sign that says "Give me two fistfuls of your hair."

Thank you thank you thank you! There is no such thing as "jimmies". What idiot decided on that?

Also, I think blood would get across your Crowded House fandom much better than pink highlighter. Adding glitter just makes it that much sweeter. Ah, restraining orders.
