No Theme, no real sense of purpose. Just a few things rambling around in my head.
I did some karaoke last weekend at a bowling alley lounge, no less. One of my friends’ and coworkers’ Dad and Mom run a Karaoke night. Her dad mentioned I was a stand-up comedian and was going to give me a chance to do “5 minutes”. I wasn’t really prepared, and another friend started talking to the crowd; giving them hints at my material. (Who wants to hear about MySpace, Midgets, and Mayonnaise?) She “worked” the crowd’s curiosity up; but I declined and offered to come back another week when I was prepared. Some audience members were actually upset that I didn’t perform right then and there. Maybe I should have.
I got a form email from Steve Hofstetter saying he’s going to be doing his “Business of Comedy” seminar in Atlanta, Georgia on May 3rd. I wanna go. The seminar is inexpensive and is chocked full of relevant, useful information. Steve is a top-notch comedian’s comedian and I’m sure I would get lots of “good” from it. I just gotta figure out how to afford the trip. Not just the seminar cost, but gasoline costs, meals, and whether I can make it a one day trip with a tired trip home or a possible hotel stay.
I joined Twitter. I’m not sure why. Do I really want to make little updates of day-to-day activities for my online friends to read? It’s just one more thing to experiment with. Do I want people to follow me on Twitter? Will anybody figure that it’ll be worth following? Who knows; but I am all a twitter. Maybe I’m “twitter-pated” as well. If you wanna see Twitter updates, then they are in my side bar.
I wanna win a Bloggie. Or a Blogger’s Choice award. But, “On The Road With Dave” doesn’t exactly fit into any of the categories to nominate it for consideration–Unless of course it happened to be “greatest blog of all time” or greatest Blog Writer. I envy blogs that I find on the Internet that have the little banner that proclaims they have won the coveted Best Blog award in a particular category. Also the prize money of $20.08 seems to be enticing me.
