memorial for a brilliant woman

The best way to prepare for a big show is to alienate and annoy your family.

Works for me anyway- I'm very self-centered right now getting ready for my "FAT LADY SINGS" Sunday night at ComedySportz at 7pm. I'm trying to get the words memorized, work on chords for "Dust in the Wind" - NO NOT THE KANSAS SONG! The one by Todd Rundgren!

It would be so nice to have peace and quiet, maybe meditation time, a hot bath, a cup of tea- instead I have to negotiate (fight) with my son about not having a friend over tomorrow night.

I can only hope it gives me that edge I need to really sing my heart out.

What was that old David Letterman tag line? Something like "I give and I give and I give, and this it thanks I get??"

yeah, that's it.

Come to the show- it'll be great, you'll have a good time- I promise.

Thanks! It was great and I'm repeating it twice more (by popular demand) so I get another opportunity to annoy everybody!
