George Street Playhouse, Bikers, and Your Mom

May 7, 2009

Dear Diary,

     I’m currently listening to my cat Francis howling in the kitchen. She inexplicably cries by herself pretty frequently. If she were a human, she’d be the crazy person in the corner with the smelly hair and the flower-printed top. But I digress.

Guess what’s coming up soon, Di.

…You guessed correctly. My May 15th Show at George Street. I put up another video recently in promotion of it. You should watch it. Don’t feel silly.

I’ve been doing anything and everything one can do in anticipation of a show. You know, like promoting it, organizing it, rehearsing for it, promoting it some more. This is the first time I’ve ever PUT ON an event. Aside from the apparently annual holiday spectaculars I’ve done with Amanda Duncan. Di, it’s scary! There are surprises at every turn!

But I feel confident in my product. That would be me. (How narcissistic…) But it would also be Kate McKinnon. She is funnier than life. How else can it be said? I don’t know.

Oh! And I now consider myself a biker. My friend Chuck and I take extensive bicycle rides along something called the Henry Hudson Trail. I even got a new seat for my  bum! It’s exhilarating. We look at all the other people DRIVING around and laugh at how UNLUCKY they are and how LUCKY WE are. “Car-ies.” That’s what we call them. You know, when you’re a biker, you’re just better than other people. Hey. It’s who we are. It’s in our blood. We can’t help it. So this Saturday, to seal our pro-status, we’ll go riding for a 3rd time. 

Um…You don’t have to remind me, Di. I can see that this blog is going nowhere fast. I just wanted to hit you up and say hello. Tell you what was going on in MY life.

Lest we not forget the time your entire family was killed in a mass motorcycle accident. I posted a sad face on my Twitter account. AND on Facebook. I think you can at least preTEND to care about my life. Thanks.

So anyway, I can’t wait to see you at the show, Diary. It’s going to be divine.

With a Jovial Wave and a Hair Bounce,

Welcome to my sweet pad!

I have a blog on myspace but it’s been brought to my attention that the world has expanded on the blog front and so should I. So I’ll start by bringing in a few recent blogs from the ol’ myspace in case you’re just joining us, and we’ll go from there. How does that sound? It’ll be nice and easy. I promise.

I’ll cradle you like a parent holding their sleeping child and I’ll bring you out of the car and into the house. Next I’ll put you into your footy pajamas. And you know what? You’re not even going to know what happened. You’ll just wake up warm in your new blog bed, none the wiser. sssshhhh…
