I flew into Minneapolis yesterday with the bare minimum of my traditionally awful travel karma (the flight was delayed on the tarmac for an hour because of a tornado warning, and that was fine because all things considered I’d rather not have any plane I’m on lift off into a whirling vortex of wind), and then trucked out to my friend Neil’s house, where we had a very relaxing afternoon and evening filled with conversation, food, dogs and bees. In short, I had quite a lovely day.
Today: well, in a few hours I hop into my car and head to the Guthrie Theater to get ready for w00tstock, at which I am a special guest at tonight’s performance, or, as I like to say, I’m the Charo of this particular Love Boat. My performance piece is written and ready to go, and I won’t tell you all anything about it, except that the phrase “nacho cheese gravel” is in it. Beyond that I suspect everything is best left unrevealed until tonight.
That said, I’m really looking forward to sharing it; it’s not every day you get to get debut a whole new piece of writing to a live audience, and I think this will be fun and will also fit right in with the whole w00tstock thing. It’s going to be a fun night.
Also, once again, this is pretty much it for me today; lots of stuff to do out here in the real world, so I’m going to get to it. See you tomorrow.
