The First 25th: Merry Christmas (and Happy New Year, a few weeks late)!
Well, the first of the 15 25s has passed. It was Christmas, and in my family, it was a three-day affair, so it was definitely celebrated. The pre-show involved a lot of decorating (the tree, presents, cookies, my feet):
The main event involved a lot of destroying (presents, food, my ego in Nok hockey):
And I rang in the new year with friends.
I had the whole week off (huge job perk), which I used to both be productive in cleaning and organizing and lay around on my couch binge-watching Netflix. It was a pretty good break, and I feel like the celebration of the 25th stretched well into the new year.
And then I got sick.
Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, I wasn’t really able to take a sick day, so I went to work (but didn’t do much else). Last week was kind of a haze and I’m only just now starting to feel like my head isn’t clouded in a fog of sickness. Hence the lack of posts.
But there are some exciting things coming up in 2016, including four improv shows starting at the end of the month, and a reading this weekend. If you’re in the Twin Cities, head on over to Honey in NE Minneapolis at 7 PM on Sunday, where I’ll be part of a stellar line-up of readers, including Kao Kalia Yang, whose The Latehomecomer is definitely worth a read.
And you’re invited to HUGE Improv Theater Jan. 31, Feb. 7 and Feb. 14. You can be my Valentine! My group, Contraband, will be performing as part of Improv A-Go-Go, which is pay what you want and features five groups every Sunday starting at 8. Check us out, and look for my next post, where I reveal this year’s theme. Get. Excited.
