Bit of a shambles…

8 Feb

that million penguins experiment. And I’m probably one of its more generous observers.

But in other news, I screwed my courage to the sticking post, registered for raw comedy and last night won my heat. I then enjoyed a most excellent glass of wine as well as the opportunity to gaze upon this man again (and yes, the curl of his lashes more than compensates for the odd twist to his smile) then sensibly came home to enjoy a cup of tea and late night conversation with my babysitting dad rather than staying out and starting on the mango daquiris.

    Oh that is extremely brave! I wish that I could have gone along to watch.

    Wow, I’m impressed if you’re able to be funny on tap in public. One of America’s quasi-celeb bloggers, Jason Mulgrew, started out as a stand-up comedian but found it too daunting and switched to blogging.

    Did I make it onto the podcast? If I knew how to check and/or had the bandwidth left for this month’s broadband cycle, I’d let you know. If you do listen to it, you’ll be able to recognise me. I’m the slightly older person talking about a messy house.

    Onya, ThirdCat!

    I did Raw Comedy years ago when I started standup, but unfortunately was doing an eyes-closed impression when the warning light went, thus failed to realised that I needed to end the routine one joke earlier than planned, therefore was disqualified for going over time. It was a mild consolation that the audience were very upset for me, as I’d made ’em laff.

    Best of luck for the next round! (and email me if you want any inside info)

    Wowee! I can’t imagine anything more terrifying than trying to be funny on cue. Actually, I’m not sure I’ve even mastered the spontaneously funny thing, though there was this one time I said something… well anyway, well done Thirdcat!

    *stands and applauds*

    I don’t think they’ve podcast you (yet). They only have the Vic heat and then all the other podcasts are from last year’s RAW. I’m going to keep checking, though!

    Holy crapoly! That’s fantastic — as a two time loser at Raw (2004 *and* 2006) I can only let my jaw thump the key board in awe…nicely done…

    Wow. Good on you! And good on you for staying off the daquiris, too …

    Well done thirdcat! (applauding wildly)

    And I have to ask, as no one else has, did Lover turn into the mister?

  11. ThirdCat February 10, 2007 at 5:07 pm #

    Oh, I see what you mean. Yeah, they’re one and the same man.

  12. Ariel February 14, 2007 at 3:00 pm #

    Oh, that’s good. I was imagining a wild affair and thought you were bravely resisting rekindling it. And yes, I was surprised about the imaginary wild affair. (Oh dear, see what no sleep and much adrenalin does to a person?!)

    Don’t forget to let us know when the podcast is available
    Or when you go on national tour.

    A wild affair would surprise no one more than it would surprise me.
