Come see "Guardian" the comedy play by Matthew McLachlan which I directed in the group A show July 20, 22nd, and 28th! Or see "The Voices in My Head" written by Mike Quig and directed by my friend Nick Hudson in the group B show July 21, 27th and 29th! #OBKY #Owensboro #Kentucky http://www.messenger-inquirer.com/news/local/theatre-workshop-of-owensboro-s-summer-shorts-kicks-off-next/article_5f82e632-fc0f-5570-9bed-e133265de35d.html

New post in my Good sexual violence joke/bad sexual violence joke/Right on female comics blog: In which I have mixed feelings about a favorite male comedian's misfire on the subject of the latest entertainment industry sex scandal. (Trigger warning: I use this blog to dissect jokes some people think should not be made at all. Because I believe in free speech as much as I believe in avoiding causing emotional trauma to the audience. I imagine my favorite comedians believe the same.)

It's exciting to be reading Norse myths at the same time as I have found a dedicated D&D group to game with. I'm still not done with my half-elf bard, and this time I made her a merchant magician instead of a ranger. I think that says something about where I am in life, that I threw away all the animal control and survival skills my parents taught me but I still want to travel and influence people. I always play myself (I have two differently shaped ears and always thought that meant I was a half-elf for real as a kid) and I thrive on connecting with people from far away.

Connecting with people from far away is also why my Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes addiction is giving way to the Wakie and Hello Talk apps as a habit. I get a 5am wakeup call from India or the middle eastern countries usually, and how long it lasts depends on how determined the usually-a-teen-boy is to date me. Only one so far has really offended me by continuing to talk sex and porn after I said I didn't want to. I also met a nice guy in Saudi Arabia who is learning to play guitar, and a guy from France who was willing to text me in French about Muhammed Ali and French films for a while. I''m using the app under a pseudonym to be myself but also avoid stalkers. It's great for foreign language practice but not as great as Hello Talk which matches me specifically with Japanese ESL students so we correct each other's posts. Then if I get brave I'll go back to Wakie and ask for a call from a native speaker of Japanese. There aren't many Japanese speakers in the Wakie community, mostly middle Eastern, Turkish, Indian, or European, or from the Philippines when I'm on. And Hello Talk maybe has a voip phonecall feature too, but I haven't tried it yet.

The only thing that worries me is that maybe I am too addicted to making first impressions. I'm not interested in speed dating teenagers at all, but speed first conversations are addicting.

I wrote this back in April but didn't publish it because I wasn't sure if I should try to submit somewhere or not. But I really enjoy Bridget Christie's comedy. I may watch this routine again.

I sometimes wonder if I could be a professional whistler. I take it seriously enough to practice and try to increase my range. I have no idea how to go about practicing and preparing repertoire let alone auditioning for one of the big competitions. Compeitions, I say? YES. There are whistling competitions!

Happy National High 5 Day (April 20). Take the High Five Challenge and spread the word about Coach Art, an organization that provides arts and athletics coaching as an outlet for creative expression and self esteem for kids with chronic illness.
