Sorry for this post
Super proud of the email I just sent out about my work’s conference so I’m sharing it
dynamoe: A time-lapse drawing of a request for Hipster Animals of a squid and an octopus couple.
I am very familiar with wemail accounts (email addresses that couples share, which I think are weird and creepy) But I just experience my first joint Facebook account. I just puked in my mouth a little.
thetrifler: I managed to kick my shoe off and send it flying about 20 feet this morning on the way to the train. Just walking. Also, my nail polish clashes with my skirt. Time to be worried.
AVC/NYC: You guys, seriously →
avcnyc: There are 1,152 improv teams in the New York City area alone. And that’s just counting the ones on improvteams.com. Maybe we should start forming teams we’re serious about getting good with, instead of just forming a team everytime 4 people we know are in the same room? Maybe everyone should calm… Yeah not a good way to gauge the number of active teams in the NYC indie improv...
On Judging Art . . .
I am one to admit that when judging other people’s work, I am quick to jump to the catty bitchy response of “Oh man that’s awful.” I realize that this behavior is very unproductive and does nothing to further the work of the person who created it. Sure there is a place for criticism in the world of art, but it needs to be constructive, you can just tear people down...

Moves Like Jagger?
Have you ever done what you think is a terrible move in an improv show? I always feel that after what my teammates consider a great improv show, I always feel like the weakest link. Like I didn’t add anything hilarious or fun to what was happening. Anyone else ever get like that?
Ugh, I know right!
I have noticed that vast majority of people who complain about things, have nothing to complain about. I get commiserating the status of whatever nonsense is happening at any given moment, sometimes it can be cathartic, but when you complain about everything, it makes you look like a whiny baby who expects the world to bow down to your every whim. Case in point, at lunch there was a young woman...
Does anyone remember the magical Playskool toy Glowworm? Now they looks like this WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE WORLD!
NAKED PEOPLE at the Upright Citizen's Brigade ONE... →
theangeladee: You have ONE(!!!) chance to see this amazing show in April… and that is TONIGHT! 9:30pm at UCB (Chelsea). Why not bring your press rep, too - we’ve done all this on our own and could use some bloody reviews!!! Love you : ) [click thru the link for rezzies] Go see this show! It’s amazing, and I’ll be there tonight cheering her on! Julia is the best!
I wrote a sketch, it started out as something, very weird and kind of esoteric, then realizing that I would like to put out something that appeals to the most number of people. So I rewrote it, and changed the direction of it, I like it better now. That is all.
thetrifler: My iPod is up on office iPod roulette. If R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” OR Ke$ha doesn’t come up, I’ll be disappointed. Update: Uh oh, my coworkers aren’t into rag time…. We actually have a bell that gets dinged if someone doesn’t like a song. Glad my office doesn’t do that. It would be blaring showtunes.
I work for an education non-profit, and as such I often find myself reading articles and blogs about education and teaching. I recently, as in 5 minutes ago, read an article about a teacher using Project Based Learning (a way of teaching that focuses around using projects to help kids understand and take ownership of the content they’re learning). Her project was based around The Adventures...
