So apparently everyone alive thinks that if they’re going to organize sometime, they’re going to do it on a Wednesday night. Not only is the poker game with the east coast folks every Wed night, but now I have two new Wed events. Once a month (the 3rd Wed of each month) there is a meeting for people interested in ASL. I went last week and met 7 people, most of whom were hearing, and all of whom were more proficient than me. But it’s good to keep my skills sharp (or at least less dull).
Then last night I went to see Stage Fright, a local improv group that is starting performances every Wed (starting last week at a brand-new space). They’re mostly students of the woman who runs Studio on 4th in Reno. Many of them are new to improv, and this is a way to get them used to getting up and being in front of an audience. She told me I could swing by their rehearsal on Monday to see if I’m a good fit without taking classes. I miss doing improv. While I don’t think anything quite like “I Wash My Feet” may ever come out, it might be good to just get performing again, even if it is for an audience of a dozen friends and family members.
And I’m still doing the open-mic night on Fridays when I can. They seem to like me there, and they have a free-form blues jam afterwards, which was fun to do. Anyone can blues as long as you know three chords. Or, in one case, one chord (a Bm) – not the most exciting song in the world. I’m thinking of bringing the accordion and rocking out some Four Non Blondes.
Anyway, that’s what I’m doing.
