I am guessing, if you know Fuzzy, then you know how amazing he is.
But here are a few specific reasons:
He recently started a new job that has been a lot of hard work, and he is doing it with a smile on his face. It's so nice to see him happy and accomplishing great things.
This fall, he is going to be teaching a course at Columbia College. Professor Gerdes!
This weekend, he will be running Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, MN. This will be his 3rd full marathon (New Orleans Feb 2013, the Iron Man 2013) and he is running the Chicago Marathon this October. He will also be doing the Chicago Triathlon Triple Challenge in August again.
He's been killing it at stand-up open mics lately, he upstaged & out-performed me in The Plucky Show the last 2 months, and he is hosting Season 8 of Impress These Apes (starting soon!)
For some reason, he likes ME, so that proves that he is super patient and awesome, cause I am batshit CRAZY.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Future Perfect Tension last night! The show was incredible, and I feel like a million bucks. Well, I am sore and exhausted, but it is a good kind of sore and exhausted. :) I will post more on this soon, but please enjoy these photos of before and after the show!!
Eek! Sorry my blog has become all show promos and things, and that I've turned my Twitter into a place where everything funny goes. (hey! feel free to check out and ready my twitter! It's the place where all the thoughts in my brain go in allllll the time I spend alone in the house.) But let me just say that everything is awesome and shows are great and Chicago is SO FREAKING COLD ALL THE TIME that I am wanting to move but we aren't going to move at least not anytime soon. Fuzzy posted some funny and nice things yesterday, so check those out. He has a cool new job, Latte is awesome and is super snuggly although she currently has a bladder infection. Fuzzy is running a marathon next weekend in Duluth, MN and I am looking forward to the trip. The other day we made homemade donuts. They take a long time to make.
MY BIG DANCE SHOW IS SUNDAY!! Oh my gosh, I am so excited. All the pieces are amazing, and I am really proud of my contributions. We've all been working so hard and the dancers are incredible, and the plays that the Living Room Playmakers are bringing are hilarious and sad and scary and wonderful and the show is going to be EPIC. If you are planning on coming, please note that the content is not suitable for children. Lots-o-cursing. Anyways, Modet, 8pm, Stage 773 $12.
Also, She's Crafty is performing at City Winery on July 8! How cool is that? I've been to a ton of shows there, and now I get to do one! If you've not yet seen She's Crafty, you are missing out! It's crazy the amount of fun I have with these guys.
Sunday is also Father's Day. I was going to write this sappy letter to dad about all the things he would be proud of and love (Christopher & Katie's work, Jeremy's wedding, my shows, etc etc etc) but then I realized that he knows all of that stuff already, so why put myself through that emotional wringer? It will likely be a hard day--it always is whether I want it to be or not--but I think that it is really nice that I will be dancing, which was my whole life growing up, on a day meant to honor and memorialize our dads. I'll dedicate my performance to him.
This week, super cool notebook brand Field Notes released their limited edition "Arts and Sciences" edition. To tease the release, the company released a series of videos melding the arts and sciences together. I had the pleasure of being a part of this amazing ad campaign.
Check out the other videos here!
Special thanks to the always amazing Steve Delahoyde for bringing me on board.
