Stuff that I do in Life and on the Net

Years ago, I was watching an episode of Premium Blend as hosted by Harland Williams.

One of the comics was an attractive young woman dressed in black with one of those Punching Nun puppets. The Nun was pointed directly at the young lady's face, and as she started telling a joke the nun would punch her. Repeatedly. This interrupted the joke, and the Comedienne would switch to a different joke (possibly in a vain effort to appease the Nun). This continued for a couple of minutes with the nun getting more violent and the woman becoming more and more distraught. By the end of five minutes the poor girl is openly sobbing as the nun continues to pummel her delicate features, and Harland ends up gently escorting her offstage, attempting to soothe her with calm and gentle words.

To this day I do not know whether I watched a person have a mental breakdown or the greatest short-form comedy routine that has ever been performed.

AirFair100

So! On Saturday I had the pleasure of volunteering for the AirFair100 event at the College Park Airport. I was the supply runner for the Information Booth, which sounded much more exciting than it turned out to be. Essentially, my job was to make sure that we had enough maps, programs, and complimentary pens. Now, my job probably would have been slightly more difficult if those were in fact three separate items, but sadly the Powers That Be decided to combine the schedule and the Map.

Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.

Please do not name your child 'Goodbye'. It will probably make those 'Hello my name is...' stickers slightly confusing.

Just finished reading The Free Lunch by Spider Robinson, and have now realised why people compare him to Heinlein. I still think Variable Star was a Bad Idea, but I at least see why it was made.

And with that, I'm off to bed.

Artomatic

Share
retsnimdecorp
Um, so, apparently the zombie movie that I was an extra in is screening TONIGHT in DC as part of the Artomatic festival thing that's going on. I plan on going, because I have yet to see it. Anybody else going to be there? The movie is called Deadlands 2: Trapped and it screens at 21.00 on the third floor in the Suntrust screening room.

Apparently it's at the Navy Yard metro stop West Entrance (green line represent!)

Yes, this is short notice. Anybody going to be there anyway?

::edit::
Turns out when I got there that it was closed by the Fire Marshal for safety reasons. I am beginning to suspect that I shall never see the movie I was a part of.
