I did my first official public poetry reading today!! I was so scared I was shaking like a leaf, despite the copious amounts of medicinal liquor ingested before hand. Actually I'm quite drunk now. Fifth time this week. But I digress. It was awsome! People actually applaude and give you complements afterwards!! It was in this dimly lit bar with candles everywhere, and everyone looked liked they came straight out of a 1940's author bio, all hippies and guys in barrets and blackturtle necks! In other words, they all looked like me!! Ha ha! And I ran into a guy I did a play with a few years ago, who's a prof at our local uni and also does a radio show. Okay, I'm rambling now. But SHIT it was awsome!! Almost makes up for the job I didn't get over Christmas! WEEEEEEE!! I'm going back next week! :hyper:
