A Quick Check-In
I haven't been posting on my blog for the simple reason that I haven't felt like it. Touring is very tiring, and by the time we get to wherever we're going, I'm usually too beat to do much writing. The shows so far have been good. We've been making adjustments to the show pretty much every day, which I think continually improves it. Tonight we were in Chicago, a sold-out show in front of 1,400 people. A great crowd and what I thought was a very good show. Showalter and David were both very funny tonight. I was, as usual, just okay. But what I lack in humor I make up for in smugness, so that kind of balances things out a little bit. My uncle came to the show, which was great. It's always a treat to see him, although because we were so busy beforehand I did not get to spend much time with him. Instead, he and his friend graciously schlepped into the Chicago night to bring us some dinner. Afterwards we were signing stuff and he slipped away before I had a chance to catch up. So that was too bad, although it's possible he hated the show and was just trying to get out so he wouldn't have to face me. Another old friend, Renee, was in the crowd. She was her usual lovely self and we chatted for a moment afterwards. And still another old friend, a girl I went to high school with eons ago, was there. So I caught up with her, and then by the time we were done with everything, it was late which barely gave me enough to rush back to my hotel room and play online poker until dawn.
