In New York
So I'm backstage at the Nokia Theater waiting for our Big Apple show to begin with special guest Paul Rudd playing David's understudy. It should be a good night, and it's terrific to be back on the East Coast, where the weather is more temperate and I can feel my feet. Yesterday was a day off, so I spent the day at home getting reacquainted with my children. They've both grown A LOT since I left on tour. My son is in high school now. My daughter is with child and out of school altogether. So that's upsetting, but at the same time, at least I know she's fertile.
Some friends from my little town are coming tonight, which has the potential to be awkward. It's never great when the parents of your children's friends watch you simulate fucking onstage. That's the kind of thing where they could easily go, "We're not sure we want our children at Mr. Black's house." And what could I say in response other than "I understand."
We do two nights here in New York, then off to Boston where we are going to record a Stella DVD, which will be available for sale sometime next year. So if you can't catch us live, you'll be able to see the show on DVD! Or if you did see the show and want to relive the wonderfulness of it, you can do that too! Or if you want to expose your friends to Stella, this would also be a way to do that. Or if you dont' want to buy it at all, you could also do that. Which would be terrible.
Question: how much McDonalds have I eaten since being on the road?
