Tonight I went to the Blacktop open mic. It’s starts at 9:30. I didn’t want to get off work at 7:30, drive home to Sac, and then drive back to Roseville. So I didn’t. I went to Fry’s and made a return. I also bought a laser mouse. As if I wasn’t good enough at Quake 3 already. It’s just I noticed how good the tracking was on my Apple Magic Mouse, but you can’t left and right click at the same time to jump and shoot. So I got the Logitech LS1.

Anyway, then I went to the Blacktop. It was in an industrial park with a hot rod shop across the street. The kind of place where they would film Pimp My Ride. I waited around to get on stage. I was hungry, but there was no food. I’m not complaining, but I was hungry thats all. I also had the urge to pick my teeth, but they didn’t have any toothpicks. The place was a lot like the old Comedy Spot on broadway but they didn’t have a crazy amount of seasonings for the popcorn. There was a gimped out guy there and he did a set. He only had one arm and most of his jokes were about only having one arm. At frys I had seen a guy who works there and his head was an odd shape. Interesting night to see so much disfiguration.

I did my set. They said they wanted to listen to me. They wanted to listen to my inner thoughts. I just started doing it. Telling them the thoughts. Sometimes there were parts where I didn’t talk, because I wasn’t thinking about anything, but those were brief moments. Then at the end I had a minute and they said they wanted to hear a joke. I told the one about the colors of the toilet.

This morning I posted on the facebook comedy group how I emailed some bookers telling them my dream. It felt good. Also there is another Reject show in the works.
