Fond FRIGID memories

ANDREA will be picking up again at The Marsh in July. I'll also be back in New York in June for Speakeasy Stories. For now, check out my new blog!

A big, big thanks to everyone who came out to see the show! Those people include:

- Jeff Trocio
- Zach
- JoAnna Rodriguez
- Sherry Weaver
- My dad
- My boyfriend (now fiance, as of the Saturday-night show), Adam.

I was very grateful to be able to share my work with you all. I look forward to doing it again!

Back in Berkeley

The last show went great. Sherry Weaver of Speakeasy Stories turned up -- and booked me for June!

A week on the NYC stage, a booking for spring ... and an engagement. What a wonderful, wonderful week. Thank you, FRIGID, and thank you, NYC.

Second to last performance ... with a twist!

The show was AWESOME tonight. I riffed a lot and it felt good.

Then I finished the show and was giving my little spiel when Adam came out from the audience and got down on one knee. Out came the ring.

I said yes.

By the way ... last performance is tomorrow, 1 pm!

Let's hear it for Costco rings. :) We're very, very, very happy.

Upcoming Costa Rica workshop!

For those of you who have ever wanted to improve your writing in a tropical climate (and who hasn't?), may I suggest this: Costa Rica!

Okay, there's a fair bit of self-interest here. After all, I'm teaching a workshop there in December 2007. But please, give it a look.

In December 2006, I was a resident at the Julia and David White Artists' Colony, where I met Royce Slape. Royce is kicking ass putting this thing together. Yes, please do have a look!

A few things ...

- Very sad to hear about the Greenwich Village shooting. I was in the East Village at the time, didn't hear anything until today when (1) I heard some cops talking about it on the subway platform ("Lotta crazy shit in this world, ya gotta be careful, keep your head up.") and (2) my mother emailed me. So sad.

- Had some great Ukranian food last night. How appropriate, since the show is set in Eastern Europe (though it's Central Europe, if you ask Czechs).

- Now at the Tea Lounge in Park Slope. Makes me want to move here!

- Am I the only person who can go to Williamsburg and not find a hipster?

Hope to see people come out tomorrow!

Third performance

Five people, sweet audience. Thanks for coming out, everyone.

Tomorrow is a well-deserved break. Then things pick back up on Friday, 10:30 pm! Can't wait!

Nine people last night!

I feel like I got a great crowd ... especially given the fact that it was a school night! Keep on coming!
