I think I messed up that idiom somehow during a show. But I'm sure people know what I meant.

I ended up playing in Maestro tonight, didn't really want to. I was still nurturing my little stage ego, since I somehow regained the stage fright that I had in the beginning. I think it was a combination of that really difficult two person show I did, and also not doing improv for like 2 weeks. But Maestro went well, got the furthest I've been, and lasted until the third elimination, where there was 5 left, and 2 of us got removed. The austin improv community got my back in Maestro. The show went rather absurdist, but it was a lot of fun, and the audience loved us.

The second show I did was the Blank Show, where IFE had our halloween special. We used masks, and did the dream format, except we made it "the nightmare". We had a student affirmative action lawyer volunteer the story of her day, and we made it into a nightmare. She was there with a friend, and she liked our show so much, she asked for AUTOGRAPHS! Woooooooo! The first time IFE gave out autographs! I apologized for picking on her so much, since I was making bad things happen to her in that show, but she was like: it's just like my day, but a nightmare! I think she said: this is the weirdest thing that's happened to me!

We made her day. And she'll remember tonight for a long time. So, that makes my day. Heck. That makes my weekend.

Now I need to wake up at 6 am to go walk 10 miles on the new 45 tollway at Round Rock.
