That’s not very “The Secret” of me…

March 18th, 2007

So my flight was SUPPOSED to leave at 6:30am this morning. But something was wrong with the plane or the weather in Philly and the flight got cancelled.

Now, I’m at the Four Points Sheraton by LAX where the airline has provided me with a hotel room and food vouchers (calamari baby!). I’m on a flight that leaves at 7pm tonight for Philly, giving me an ETA of 4AM!

It had been such a strange chain of events from the last few days to today. I’d go into detail, but I don’t want to. But believe me, it’s been intense. I am beginning to feel like a walking jinx. It’s getting to the point that I’m afraid to get near heavy machinery or something. I was so relieved once I could leave my car parked.

This upcoming “tour” is going to be intense. I’m gone a whole month in like 6 different locations. It’s exciting but totally scary. I kinda wish I had a manager or someone to take care of me. But guess what? Yet again, as in life, I get to learn to take care of myself.

This fear, these “jinx” like things that are happening, the strange unfortunate chain of events. If the “laws of attraction” really do work, then what’s been going on with me?

It’s so not “The Secret” of me!

My first attempt at stand up…now on YouTube!

March 18th, 2007

It’s 10pm. I leave for a month in about five hours. My show in Philadelphia is just next week! Can you believe it? I’ve been working with my friend Nurit and we’ve run through the show twice in her living room. It’s in great shape! And best, it’s not running at 2 hours!

I drank almost a whole quart of prune juice (in attempts to finish my groceries before I leave) and now my stomach is a mess. You want to mess with someone? Don’t sneak them poison, sneak them prune juice.

Yuck.

Anyway, Mike helped me digitize and add captions to my stand up set from last Sunday. I’m quite proud of how well I did considering it was my first time doing stand up and for a bunch of drunk white people who didn’t know me. Unfortunately, the video on youtube doesn’t come out as crisp as I’d like it to, so it’s hard to see all the little faces I make, etc. And some of the audio might be fuzzy because it was all recorded via camera mic.

Anyway, I’m proud and wanted to share.

That’s Right! On March 27, I become knitting royalty!

March 10th, 2007

That’s right! I guess it’s official and I can finally announce it! I got a nice feature article coming up in the March 27th issue of Vogue Knitting! This is like the creme de la creme of knitting magazines as it’s been around a while and it’s published by Vogue! I’m so excited about getting press for my performance work in a knitting magazine and can’t wait to see who it brings into my shows!

Racism and Hatred is Justified Because the Dragons Say So

March 8th, 2007

I manage to be the busiest gal in the world but after I saw this clip of “Asian Supremecist” Kenneth Eng, I had to post a video response.

First, you have to watch him on Fox.

And now… my response…

Asian Pacific Islander Nervous Breakdown Month came early this year.

March 5th, 2007

If I can make it through the next two weeks before I leave for Philly, I’ll be ok. I need desperately to book my flights to the East Coast but Orbitz keeps freaking out about me trying to book a 10 flights in one month multi city tour.

Anyway, I am going to work out some stand-up tonight. And then do this thing tomorrow.

I also randomly got recommended by someone at Upright Citizens Brigade (who I never remember meeting) to the casting directors of this reality show for funny women, “Shelarious.” I normally never submit to these things, but this show sounds pretty good and like a ticket out of this touring madness. And they like me. I go in for a callback today. And now I’m finding myself in the throws of chaos trying to figure out how to the hell I’m supposed to be in a reality show when I have the world to take over and an apartment to tame.

This is insane.
