Today I'd Like You to Think About Four Loko

My news channels have been demonizing this drink so often it will be off the shelves before I can try it. And I want to try it! I just haven't had a family event I'd like to ruin. I don't get the combination. Caffeinated alcohol? The times I've needed an energy drink, it was inconvenient to also be drunk (office at 3PM) and the times I've wanted to unwind with a brewski, I don't want to be hyper (Jeopardy at 8PM).

The news is really cramping my style. They've used up every pun in the book, except for the glaring one--that this is FOR LOCO people. Once they've played that trump card, I'm sure there will be nothing left but Arizona cans that beggars spike with whiskey.

Catch a Rising Staaaaaar

Great show you should check out tonight!

Don't go expecting to see Beyonce tumble down stairs. That's Catch a Falling Star.
Don't go expecting to see Gilbert Arenas. That's Catch a Shooting Star.
This is Catch a RISING Star. And if you're just finishing watching a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman or ending your shift at Strawberry or hiding from the Times Square cops, ducking into Broadway Comedy Club is a good idea. And you'll get the added bonus of my jokes!

Catch! National Auditions
Broadway Comedy Club
318 W. 53rd St, 10019
Thurs Nov 11, 7PM

Brushes with Celebrity (Impersonations)

Performed as Sarah Silverman on Schtick or Treat last week. I had a blast! Mindy Tucker (of With Reservation) took such great photos I posted mine on Twitter. Then, to my geeky delight, Ms. Silverman herself gave it her nod of approval!

Speaking of attention from celebrities, I heard Steve Buscemi admired my obscure Halloween costume of "Dionne Warwick on Hollywood Squares" while I marched in the annual Halloween parade in Park Slope. I missed him because I am a big shot, but I turned around and saw him enjoying the rest of the parade in his baseball cap.

Do you hear that plopping sound? That's me name-dropping.

Here's Dionne up close. The secret to her unique nostrils is buttons.

Other Halloween weekend festivities included a costume party, a clothing exchange at my place, pumpkin-carving, the toasting of pumpkin seeds, the hotting of chocolate, and the watching of the new Nightmare on Elm Street. I can't top this year, so next year I plan to join a religion that does not permit me to celebrate the holiday. I'll take your suggestions in the comments section.
