Rules for Standup #standup #standupcomedy

This has nothing to do about working out a tight 15. It has to do with proper etiquette when you attend a comedy club. I am writing this as my trip, may pilgrimage to see one of my favorite standup comedians is just around the corner.

My love of standup comedy started with Dennis Leary’s No Cure for Cancer. I don’t get a chance to see a lot of standup in a comedy club, but when I do, I’m a happy girl. Well, that’s until someone wants to take over the show or when someone gets too drunk. People can be jack-asses. The following is a list of rules to follow when at the comedy clubs.

1. Arrive early.
2. Take a potty break before the show starts.
3. Put your cell phone away. And I don’t just mean I’m your purse or pocket. I mean turn it off!!!
The first three rules are to help prevent innocently interrupting the comedian during his or her set. Standup is hard enough for the professionals. Get there early, go pee, and keep your ass in the seat and your phone off. 


4. Don’t try to record the set.
If you do this, you are a lowly POS. Don’t mess with their livelihood.

5. If you know the punchline to a joke, let the person at the mic say it. You need to shut the hell up.

6. Don’t over do it with the booze. A jackass is bad enough with the help from alcohol. Even if you are a fine upstanding person, you too can become a jackass.

7. Don’t be delicate. If they make fun of you political guy or gal, or if you get butt-hurt over a religious joke, keep it together. You can’t be sensitive at a comedy club. Lighten up and laugh.

Follow these rules and you can have a great time.

Until next time…


Question of the day 2/11/2020: Anticipation #questionoftheday #anticipation

I have a trip planned for Saturday to Nashville and it is a


No kids. No family. No toxic men that don’t want to commit and send nothing but mixed messages. Just me. I plan on taking tons of photos and doing a review of the hotel and the standup comic I’m seeing.

What are you anticipating?

It’s Tuesday and I need it to be Saturday.

I’m Back!!!!

It’s been a while since blogging but I’m back. There have been sooo many changes with me. Not really. I’m still unable to find love and keep making the same mistakes with the same guy. Sigh

I did change my hair color so that’s new. I plan on blogging several times a day for right now. I find that it helped me and my writing. And I just enjoyed it.

I plan on covering just that, stuff I enjoy. Stuff that makes me happy and my new adventures. I’m also going to talk about my depression, my kiddos, being a single parent, living on a farm, cooking, dating, etc…

I’m glad to be back and I look forward to getting back to writing. Until next time…

Onto a new adventure

I spent most of today packing up my office. I am off to another adventure. But what will I take away from my previous position? This quote:

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”

I love this quote. I’m going to take this quote with me to the new position and throughout life to remind me to not only rely on my knowledge, but to also rely on compassion towards other.

If anyone knows who said this quote, please let me know in the comments.
