Sorry for the short post today, but I accidentally got caught up on some much needed rest by sleeping through my alarm clock this morning, and have spent the last hour figuring out how to get a video off of a an old VHS tape my mom sent me.
Big thanks to everyone who came out last to celebrate at my release party, and all the people who sent congratulatory notes throughout the day. It is an awesome experience to have so many friends from so many periods of my life all in one room, and it truly was the best night ever.
To make up for the lack of words, here is a video my brother Kyle shot of me practicing up for the big night. It was just like old times, but good.
And here is the big night itself.
The best part, though, was watching my oldest friend, Jibz, perform as Dynasty Handbag. We've known each other since going to circus camp together when I was eight or nine years old. I've always been in awe of her, as she is somehow able to convey as much raw emotion in a series of facial expressions as I can in a whole book. It is truly an amazing thing that after twenty-six years, we still occasionally find ourselves performing on the same stage.
Oh. And please click on the funny colored words! It's better that way.
