…when I said I was “Dressed to spill.”
I was chewing gum (so I would be all minty for Prof Eric). I offered some gum to Eric as we were walking to the box office to pick up the tickets for the J Keith Show.
As we approached the door and were right in front of the ACME Theatre, I fell down and went *boom.* In taking that spill across the sidewalk, I gave everyone there proof that I truly cannot walk and chew gum at the same time.
I somehow managed to trip, lose my balance, drop my purse and attempt in vain to block my fall with my hands and right knee. And I do believe that I shrieked loudly as this was happening, because I saw everyone turn and look at my big, clumsy ass as I flailed helplessly to the concrete and landed hard on the pavement.
I “shook it off” and rubbed my knee a bit and went inside. But DAMN, my knee hurt. Five hours later, it still does.
As Prof Eric said to me when I said my knee still hurt: “Duh. Of course it hurts. You fell on the pavement.”
That Professor is so insightful.
We had a wonderful date.
Check my buzznet moblog for the photos of our date (sans Mike Doss).
I was being really obnoxious and texting during the show when the band Handsome Devil was on stage. We were in the second row and one of the Handsome Devil dudes kept staring at me as I showed Prof Eric my messages and we were laughing at my lame text messages.
Prof Eric kept my popsicle fingers warm by clutching them tightly and snuggling with me. (We were going to make out, but seeing as we were in the second row, we didn’t want to distract everyone from the show. I mean, Adam Chester already distracted the audience by passing around cute pictures of his cute baby Tru during the show.)
No offense to the host J Keith, or his sidekick (my boyfriend Wil), but the highlight of the show was Henry Winkler (that’s right! The Fonz!). [UPDATED 1/8/04: He was really, really funny, but moreover, he seemed like a genuinely nice guy. Wil says so, too. I'm sure there is part of him that gets sick of being referred to as "Fonzie" (I would if I were in his place, anyway), but I really liked his whole attitude toward his Fonzie Days. Oh, and Prof Eric is supposedly distantly related to Henry Winkler, so if I marry Prof Eric, then I, too shall be distantly related to Henry Winkler, but by marriage. I don't think Yoshi would go for that plan though... hmm... have to rethink that plan...]
We also enjoyed the comedy stylings of Tracy Smith. Here’s a shot of everyone on stage (minus Adam).
We wrapped up our date by heading back toward Hollywood to the Palms Thai Restaurant & caught the tail end of the set with Thai Elvis. Here’s a phonecam shot of him performing.
And here’s me with Thai Elvis. I know, you’re totally green with envy now.
