blackjack is born

sept. 22: ball state-ish.

ball state is the alma mater of david letterman. it's a fun school tucked in muncie, indiana, about 3.5 hours from chicago. this was my third trip to the campus, my first with SC. joey bland, rich prouty and i had gone years before to perform in a big improv festival the school had as sort of the chicago representatives, and i went back the next year (last) to teach a big workshop to one of their teams, absolunacy.

anyway, here we were. we were technically performing off-campus at the muncie civic theatre, a pretty theatre house that could hold about 500 or so. two improv teams came to see the show. we had a meet and greet with them at applebee's after (you heard me) and then the rest of us went back to a gay bar called "the Mark" across from the theatre to see one of the raunchiest drag shows i've ever seen. it was super fun. i proceeded to get super drunk, along with some of my fellow castmates, and make a wonderful sleu of mistakes that i will never live down. alas, this is the woe of touring, and i have accepted said fate. you only live once.
the next day, we retired back to chicago. it was awesome, just awesome to be home, if only for 24 hours or so.
