South Bend Antioch

Went to South Bend for their Antioch meeting tonight. I ended up being in a skit that we rehearsed about 4 times. I would have liked to go over it a few more times, but what can you do with the time that you have, you know?

Anyway, Jill spoke at the meeting, and she wrote the skit, which was excellent. What she spoke of at the meeting took a lot of bravery, courage, and humility…all great qualities to have… it also showed her strength of character, humanity, and strength of will…she is a very admirable person, because what she did, few ever have the opportunity to do: she went up there, and told 50 people of some of the darkest parts of her life. This is a step that shows many many things, and the first of which is this: that there is always hope. I commend her on a job well done, and I thank her for sharing what she has.

Hung out a bit with Tom and Will. Both are hilarious and outstanding. Also met some really cool people, including AuroraChristi who I met on PhatMass.com a while ago and happened to be a part of the Antioch group down in South Bend. She’s every bit as animated as I thought she would be. Even moreso, really. I think she’s more animated than I am, and that’s saying something.

In other news: Cellsplash should be opening in the next couple of days. Watch for it 🙂

Ashley G. and Brian Regan

Q: How are you today?
A: Because my heart is beating.

Q: Huh?
A: You asked, “How are you today?” “How?” That’s how.

Q: This is going to be a tough interview.
Where do you get your ideas for your jokes.
A: I get them in Spain.

Q: Can you answer that question seriously?
A: Okay, I get them in Albuquerque.

Q: You use the word Albuquerque a lot. Why?
A: Because it reminds me of when I was growing up in Albuquerque, going to Albequerque High, and working at
Albuquerque Al’s Authentic House of Albuquerquian Cuisine.

Q: And where was that?
A: In New Mexico.

Q: Why I oughta… Never mind. Okay, what was your first joke ever?
A: WHAAAAAAAA!

Q: I don’t get it.
A: It’s a newly born infant joke. It’s very funny.

Q: Is it hard being a comedian?
A: Oh yes. Especially when I’m in bars and motorcycle gangs walk in bellowing things like, “Who here does observational comedy?”

Q: Do you ever get heckled?
A: No. Oh wait, one time. A guy in Nebraska yelled something about corn. But he might have just been ordering.

Q: Were you always funny?
A: No. I wasn’t funny on November 3rd,
1998.

Q: Why is that?
A: I just couldn’t think of anything funny
that day.

Subway Adventure

Yesterday, I watched School of Rock because Jill had just watched it and I thought, man I haven’t seen that in a long time, and that is a great movie. Then I went to my dad’s to help him set up his new VCR, and what did he have on? School of Rock!

On my way to Roy’s, I stopped at Subway. The dude at the counter was pretty cool. We started joking around, and he mentioned that his mom only has one leg. He said that a co-worker didn’t believe him and called his dad and said “How many legs does your wife have?” and he was pretty mad about that, but his mom does get around and is a real trooper. I mentioned that my dad only has one hand, and that I understood the situation of disbelief and stuff. It was quite a fun conversation.

Last night at Antioch, we were all exhausted. I was tired from Wednesday in South Bend, and everyone else was pretty tired from many other things. What a crazy day, huh.

Changing Lives

“So now, here we are, leaving the place we’ve come to know as home to go back to the place that once was home. It’s a wierd paradox really. We cried our first night here from the realization that our lives would never be the same again, and now we cry because we never want it to be.” – Michelle Masselink
