Dispatches from the Head

Why can’t I just be happy?



Lets do this, People-


First off, I am at Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis this week, Thursday through Saturday. It’s a great club and I haven’t been there in years. After that I will be in Austin, Texas at SXSW on Sunday, March 11. I will be doing a live WTF at 4PM at Esther’s Follies. It will be a one on one with Jeffrey Tambor. I have no idea how to get tickets or how SXSW works so you are on your own getting in. On Monday the 12th I will be taping The John Oliver Standup Show in NYC, if you're in the area you can try to get tickets here. The following weekend I will be appearing at Gilda’s Laughfest in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I will doing a standup show on the 15th and a live WTF on the 17th with Drew Hastings, Tommy Johnagin, Kevin Nealon and Alan Zweibel. Should be good.

That said, I have been plagued with weird headaches in the back of my head and my shoulders are tight and achy. Maybe I’m stressed, maybe there is something growing inside my skull. I don’t know. Let’s try to track it down. Do I have any reason to be stressed? I eat a shitload of nicotine lozenges and drinking over a pot of coffee a day. You see my schedule. My book is due on the 15th. I just had my house ripped apart to install heat and AC and I had a wall demolished and rebuilt. Jessica has moved in. I just rented a huge storage space to house both our hoards. I haven’t moved my stuff yet and it’s already almost full. I need to paint and have a shelving unit built. Shit is all over the house and I just broke down the biggest Ikea unit I have ever seen. I barely remember building it for my ex-wife. You think it could be tension or am I storing a tumor? There’s certainly no room in the storage space for it.

It’s amazing that once you make the decision to live with someone how quickly that becomes frightening. She’s been basically living with me for a year but she always had her apartment, a safe house for her and an emotional insurance policy for me. Now, it’s gone and shit just got very real. I’m excited but I’m also a little freaked out. Why can’t I just be happy? I don’t know, let me ask my aching head.

Speaking of happy couples, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman are on the show today. It was lovely to talk to them and I can only hope to be as happy as they seem to be.

On Thursday Jake Johannsen is in the garage. He’s a pro, been around a long time, I have never talked to him. It was a pleasure.

I have to take some aspirin.


Love,
