Take off that jacket
Loosen that belt a little
It's for your safety...

From the looks of it, it seems as though the Twin Cities made it through the storm of the century rather unscathed. Good for us. I knew we had it in us. I'm so proud...

I'll be honest with you folks - today's missive is a little light on the content side. My mind is elsewhere, and I'm having difficulty focusing on the task at hand. You see, this weekend looks like a whole bunch of fun wrapped up in cotton candy. In just a few moments, I have a corporate show (with a free lunch!) somewhere in Minneapolis. I have no idea where it's at. I like to keep that suspense in my life. Afterwards, the day is easy until the BNW mainstage show (only three weekends left, friends!). Bright and early tomorrow morning, I head out to Chicago via aeroplane. Why? Because tomorrow night, HUGE Theater will be performing at the Chicago Improv Festival. I'm all right with that. On Sunday, I'll be training it out to northwestern Indiana to visit with my pops. On Monday, it's off to sunny Los Angeles for another corporate show, and I return on Tuesday night. Late Tuesday night. I need to get a hat that says "I'm going places!" and wear it all weekend long. It seems appropriate.

Because of my travels, the blog postings on Monday and Tuesday may be oddly timed or non-existent, depending on the internet access I have. Please bear with me. On the other hand, I'm going to attempt to post a few picture blogs during my travels. Keep your eyes peeled for pixelated images of major metropolitan areas.

I should be off. I have a little ironing to do before this weekend gets the better of me. Before I depart, here's Today's Joke:
2 Leaders Ousted From Air Force in Atomic Errors
The Air Force’s senior civilian official and its highest-ranking general were ousted by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates on Thursday after an inquiry into the mishandling of nuclear weapons and components found systemic problems in the Air Force.
The Air Force secretary, Michael W. Wynne, and the service’s chief of staff, Gen. T. Michael Moseley, were forced to resign after the inquiry found that the latest in a series of incidents reflected “a pattern of poor performance” in securing sensitive military components, Mr. Gates said at a Pentagon briefing.
Never before has a defense secretary simultaneously ousted a service secretary and a service chief. Mr. Gates said he had taken the action because the investigation identified “a lack of effective Air Force leadership oversight” and found that “the Air Force has not been sufficiently critical of its past performance.”
"It could have been worse," Gates continued. "These two officials were let go because they couldn't locate certain weapons of mass destruction. You might remember the last time someone couldn't find WMDs. We blew the shit out of them. Hell, we're still blowing the shit out of them."

Will you have any time while you're here?

Sadly no. I'll be in LA for less than 24 hours, most of which will be sleeping and corporate show.
