Many Happy Returns

There has been considerable activity in my life lately, and last night was only the latest chapter. I was puttering around at home, eating some tasty rice with soy sauce and watching a little tv. It was then that I remembered the stand-up comedy showcase put on by Monkey Butler (the org that puts on the improv program I participate in). I got my things together and rushed out to go.

En Fuego!

A number of different blazes continue to threaten the city, sending plumes of smoke into the sky. One of them may burn the various transmitters used by broadcast stations here, not to mention cell phone towers that serve much of the population. Last night I could watch a fire progressing in the distance beyond the left field wall at Dodger Stadium. Hopefully it'll be all right in the end. Certainly I expect that I'll be fine.

Today I had my first practice for the next stage of the Tall Tales competition in Toastmasters, and I will be leaving shortly for my movie night group. I may have comments on both later.
