I joined a book club at my new job.
And... Sadly, that's about the most exciting thing that has happened in my life lately. I know it sounds terrible (and terribly boring) to say that I've been too busy to do anything interesting lately, but it's the truth.
Yesterday I was walking through a building on campus when a news reporter from a local radio station stopped me.
"You just look so nice," she said. "Would you mind giving me a quote for a story I'm doing about a local business that's closing?"
I talked to her a while about the business, but couldn't help but wonder, What did she mean about me "looking nice"? Was she trying to tell me I have a face for radio?
One of my new coworkers asked me if I had religious reasons for wearing skirts and dresses all the time.
"Nope," I said. "It's just that the heat index is 110 degrees right now, and I can't stand the thought of ironing pants, let alone wearing them all day. If I were a guy, I'd probably wear a kilt."
Ask me a personal question, you'll get an honest answer.
I may be performing stand up again sooner than I'd intended. I was volunteered for a weekly open mic night, signed up for a performance that's happening in about a month, and added to a list of potential comics for an all-female show. I'm not sure I have enough material for any of this, let alone the cajones. But we'll see.
