i've been entertaining myself with watching old Who's Line eps on YouTube.com.

this snippit had me almost in tears.

you won't be seeing anything like that in OUR classes ;)

i'm so ecstatic that i had the opportunity to take improv classes. they've not only changed the way i think about comebacks (which is to not think at all), but they've also took me outside my comfort zone SO many times that it's becoming a benefit for me.

for example, we were playing Five Things last week, and the first thing they had to get me to do was to... well, i was the guesser, the entire class is in the audience watching me on stage, other than a couple of people on my team. Peter(?) runs out (we can only speak in Jibberish), starts babbling to me, outfits me with a helmet, and kneels down and starts making sounds and gestures that i took to mean that we were in a futuristic war. so i DIVE for the floor and cover my head, then sit up and start shooting my laser gun. the crowd goes wild with laughter, but that's not it! after many more mumbles, clicks, and whirls, and other gestures, i take it to mean that we're supposed to be welding, so i act like i weld. everyone applauds. but that's not it! meanwhile, i'm filled with complete and utter panic because everyone guessed WAY before i did, and i had sensory overload. Peter, bless his heart, is quite energetic, so he was shouting his clues and jumping up and down and making a weird sound behind me as if something was flying past my head. i crouched defensively and stared at him in horror. instead of taking less than a minute, it felt like it took me at LEAST five to get that i was supposed to be...

... in nascar.

in any other circumstance, i would have been utterly horrified to be standing on stage with a man yelling gibberish at me as i crouch in horror with my mind completely frozen, with a ton of people just... staring.. at me. i still felt a bit funny afterwards, sheepishly like i had sucked up so much class time, but the teacher was WONDERFUL and understanding and made me get right back up there to fight the fear of being frozen again and prove to myself that i wasn't horrible at guessing at such a game! (and i did much better!)

I love Who's Line. I started watching it forever ago on Comedy Central with Clive Barker, but even the Drew Carey one is funny.

1st off, thanks for the text the other day on my phone....it was cool to hear from you!!!!

2nd, wanna know what's funny? My friend used to work on that show and got my roommate (now x-roomie) seats right behind Drew Carey in the audience, and she is actually in this clip. She's right in front, to the right of Drew Carey. lol They taped a whole bunch of episodes that day, so sometimes when we're flipping through channels, we'll see her and laugh.

That's SO fantastic. I love having friends that are involved in stuff like that, like njsharkman was on Dirty Jobs, and ferrisdabbler was on Wheel of Fortune.

It just breaks my heart that all the copyright crap from youtube means that it's no longer there, so I will never remember what it used to be!
