A’ing your Q’s.

Sorry for the unintentional blog hiatus. I just got back in town from a week in Chicago, but wanted to address a few emails I’ve received. With my new site you can contact me and it will go to my email, but unfortunately there’s no good way to respond without using my personal email, and not that I think anyone here is a bad person who would abuse my personal email, but, well, what if you are?

So, in no particular order, some answers, which will make little to no sense for those of you who didn’t ask them:

1. The Armando Show is named The Armando Show after Armando Diaz, a former Chicago improviser/teacher and current (I believe) New York improviser/teacher. For some reason in LA it’s the Armando Show but in Chicago, where the show originated, it is the Armando Diaz Experience, Theatrical Movement and Hootenany. I think.

2. I don’t remember what the first word Brian gave as the letters in his name re-arranged. I don’t have a copy of that one, unfortunately. Sorry. No help.

3. My headshots that appear on this site were done in Chicago by Brian McConkey. He is great. But my name is Molly, not Laura.

Stay tuned for more.

    Pauley Perrette of NCIS had a blog up until a couple years back but discontinued it when someone started abusing the privilege of being simply a reader of that blog. It’s a ridiculous shame when people take advantage of that kind of relationship, and it was sad to see such a wonderful online voice vanish because of it. Still, your real fans will understand when you have to do whatever you need to do to protect yourself, and will still be there afterward.

    I thought about your last blog and you’re absolutely right. I wouldn’t want any of my four daughters “playing with strangers” on the Internet, and that would go for you too. I wrote you on a whim a few weeks ago. I love the Sonic commercials, and you were raised in the Dalas area, as was I. I started reading your blog because I read Evan Grant of D magazine quite often and he mentioned you a couple months back. As for me – I’m 55 years old (my birthday is today), have been married for about a thousand years, have the four daughters ranging from 29 down to 13. We live in Arlington so I can be close to my Texas Rangers. I’m retiring at the end of May, and there isn’t a lot for me to do here at UTSouthwestern Medical Center these days, so much of my time is spent on the Internet. Like I said, writing you was done on a whim. I don’t need a reply and please don’t post this. Good luck in your career and life.
