Fortunately, our second night of improv went much better than the first, due in part to us only doing 20 minutes. I think the client wised up to the fact that people were just not there to see us. That being said, there were a handful of very nice people who sat up front and were very responsive, but they were certainly in the minority. We’ll give it a try again tonight and see how it goes.
Yesterday we had the whole day off in New York. To be honest, I’ve about had my fill of wandering around the city; I know I’ll miss it when I get back home, but there’s not much left that I want to do there. It was a really nice day though, so I made my requisite trip to Times Square and walked around a bit. I also had pizza with Andy, who has some sort of grudge against my blog, due at least in part to the fact that I don’t mention him enough. So there it is, I had pizza with Andy. Then I briefly went in the Virgin Magastore with Andy, but then I left Andy to go back to the ship without Andy. I didn’t see Andy the rest of the afternoon, but then I did see Andy at dinner that night. After dinner, Andy brought his DVD of The Office down to the cabin of some people who aren’t Andy, and we watched Andy’s DVD.
I woke up this morning at 7:30, and though still sleepy, felt the overwhelming need to start packing and doing things I need to do before I leave Sunday. So I did that for a couple of hours, and then went back to sleep from 10 until almost noon. I think in the morning it’s not considered a nap, it’s just going back to sleep. Or at least I hope so, because that will make it easier to justify when I take an actual nap this afternoon.
I get a lot of questions at Erdmania Headquaters about whether this blog will continue once I’m off the ship. Right now my thought is that I will keep it for stories or bits that pop up, but not so much as a daily (or, more accurately, semi-weekly) journal. We’ll see what happens, but please consider checking in every now and then.
I’ll be back once more from the Dawn…stay tuned.
