I am more exhausted than a Mall Santa Claus after a visit from 75 kids from Juvenille Hall on December 24th. And probably just as sticky. I have been doing back to back shows and traveling and packing and unpacking. Lordy, sometimes I miss prison cause it was just easier to stay in one place for awhile.
But I dont want you to think that I am not having fun!!! Now that my first stop of Tucson, AZ is under my belt, I am starting to get used to this all. I had a blast in beuatiful Tucson. Hotter than the inner thighs of a Russian sprinter in the 2008 Games, I was happy for any air conditioning I could get.
Well all of that has changed now as I come to the great MidWest and experince what a real October is like. It is cold and a bit rainy and filled with Pumpkins as the next big Holiday draws closer.
And tonight marks my big opening here at the Civic Center’s Temple Theatre. I have 2 glorious weeks here and I am ready to enjoy every single second of it.
And as I now have a little more time, you can rest assured that I am going to be here much more often updating this blog with my adventures.
Today was a day filled with Press interviews, and kind of a really fun milestone for me. I was in the car going from radio interveiw to TV interview and I heard the ad for the show on the radio. Well, I had to move my hand back into the passenger seat and squeal a little when I heard it. The driver was a little sad at that moment, but it was his job to pay attention to the road anyway. But here I was listening to people talk about the show on the radio. I felt like Carrie Underwood must have felt the first time she heard her single, “Jesus take the wheel, cause I am way too drunk to drive” on the radio. It was a truly speical moment for me.
And it happened right here in Des Moines.
