Day 1 of SoCal trip

I just got back to my hotel a little while ago from the Punk House Show booked by Ed Galvez at the Westside Comedy Theatre ( in Santa Monica. For my first night in the area and the more-than-usual type nerves I had, I thought my set turned out pretty well. I was very happy to see my college friend, Cecily Ryan, and her boyfriend, Dan Trujillo, come to the show. (that's right, I just linked to their IMDB pages.) It is always cool when a few friends come to a show - and even more so when it is at a place that is 300+ miles from my home. It was also really cool that Ryan Stout made a surprise appearance! (I feel like an idiot now for not getting my picture taken with him)

I stumbled through my words in the beginning a bit due to the nerves but eventually I got back on track - so overall, I am pleased. I didn't film the set tonight - so sorry if anyone wanted to see it. I will try to film my set tomorrow night at O'Brien's.

I didn't really do much else today except drive here from San Jose. I arrived to the hotel around 2pm and pretty much just watched baseball and fooled around on facebook. I also ordered a pizza. I was so worn out from driving that I didn't really feel like walking around the town today.

My drive here had an interesting moment. I was on Pacheco Pass headed toward I-5 when I saw this big dirt cloud go up on the side of the road about 3 cars ahead of me. Suddenly, everyone braked. Someone's car had gone off the side of the road and into some trees. A lot of people stopped and pulled over. I drove carefully through and kept going. Not because I am heartless and don't care but 1) there were like 5 people who had already stopped to help 2) I would just stand there and be worried and not much of a help anyway 3) No need for me to stop and create even more traffic.

Aside from having to see that incident occur (I hope they are ok... I see no reports online).... the drive to SoCal went well.

Until tomorrow... thanks for reading.
