I’m overly excited about my new shoe horn, an amenity from the Ritz Carlton last month. Perhaps I wasn’t supposed to take it home. I sincerely thought the hotel provides these for us like soap. I always take the soaps. I know my career is healthy when I don’t have to buy soap all year. With a shoe horn I’m ballin like P-Diddy. BUT-what if this shoe horn wasn’t fresh and had been forced down a businessman’s wingtips prior to my arrival? Whatevs. I have 3 pairs of hight tops and this will save me minutes putting them on. MINUTES that I can devote to my servitude to the blogosphere. I signed on to some ‘blog everyday for a month campaign’, a big leap from my anemic quasi- weekly entries.

Although the show has been written and presented to large houses in New Mexico, Miami, San Francisco and Bloomington Indiana- where Latinas are revered like unicorns I feel like playing with the script today, punching it up.
This show is being billed as an evening of comedy- Originally I wanted to make it something more dramatic. I’ll save that for the film version starring America Ferrara – This is all hypothetical.
I found the old blog I kept in 2006 when I was performing Los Big Names at the Puert Rican Traveling Theater. I may try to export it here.. It was a fun journey. Fortunately the fun journeys keep coming. If I can get anything substantial done today I am going to reward myself by going to a shop that sells these 20 pound folding bicycles called Stridas. I saw a business guy on one yesterday, on his cell phone- and am obsessed.
