What The Hair?!

More adventures from the road...

The Not So Super 8 Of Appleton, WI

I'm on the road. Like most comedians, I love it, I hate it, I can't live without it...

This is my last stretch of college shows for the 2010-2011 school season. I'm all over Wisconsin this week and it's cold and rainy. Here's the deal with my college shows: 99% of the time, the school chooses and pays for my hotel. I have been put up in everything from scary truck stop motels in rural Pennsylvania where I thought I was going to be raped and murdered to five star hotels with Egyptian cotton sheets and town car pick up at the airport. 

Last night, I was in Appleton. WI and the Fox Valley Technical College (where I had a fun show, btw) put me up in the local Super 8. I've stayed in more Super 8s than any human should have to endure in a lifetime and I can honestly say that there is no such thing as a great Super 8, but every once in a while, you can get a tolerable Super 8 if you are lucky enough to get one that is newly constructed. Other than that...forget it.

I thought I'd share a little bit more of my continued life of glamour on the road. Don't be jealous...

This is the school Easter egg hunt at Aubrey's preschool today. Forgive my crappy camera skills on this one - it kind of turned out like the Blair Witch Project of Easter, but I was busy getting the point across to Aubrey that she had to grab as many eggs as possible before everyone else got them. See, my child was born without ANY sense of urgency whatsoever. I have no idea where this comes from. Seriously. I'm never not in a hurry. Anyhoo.... it's pretty darn cute, so I hope you enjoy this little slice of our lives:

Wubbzy's Egg-Cellent Easter on DVD!

I recently started playing Santa and Easter Bunny now that Aubrey is old enough to get the concept and her father poisoned he mind with the idea that they are "real" so... I've been on the look out for non-candy basket ideas. Don't worry, little person is getting plenty of sugar, I just felt there should be something else too.

Anchor Bay Entertainment's new Wubbzy's Egg-Cellent Easter DVD not only uses the time honored "egg-cellent" pun in it's title but it's really cute too. Aubrey LOVES Wow Wow Wubbzy and this DVD features 6 full episodes of Easter themed animation: Eggs Over Easy, Big Bunny Blues, Flower Day Parade, Watch The Birdie, Wubbzy Bounces Back and The Flight Of The Flutterfly.

The DVD also includes coloring and activity sheets and a music video! So quick, grab it before this weekend. I just saw it in Target stores for only $7.99!! Wow Wow!

OK, I'm not particularly proud of this moment on the road, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Ever drive so much that you feel ready to Thelma and Louise it off of the next cliff, but you can't because you're in central Iowa and there aren't any cliffs? Just dead cornfields for miles and miles and miles. There's not even a bridge or a hill? Just DEAD CORN and this is the 4th time in 5 days that you've had to drive back and forth for hours on the same freaking corn lined highway because that's the stupid order you're shows got booked in?! Ever been there? I have. Earlier today, as a matter of fact.

My deepest apologies to all George Michaels fans everywhere... especially those in Iowa
