don’t take my sunshine

I will be going to bed shortly for the last time as a 27 year old. So I guess I’m officially entering my “late 20s” now. That term actually has a nice ring to it. Kind of like having a bit of a distinguished air, yet still young enough to be sort of cool. But it’s what is lurking just around the corner that is the scary part. Hopefully the late 20s go by a lot slower than the rest of my 20s have so I will have time to enjoy it.
Things have been pretty busy lately and I’m begrudgingly adjusting to the fact that summer is over. Normally I am a big fan of fall, but the early cold weather always arrives like a sharp slap to the face, along with the first snowflakes of the year which were witnessed last week. Besides that, I enjoy wearing sweaters again and the changing colors of the leaves.
Another thing I like about this time of the year is the awesome running weather. I did a 14 mile run through the park this past Saturday and it was probably my best run of the year. It was nice and cool and the scenery was great. Hopefully I can keep the running momentum going as I am now less than two weeks away from running the Detroit Marathon.
Last week I ventured out on a weeknight to check out two great comedians, Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black on their current tour (dates here). It was a great show, despite the fact that I had to stand out in 30 degree weather outside the club for over a half hour waiting to get in, wearing just a long sleeve shirt. How is it that a club advertises a show for 7:00pm, but doesn’t even start letting people in until 7:45? (I’m looking in your direction, Grog Shop). Anyways, once inside and defrosted, the show was very funny. I surprisingly actually enjoyed Showalter’s set more than Black’s. Showalter stuck to a very non-standard comedy routine like other more “indie” comedians, while Black’s set was more along the lines of the average comedian. Still very funny, but just a little disappointing as compared to when I had seen him live before (as part of Stella, w/ Showalter & David Wain).
Besides that, I’ve also been enjoying:
– playoff baseball (go Cardinals!)
– East Coast Original Frozen Custard
– Last Call Cleveland (great local comedy group that performs at the House of Blues)
– Woodchuck Draft Cider
