Three ways to succeed as an entertainer:
1. Don't be boring.
2. Don't underestimate your audience.
3. Try to look like you're having fun up there. Hell: try to have fun.
And speaking of fun, I've already been up for an hour and a half today, and shoveled out a pile of email I was ignoring.
I am virtupus! And now, shower and coffee and then back to the CEM for me. Yay, smutty wolf book. Yay!
