Monday March 27th
Title: "yes yay" Feat. The greatest most bestest person
Instructions: Clown on Lucy Loop the clown
Why? It's her birfday, and Nancy had the idea to get her in a chair and do things to/for/with/at her.
Rehearsal Discoveries: I have a variety of random objects in a box in my car that will be useful. Solving the problem of how to get her in the chair was why the button came out. I recorded it a minute or so before 10AM, first take and go. Deciding on the use of the wooden face flute for dramatic shifts and the concept of feeding her a stick of butter was calling upon the ridiculous for sensations of hilarity.
Performance Write Up: What a great time and reason to make use of old props and push the creative opportunity space forward. Using my singing as a storytelling background meant communicating via words often as opposed to typical, mime-style, silent clowning. I accidentally left a book inside the box of balloons I dropped on Lucy's head from Jenessa's "trickle" performance, and it, regretfully did hit her on the head, not such a nice birthday surprise.

Title: "Salad Dedication" Feat. Christian Drugan and Lexi Pulido
Instructions: Marry salad
Why? I have never been this fat in my life. Stress created binge eating. Hanging out with meat lovers too much and forfeiting standards of balance for too long.
Rehearsal Discoveries: My mom, Julianne Pulido prepped all the salad parts for this show. When I asked Christian to be the priest, he wanted to be a satanic priest. I said, "Yes, of course Christian." I gave Christian the cue to come out when he saw me passed out on the floor from passionate, salad overwhelm.
Performance Write Up: I thoroughly enjoyed this show, and for weeks after, those in attendance reminded me about my dedicated anytime I was eating meat or mentioned I hadn't had salad yet that day. I made an effort to pack salads for lunch for the next couple of weeks, which has now (it is July I am writing this) turned into a balanced diet and healthier energetic levels. :) Cute.

Wednesday March 29th
Title: "Balloon Pop" Feat. Shark Guy Dinosaur
For months, Shark Guy Dinosaur sat in attendance of numerous 10AM's until the day his nanny, Janelle said to me, "Shark Guy has an idea for a performance." Yes, Shark Guy Dinosaur, anything and everything.
On this day, March 29th, Shark Guy did pop many colorful balloons. We lost count pretty early in, but it was not the amount that mattered so much as the dramatized and delighted performance by Shark Guy. Of course, watching a 4 year old pop balloons with gusto is a magic in itself, and on top of the task, Shark Guy Dinosaur also utilized moments of clownery and timing. He would sometimes pause to look at the audience before a pop. He chose sitting on balloons as a consistent procurement method. He brought his trusty screwdriver and party music playlist. His motivation to complete the task had him popping balloons a wee bit past the 15 minute timer, so we all cheered him to the finish line!
