Lot: Lake of the Ozarks Amphitheater
Last night while we were hanging out with the Red Unit clowns, I was making everybody laugh by describing the overly complicated method one clown used to teach the simple walk into a wall bit.
Well, this morning I rolled out of bed half asleep, put my wallet and phone in my pockets, and turned around, nose first, into a wall.
I prefer the overly complicated method....
This morning's drive seemed to drag on and on, and towards the end my eyes were getting very heavy.
I planned to take a 30 minute nap once I was done setting up my trailer at the new lot, but I ended up sleeping through my alarm and crashing for almost two hours. I guess I needed the rest!
John Sayre had rehearsal time in the ring this morning for the strongman gag he wrote. Ryan and I helped him get used to the ring space, block the bits, and tighten up the gag.
Today's lot was definitely difficult to work on; there were huge rocks all over the place. In fact, the ground was so bad that we didn't use the little clown car for fear all the wheels would just break off the chassis before we made it around the ring. I was grateful that I only do one easy fall in the carpenter gag!
Ryan and I have been slacking the past couple of days with our "Scare-athon". We've been so busy helping John, plus just our daily routine of moving and doing the shows, that we haven't found the time to sit down and watch a film.
I decided that even if we don't get to watch a horror movie together, I'm still going to get my Halloween fix.
Tonight during the shows I watched the Universal classic, "The Mummy". I appreciated the make up effects on Boris Karloff, but I just have a hard time getting into the slow pacing of the classic monster movies.
Just a heads up: I'm taking tomorrow off to celebrate my 30th birthday. I'll see you all again on Sunday with two blog posts!
