It is after 4:00 am and I have just gotten back from a really fun day! I started out at the Puppet Guild meeting. Karen Prell and Brian Stokes invited me as their guest and it was great to meet other like-minded individuals with similar passions. R. Steven Weber (who did make-up and puppetry for Star Trek Voyager and Deep Space 9) gave a lecture about puppet building. Great stuff. There was also much chatting. Afterward we all went for pizza and chatted even more! I was having such a good time I almost forgot about the time. It was nearly 11:30 pm and I needed to meet a friend at Club Universe to see Cyndi Lauper perform ASAP! I quickly said my goodbyes, promised to come to future meetings and hopped a cab to the club. Cyndi came on late anyway, but she was incredible! This was a fantastic day and I think I will join the guild. There’s some really cool people there. If any of yall are in the Bay Area, you should really consider checking it out! Much thanks to Karen and Brian!!
