We have a busy week coming up. Actually, by “we” I mean “Darren.” Darren has a busy week. Sonnjea has to drink some vodka and celebrate her birthday. And stop referring to herself in the third person. That’s obnoxious.

Anyway, Darren is off to Chicago as we speak, and will be home just long enough to unpack and repack before heading off to Denver with Viet to do an improv corporate workshop. Somebody in Denver saw us when we did a session at the American Society of Training and Development International Conference back in May and thought, “Wow! Those H2G peeps look awesome in their orange ties and funky shoes! We should totally invite them over.” So the guys are going to lead a 2-day corporate training seminar and I’m staying in the LBC to teach the Level 1 Improv classes.

We’re super excited about the folks from ASTD hiring us – we got AMAZING evaluations on the conference session, and it’s nice to know that people really get how improv can help in the workplace. But it’s even nicer that the woman who hired us said that, while she wants the improv training to help with some business objectives, she really just wants people to get something out of the session that can help them personally, in life.

Good thing that’s what we do.

Now, if you’ll excuse her, Sonnjea has to go to the first birthday lunch of what she likes to call “Birthday Season.” Cuz that’s how she rolls.
