Welcome to my first ever blog thing. This blog site is intended to be the vehicle upon which I document the conception, creation, birth and growth of my very first Adelaide Fringe Festival One Man Comedy Show! AKA fringe baby.
I have been loving watching and doing stand up comedy since Aug 2010. I have also watched 1 fringe and done spots in another fringe and adored both -It would be fair to say that comedy has become somewhat of a passion and obsession. I have not thus far been tempted to do a Fringe show though, It has seemed about as tempting as anal (something else I was not looking forward to, but something that I should try before I die.)
But just like all those 20 something party girls that protest that they will NEVER have children, I got caught off guard and had unprotected conversation ( I was a bit drunk) with Lyrical Gangster, Jason Pestell. I had just finished a great 10 min set mostly about nursing. He proceeded to woo me with talk of how great I was, and how he loved my thing and how he would love to see more of me – perhaps a fringe show, about nursing. Two days later Simon Palomares banged it home hard that he also believed I could do a nursing show. I am really not sure who this F baby’s biological daddy is, but one thing is for sure, neither of them is going to raise it.
I was vulnerable, My fringe eggs were twitching but I didnt know what for. The minute that Jason said nursing, the eggs became zygotes. Do you have any idea how much energy is released when a zygote happens? I don’t either, but I remember it is a lot, because you are very tired for the rest of your life after it happens. Conception had occurred.
I am exactly 5 days fringe preggers now. I very much feel that I want the F baby, but I am not sure if I can afford it, or if I quite know how to take care of it. I do feel that whatever it is I will love it though. Lots has happened in the past 5 days and I will post another time, because I I am having a glass of wine with my husband- who has said he will support me and the child but he is not coming to any appointments or anything, he will be too busy looking after the 2 human babies we already have. I know that sitting at a computer with wine is no way to start pregnancy, but feck it, she’ll be right. Thanks for coming and see you soon.
