Congrats to the Improv Asylum for getting best comedy club for the second year in a row.
From the Dig:
The best thing that can be said about a comedy club is: “These guys are fucking crazy!” Well, when it comes to the Improv Asylum, it’s more like: “No, I mean it; these guys are fucking crazy!” In the past, they’ve had recurring shows with punny titles like “Bird Flu Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Monkey Trial & Error.” Their latest is called “New Kids on The Blog.” I mean, you can’t make this stuff up. Well, actually, they do make this stuff up–every night. Pure improv comedy. And it’s so funny that you might even laugh.

OK, this has been driving me nuts the last few days, but really came to a head today, so I thought I would whine a little here :)
Over the weekend, I went out to dinner with some friends and while walking over to the North End, I saw people wearing scarves and gloves. I was in a light jacket. It was in the mid-50’s. There is no reason at that temperature to be wearing a scarf.
Today, it’s in the mid-60’s and I saw people wearing jackets. Folks, just because the calendar says October, you don’t NEED to wear a jacket. Especially when it’s this warm out.
If you are cold now, just wait a few months when it’s 18 out, then what are you going to wear? 3 jackets?
Sorry, I just had to vent :)
