I Bombed … an insight to having a bad night of stand-up comedy

Kari Martin

 

“It’s not fun unless you’ve had a breakdown on stage … Correct, I did not say breakthrough.”

 

It was the middle of September in 2010, and I was packing to move from Orlando Florida back to Long Beach California. Packing is an interesting thing. It makes you wonder why you ever bought and held onto certain things. An ivory silk slip…was I thinking that they would ever be a thing again? The same with panty hose. And did I really think that I was ever going to ice skate? I had watched a special on TV about Tonya Harding when I was a senior in high school, and had decided that I wanted to be an ice skater. I went as far as to buy ice skates and write a paper in Speech class about her life story. Months later I was at a house party watching a porn that her and her trailer park husband had made. I never used those skates … but almost 20 years later they were still in my closet.

 

Packing is also a good time to get hammered and go through old pictures and cards and get sentimental about a time in life that you had a good metabolism and didn’t need Botox. As I was going through and packing my last drawer I came across a Bucket List that I had made when I was a receptionist at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, 22 years old, and apparently assuming impending doom. As I read through it, I realized that I had already done half of the things on the list: Move to Texas or Florida (wtf?!), sky dive, surfing lessons … I crossed them off as I reread the list. A few were left: teach the English language in Japan, write a book, do stand-up comedy.

Stand-up. I loved writing and I thought that I was funny … but would that translate before a live crowd? Would they think that I was funny?

 

I moved back to Long Beach, and started going to a weekly comedy show at the Gaslamp hosted by Zach Miller. I remember me and my friends hanging out with him and some other comedians after the show. They handed out their business cards, and I was able to ask them questions about comedy: how long have you been doing it? How long does it take you to get good at it? Do you still get nervous?

 

I ended up emailing Zach a few days later, asking him if he ever let new comedians perform at the Gaslamp, and if so, I had written a set, and would like to perform.

I didn’t think that he would respond or let me, but he must have smelled fresh bringer meat, and let me perform a week and a half later. I remember laying in bed the night before thinking ‘no matter what happens tomorrow night, I can always look back and think, I did stand up comedy once. How cool is that?’

 

At least twenty of my girlfriends were in attendance. I wasn’t sure what the protocol was so I showed up with my full-size notebook (the size of an old school Trapper Keeper) and I wore my comedy hat (a Burberry Fedora) and I drank a bunch of wine, and then I got on stage and told stories. Insane emails that my mother had sent me, stories of Vegas where I had gotten a tattoo, stories of pub crawls when I decided that buying a dog off of a homeless person made sense. I was shaking as I got on stage … I was more scared then than I had been when I went sky diving at the age of 26 and was getting ready to jump out of a plane, later to be replayed in a Lake Perris bar to the Danger Zone song.

 

It went decently for my first time. Zach asked me to come back again. My second time I did well enough that another comedian came up and asked “you’ve only performed two times? You’re really good!” I didn’t realize at the time that he was high so I left that show with a chip on my shoulder. Enough of a chip to not only agree to a third show, but to also talk to Zach about the possibility of him managing me. So I invited all of my co-workers out for my next big performance … and … I inevitably bombed. I treated it more like a party than a performance, and drank shots of Rumpleminze and wine until I went on last, had no material prepared or that I could remember, slurred through a bunch of really hacky jokes, and then went behind the stage and stood behind the curtains until I was sure that everyone had left.

 

The irony of this is that I usually work in the field for a convenience store chain, and rarely have to see my co-workers. However, the next day we had a Market Meeting so we all had to meet up. I sullenly taxi’d back to my car which was still parked in the Gaslamp parking lot, and then drove to my meeting. My co-workers that did not go asked how it went. The co-workers that did go couldn’t make eye contact with me.

 

I took four months off after that, swearing that stand up wasn’t for me and that I would never go on stage again. But stand-up is creative, and it is that love of self-expression, of letting the audience be your diary, of regaling strangers with stories that I have not even told my family or friends, that is cathartic, at least for me. Although I have never gotten paid for stand-up, I ultimately refuse to give up. Sometimes I want to get up every night, other times I just want to sit in the crowd and watch, sometimes I want to write, sometimes I want to produce comedy shows … But at the end of the day, I am a fan of comedy. While at times I will want to take a Ross and Rachel break from it, I will never truly quit. The great thing about comedy is that you can sit it on the shelf for a while, and it doesn’t have to expire.

“You haven’t seen him on Jimmy Fallon or Jay Leno, but you might see him at the Comedy Store.”

 

That’s how I was introduced on the worst show of my life. It was an East LA show at a place called Rudy’s, a traditional 3 man show with a host, a feature, and a headliner. No one spoke any English. The host was an attractive female that got cat called and whistled. I had only been doing comedy for a year and a half, but I was going up 3-4 times a week all over the place. If I do bringer shows at these bigger clubs, then a bar show should be no problem, right?

 

The crowd was not in the mood for comedy, but they were in the mood for heckling. The host gave up. She then brought me up to the sound of the same reason people like renting a cabin in the woods in Wyoming … silence. There was a birthday party in the corner. I figured if I could get these girls on my side, then I could get the crowd on my side. I got them a round of tequila shots on me … but it didn’t help, and now I was out money. This was followed by 17 minutes straight of booing, and if they did yell at me it was in Spanish.

 

I’m much more reserved now … I do my time, I have a few drinks. I have some groupies in San Diego, and some random people that follow me in Florida. I got a blow job in the bathroom after a set once, a year into doing comedy. (Ryan has a show called PUI, Performing Under the Influence. You do a sober 3 minute set followed by a hammered 7 minute set. I got the honor of doing it in December 2013). I record PUI where I asked you to show your tits…omg are you recording this? Anyway, it’s a rock and roll life style, it comes with the territory.

 

I also bombed at a Disney show at the ESPN Zone recently. There were 150 Disney employees in the Anaheim resort, all upstairs in a loud game room. It was at 11:30am, and I was sober. Everyone there was already not sober. I had a 30 minute clean set to do so I did restaurant jokes. Clean sets can be the hardest sets to do since you can’t cuss or tell blow job jokes. There were tv’s and sports and games going on in the room, and it was so loud that no one could hear me. Also, everyone was so drunk and intent on giving each other googly eyes next to the Skee Ball machine that no one was listening to my set. I ended up only doing 15 minutes of the 30 minutes I was slated for. That’s why it’s so important to get payment for a gig at the beginning of a show instead of at the end. I ended up performing in the corner where the servers were picking up drinks. Even the busboys were empathizing with me in Spanglish.

“Every morning I wake up and swear I’m quitting comedy. Every night I go out and break that promise.”

 

I performed at the Uncaberet, an alternative comedy show … it’s been around for a long time, since the 1990’s. I was booked to do it in June of 2000, and it was the first time I ever did stand-up. Julia Sweeney and Kathy Griffin were on the show so it was a big deal. I got 5 minutes of stage time to tell a story that I had never told before, one that would find the humor in life. Sex and relationships were the focus topic of this show. I was the only newbie on the show, and I still had no idea how I made the cut. I did 25 minutes when I was slated for 5 … even then I knew that I had killed. I walked off the stage shouting into the microphone “I’m the best at comedy, I’m not even doing this yet and I’m great at it!” I ran into Julia back stage, and she offered to adopt me.

 

The second time I ever did comedy, I did the same show. Patton Oswalt was on this show. I began with “Hey fuck Hollywood, they don’t know shit.” Everyone stared at me. 5 minutes felt like an hour. No one laughed the entire time, even my friends barely clapped … it was more like a golf clap.

 

I didn’t do comedy again for 3 years after that. It literally hurt my soul … I felt like I let comedy down.

 

I have the desire to do comedy, to be good at it, that can’t be my last show. You have to find a way to make your anger and pain relatable or you’re just a sweaty angry mean person that the audience doesn’t get. The more you do anything, you realize the big mistakes you make early on. I remember every second of the show even though Patton Oswalt still has no idea who I am. I remember thinking “I need to take a positive away from that last show so that that never happens again.” I realize that I should have read the audience better. Back then I was trying too hard to make something work that I was approaching from the wrong angle. Now, I have a show to redeem myself. I was too scared and sad before.

 

I was the son of a comic. I’ve been around comedy my entire life so I felt that I had an obligation to be good at this. To go up and fail so monumentally made me feel like I needed to redeem myself, like I owed comedy. Blake Clark is my father. When I was offered that second show I thought “You can’t avoid this, but you shouldn’t treat your shows any differently from one another. You can be excited, but you shouldn’t treat it any differently than it is now.”

 

I remember a saying by Wayne Henderson, an acoustic guitar maker. He had the best piece of advice: “Any gig where anyone is willing to listen to you is a great gig.”

 

Here is the thing: If you’re in a band and the audience doesn’t like you, then they will not like you in a group. But with comedy, people will not like you specifically. It is all on your shoulders.

 

When you’re going down, you are hyper aware of every sound in the building. Knuckles cracking, air conditioning coming on, someone coughing.

 

This is the worst that I can do, my comedy rock bottom. The second or third show is always the worst, it makes you doubt your abilities. But you have to be willing to fail, try something that you’re unsure of. You’re unsure of everything at the beginning, you have a false confidence.

 

I also bombed on the road … when you can sleep in your own bed you’re fine. I was headlining a Latino Comedy Festival in Phoenix. Stuff that always works, musical references, did not fit with that group. I salvaged myself, but you can’t go home to your sanctuary. You now have 6 hours to beat yourself up on the way home, “why did you say that?!” So I ate my feelings the whole way home, milk duds mainly.

 

Bombing is not the end of the world. It feels like it … but it’s usually just the beginning. It’s part of the process.

  1. Excellent blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

  2. April you are rocking her…..this is definately your color. You look so gorgeous rocking this one i’m definately getting me a full lace wig for my birthday, thanks to you coz you really do show us divas how to look fabulous all the time.

  3. Not one of us, “made in the image and likeness of God, would in this day and age torture another living being with fire for even one second. The very Spirit of God in us recoils at the idea. So how could God himself raise people up at the end of time and then subject them to an eternity in fire? That makes God a monster.

  5. Losing Curzi could not have hurt that much as they will be playing in the county finals Friday. Also I am hearing that Gill just lost big to Rutgers Prep in the Prep state finals. Voorhees vs NH on Friday should a great game, Voorhees lost to NH twice this year, I can’t see it happening a third time, good luck to all teams playing the county finals.

  6. Como bien dices debemos estar orgullosos de los derechos civiles conquistados en nuestro país, pero no debemos olvidar nunca que son CONQUISTAS SOCIALES, fruto del trabajo de muchos ciudadanos y ciudadanas y de la voluntad dialogante y conciliadora de las fuerzas políticas progresistas, y no de un único partido político.Sigamos por este buen camino para que nuestro pais se consolide como vanguardia de libertad e igualdad.Saludos

  10. Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely fantastic. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to read much more from you. This is actually a great site.

  11. Isaac︰『如果說,為了道德責任對人類社會的重要性(或者根本性),即使放棄了我們現在普遍接受的自由意志理論,人類社會依然會繼續利用道德責任的概念運作下去,但這個「繼續運作」不會是一個無痛的過程,而且會是一個很痛的過程,尤其當這個轉變甚至必須擴大到其它領域例如愛、創意、自我……等等概念時,這是我提這些概念用意。』我同意。我想,我說的拋棄自由意志,指的是拋棄自由意志「as alternative possibilities」的觀點。我說的造成ontology比較大的東西,指的也是那個。

  12. Interesting points RCTPro. There are a number of ways that they could have went, but don't forget that they already have a few more thrilling rides already. They needed another 'family'-ish ride, not a white knuckle terrain masterpiece. I'd prefer the latter, but you've got to see it from their point of view. I will say you've got a good point about putting Verbolten in Drachen Fire's old location. They could have done that and used BBW's land for something more intense down the road.

  13. Hi Sas!Ja het is altijd een heel gedoe, voordat alles precies is zoals je het wilt hebben hé…maar je bent al goed op weg hoor!Hier ook druk met de Kerst perikelen…maar laptopje werk nog steeds niet echt mee…dus jullie moeten misschien nog even wachten op de foto's van hier hoor!En het tuin tafereeltje van o.a. je besneeuwde tuin engel…is super Kerstig hoor!Nog een fijne avond en groetjes!Marianne.

  14. That was pretty mesmerizing to watch, at least after that really weird opening scene/staredown. Other thought – was there no such thing as a “tackle” back then? I hear stories about the “hard men” who’ve existed seemingly forever in the sport. Did Coventry not have a single one at the time? Was even basic physical intimidation just not that common? Also, the premise itself is incredible in its simplicity…

  16. Looks like i’ve joined the damned and banned club. I caught a couple of GU journalists plagarising comments off the sports blog and weaving them into their articles. After writing to the Editor in detail about his employees intellectual theft I’ve now been banned. How piss weak is that? I need a drink. Who’s shout is it?

  21. Mcelhenny – the ranking of this site is a function of not putting bells and whistles on this site on a regular basis, particularly during mid-terms and finals! Although, when a relative informed me they were unable to find Water Villages, I was rather amazed at the number of islands that have become “villages” on this planet, which is an old academic term.

  23. Great post.I honestly think newsletters are a bit obsolete. The only mailing list I really like was Dead Meadow’s Reverb Nation newsletter because they gave free music, and shared info about exclusive shows.I think newsletters should be used sparingly. Obviously, social media is the best way to share info about music and artists. It’s great for time management. Blogs are great as well.Thanks for sharing!.jordannahthinklikealabel.com

  24. I’ve been following this hugely interesting discussion, and I’m totally open to a gilded courtesan or even the classic “low class whore with a heart-of-gold” sterotype as a romance heroine. Make her sympathetic and give her some character growth catapulted by the courtship with a strong, sexy, believable hero (that’s the real challenge–a strong, believable hero who falls in deeply in love with a prostitute or a woman who depends on the sex trade as her livelhood) and ya got me. If any romance writer can pull this off, the devine Ms. Chase can. 😉

  25. I want to show my respect for your kind-heartedness supporting those people that absolutely need help on your situation. Your special dedication to getting the solution throughout appeared to be wonderfully helpful and has surely made associates just like me to reach their pursuits. Your warm and friendly information indicates so much a person like me and still more to my fellow workers. Thank you; from everyone of us.Krosterantori

  26. Jerry –I think Gonzo worried too much about chemistry(i.e making Harvey happy). Willard should just play the guys that deserve the playing time — The competetion should be good for the team.As for RU, before making them the favorites for the Big East in 2011, lets make sure the kids all get into to schoool and are as good as the experts say. I hope Rice does not turn out to be like Gonzo, good with lesser players but unable to rise to the next level with the big boys.P.S. How is fatherhood? Is the kid toilet trained yet?

  27. oath.I'd love to restore the Constitution, but that would require discontinuing subsidies to myriad dependents of the government. Making the restoration stick would require disenfranchising a large part of the population. (In a republic, only taxpayers vote.) Needless to say, a war of words is inadequate to these tasks. Restoring the Constitution would require considerable force and violence.So while it's comforting that the Oath Keepers (all six of them), will refuse to disarm us or confine us in concentration camps, I doubt that they or anyone else will restore the Constitution any time soon.

  36. , “That which is uniquely Roman is not Catholic. That which is Catholic is not [uniquely] Roman.” In other words, the Vatican does not have exclusive claim to the term “Catholic.” As Lutherans we would point out that the faith that we confess is the faith that is confessed in Scripture and by the Church for nearly 2 millennia and that it is Rome, not Lutherans who have diverted from the pure teaching of Scripture. To say one is Catholic is simply to say that one believes not in the innovation and invention of man’s false teaching, but that one believes what God’s Word says.

  37. I think the thing we can all be proud of as Americans is that they are at least competent in their surveillance. They don’t have to shut down entire sections of the internet in order to accomplish their goals, nor do they have to shut down entire sections of their capital city for protests of a few hundred people.When I got back to the US after my first long time in China, I tried to buy alcohol and the guy asked for my ID. He had to ask me three times before I understood – he finally asked, “do you speak English?” I was so embarrassed…I had forgotten all about that.

Bonsoir Isis,De fait la vraie question est de savoir pourquoi Hiram, réputé sage, a agit avec autant de manque de clairvoyance.Si l’objectif est d’achever la construction du temple et si lui seul est à même de conduire les travaux à leurs fins alors il aurait été plus judicieux d’avoir trois mauvais maîtres et de finir les travaux plutôt que d’avoir trois mauvais compagnons, un temple inachévé et la mort en prime.C’est à mon avis un autre sujet de réflexion si on considère la légende véridique.Amicalement

  47. I find it interesting that even with Goya, people resort to the classic argument “Is it factual?” in order to assess the truth of an art they find disturbing. We want so very much not to believe in these kinds of horrors. Which, of course, is one of many reasons why art is so essential. It can force us to see.

  50. Let me write that down. You say that the one degree rise in temperature in the past hundred years has caused all those problems? According to your reasoning there should be more cancer in Miami than in Boston. I am moving North!

  51. You are mistaken. … You are mistaken. Many people from Latin America do seek out Cuba for treatment, even from well-to-do Mexico! Of course, no Americans go there, because of legal reasons (embargo). However, Cuban medical schools are very attractive to bright students, because the education is free of charge and excellent quality. You should read more, and chat less!

Hay un refrán que dice que “se consigue más con miel que con hiel” aunque a veces “el que espera desespera y lo que espera nunca llega” . Me alegro mucho jubi de que ya te toque. Un abrazo.

  60. It did make for some interesting reading, and even though I thought my site was doing its thing nicely, Richards post really made me re-think since he found so many issues. A lot of changes have since been made and yes instantly my site has become much more google friendly.

  61. HA HA c’est faux!Étant Cannois,il faisait un temps pourri pendant le festival.ça me surprends de savoir que vous y êtes aller;mais ce fut un très bon festival (malgré trop de monde)J’ai repéré les jeux que vous jouiez (dommage de ne pas en avoir pris un)C’est bien que l’auteur et l’éditeur du jeux on remporté un prix! c’est de la reconnaissance pour tous ces gens qui travaille sur des jeux de société.

  62. Hallo Daniela, danke für Ihre Anfrage. Auch das ist wieder eine Einzelfallfrage, die ich aufgrund des Rechtsdienstleistungsgesetzes so nicht beantworten darf. Grundsätzlich übt nach meinem Kenntnisstand jeder, der zwischen 400 und 800 Euro verdient im Midijobbereich. Und Kinder sind ja grundsätzlich kostenlos mitversichert. Im Zweifelsfall hilft bei solchen Fragen vielleicht die Hotline der Minijob-Zentrale weiter:

  63. I Like IT!!we could see a lot more potential in all of these types of adds especially if used to support monsanto and british petroleum products. Especially since their minor difficulties in reaching today’s consumer. It’s all about innovation and creativity, and finding a way to GET Your product OUT THERE!!

  64. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  65. Wow it sure sounds like you had a lot of fun rummaging! Some truly wacky finds there, I love how a copy of Playboy found its way to a church jumble sale – ace! That squirrel and rabbit fabric is so sweet, can’t wait to see how you use it xxx

  66. Oi Carol…que genial seu blog…adorei!! Você tem planos de ir pro Monte Roraima?? Conhece alguém que já foi?? To me planejando pra ir em janeiro/2013 agora…e procuro por cia….beijão, valeu!! E continue mochilando!!!!

  67. خیر مشکلی ندارد امیدوارم قبل از اکسپایر شدن سی اس کیو شما ویرا دریافت کنید والبته اگر اکسپایر شد باید دوباره مکاتبه کنید مثل دوستان دیگر که دوباره برای شما سی اس کیو با تاریخ معتبر بفرستند

  68. Monarch had a prologue once upon a time. Now it’s chapter 1. I usually can’t stand prologues. I have read very few that have truly impressed me or seemed critical. Then again, I don’t read a lot of epic fantasy. Great post!

  69. In my opinion, I think I’m more inclined to go for the new home. I believe it would cost me less in terms of repair and maintenance unlike in buying existing homes. Having said that, in choosing a brand new home to purchase, it is highly suggested that you pick one that suits your preference in the sense that you won’t have to install additional features.

  70. Liebes Sigma-Team,habt vielen Dank für die professionelle Betreuung an eurem Stand! Es war schön mitzuerleben mit wie viel Engagement und Freude ihr euren Job macht…:-)Es hat mir einen Riesenspaß gemacht beim Ecco-Indoor-Trail gelaufen zu haben und ich freue mich, dass ich durch den Gewinn der Freistarts dazu Gelegenheat hatte. Ãœbrigens… eine tolle Uhr ist die Running RC 14.11…Viele GrüßeHeike

  71. La verdad es que para turistas y demás puede ser muy útil y muy práctico. La pega para mi gusto es que el servicio GPS hay que pagarlo, pero bueno…Un saludo!

  72. contrairement au hachoir de Joseph Joseph par exemple, qui a tendance à s’abîmer relativement rapidement, je pense que ces spatules devraient être assez résistantes. Selon le site, elles supportent une température max de 240°C et passent au lave-vaisselle. A moins de les laisser fondre dans sa poêle…

  73. honey badger stalking its prey. With all the excitement—not to mention work—involved in buying a new (old) house, SVV and I have been tirelessly doing manual labor on nights and weekends getting the place in fair

  74. Vielen Dank für den tollen Kommentar. Besonders gut gefällt mir, auch Mini-Erfolge zu feiern. Da bin ich ganz bei Dir. Das sollte man unbedingt machen. Ãœberhaupt sollten wir uns alle viel häufiger mal auf die eigene Schulter klopfen. Oftmals entstehen im Netz unglaublich tolle Dinge, die müssen gar nicht immer etwas mit Geld zu tun haben. Jeder Schritt, den wir vorangehen, ist “belohnenswert”.

  75. Bon ok!!! Je fais tout ça TOUS les jours! Sauf qu’au quotidien, je m’amuse certainement un peu trop et je ne fais plus de sport, je mange un peu trop gras, je ne dors pas assez et je fais bcp la fête… Hihihiii… je récupererais mon 36 un jour, vers 75 ans, qd j’aurais sêché!!! C’est pas Dove qui table sur la beauté des vieilles? Attendez moi, j’arrive!

  76. Great post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information much. I was seeking this certain information for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  77. Bonsoir et bravo pour ce blog, je suis sans mots tellement l’amour et present dans vos ecrits. Continuer à nous transporter dans un monde meilleur.Cordialement Yannis*

  78. So the camel is only allowed to put his nose into the tent–now. What will the panel be empowered to do when the money runs out and doctors/hospitals won’t take on new patients? At some point, decisions WILL be made about the value of procedures as measured by social return; that is, will the cost warrant the return on investment?

  79. desde hace bastante tiempo tambien esta Neocore, creo que es obra de los mismos que han realizado Armadillo, os recomiendo que lo probeis, no es un juego sino un benchmark para vuestro htc.

  80. Pia MischkeSehr schön!Würde mich am meisten über das Zippo freuen für meinen Liebsten!ebenso wie die Sternschnuppe für die liebe Frau Mama.Liebste Grüßeleider bekomme ich es nicht hin den URL nur vom Post zu kopieren deshalb muss ich euch leider den Link meiner FB Seite mit geben..:

  81. Tone of awe and reverence: “It’s her pooooop! Look! There is Miss Saturn’s poop!”(Grizzly Man begins to weep with the beauty of the bear poop and how profound it all is. Brendan, Alex and Sheila – watching – begin to laugh in spite of ourselves).

  82. I LOVED your blog Natalie! It was so inspiring and raw! I very much loved the vlog this time as oppose to the written one. It was great to see your personality, spunkiness and genuineability shine through since I’ve only spoken to you over the phone. I am going to try your visualization technique tonight. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Life can be so overwhelming so being reminded to ‘let go’ is much appreciated. Thank you so much for your posting in such a busy time and blessings to your new home

  83. Köszönöm, kedves Max! Tudtam, hogy rád számíthatok! Cserébe küldtem neked egy karácsonyi mézeskalács receptet fényképpel. Bocs, ha a tokány elnevezéssel kellemetlen emlékeket szaggattam fel benned! ÜDV!

  84. Dissabte passat vam anar a Ners (Gard) per acomiadar-nos de la nostra estimada Pepita.Dins del petit cementiri del poble la seva filla va fer plorar llàgrimes quan va recordar la seva vida, ella sempre alegre i disponible, i la cerimonia senzilla tal com fou va acabar amb”el Cant dels Segadors” sota un cel una mica cobert pero amb un raig de sol!Un moment molt emotiu per a nosaltres!Colette i Simone

  85. « nous la contractons en grande partie auprès de pays bénéficiant de grosses réserves de devises, souvent des pays riches en matières premières »Les deux plus gros fournisseurs de devises des USA sont la Chine et le Japon… deux pays qui sont aussi de gros importateurs de pétrole.Donc non, le rapport n’est pas « Ã©vident ». Il faut arrêter de penser que le monde est simple et que l’on peut le modéliser sans le comprendre.

  86. Lamar – Graydon and Ellery’s parents are already threatening a lawsuit against the district if they close Edgemont School. They want every K-5 student put back into a lottery to be reassigned if their kids are moved. Fun times.
