Surrey with the Fringe on Top

Hello and a good morning to you!Days like today make me want to (and I usually do) stand out in my garden and sing at the top of my voice (much to the chagrin of the neighbors) "OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING- OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY, I'VE GOT THIS FEELING INSIDE ME, EVERYTHINGS GOING MY WAY" (ala Oklahoma the goofy musical) Then ofcourse the police type people that you just NEVER see in our area show up and take me away kicking and screaming (nice visual with my Hawaiian print nightie on, bare feet, tossled hair and big toothy grin). What do days like today make you want to do....? P.S. 2 fer 1 tickets to anyone who comes to our Improper show on Saturday July 1st at the Garland Ox- mentioning this here blog and the word...."Oklahoma"!

The Fate of the Fete!

Hello there and Happy Line- up.

Here you see 4 of the 6 of us Improper types...if you can guess which one I win the prize. Kind of harkens back to the days of Dragnet and that great film about the 7 guys who rob something and then all get caught and there's this wicked twist to it and then....and then, Ok ok I can't remember the name of it now and feel like a real muppet (Bert OR Ernie..not at all picky about this part) Please see below if you are in Cornwall, England as we have an upcoming show on Saturday, July 1st, in Bodmin. Promise no shoot outs or performances in cages....although that COULD be fun and remind me of home. Being a Yank and all. Or I guess we could say Burmingham and that would work just as well. Getting back to the rant at hand- today we went to a Village Fete. Now I say "we" and when I do I mean myself, my rock n roll husband and our little fairy princess, who turns the ripe ole age of 5 next month! She was all dressed up as a Flower Fairy and actually managed to win the first prize in the costume parade!! AKA fancy dress competition for my other English Bill Bryson so kindly puts it, "we are 2 countries divided by a common language". Hey, I've got it- it's The Uusual Suspects"!!!! Yeah, Kevin Pollack is in it (he asked me out on a date once, but that's another post). Anyway, a good time was had by all at the fete- although I must confess to being saddened, irked, crest fallen and even a little depressed by the lack of the one thing that makes the yearly Village Fete fun for little ole me................THE CORNISH WRESTLING!! They didnt have it this year- hey they didnt even have any people telling us why they didnt have it this year! No announcement, no special flier declaring their heart felt apologies, no banner telling us WHY , oh why wasnt it on? Nooo nothing for us Wrestlin groupies that so desperately wanted to see those too stretched shorts covering those Corn- fed bodies of theirs, the bulging biceps and shiny shaved heads, the gleaming calf muscles and taut beer bellied selves still reeking of ripe ales and rollies. I waited at the usual spot- glued to it until my husband wrenched me from my fantasy fueled gaze and instructed me to buy plants. Harumph- how can he even think that some droopy sweet basil could possibly cure my thirst for some good ole male mud- wrestlin!! Ah well, home now I console myself with luke warm coffee and my sweet memories. Hey maybe later tonite I can surf awhile and if the gods are with me- find an old episode of Beverly Hillbillies. The big strapping Elvis looking rope belt wearin, possum eatin, well meaning boy -Ahhh Jethro.....until we meet again.

Playdate news!!

Dear all Improper- types,

Last night was another in our series of Playdates- where "normal" (and I use that word loosley- believe me) people come along to join in. We go way back to basics and learn, play and generally laugh ourselves silly....all under the guise of Improper Impro ofcourse....! It was a good night and we worked on status, endowments (some of us more well endowed than others..) setting up the environment, plus a few of our standard "games" or "handles". The next one will be on July the 10th and all are welcome. You can email me at : if you need more info. And dont forget our next Improper show will be on July 1 at the Garland Ox, Bodmin.
Stay tuned for my rant-

And most of all- thanks for being your Improper selves!
