Stand Up Date

There is nothing I love better than laughing.  Paired with a date night with your spouse, it has the makings of a hilariously fun evening.

Hubs and I are giant nerds, and we used to spend every night watching "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with Drew Carey and company.  When Drew came out with his new Improvaganza show in Vegas, John and I tuned in from our couch in Lawrence, and laughed and joked that it would be SO COOL to be on that show.

Well, life is funny. :)  Now that we live in Vegas, we have access to all sorts of cool shows and stuff.  In, January, I saw a billboard advertising that Drew Carey's Improvaganza show was coming back for a few special nights at the MGM Grand.  Since 2013 is the year that John and Lindsey Do Crazy Stuff, I came home and talked to John about how we could make our Drew Carey wishes come true.  Not only did we get seats, we got FRONT ROW seats.  Yep, we're nerds.

The show was this past Saturday, and though it didn't start till midnight (because of David Copperfield being a fun hater), we had the best time.  They took a few of my suggestions for things (one being the word "balls"), and the most hilarious and awesome thing was that John was chosen to go on stage to be involved in one of the skits. If you are nerds like us, and know anything about Whose Line, John was chosen to do sound effects.  He did great, and I have never laughed so hard in my entire life.

We never thought in a million years that it would be possible for us to go watch Drew Carey live in Vegas, let alone that it's now the place we LIVE.  A small nerdy dream of ours is now fulfilled!

Nerds unite. Do crazy stuff.

My next big 2013 crazy?  Trapeze lessons. Yep. Only in Vegas.
