Line Rider

Last Night's show in Laramie was incredible! After not performing in a year, I had absolutely no idea what to expect and for perhaps the first time in my life as a performer, I was nervous to the bone. I could not have asked for a more welcoming crowd, especially the folks who drove up from Boulder. Frigid temperatures, yes, but a warm environment. I loved meeting new listeners including the two juniors in the agriculture department at UW and the very dear couple, one of whom was from Alaska and named for a Pink Floyd song (how cool is that?!?).

The show made me forget about the drunk men in parkas, cowboy boots, and cowboy hats who held my parking space hostage in the lot behind Coal Creek and who felt the need to pound on The Egg as I drove by.

Stella came with us to the show last night and held up very well in her swanky stuffed bed in the back of The Egg (curtesy of her Oma). She's already a seasoned road warrior and I look forward to more trips with the WonderDog.

I could wax fondly on, but my real reason for this post is to spread the word about my new favorite on-line distraction: Line Rider. Jim pointed it out to me this morning and I now admit freely that I have been playing with it all day. I dare you to not become addicted to the little sledding girl avec her flying red scarf. Algorithms dealing with acceleration and angle have never been so much fun. Enjoy!
