Huge hugs and good luck go out to my buddy Tara D, who’s competing in this acting/comedy/improv “Survivor” type thing at a Chicago theater tonight. It’s actually been going on for over a month now, and every show a few more people get voted off. Her opening monologue (which I saw when I went home last month) was a dramatic reading of New Kids on the Block’s “Hangin’ Tough.” HILARIOUS. TARA D IS THE STAR OF TOMORROW! And if she wins, she gets five hundred bucks! I wish I were there to vote for her. Good luck TD!
