    back in August 2009 when she made an appearance in San Francisco.

    I need to start listening again via my TuneIn app on the iPhone, or maybe fire up the desktop so both Mr. Scribe and I can listen.

      and even though I had seen pictures I couldn't believe how cute she is.  She is teeny-tiny and beautiful.

      When we got to the show they were playing a song while we waited for it to start that had the F word about every other verse.  I was sitting next to this old couple (definitely in their 70's) and I was a bit embarrassed at the song.  I was worried that they would be upset when the show started because I knew it was going to be a bit riske'.  As soon as the show started I looked over and the couple were laughing and slapping their knee.  They had the best time!  I actually wrote Steph an email describing them and she read it on air.

      If it weren't for the fact that I got to go to Santa Fe to see her show, I would be mad.  They were supposed to come to Denver and then cancelled.  There seem to be no plans to come back.

        in SF for the Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour, but I got sick. Not sure if she's got plans to come back or not. The 2009 show was advertised "For Girls Only" (Angie Coiro was the emcee, and there were a couple of other women that I've forgotten), so I was going to go by myself while Mr. Scribe went out to play, but when we got there it turned out men were gladly invited so I called him and he rushed back from where he was in the City. Ton of fun.

        (A side event: one of the fans went to IKEA and bought a shopping basket full of -- get this, stuffed beavers. You know how she has the "beaver stack" and beaver references! I actually got one...it's around here somewhere...)

          three Sexy Liberal shows this year.  Not sure why.
