AND, this was the first time I've ever made money from a show, so I saved the first dollar I ever made at comedy and I'm taping it into my (regular) journal the way store owners tape money to their walls.
AND another comic asked me for my card since he's trying to start something up and liked my stuff.

Greg Giraldo took me aside and told me I was funny. And he may have just been saying it to be nice or because he felt bad but I'm going to pretend those aren't even options. I was watching the comic who followed me from a chair near the doorframe and Greg Giraldo came down and sat on the other side of the doorway and I kept thinking, "Oh man-- Greg Giraldo is 2 feet away from me," and as soon as the other comic was done he turned to me and told me he really liked my stuff and that I had good material and I, in turn, attempted to say something back but was mainly unsuccessful. But I managed something along the lines of, "You're awesome," and then after he left I had this huge grin on my face and I thought, "Dammit, I'm awesome."
I'm on cloud nine.
