    dambo: Dallas, TX (SMU) or Grand Rapids, MI (GVSU)?

    Hello everybody, my name is Damiano and I am a fellow LJer from Italy...well I am now in Florida.

    I was just made an offer to teach Italian at SMU in Dallas, but I have no clue what it is like, what it looks like, what life is like there, and so on...I apologise!

    I have lived in Italy all my life, a semester in France, and the past two years in Gainesville, FL (at the Univ of FL)...I've been to NYC and Boston, and NC and SC, and CA.

    I would love to know what the school is like, what Dallas is like,...anything, really!

    I am 25, easy-going, laid-back, I love sports (soccer, bball, vball, swimming, MTBiking), music (punkrock, hc, indie, britpop,...), nature, traveling and languages of course,...stuff like that.

    I was also made an offer by GVSU in Grand Rapids, MI and I have until Monday to decide...please help me!

    Although the SMU contract is better, I have no clue what the school and city are like, so I am little hesitant so far. Give me your 2 cents TX fans! :)

    Thank you in advance! :)

    lil_ms_drama: Improvaoke!...Karaoke for Comedians AND Mid-Form Improvisation

    Tonight at Improvaoke! we'll be not only doing our traditional 'Karaoke for Comedians' show, but we will be also adding a mid-form improvisation set.

    Long form improvisation is a specialty from Chicago that was brought down here, did a little Texas style tweaking, and opened it up for the masses to enjoy! A mid-form improv set is a 20-30 minute play that we make up on the spot. Yes, what we do is improvise a play for your enjoyment.

    So, come one, come all to see our very own Texas-style twist on a Yankee treat. Everything with a Texas twist is spicier!

    When: Friday June 3rd, 2005; 8pm
    Where: Ziggy's Healthy Grill, Greenbriar at Alabama
    How much?: Only $5

    For more information or to R.S.V.P. call Cliff at 832-630-5828 or visit http://www.texasimprov.com
