Everyone showed up so I did the story while the votes were counted. I took your advice and changed it a lot. Thank you. I hope you made it home okay with the snow. Susan

Hi Andrea,

No, I'm not in Mass, I'm down south in SC Upstate! Southern Appalachia is where I was born and hail from. I don't speak the vernacular  now, but am quite familiar with it, especially from one side of the family. Am taking a class on Folk Tales, Music and Medicine  currently and came across  a link that was filled with great info and resources. I'll be hanging out there for awhile! So glad to know this is an available resource.

Thanks, Andrea! I'm glad to be accepted as a member. Again, thank you for your kinds words about The River South Arts Festival. It was truly a pleasure to have you in our lineup.

Many thanks.  I am happy to be accepted as a member. Now, for me, the work begins.  

Please give my regards to Tony Toledo!

Thank you! Among other things I am hoping it will help me find an agent to book me at schools.

Yeah, the 12th sounds fun. JP is easier for me.

Thanks, but I'm out. That's not a drive I want to make from Watertown on a school night. Would love to do another closer event.

Hi Andrea. Regarding your suggestion to tell a story on the 13th in Quincy... where is it, and what's the theme? Still five minutes, right? As long as there's alcohol, I'm game.

Hey Andrea, I know this message is a bit late, but I was wondering If you have to be over 21 for tonight show? Hopefully you get this before tonight and also say you don't need to be 21! Crossing my fingers

Andrea, glad to be finally in. Thanks for following my problem up to the end! I actually wanted to throw my name in the hat for this Saturday's "Resolution" story slam at Doyle's. Is that a possibility?

Hi Andrea!  Yes, I told a one minute story at the home slam at Max and Dylan's and I was also at the pranked slam at Precinct.  Looking forward to making it to more slams in 2012!

Hi Andrea -- just realized I "responded" to your welcome by posting to my own page... not something you're likely to see.  In any event, thanks for the kind words (and I'm humbled you've even heard of ZENMothra...)

I look forward to becoming more acquainted with MassMouth and the wonderful things going on here.  And you have an open invitation to be my guest at any future ZENMothra...  just give me a shout and we'll make it happen.  No stories required (but certainly welcome!)

Glad to be here.  Have you guys ever put on a strictly veteran storytelling event?  Who are some of the other vets?  Thanks.

Andrea, Wish I could. I am in DC for business all weekend. Have a great weekend bash. -Caro-Gray

Hi Andrea, thanks for the invite!  Things are (amazingly) still too busy here for me to get out on weekends, but hope your fundraiser goes fabulously! :)

Thanks. It was incredibly fun. And since I sit all day writing (or trying to write) in front of my computer, it was really nice to tell a story, from start to finish, and do it with other people around.

Hi Andrea,

Sure, that sounds fun. Though I can imagine becoming addicted to the telling of stories.

I'm also wondering when the video will be posted on Youtube so I can see if I looked as nervous as I felt...


Thanks, -Beth

Hi Andrea,


Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, I do not yet know if 11/15 will work for me. As we get closer to the date I will let you know.

Thanks! I can't wait to join one of the workshops!
