Cool

I was busking in a restaurant this week and got a Love Letter in my hat. It was from a six or seven year old girl and said "Thank you Paddy. I like the balloons. I think you are a very funny clown. Love Jessica"

It is framed and in my living room so I can remember the real value of being an entertainer

At English Bay, I recieved a note full of abuse, the part I remember the best was this line:
"...you good for nothing sunset wrecker..."

No doubt it came from the cranky old hag who nearly single-handedly shut down what was the best pitch in Vancouver.

(Hey AJ, email me)

Hey Hey Kids

I thought I'd resurect this old topic and see what new replys I get.
The other day I was out with Neil in southampton and we got a magic trick from another performer and some flovoured iced tea from some promo people.

Other than that I've had a half empty packet of cigarets and foriegn currency.

But then again I've not been at this game long.

4 weeks till graduation - BRING IT ON

The mad hatter

- A tongue in my mouth (scary, she was not my type)

- A beer can on my head (painfull)

- Lifestories told by total strangers (sometimes good, sometimes boring)

- People telling me firebreathing is bad for your health while smoking

- Invitations for dinners / parties
Finding myself later in a posh bathroom later, sipping a sangria, or staying for a couple of days with a crazy family in South Africa

- While performing in Czech: the smallest dutch coin, from the only dutch family that was watching the show

- 25 guilders (app. $15) after setting a building on fire
I was performing in fron of a huge brick building, a guy shouted: 25 guilders if you set the building on fire. So I soaked one of the corners in oil, blew some flames at it, and there it was: the building on (harmless) fire.

Hey Frisbee!
What did YOU get in your hat, in Dundas?
Huh? huh? huh?

(I tried to give you money that day too, but you tucked your hat under your armpit as we introduced ourselves.)

I think the only act who's hat I didn't get a chance to victimize that fest was those hacky sack boys.

Some kids who were (sort of) heckling me from thier upstairs apt wound up stuffing some cash into a condom box and throwing that down. Then they wanted me to go have some beers with them.

Got a free mason's chapter pin once.

weed

some nice little notes about how much someone enjoyed the show

a tampon (not used thank god)

Stickers

other stuff I forget. I used to have a collection of all the weird crap, but it's been scattered in the wind due to my lack of organization.

I got a swanky pingpng ball shooter from you! that was the coolest thing...though coming from the dollar store it had launching power of about 1 foot...and I think the balls all ended up on the party floor under the couch and in the back yard...

In milwaukee today I got another old silver dollar....sweet.

UK does it have a bacculum?

Wow, a Cephalopod in Covent Garden!

You better ask Whaleman if it's authentic ...

it might just be Famos Bramwells

I recently got an amazing oragami octagonal box, I do not even know how many pieces of paper it used but it was quite a bit.

When it was given to me the creator said, if I do not like it I can throw it out, but before I do be sure to open it...and inside was a 20$....

-Some teenage boy's sweaty dew rag (nice gesture, I guess?? ...if it was the most valuable thing he could give away.)
-A huge wad of Honduran cash, which looked great in the buckets. I carried it in my wallet for about 6 months before remembering to exchange it for the equivalent of a large Tim Horton's Coffee. Which was conveniently next door to the exchange place.

Actually, I have to amend that. Tonight, right after I write & complain, a guy gave me his number. No thank you, obviously, but the thought was nice. ^_^
