Do It Tonight: Open Mic Nights

Alas, it's Monday. The dreaded day inevitably arrives and smacks upside the face with the "not again" blues.

Let this moaned-about, cheesy-office-poster-and-mug-sloganized chunk of 24 hours symbolize something great. Let it further your emancipation from mediocrity by trying out that comedy routine you wrote a while back, you know the one that is infinitely funnier than those cliche-ridden shticks trotted out on Comedy Central. Dust off the acoustic guitar. Perform those songs that are way more insightful and witty and nowhere near as whiny as the weird ponytail dude at the local coffeehouse.

Let Monday be your Open Mic Night.

And if you don't have anything you need to try out. Attend one of the local Monday open mics and cheer on the folks who do.
