Conversation with someone at Impact Hub while we were setting up for our Strangerville Live show:
Woman: What's all this for?
Eli: Oh, it's for a storytelling show happening tomorrow.

Woman: The Moth!?!
Eli: No. It's called Strangerville Live.
Woman: Oh. Is that like The Moth?
Eli: Kind of. It's a show I started in conjunction with my blog.
Woman: Oh? What's your blog about?
Eli: Stuff . . . and things.
Woman: But is it like a cooking blog? Or a sports blog? Or a blog about politics? Or a home improvement blog?
Eli: Yes.
Woman: Yes to what? What kind of blog is it?
Eli: It's just kind of about everything and nothing. And Tami and The Queen of Colors and stuff.
Woman: Who's T--
Meg and Jolyn: DON'T ASK HIM.
Woman: So you are putting on a show in conjunction with a blog that's about everything and nothing?
Eli: Exactly! Hope you can make it!
