M’kay Curlfriends, Prolly about an hour ago I promised you a photo recap of my 2015. Because if you don’t already know, this is now a tradition I do so that I can remind myself that I am indeed doing *something* with my life and also so I can remind myself how young and pretty I once was.*
So, with just a tad further adieu, I give you, Courtney McClean (& The Dirty Curls too, of course)’s 2015, in pictures, which if you follow me on Instagram, it’s likely you’ve already seen:
Drove to CA from MN. And stayed there.
Sean Bernard, AKA Timid Guy, AKA one of my favorite people, and a producer of the Twin Cities Hit Show podcast.
Choreographed my first dance since like, high school.
Started doing the El Cid open mic really regularly.
I lived in Minnesota for almost 8 years!
I look classy because I just married comic Brandon Reynoso to his wife Molly.
Finally made that vagina tip jar
Photobombing my own picture of Bill Corbett.
The Twin Cities’ Rockstar Storytellers! We stopped doing our regular shows, but we’re still pals.
The man in this picture is my friend Kyle, who passed away in December. We’ll miss him terribly. (Gold-suited lady is the fabulous Morgan, still alive and kickin)

I performed on the Inner Sanctum stage
Some sexy place somewhere in this gorgeous country, across which I drove, from MN to CA, in two days. Not recommended.
