Thank you, come again!

If you're reading my blog, chances are you are either here by mistake and are now hitting the "Back" button, or more likely, you clicked on the link at

Either way, welcome! Thanks for visiting. I have received so many nice comments. I want to share a few:

"Nice blog."
"Very funny."
"Have you considered working from home, or maybe getting a debt consolidation loan?"

Hey, I am NOT above seeing spam as validation of my creative choices. Anyway.

I will continue to meander along, alternating between serious reflection, humorous reflection, and just plain-old humor. I hope you will continue to stop by occasionally, even if it's just to make sure I know where I can get low cost Viagra on the internet.

you're just not that funny :(

So anon, you are entitled to your opinion but one has to wonder why someone would go out of their way to make a negative comment that is directed toward something quite significant to someone else? Not that they probably care about some anonymous jab on the internet but still. It makes me wonder about someone's motive when they go out of their way to put someone else down...and anoymously. Well, I'm certainly not going to waste any more time wondering about you. Hope you have a good day. You get back what you put out there.

Why wish him/her a good day?

Who cares?

I like your blog (esp as a guy who did his first open mic a few weeks ago)

Kliph good to see you.

You are really, really not alone in thinking that. And that is okay.

Even the best comedians don't please all of the people all of the time.

Some people like Chris Rock; some people like Larry the Cable Guy. Even the people who like them don't like 100% of their material.

I admire comedians who talk about what they find funny. Bill Hicks talked about what he wanted to talk about, and made no apologies for it. Not everyone liked it, but many people did.

I'm trying to figure out what I find funny, what I want to talk about. If you find it funny, great; if not, that's okay too.

it's not just that you're funny, it's that you're very honest. there's something pretty heartfelt in your writing that i find endearing.

(am i alllowed to say that here?)

Funny blog, now how bout that discounted Viagra. I know it's called Fiagra, but hey, it kinda works!

Undr(I don't feel so good)

BTW Anon, Shut your pie hole!

That's the same anonymous 'person' that has stopped by my site in the past to leave disparaging remarks. I've since disallowed anonymous

Being funny and writing funny are two very different things. I'm a very funny person in real life but am still finding my wings when it comes to writing that way.

That's something K does quite well and I'm sure you will too, when you find your niche. It looks to me like you're well on your way! Keep it up!

Thanks, Dan. This blog isn't necessarily meant to showcase what a funny writer I am. The main purpose, for me, is to write about the process I am going through. To me it is less about being funny, and more about being real. And on this score, K is very, very good, and one of the reasons her writing is so enjoyable.

hey i'm glad i came across your blog...i think you're funny. i'll have to come back another time to read your archives. you ever come out to San Francisco (no pun intended) for gigs?

I think that making people laugh is a noble profession. I wish I were brave enough to even attempt an open mic night. Good luck with your journey.

I teach preschool, and my students say I'm "silly," which I guess means "freaken hilarious" in kid-speak. . . . Anything to keep them from kicking my shins.

I agree completely. If a person is able to write the same way they 'are' in real life, like K and yourself, then invariably it becomes entertaining simply because it's a direct reflection of who you truly are.

I'm enjoying your blog more and more and eventually I may even link to it! heehee

Just kidding, I'll link to it anyway. We have to help each other out!
