I'm not into it today.

Bill, Sorry I missed you. Lately I hate when alot of things happen, but Born to Slack helps when I find it. I am the crazy lady with the dog who yelled out the window of my Honda "I know you from TV" while you were walking by Hawthorne Fred Meyer last week. What I want to tell you is that if that is your song at the end of the show, you have stolen my heart. I can't seem to open your profile, so consequently don't know if this is appropriate, but here goes... I would enjoy a cup of coffee with you. if that's okay I am at janmess1@peoplepc.com. Let me know.

And these posts beg the question as to when Bill's going to suggest another get-together with his faithful blog followers.

Pizza anyone?

Thanks for the kind words. That is my song, "Let's Leave Iraq", and so is the theme music.
I can sing but only if there's a couple of real singers singing along with me, so that's what happened there. However, my slide guitar has held up better than I thought it would, even after that song's been played like 50 times on cable access.
My brother did the video.
Thanks again for the kind words.

I'm in the "write more" camp but then I don't do standup so it's not a livlihood thing.
I used to go down to the clubs for open mike, and one day I was talking to a comedian on the phone. See, I don't sit around and slam my head against the wall writing this stuff. It just falls out, which is why I can write dozens and dozens of jokes a day fast.
I told the comedian I was a recovering workaholic and that it wasn't easy. I take things one sofa at a time. Maybe someone else has written something similar, who knows? Anyway, i went to the club and the comedian was doing the bit as I came through the door. Awkward!
I also remember one time when I wrote a joke I was pretty sure was mine that went on national TV. When I was told it wasn't I said are you sure? They said they got 12 versions of the joke. So we're not talking lightning bolts from heaven here.
One way I stay ahead is by doing topical stuff. I also survive by letting the shock jocks have the crude stuff while I go for funny in a more innocent way.
It sounds like that Northwest airline pilot they caught on cocaine had a pretty bad problem. Even the nose of his airplane was bleeding.

The latest theory is that the bees are disappearing because of cellphones. That shows how dumb I am, I didn’t even know they talked on cellphones.

As you might have suspected neither of those jokes sold.

Yikes, I just published a comment on the wrong post. Oh well, it still sort of works. In fact, I might start doing more of this.
There's your blog comedy idea: Take a hundred comments and just put them after any post in random order.
