Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

I Thought It Was Awfully Quiet Around Here…

Hey, kids.

Nothing entertaining at the moment — just checking in to apologize to any of you who might have tried leaving me a comment in the past couple of days. It seems that one of my anti-comment-spam measures was a tad too aggressive, and basically shut down commenting by anyone around here for a while.

(In other words, I goofed. And maybe to you, that’s as entertaining as anything else I’ve written here. Poopyhead. Nyah.)

Anyway, I’ve fixed it for now, and I’ll keep a closer eye on things in future. Maybe I’ll even come up with a way to solve the problem for good. But I doubt it — I don’t really do ‘permanent solutions’, you know? Where’s the challenge in that?

So, I’m off again. I’ll post my standup clip from Wednesday night’s show soon — ooh, and dates for a couple more shows I’ve lined up, too. In the meantime, I expect to see all those comments that you’ve been clamoring to send for the past forty-eight hours or so — plus a comment on this post, to remind me what an assbrain I am for screwing the script up in the first place. Meh. Weekend, where is thy sweet sting?

    this is my first time here…i know a comment from a stranger isn’t as good as one from a friend, but tell that to the recipient of a stray bullet and to that they’d say, “…” cause they’re dead just the same. hmm.

  2. gees, what’s your problem? not the brightest bulb in the box, eh? not the sharpest tool in the shed, are ya mister…


    Feel better?

    Hey, thanks, guys!

    And now, to fight a new wave of spam-related ickyness, I’ve gone and made yet another change. So I’m testing the new setup with this comment. Imagine how screwed up I’ve got it now! Woo hah!

    Have you thought of hiring the Rube Goldberg web design firm? ‘Cause it might be less complicated…
