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 Think We Know Which Is Funnier, Don’t We?

Hey, all.

Not really a post, I’m afraid — I just wanted to let you know that last night’s set is up. (Since Joe was kind enough to ask… and go check Joe out at Play By Play, dammit; you could learn something from him!)

As for me, I’m off to play volleyball wearing just one contact lens.

(Okay, that’s ‘just one lens‘, as opposed to two lenses, not ‘just one lens‘ in lieu of all other clothes. I’m seriously thinking of wearing pants for this. And not just because of the bruises I gave myself last time. I’ve really got to be more careful diving for the ball.)

So there’s your choice of image, folks. Picture me — and see me, in living color — doing standup in front of exactly one audience member last night, or try to imagine me running around half-blind tonight on the court, getting bonked on the head with the ball and running into the net every twelve seconds.

Holy shit, how jealous are you people right now, eh? There’s not one of you who wouldn’t trade your life and two fistfuls of cash just to live in my shoes. No, you don’t even have to say it — I can tell by that horrified, pitying look you’re pretending to have right now. You’re not fooling anyone, you know. You’re just aching to get your hands on a little piece of this life. Yeah, I know. It’s cool.

So, anyway, I’m off. Assuming I don’t suffer a horrible car crash or ear-bleeding head trauma, I’ll be back later to squint my way through a real post for you. Man, it’s been a crazy week. I’m just looking forward to the weekend — maybe I can regroup and get off this frickin’ merry-go-round. I’m looking forward to that. Oh, and seeing again. Yeah, that’d be nice, too. Baby steps, people… baby steps.

    Dammit Charlie! You scared the crap out of me! I wasn’t prepared for the link tonight!

    Do you realize if I get even 1/10th of the people that hit your site to come over to my site, it’ll crash blogspot???

    Oh wait…no it won’t.

    Anyway…next time, give a guy some warning before you do that! (link to him I mean…not that other stuff you were thinking about.)

    (Actually…it was a good exercise for me. So thanks!)

    Naked One-Eyed Volleyball? I’m there.
