Great T Shirt Idea

I was watching a 30 Rock the other night, and thought this piece of advice from Alec Baldwin’s character who was listening to Liz Lemon tell an exhausting story about her brief mis-adventure with a has-been writer.

He had this hilarious line, which should be a t-shirt.

“Never follow a hippy to a second location.”

I love that line.

What, this is not “Toilet Humor”!!

So I was checking the referral logs of my blog and found a few people came in through the search term, “toilet humor”. blogref.pngWhat, how can this be?I did not optimize my blog for this term!  Is my link reputation preceding me?

Drunk Dialing (Cringe)

I went out on Halloween with a friend of mine from high school (I’m in NYC now).

He skipped dinner and consequently got pretty drunk.

I left the party early so I could work the next day.

When I checked my voicemails the next day, there were nine voicemails from him.

But the story gets worse.

He doesn’t remember calling me.

Or the woman from his acting class who left him a voicemail the next day that said, “So, you left me a message last night when you were drunk and I think we need to talk about it.”

Cringe.

He’s scared to call her and find out what, exactly, he said.

Like Mike Episodes = Fiction

One thing I realize I need to clarify is that the adult topics in the Like Mike series are all fiction, as we were conjuring story lines for a cable show.

The idea was to make it so racy that the show would have shock value.

I probably shouldn’t have used myself as a character in the fictional scene in the strip clubs (sorry mom!).

If I Could Only Write for The Onion

In about ’96, I wrote a letter to The Onion notifying them of my intent to submit freelance articles. It seemed like such a natural fit. I was bummed when I found out (I think they may have written me back, not sure) that they do not accept submissions:

The Onion
Why the hell would they have that policy? Think of all the freaks out there who would finally have a place to focus their freak?

Ok, so, pieces I would have written:

I would have given out an annual “Lifetime Underachievement Award”.

Being that I do SEO, I’d have written a futuristic piece:

“People Finally Find Everything; Google Declares Bankruptcy”.
