A Bit About Me

My photo
Along with my daily duties as founder and head writer of HumorMeOnline.com, in 2003, I took the Grand Prize in the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest (also known as the "It Was a Dark and Stormy Night" competition). I've also been a contributor to "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and the web's "The Late Show with David Letterman". I also occupy my time writing three blogs, "Blogged Down at the Moment", "Brit Word of the Day" and "Production Numbers"...and my off-time is spent contemplating in an "on again/off again" fashion...my feable attempts at writing any one of a dozen books. I would love to write professionally one day...and by that I mean "actually get a paycheck".

Uncommon Courtesy

Okay, I talk a lot - I know I do...when I talk to someone on the phone or in person, I let them know up-front..."You know, if I start talking to you, I have this tendency to keep talking nonstop for at least an hour - maybe three...so be forewarned". Now, wouldn't it be nice if EVERYONE had the same decency to tell you their faults before they started speaking to you? C'mon, think about it...

"Hi, my name is Harold and I'm a completely boring person...plus I just stop in mid conversation and look off in the distance, like I've run out of my daily quota of words."

"Hi, I talk about my accomplishments...which aren't really that great...but they're better than yours, or so I believe...so I like to go on and on and on and on about them, as I know you really won't ever see me again, but then again I have this same exact conversation over and over again...I know it verbatim but I never get the opportunity to talk to the same person twice, as they avoid me like I wish I'd be able to avoid myself."

So, You've Got a Blog, Too? (Okay, I threw this last one in to see if you were paying attention out there.)
