A Bit About Me

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".

The Heart of the Matter

Well, it seems I haven't written in an eon.

Oh, I was going to - but each night around 10ish I just got sleepy and toddled off to bed without even the aid of my trusty friend, Ambien. This, of course, if you know anything about me, was not my "normal" routine. My normal routine was anything but normal: I would stay up until my daughter went off to school, I would then proceed to take my Ambien and sack out until it was time to pick her up. Oh...yes, sometimes...most times...I would take half my Ambien in the hope of getting tired, but I would just binge eat - and that, in turn, would make me stay awake even longer (the more food you have in your body - the slower the Ambien takes to kick in) - and then I would take more Ambien after she went off to school and then I'd semi-pass out until around 2:00 p.m., wake up and feel like something the cat drug in (yes, "drug" is the word I'm emphasizing here...so keep your proper grammar knit-picking to yourselves - it was intentional).

Anyway...far be it from me to complain (insert "massive whole-hearted belly laugh" sound effect here) - but I didn't have the energy to stay awake to write a blog...much less anything really for that matter...and things I've promised myself I'd do - fell by the proverbial wayside. But...I'm back...and with a vengeance! "Grrrrr!" Okay...that was silly...but I'm almost famous for being silly...so I ran with it.

I have this whole concept of "all things medical" to do up in a two...or three-parter blogumn. Unfortunately, for you, the readers, I will also, undoubtedly, tend to dwell on my own mortality for some of it. Perhaps not as much as I originally intended, so I will indeed spare you my latest [past] current whine-fest. But, there's a method to my madness...and if you stick around, you just might see what it is. :)

But...I am back - just wanted everyone who took the time to ask about me...I am indeed still alive - and I will be writing again very, very soon...perhaps even tonite...if I can muster up the fortitude to stay awake past 10:00, that is.


  1. Good to see you again! Looking forward to "the rest of the story".

  2. I highly recommend Ambien if you need help falling asleep. I always buy it from WWW.MEDSHEAVEN.COM no prescription required. MF
