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".

01 March 2013

Hit me with your lowest shot...



I was served divorce papers yesterday. 

Is that all there is to it?

No "Hey, guess what...I'm going to file for divorce - heads up notice for ya - start saving money to find yourself a lawyer like I've been doing as I've known I was going to do this for a while..." kinda thing? 

So, yep.  That is all there is to it after nearly 27 years.

I have 30 days to totally get my act together and reply.  Well, less than 30 now.  So, in about as much time as this contest ran - is all I have. 





Please go on over to "We Work for Cheese" to see the other (probably much longer) blogs than this one.  This is the last day to do it as the 28 day challenge is over!

  1. Same thing happened to me after 27 years of marriage. (Makes me think this post is about me.) Except that I ended up being the one to start the divorce proceedings after being told he didn't want to be married to me anymore because he wanted to be with someone else. (And then he was "shocked" that I filed for divorce. Go figure.) Good luck with that Mariann! Sending virtual hugs and support!

  2. Well, I knew it would happen "eventually" - he's been out of the house for like five years now...but it could not come at a worse time as I've had some "issues" with my butt and hopefully I will not need surgery...and my daughter has chronic nausea and has been missing a buttload (yes, pun) of days at school and she's a senior in high school. She was ranked 2nd in her class - she fell to 3rd because of getting a couple B's, which are probably still A's as they are AP and Honours classes...but they are saying they will have to throw her out of school if she misses X more days. So...seriously, I'm sure this upset her (altho she's always saying she's not stressed) and he could have waited two months. What was two more months? Honestly. This is just not nice.

    1. My son was also in high school when my husband/his dad left. People discount how upsetting it is for older kids, but it's perhaps even more devastating when they know exactly what's going on. I'm keeping you and your daughter in my thoughts!
