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".

Day 11: Succubus

"I tell ya, she comes in the night and steals my breath."
"No, she doesn't, honey...you just didn't use your CPAP machine again."


Okay...that's my entry for Day 11 on We Work for Cheese's "30 Minus 2 Days of Writing" thingy -- the prompt being "Succubus".



(Kelsey Grammer and Bebe Neuwirth as Frasier and Lilith in "Frasier") 

As a side note:  Whenever I think of the word "succubus" (and I think of it more times than you'd imagine) I think of Lilith (the name of Frasier's ex-wife played by Bebe Neuwirth), and then I think of "Frasier" and then I get very, very sad because (in my opinion) it was THE best comedy show ever written and the creator/writer, and driving force behind the show, David Angell, was senselessly killed when the plane he was aboard struck the first Twin Tower in the 9/11 tragedy.  Such a waste...such a complete and utter waste of so many lives that day.
 
So, I will stop thinking of that and return to watching "Men's Curling" going on right now in Sochi, Russia, at the Winter Olympics.

Did I mention that I
love the Olympics?

    1. I'll come to you at night, dear Dufus. I'll steal your breath away, and then I'll go for the silverware and electronics.

  7. Frasier was a great show and I always loved the Lilith character. It was hysterical when she and Niles had a fling.
