I apologize for the delay in this latest blog, I know you’ve been waiting. It’s been a crazy week. The biggest thing is that I’m waiting for someone to get back to me about a business idea. A show business idea. A big show business idea that involves a great deal of risk on my part. Also a little Chutes-And-Ladders and a bit of Uno, but that’s not important right now. The point is that when something this important is happening, it’s tough to remember that it’s not as life-alteringly important to others as it is to you. It’s tough not to cal them and yell “HEY!!! HEY YOU!!! MAKE A DECISION ONE WAY OR THE OTHER OR I’LL PUNCH YOU IN THE SPLEEN AND FORCE YOU TO WATCH ‘DHARMA AND GREG’ UNTIL YOUR IQ DROPS BELOW TWENTY AND YOU SCREAM AT SNAILS!” You know what I mean? Of course you do. Anyway, I know it’s out of my hands and I’ve done all that I can do, but I’m still going a little squirrelly. More than a tad wombatish, too. Oh, and I think Ringo Starr should be hauled in for causing the Tate-LaBianca murders. If you get my drift.
As always, see more of me including TV appearances, promo video and schedule at www.starspangledcomedy.com.
