I think I may try taking some stand-up comedy classes this year, see if I'm any good. Or maybe I should try to just write funny books.

As a test of my funnyness, I have anonymously published my previous essay on The Horror of Online at the craiglist site, which has become my new favorite source for bizzarre and surrealistc humor. It has some sad stories too. Not for the faint of heart, though.

If you think it is funny, or interesting, you have the opportunity to vote for its immortalization by clicking on the "Best Of" Button and flagging it as witty prose.

My next installement, which I will run by you guys will tell the story of my epic journey home with my mail order bride from the dark, third world country known as Iowa.

I'm thinking of calling it:

"Clinton, Iowa: You Can Check Out Any Time You Like, But You Can Never Leave."

WD,

That was brilliant. I can't say that I am as well rounded with the english language or the structure of my grammar, but I have to say absoulutely 100% brilliant writing and not to mention funny. I enjoyed the read tremendously. I must say you do show the intellect within your writing.

Luv2

luv2,

Thanks so much for the encouragement. To me, the life would be pretty...lifeless without Love, Creativity, and Humor....putting them all together seems the way to go.

I know, some people would think it a kind of...dumb thing to want to be funny...but life is funny. It had better be funny.

WD,

I get what you are saying. And I think it shows a strenght to step back and be able to laugh at some of the things that life throws our way. I think you were able to do that based on your online dating experience. I think most people would have handle a few of the situations you did in a very different demeanor. You do have a gift of writing and bring out a good humor to every day life and I hope that you will continue that. Keep it up and let me know if you post any more, I would love to read it. I think that is one of lifes most useful thing, laughter... Thanks

Much Luv,
Luv2

I read and it was great. I had forgotten how to vote so I wrote it down and will go back and give you my humble vote. You are good; I must say that.

Congrats and I think that class will be a great step for you toward whatever you wish to do. Besides.... learning never hurt anywon did it.

Thanks, luv, mamaC,

I realize that I am not a Richard Pryor or Henny Youngman or Robin WIlliams type of funny person.

Seems like I more lean to wit and slightly befuddled irony. Maybe I should try more pie in the face stuff....?

WD: Great idea. You did one once along the lines of how many Codeps does it take to screw in a lightbulb that was pretty darn funny too.

WD

Extremely hilarious! Internet dating is pretty scary! My husband is currently on some sites saying he is "divorced" and he still does not have everything out of our house from moving out 4 weeks ago! I haven't even gotten the money to file! I heard a statistic that 30% of people on-line are MARRIED. They don't usually say they are either!

I actually met two men on line back in 2000 that were actually quite cool. It did not pan out and then I met my husband.

I think that your essay would definately work as a monologue. It was very well written - it was a great range of funny experiences that are unfortunately are not too far from the truth!

Eek!

I think that a good way to check on potential dates is to see if they are in any personal on-line ads. If they are.............run!

This is the only site I am a member of - oh, and I joinged a single parent meet to see if I could swap some services (piano lessons) in exchange for yardwork and other things I don't have very much knowledge of (like framing).

I am not going to do on-line dating. No way!
