The New Year is coming the New Year coming.......

“I thought we weren’t exchanging gifts.”

“We’re not.”

“Then what’s in the box?”

“It’s a pre we’re not giving gifts gift.”

“Uh huh…It’s a pretty small box, what did you do?”

“Sweetheart I saw these before we made our no exchanging gifts deal and I thought they’d look great on you.” (Note the word “saw”, a technicality maybe but it gets me off the hook)

“Diamond earrings? Oh my god they’re beautiful…… Thank you honey….you really shouldn’t have.”

“I know… sometimes I’m just stupid that way.”

Men, we can do a lot of dumb things in our lives but diamond earrings almost always gets you at least a two point conversion out of trouble.

Plus they look good on her.

Last night I went to The Holiday Bowl.

Oregon versus Oklahoma.

San Diego has been filled for a week with people from one group that can’t seem to drive over 45 miles and hour and people in pickup trucks with gun racks with horns that vaguely sound like “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU”.

It was last years Holiday Bowl that gave me the idea to start this blog.

I wanted to find a fun way to continue to write new material, which is always a pain for comedians. We love performing we hate writing.

I figured I’d write this for a year and then once I got into the habit of creating new material I’d stop the blog and just write the material for the stage.

Well a funny thing happened on the way to writing…..

I like it.

I like the comments and the e-mails and the feedback.

I admit it…..

I’m an attention whore.

So my New Years resolution is to continue to write and to do my best to make people laugh.


And to lose weight, get in shape, be kind to woodland creatures (unless they taste like chicken), conserve energy, go to church for more than weddings and when people die, recycle and blah blah blah blah blah blah………….

Happy New Year!!!
