Not every guy is a predator.  Not every girl is a slut.

All black people aren’t lazy.  All white people aren’t racists.

All Asians aren’t bad drivers.  Nor are they all good at math.

Not all white/Asian guys have small penises.  Not all black guys are packing.

Why are racial stereotypes out there?  Where’d they come from?  Some are positive, most are negative.  Here’s the thing…  We need to ignore them.  I know people use them because it makes it easier to make a decision about people.

I like watermelon and fried chicken.  And I have a big weiner. 😀

He reached down to pick the sock up the floor.  He back started to spasm before he even was a 10 percent decline.  ‘Nope, not gonna happen’ he thought.  He went to reach for it with his toes.  He scrunched it up under his big toe and had a good grasp on it.  He made several attempts to throw it up to his hand to no avail.  He finally decided to put the sock on the armrest of the couch.  He was able to grab it from there.  He then realized he couldn’t put it on his foot. GOD DAMMIT!

Teamwork is defined as ‘the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.’  I am thankful that this is true.

I have recently taken over the hosting duties of a monthly talk show.  And while this may not seem like much, it takes up a LOT of time.  We schedule guests, plan bits, work on videos, write jokes, make lists and more.  It is not just about talking to people.

And I have to admit I am a moron.  My technical skills are poor.  Thankfully I have a great team around me to make things work!

One day that dog is gonna die of sleep.  All it does is lie on the bed, couch, chair and sometimes the floor and sleep.  If it didn’t have to get up to go eat or take a dump it wouldn’t.

The owner was fine with that though.  He liked that the dog was low maintenance.  He liked that he didn’t have to do much.  The dog never wanted to go for walks.  It didn’t jump up on him.  They had a connection that way.

He picked up the dog and put him on the bed for one last nap.

Yesterday I talked about jumping through hoops.  I had to jump through a hoop.  Apparently I did not jump high enough.

I did another audition for a booker (I had passed 2 years ago but they wanted to see me again.)  I got 15 minutes.  I got the crowd laughing.  I got applause breaks.  I felt good about it.

I met with the booker and he told me he did not see the ‘Wow!’ factor so they wouldn’t use me again.  Not terribly constructive.

So I drove home the 5 hours disappointed.  I will not let my failures define me.

Sometimes you have to jump through one more hoop.  After you jump through that hoop you need to jump through another.  And then one more hoop.

It is all about the pursuit of comedy.  You need to prove to people that you are funny.  That you got ‘the stuff.’

I’m headed down to Columbus, OH today because I am jumping through one more hoop.  There’s a booker there that a buddy is auditioning for.  Just another hoop.  What you did before doesn’t matter.  You just need to do it.

Hopefully he passes the audition and it is one less hoop.
