The Comedy

I am a professional comedy writer (with a web site). I have been writing since 1995.

I have tried to do other things professionally, such as systems administration, graphic design, etc., but I despise them all with an implacability that evokes geology.

NOTE: I also hate geology.

When I look at my friends, who are also now middle aged, with their IT careers and earning potential and leadership positions and their various industry awards I think — hah! — that must be nice.

The above assumes that I have left the house, an eventuality I neither intend nor foresee.
