Here I am, a guy with millions of words already written to chose from, and even I have trouble getting a blog entry posted on a regular basis — trying for “daily” at this point. It’s about self-discipline, having a plan, setting up a work schedule — all those things I seem to suck at.

Don’t examine comedy too close so you kill it in my heart and mind, rather than leaving it to be a force of nature, an instrument of grace: Humor is how we spread the WORD! The WORD is holy-of-holies, being the only sure instrument we now have to preserve and pass on our hard-won knowledge.
That said, here are some things I find funny:
- Having to go to the bathroom, number one
- Having to go to the bathroom, number two
