Small Wonder

I had a great show last night in a theater just outside of Wilmington, Delaware. It took everything I had not to chastise the locals for voting Joe Bidumb into office over and over and over again. But, unlike Janeane Garofalo, I can ignore politics for the sake of good old fashion fun... and by good old fashion fun, I mean dick jokes.

My five new jokes went over really well. Not only am I sticking to my plan of breaking in one new joke per month, but you math majors will also notice that I appear to be ahead by one joke. Five jokes may sound like a lot of material until you realize they've only added about 1 minute and 45 seconds to my act... and that's only because two of them take 30 seconds a piece.

I spent the bulk of yesterday afternoon making travel plans for our trip to the Big Island, Hawaii next month. When folks hear that we're going to Hawaii they say, "Again?" Yes, again! Why not, again? We spent ten days in Oahu last August but, what was supposed to be a romantic 20th wedding anniversary trip, wound up being a family vacation with somebody else's family.

Since May 21 is the 25th anniversary of our first date we've decided to take the trip we really wanted to take in 2009.

Bad economy be damned! Our economic stimulus plan involves buying lots of coconut rum.

I agree with you whole heartedly. The best economic stimulus should involve hard alcohol. Since I lost my job, I've had to back down from Jack Daniels and settle for Evan Williams. Even bourbon is not safe in these times.
