There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Does this surprise anybody at all?

You Should Be a Joke Writer

You're totally hilarious, and you can find the humor in any situation. Whether you're spouting off zingers, comebacks, or jokes about life...You usually can keep a crowd laughing, and you have plenty of material. You have the makings of a great comedian - or comedic writer.

Just so happens I'm reading a book called "The Comic Toolbox" that I bought for a class a few years ago.

Today was an OK day. I had a lot of interruptions...first, the client had an all-hands meeting at 9 AM, so I started at a little after 8 and had an hour and a half off later. The rest of the day, they had a meeting in the room next to mine, meaning that I had to hold it down, because they couldn't hear one another over me. (Did I happen to mention that I'm working in a conference room in a manufacturing plant? I've been dodging forklift trucks all week, and I've had at least two women from the shop floor hit on me.)

Big TV night: Out of Practice is back, and Criminal Minds and CSI: NY are both new. (One of my dream writing projects is to do the script from which CSI: Chicago is launched.)

Anyway...I'm going to hang out for a while, then turn this off and turn on the TV.

TWO women? John, it must be just awful for you. I can only imagine.

It is amusing to watch how local employees try their luck with visitors from out of town. Of course, the only ones who ever hit on me were those with extremely low self esteem. And then it usually went over my head and somebody had to clue me in.

So were these to be two sequential dates, or someting a little more kinky?

No, it was more like they struck up a conversation and did a lot of smiling and eye-batting. Could have been completely innocent, although I doubt it.
