The worst thing I can have right now is a blank blog page staring at me in the face waiting for me to be funny...this blog is after all, comedy-focused. Hi, my name is Melissa and I'm funny. It's like people in AA; they get up and do the whole' Hi my name is' blah blah blah. That's probably why Jane Lynch was in AA for so many years...she was probably trying to avoid blogging!

I'm not a big drinker but I am addicted to comedy. It happened somewhere between 18 and the age I am now. It just happened and I only wonder why I ended up loving comedy and not alcohol. Kidding...not really. I actually used to think people who drank before noon had a problem but I get it.

I'm babbling...ugh. Let's be honest for a minute. As you read this blog post, do you want more? Will you keep coming back? I know I'm not Tina Fey, her skin is too clear. I'm not Ellen, I'm straight. Damn! How can I get people to really, really notice me for my comedy writing skills besides writing and filming all my original content that I post on YouTube? (  I don't think my mom will be on a show with me like Kathy Griffin's mom. She really added a lot to that show, by the way...a boozing old lady always gets good ratings.  Maybe there is hope for me yet, though it may take 40 or 50 years- not to mention a whole crapload of Skinnygirl Margaritas!

But seriously, funny women-  truly funny women are rare. There are not too, too many in the world but I think I can be funny with the best of them.  In fact I'm sure of it. Just like I'm sure that Kim Kardashian couldn't come up with a name for her baby after she gave birth, so she did what any other first time mother would do- she asked for a compass. 

Is this thing on? You guys are great, thanks for stopping by! Until we meet again, put your feet up and have a good stiff one...unless your pregnant. If you're with child just have a Coke and perhaps ponder the name Melissa if it's a girl, just sayinl!  Xoxo
