Twenty-five years of being lost, going down the wrong road, laughing it off, faking a smile, and then writing about it.

I was born and raised in Connecticut and recently graduated from Cal. State, Fullerton . . . what happened in between all of that, will bleed through my entries.

What will happen after?  Well . . .

. . . I’ll let you know.

I’m not sure where I’m going, but if you’d like to tag along, I know some good jokes . . . kinda.

Do blondes really have more fun?

You put a bandaid on a gun shot wound and expect it to heal.
You expect it to stop hurting, just by covering it up.
You expect all of the pain to go away.
You expect your hair to start growing in blonde instead of brunette.
And that simply
isn’t
going
to happen.
