Dear Melissa: You Suck at Blogging. Love Always, Me

Not posting a new blog in over two months makes me sad for many reasons:

1. The last post on here was of that dude that called me fat. Whoa negative vibes!

2. Because Rosie O'Donnell told me I'd be a comedy writer, dammit, so why the fuck am I not comedy writing??!

3. The very reasons I lost interest in both comedy and writing.

To expand on number 3, I should fill you in on my life since I got back from California: getting layed off, being depressed about getting layed off, not having a job, looking for a job, still looking for a job, trying not to die. Repeat for 4 months.

Frankly, I haven't felt funny in a long time. My focus completely shifted from "I have a lovely day job where I have the freedom (and recreational internet) to pursue my true goals and objectives" to "Find a job RIGHT NOW so that you don't die and have to give up your apartment, furniture, and life in Toronto to live on a day bed in your parent's RV".

Exactly. I don't think anyone could be funny with that kind of hurricane blowing through Lifeville.

Not that things are much better now, really. The only difference being I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel and I think I'm quite close to narrowing in on what I want to do for the foreseeable future and in so doing avoiding the day bed and the life-giving-upping.

Of course, moving to LA is not out of the picture; it's just delayed slightly. I'm pushing the move date back by a year so that I can get myself organized (read: debt payed down). To that end, I've placed an embargo on travelling this year, so you can expect my handy and oft-used "oh the places i go" label to be more or less retired for a while. Thankfully the embargo does not include roadtrips (I'm going, in fact, to Illinois this weekend!) so I'll trot it out for those special occasions.

Another reason I haven't been around as much is because something (or someone) else has monopolized my attention: I have a new/old boyfriend! He's been dying for me to mention him here (even though he no longer creeps my blog and probably won't realize I've said anything about him for weeks), so here goes: Nick Jones has stolen my heart and even though he was supposed to call me like 2 hours ago, I love him enough to mention him on my blog for all my readers (if I have any left...) to read about.

Coincidentally, my other Boyfriend has been in town filming his new movie. I may have run into the film set one or three times. Totally coincidentally.


Anways, blog-friends. Hopefully this upswing means I'll be back to stay for a while. And hopefully it means you'll be back too.

Happy spring!


PS If you see my boyfriend (either one) tell him to fucking call me already!!
