A WIN-WIN PROPOSITION!
Hey gang! Aren't I erratic? Don't you get dizzy sometimes reading my blogs?
If it's not politically rabid, it's philosophically heavy. If it's not downright mean, it's filled with self-pity. If it's not dreadfully serious, it's light-hearted and fluffy!
Jeez, don't you wish I could just tell a straight story sometimes?
Well, that's exactly what I want to do. Two stories, in fact. You may remember in the blog entry on my anger management counselor where I mentioned having been arrested for assault in July and having spent 30 days on New York state welfare.
Well, I'm writing out those two stories this week before I prepare for my trip to San Francisco. I just started on the assault one and, even though it's a true story, it's tremendously funny! (And that means a lot coming from me, since I never think anything I do is funny!) I'm putting in a lot of background from my teenage years at the beginning of this one and you'll get to meet some of my friends from those days along the way. It's a hilarious story of drunkenness and Midwestern violent tendencies brought to the Big Apple! I'm sure the New York state welfare story will be just as side-splitting.
Anyway, since I mentioned these two stories, there's been a lot of interest from you guys in hearing them.
But these stories are really personal and, although I'd like to tell them, I feel weird about giving them away for free. New York's an expensive place for an artist/author/comedian--whatever it is that I am. So here's my win-win proposition. For a small donation you can get one or both of these stories either e-mailed to you personally or you can be included on a special private list where only paid members can read these stories.
For a donation of $5, you can get your choice of either "The Assault In Union Square Park" or "30 Days On New York State Welfare".
And for $7, you can get BOTH!
All you have to do is click the paypal donate button at the bottom of this entry, make your donation and, if you're going the $5 route, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know whether you want to read "The Assault In Union Square Park" or "30 Days On New York State Welfare"
These are really funny stories and I know you'll enjoy reading them as much I enjoyed living them! The projected completion date for these stories is next Saturday--so be the first one on your block to receive your copies!
Thank you and God Bless! (and rest assured, there will be NO politics or philosophy!)
