    So Mat … did you go to the show? I would like to know what I missed since I attended another show … I go to 3-4 shows a week … how about you?

  2. I have been told that I have a poor grasp on the fine line between the two.

    I did not go to the show. I’m not a huge Peter Murphy fan. I’m also not in Asheville.

    I do not find your posts interesting, funny, or clever … but this is just me

  4. I’m sorry. I try very hard to make sure that every single comment I post could easily pass a rigorous and thorough test of its ability to entertain and/or inform before I hit submit.

    This process often includes consulting with my team of trained Guatemalan comedians, who also double as my dance squad when times are lean, but sometimes they give me bad advice. I am coming to understand that the general national humor of Guatemala is somewhat drab compared to the robust humor of Ecuador. Or even Finland.

    So, I suppose it’s time to go down to the basement and wake up the guys and tell them the show’s over. They go back to what they were doing before, which I think had something to do with golf courses or beauty salons. Not sure which. I don’t think they know themselves.
