****NEW STUFF AS OF 6/13/05****

HEY THERE FOLKS! WOW. ONCE AGAIN I HAVE COMPLETELY IGNORED MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION. I SWORE UP AND DOWN THAT I WOULD UPDATE THIS SITE ONCE A MONTH. APPARENTLY, I MEANT ONCE EVERY SIX MONTHS. SORRY ABOUT THAT. BUT THEN AGAIN, WHO AM I REALLY APOLOGIZING TO? I MEAN, IT'S KIND OF HARD TO KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE EVEN READING THIS THING. I CERTAINLY KNOW THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE. I GET EMAILS FROM MANY OF YOU WHO WONDER WHY I UPDATE SO INFREQUENTLY. I GET OTHER EMAILS WHEN I FINALLY DO UPDATE FROM PEOPLE COMMENTING ON WHAT I WROTE. SO, DON'T GET ME WRONG, I KNOW YOU'RE OUT THERE. WHAT AM I EVEN GOING ON ABOUT? WHY DON'T I JUST GET TO THE UPDATE?? YOU KNOW WHAT I'M DOING? STALLING. I'M STALLING BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH TO SAY. SO I FIGURE IF I KEEP WRITING ABOUT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, I'LL FILL UP THE SPACE AND YOU (WHOEVER YOU ARE) WILL THINK I HAVE MUCH MORE TO SAY THAN I ACTUALLY DO. OKAY. STALLING OVER. REAL UPDATE BEGINNING.... NOW!

FIRST, I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO TELL YOU THIS FOR QUITE A WHILE: MY FRIEND CLAUD MANN FROM DINNER AND A MOVIE HAS STARTED A REALLY AMAZING SITE. SEE, CLAUD IS AN INCREDIBLE CHEF WHO ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT WHAT HE'S PUTTING INTO HIS FOOD. HE WOULD ALWAYS SAY ON THE SHOW, "IF YOU'RE USING OLD SPICES, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE USING PENCIL SHAVINGS." I AGREE. SO, HE'S CREATED A SITE WHERE YOU CAN GET FRESH, BEAUTIFUL, HAND-PICKED SPICES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE. AND HE'S BEEN TO ALL THE PLACES WHERE THE SPICES COME FROM! I BELIEVE THERE ARE EVEN DATES ON THE BOTTLES, SO YOU KNOW WHEN THE SPICES ARE NO LONGER EFFECTIVE. SO, HERE'S THE SITE. PLEASE GO THERE AND BUY A LOT OF SPICES. OH! I ALMOST FORGOT! THEY'RE ALL ORGANIC!! (AND THERE'S OTHER COOL STUFF ON THE SITE, TOO. LIKE COOKING TIPS!)

NOW, HERE'S SOME COOL NEWS. I JUST SHOT A SHOW CALLED "REEL COMEDY" FOR COMEDY CENTRAL. IT'S A SPECIAL FOR THE MOVIE "BEWITCHED", AND I GOT TO INTERVIEW SHIRLEY MACLAINE, NICOLE KIDMAN AND WILL FERRELL!! THE SHOW AIRS MONDAY NIGHT, JUNE 20TH AT 8:30. YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS JUST IN CASE. IT WAS SUCH A GOOD TIME. SHIRLEY MACLAINE IS NOW OFFICIALLY MY IDOL. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED SITTING AND TALKING TO HER. AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ABOUT WILL FERRELL. NICEST GUY EVER. ANYWAY, WATCH THE SHOW. I THINK IT'LL BE QUITE FUNNY.

WHAT ELSE CAN I TELL YOU? I'M WRITING A SHOW. I'M TAKING MY TIME WITH IT, BUT HOPEFULLY IT'LL LEAD TO ME PERFORMING ON STAGE SOMETIME BY THE END OF THIS YEAR OR THE BEGINNING OF NEXT YEAR. I USED TO DO A LOT OF SKETCH COMEDY AND I REALLY MISS PERFORMING LIVE. I ALSO MISS WRITING, AS I REALLY HAVEN'T DONE MUCH OF IT IN THE LAST SEVEN YEARS OR SO. SO, I WILL CERTAINLY LET YOU KNOW WHEN THE SHOW IS DONE AND WHEN I'LL BE ON STAGE. YOU LOCALS WILL HOPEFULLY COME SEE IT.

OKAY, THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT FOR NOW. HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL AND THAT YOU'VE ENJOYED MY UPDATE. WHOEVER YOU ARE, PLEASE KNOW YOU ARE APPRECIATED BECAUSE IF YOU WEREN'T READING THIS, I WOULD BE WRITING INTO THIN AIR. IF I CAN BORE EVEN ONE PERSON WITH MY DRONING ON AND ON, THEN THIS WILL HAVE ALL BEEN WORTH IT.

THANKS FOR READING! STAY WELL!

****NEW STUFF AS OF 1/17/05****

HELLO TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE READING THIS. AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'M SURE YOU ALL UNDERSTAND THAT THE HOLIDAYS ARE AN ESPECIALLY BUSY TIME, AND IT WAS DIFFICULT TO UPDATE THE SITE. BUT, HECK, THERE'S ALWAYS SOME EXCUSE!! SO, WHERE TO BEGIN?

MY HUSBAND AND I HAD OUR FIRST THANKSGIVING EVER IN OUR OWN HOME. I THINK IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A LONG TRADITION. MY MOTHER-IN-LAW SHOWED ME HOW TO COOK A TURKEY, MAKE GRAVY, AND STAY CALM WHILE EVERYTHING WAS COOKING! WE HAD A TON OF FOOD AND A WONDERFUL TIME. CHRISTMAS WAS A LITTLE ODDER. WE DROVE TO OREGON FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND HAD TO COME HOME BEFORE CHRISTMAS TO AVOID A SNOW STORM WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE THE DRIVE BACK VERY DANGEROUS. IT TURNED OUT TO BE A GREAT DECISION BECAUSE THE STORM WAS EVEN WORSE THAN PREDICTED. WE DROVE STRAIGHT THROUGH IN 13 HOURS, BOGIE SLEEPING ALMOST THE WHOLE WAY, AND SPENT CHRISTMAS DAY AT HOME. OUR FRIENDS HAD US OVER THAT NIGHT FOR AN AMAZING ITALIAN MEAL, AND CHRISTMAS WAS SAVED! NEW YEARS WAS LOVELY AS WELL. OF COURSE, ALL OF IT INVOLVED WAY TOO MUCH EATING AND SEVERAL EXTRA POUNDS WHICH I AM NOW DILIGENTLY TAKING OFF. I AM ONCE AGAIN LIVING THE "BODY FOR LIFE" LIFESTYLE AND LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT. YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT ON LINE IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A KICK-ASS WAY TO DROP WEIGHT AND BUILD MUSCLE. EW. LISTEN TO ME. SORRY.

OKAY, NOW THE BIG NEWS.

READY?

YOU SURE?

I'M NOT GOING BACK TO DINNER AND A MOVIE. THAT'S RIGHT. I'M DONE. THEY'RE ALREADY AUDITIONING FOR A NEW FEMALE HOST. WEIRD, HUH? IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHY I'M NOT GOING BACK, YOU'D HAVE TO ASK THE GENIUSES AT TBS. THEY'RE APPARENTLY "CHANGING THINGS UP." HERE'S THE THING: MY CONTRACT WAS UP AND IT WASN'T RENEWED. AT FIRST I WAS VERY UPSET. I GOT THE CALL RIGHT AFTER THANKSGIVING. VERY LAME. VERY IMPERSONAL. THEN, THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, THE MORE I REALIZED THAT IT'S A GOOD THING. THIS FREES ME UP TO DO A LOT OF OTHER STUFF. I DID THAT SHOW FOR TWO AND A HALF YEARS, AND THERE'S REALLY NOTHING NEW I COULD GET OUT OF IT. THE GOOD NEWS IS I'M KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH EVERYONE I WORKED WITH, AS THEY'RE ALL WONDERFUL PEOPLE. AND I'M SURE I'LL WORK WITH A LOT OF THEM AGAIN. SO, IT'S REALLY NO BIG THING. I JUST WANTED YOU ALL TO HEAR IT FROM ME, INSTEAD OF TURNING ON THE SHOW A COUPLE OF MONTHS FROM NOW AND WONDERING WHY I'M NOT THERE. AND I'LL KEEP YOU UPDATED ON ANY NEW PROJECTS, SHOWS, ETC.

CRANK YANKERS JUST STARTED ITS NEW SEASON ON COMEDY CENTRAL. I WAS ON THE SEASON PREMIERE, AND WILL HOPEFULLY SHOW UP IN SEVERAL OTHER EPISODES THIS SEASON. THE CRANK YANKERS FIRST SEASON DVD IS OUT AS WELL. THERE ARE A LOT OF FUNNY CALLS ON IT, AND SOME PRETTY COOL BEHIND THE SCENES STUFF, INCLUDING SOME INTERVIEWS WITH YOURS TRULY. YOU CAN ALSO CHECK OUT A COUPLE VOICES I DID ON THE X BOX GAME, OUTLAW GOLF. I THINK IT'S ALSO OUT ON PLAYSTATION 2. ALSO KEEP WATCHING VH1, AS I SHOW UP IN SEVERAL OF THEIR SHOWS: "AWESOMELY BADDER HAIR", "AWESOMELY BADDER GIRLS", "THE TOP 40 VIDEOS OF 2004", "AWESOMELY BADDER FASHION", AND THE UPCOMING "AWESOMELY BAD CAREER MOVES."

I THINK THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR NOW. I HOPE YOU'RE ALL HAVING A WONDERFUL YEAR. MY RESOLUTION IS TO UPDATE AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH. SO, THIS IS IT FOR JANUARY. HOPEFULLY FEBRUARY WILL BE A BIT MORE EXCITING!!!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR CHECKING IN!
