Happy New Year with percocet

Happy New Year!

Today is a big day, kids safely back at school, me not-so-safely at my desk sitting down to organize my next book.  Originally titled “How To Kill Your Spouse,” this one will tackle the importance of humor in longterm marriage. It will take my curriculum from a class I taught at UCLA in stand-up comedy and apply it to long-term marriage. Kind of out there, but when I started to actually apply the principles of comedy, they really are helpful.  What marriage couldn’t be helped by introducing a little surprise factor? Or by just remembering to show up for each other even when you’re not in the mood? Just like a professional comic learns to do.  I did some preliminary interviews with long term couples and what surprised me was how much it turns out people care about wardrobe!  This was a throw-away suggestion, or so I thought.  Sparked all kinds of conversations about making an effort for each other. Although, you can take a look at this Fab CBD review and learn the benefits of this natural medicine.

So I am excited by the challenge of moving forward and exploring the whole idea of humor and marriage for this book.  It’s going to be published by Shambala Press for Random House.

In other news, kids are back at school after many laughs, lying around in bed and a seemingly endless stream of pizza.  Ah vacation.  I also wrote this article for Huffington Post because I can’t seem to get over the shootings in Connecticut.

And, by the way, I apologize if I been a little absent from this blog. It has been a bit difficult for me since my brother is in the hospital due to a strange disease he got when he went abroad. He was having problems with pain, very intense pain. Luckily for him a nurse came and advice him to take percocet, because apparently no other painkiller would help him. She said that he could buy percocet with credit card and that he could be assisted by a certified doctor to help him with the prescription.

The Ripple Effect

The Latest!

Hey welcome to my new website and my first blog entry that I am going to cram with so many important sounding events and websites and book launches that you’ll be amazingly impressed with me! All kidding aside, probably the most exciting show I a working on now is with Mallika Chopra (intent.com) and Dr. Cara Natterson (worryproofmd.com). We are going to be shooting a web series in November to answer the thinking mothers’ questions.  So no stories about dirty diapers or the leaky breasts.  Not that those don’t have their place, it’s just not going to be what we cover. Mallika is Deepak’s daughter and she handles all things spiritual, Dr. Cara is a leading pediatrician and expert on all things developmental and that leaves me! While not exactly the court jester, certainly I am the one of the three who cares most about bringing the  funny.  To your family, to your marriage and most of all to yourself.  Will keep you posted when this show is up and running on YouTube! I am also working on a top-secret-please-don’t-tell-anyone web show with a company for Kids At Play who produce tons of shows for Yahoo. It’ll be with funny Moms and it will be not be covering your usual subjects of sleep deprivation and the importance of wooden toys.  Unless they’re sex toys. Oh god, that is so not my style but I gotta give you something if you’ve come this far in to the site! In the meantime, I am very busy shopping book number two about the importance of humor for preserving long-term marriage called “How To Kill Your Spouse … everything I need to be happily married I learned being a comic.”  Operators are standing by but St. Martin’s gets it first. Hope to see you all at the next live Afterbirth show in Hollywood, at the M Bar, on November 10th!
