Dear Jimbo:

This note is to let you know that I’ve decided to take the day off.

Am I sick? Well, that’s sort of half of the problem. I’m sick and tired of being called upon damned near every farookin’ day at all hours of the day and night (and weekends too) to come up with stuff that doesn’t stink for your crummy blog.

Benefits? Forget it. You provide zero, zip, nada. Hell, I don’t even get a goddamned footnote for the occasional times I hit a long ball for you. You just wanna sit around drinking all sorts of spirits and hang with the Usual Suspects while I do all the heavy lifting around here, for absolutely no money, no benefits, no recognition and no goddamned respect. Hell, an illegal alien wouldn’t take this gig.

I may even take tomorrow off. And, maybe even the next day and the day after that. Waddya gonna do then, Mr. Great Farookin’ Hair? Post one of those “What Kind of Festering Pustule are You?” quizzes?


Very truly yours,

Your Muse


  1. roses… a nice dinner with wine… chocolate vodka.
    all better.

    oh, wait… maybe that’s MY wishlist.

  3. I have a muse… no one wants to hear it.

    Yours is on strike… and everyone wants to hear it.

    I’d ask if you wanted to borrow my muse for a while – but then everyone would stop reading you. So you can’t win. *grin*

  4. Wait a second — do you have one of those External Muses that’s not actually inside of your body? I figured bobbing in Ken’s pool, drinking Ketel One, and sinking into the mooshiness of Mr. Recliner’s embrace was your way of pampering your muse.

    And when you get a chance, since you brought it up first, I was just wondering what color do you think your toenails should be.

  5. Not to imply that my muse is more kickass than yours, but my muse went to the gun range and shot the hell out of a paper target yesterday while yours was writing you a nice note.

  6. Dear Jimbo:
    I found you another alligator story for your files:

    Reggie the Alligator Manages to Escape From His New Home at the LA Zoo, but Is Recaptured
    Thursday, August 16, 2007 03:37:03 AM

    You can’t keep a good gator down. An alligator that became a celebrity after eluding trappers for nearly two years at an urban lake managed to escape from his new home at the Los Angeles Zoo on Wednesday. It was nearly opening time before Reggie was caught.

    Keepers discovered the 7 1/2-foot gator was missing from his personal exhibit pond at around 7:30 a.m., and a search of every rock and bush proved he wasn’t anywhere in the display.

    The full article can be read at:
