Episodes 2 & 3 in the Can!

December 17, 2013

2

On the weekend of December 7th and 8th, we braved the cold weather and minimal sunlight to shoot episodes 2 and 3 of the MY PARENTS ARE CRAZIER THAN YOURS Web Series. Thanks to you guys, my MPACTY family of supporters (especially you Maureen), I was able to afford just enough to get equipment and […]

“About To Get Some Action” #14

February 7, 2011

The rendezvous was set.  Sunday night in the city I would meet The Indian – the ex who’s been texting and wanting to see me.  Of course deep down I was hoping this was our second chance; that we would resume the lovely relationship I had so missed.  But, for now, and maybe to protect […]

I would take him, but my Dad won’t let me have the car.

My Dad says as I walk in the kitchen, “I’ve renamed your dog ‘The Ass Canon.’  What are you feeding him?” “I…” “–He farts like it’s going out of style.  I don’t have many years left.  I don’t want to live with them with a gas mask.” I’m thinking to myself, I get it.  Dogs […]

“The Guy Who Dumped Me is Texting Me” #9

So, sometime before I got fired from my bullshit day job, I met this guy who was unlike any I had ever dated before.  He was kind, smart, almost a bit nerdy (which I thought was a good thing, since I’d always had a penchant for assholes), and very tall.  Things started slow, but before you […]

Now that I’m living with them, my mother has a new lease on life, a reason to wake up in the morning.  She has found her life’s purpose: to get me married. Which is funny, because I can’t say I’m much of a looker these days.  I eat about 12 Mallomars a day and haven’t […]

  This is what it looks like when you’re unemployed, living with your parents, and your dog gets high off your secondhand smoke.

“Vito Wants Out” #6

Vito has started growling at my father.  I tell my Dad it’s because he’s not giving him any attention.  But, deep down I worry that Vito (my Pit Bull) has a dark side.  That he will snap and maul my Dad because he doesn’t like him.  And that would really suck…for my father. So, I […]

“The Cookie Has Crumbled” #5

My father calls me in to the den.  He wants to talk to me.  “I think your dog is eating my Mallomars.” I am silent.  #1 – I’m worried that he hates Vito so much.  #2 – I’m the one who’s really eating the Mallomars.  You see, I made a list of all the things […]

I tell my mom I want to be dropped off at Starbucks so I can work on my writing.  She says I have to ask my father.  (Am I 40 or 7?)  So, I ask him if he’ll drop me off at Starbucks so I can work on my ‘resume.’  He says I can work […]
