I write a little. sing a little. sassmouth a little.
All in a day’s work (after I watch Netflix.)
Tina Fey is my mentor, although it’s more of a one-sided relationship right now since we have yet to meet. But hence the name of the blog here, since she’s a Mark Twain Prize for Humor recipient, along with the incomparable Ellen DeGeneres, Lily Tomlin, and Carol Burnett, and Whoopi Goldberg. All females. All funny.
The award honors individuals in the spirit of Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens- “As a social commentator, satirist and creator of memorable characters, Samuel Clemens – the distinguished 19th century novelist and essayist also known as Mark Twain – was a fearless observer of society, who outraged many while delighting and informing many more with his uncompromising perspective of social injustice and personal folly.”
All those wonderful words above I would like to do. or be. Whatever the correct syntax, I’m going for it.
Hopefully talking about humor doesn’t jinx me actually trying to be funny.
