The Man Song Gets a Live Action Video Starring Sean Morey

I expect to live longer because I have a funny husband. I love his style of humor. Ray's jokes are always topical, contextual and spontaneous (as opposed to the “let me tell you this one” variety).

From the Thursday night parties to the end of the Unconference on Sunday, I found it exhilarating being surrounded by women who write.

The single women you will see in The Last Single Girls webisodes have declared their independence. It doesn't mean they don't date or they don't like men.

Humor, Sex and Verbal Jousting

Coors holds a very special place in my heart. I loved working there because the beer business is fun and they treated their people very well.
