D.J. and Bucky
Not A Ex-Girlfriend

I enjoy humor. I know everybody does, but I really enjoy it. Growing up, I didn’t watch sports. I would instead sneak down at night, turn on HBO, and watch comedians while recording their sets on cassette. Then I could play it over and over ago, and try to figure out the subtle genius that is a well-posited dick joke. I never wanted to be a comedian, nor write for a television show, or books, or films. I probably don’t have the chops for any of that, quite frankly. I just enjoy making my friends laugh.

I have been sending out funny (but true) stories to his friends for the past 15 years. In the early years, I would get into crazy scenarios (like drinking a 40oz of Olde English 800 in McDonald’s while eating dinner). But the problem with doing crazy things, is you generally upset a lot of folks. Like police and other authorities. Plus, you’re usually a giant asshole. People who are funny don’t have to do stuff like that. They’re just funny.

So, this website is simply for people who enjoy my sense of humor. I got the idea years ago in my early twenties when I was working for a beer manufacturer, touring around the country doing crazy things. I would post my road-reports and send mass emails to my friends.

During those days I was once in Chicago, on break, and at a random party where I knew just a few people. A girl was introduced and after hearing my name said, “I get your emails – I love them!” And yet, we couldn’t connect how she received them. She wasn’t on my list, nor a direct friend of anyone I knew. I know this sounds stupid, but it was like the highest compliment I could receive. I had a pretty crappy life, I guess. But, I realized that these emails were forwarded at least a few times, which says at least I was more interesting than those email forwards your grandmother sent you about God.   Those sucked.

So, ten years later I’m going to try the Web 2.0 version. Enjoy.

P.S. If you would like to become instantly notified of new posts, simply click on a social media outlet at the top of the page. I also post regularly to forums about looms, so you can find me there, with all the other cool guys who hang out and talk about looms.

P.P.S. This site is optimized for most mobile devices, so feel free to access on the train, in the car, walking about, or waiting for your wife to come back to the table from a restaurant bathroom.

    I like how you are not afraid to be yourself! You are very funny!! 🙂

    1. D.J. Paris says:

      @Lifes a beach Thank you. Yes, I am funny, but I am terrified of a LOT of things. Most of all, being myself. 🙂

  2. RiverwoodWriter says:

    I love the premise of your blog, DJ. I’m convinced that laughter is one of the most healing things on earth, so anyone who makes people laugh (if it’s not too much at the expense of others) is a healer.

    Sidenote: I grew up just a few miles from Paris, Virginia. When I was in college, my father once drove to the Paris, VA post office to mail a postcard that said, “Paris is lovely in the spring! Love, Dad.”

    1. D.J. Paris says:

      @RiverwoodWriter Thank you so much! I really appreciate your readership and the “Paris in the spring” line is classic.

    I can’t decide if I wish I had found your blog sooner so I could have been reading it for longer, or be glad I’ve only just found it so I have tons to catch up on.

      1. Vanessa says:

         @delfinparis Sorry, msnbc.com was starting to get boring and Discover magazine thinks I should get a subscription to read the articles on their site.

        1. D.J. Paris says:

          Okay, now you have to do three things.
          1.  “like” the FB page (up on right hand side)
          2.  follow me on Twitter (up at top)
          3.  Email your friends about how funny and handsome I am.

        2. D.J. Paris says:

          And, let’s not pretend that you read anything that high-brow.

        3. Vanessa says:

           @delfinparis Sure I do, where else would you get to read an article on the fascinating sex life of a tick?

    Thanks for the Twitter love, from a new “80 year old” blogger.

    You are one of my new favs (said in a most non-stalker like fashion) and if I could just master this whole Twitter thing I will follow you. If not… well, I suppose I suppose I will just hop from blog to blog leaving comments like this in my wake…. Laughing at you in So. California! Mrs. Lowrey

So thanks for bringing the rad, and not sucking.

    You say that your life has been crappy. And then again you say that the horse is not an ex-girlfriend. Sir, I assure you, if you have never had a horse as a girlfriend, you have not had a crappy life (just ask sexually frustrated WWII soldiers). So please clarify, sir : which of the two is a lie? Or have you had a different equine girlfriend, just not this specimen? If so, I would be eternally grateful to you if you describe your shenanigans with said ex in detail. You see, my ancestors were WWII soldiers, and the horse-lovin’ genes have stood the test(es) of time.

Haha Perhaps it was just a master plan to bring more traffic here (it worked!) and within your blog are subliminal messages telling people to do outrageous things like show love to everyone or eat tacos every Tuesday.

    You had me at loving comedy! Not too many people understand people who are obsessed with comedy. I read about it, watch it and listen to it. Honestly, I treat comedy like a drug, I crave as much as I can get. Looks like you have a high threshold for comedy and I can respect that. Great posts I’ve read so far!
