A Cat Has absolute honesty

“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” ― Ernest Hemingway Unless it’s Facebook (or some other social network) and then all bets are off. — NOT Ernest Hemingway

I Have a new “like me” on Facebook Page

Hi you guys — just in case you didn’t notice the “Like Deana” box to the left has changed. If any of you want to keep up with where I’m at and what I’m doing in comedy, I have a new Facebook Page – one that lists my actual name – I’d love it if…

Chasing Feathers

They really need to fix that whole REPLY ALL function in email by adding some kind of warning like “you are about to copy the universe with your opinion, are you sure you wish to do this?” type feature or something. That would simplify my life a whole heck of a lot. Granted, so would…

It’s My Faith, Not my Comedy, That Helps me “Cope”

“How do you separate the hyperbole from reality when you are with other comics?” It depends entirely on the location and the relationship. If we’re friends we’re real. But we’re not always really friends, sometimes we’re just peers. I can’t believe you know so-and-so! That is so cool! No, I don’t know them. But they are on…

There is such a thing as unintended consequences. All the First Amendment promises us is freedom from Government interference.  No…

Thankful November: Friends – Real and Imagined.

With American Thanks Giving being in November (My Canadian friends celebrated last month), I thought this would be a good month to write on being thankful. I was consumed in a post Halloween candy hangover rivaling brown bottle flu yesterday and I was not thankful for anything save perhaps my Tums. So I didn’t write…

Remind Me Who I am, by Jason Gray

I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of this guy before. I really like him, and I love this song. It’s Spirit filled, uplifting, and I like the musical arrangement. This is the first single from Jason’s Album, A Way To See In The Dark, slated for release on September 13, 2011. I discovered Jason on…

Jesus wants the rose. AMEN! — Matt Chandler Clip

I know I said I was going offline for a bit, however, a friend shared this on Facebook today and had to share it. I’ve never heard of Matt Chandler before, but he’s right.  Jesus wants the rose. This is exactly where I’m at right now with the church as a whole. Some of you…
