"I write a lot about my beer-drinkin', poker-playin' mom "Philly" and my news-anchoring stepdad, "Ron Burgundy." They practically raised me. I also write about the rest of my family and friends, but I seldom use their real names, so no one gets incarcerated. I like making people laugh, but more importantly, I like people who make ME laugh. I blog because I care."
