I STARTED A TWITTER ACCOUNT this past Monday with the opening tweet: “Finally caved.” I’m not on Facebook, Google+, or any other social networking site, so this was a big step. Follow me at @CritelliComedy for absurd one-liners in 140 characters or less.
But this post isn’t for regular readers of this site — Who would those be, anyway? I haven’t updated in months… — it’s for people who found this site through the link on my Twitter page and wonder what it’s about. If I hadn’t written this post, the first thing people would see is a deeply earnest discussion of my favorite books. And that’s not okay.
What’s the point of this site? To share stories like “the time I went to a Lucha Libre match in East LA,” “the time I went to a strip club after hosting a gay house guest,” “the time I worked in a phone sales job straight out of Boiler Room,” “the time I stole a bathrobe from The Standard hotel in NYC,” or “the time I made a music video with a fake dead body in a bag.” And more!
Will I update this website regularly or legitimately anytime soon? Who knows! But right now, just doing the bare minimum is a huge accomplishment. #resting_on_my_laurels
