First Post

Hey everyone! As mentioned on the original placeholder page, I am just getting the site activated and working out some kinks – mostly related to my lack of familiarity with Word Press software. All good. I is smart. I ain’t dum.

You may have noticed that the site title for psconway.com has been (for now) renamed to “Life Sucks. Laugh Here.” You like? Feel free to post comments either way. I am certainly open to other ideas that fit a “positive yet nihilistic” theme, too.

Very excited by the strong number of subscribers so early in our formative days. I will take that as a preliminary vote of confidence that I have made you laugh in other social media venues over the years, and that you are counting on that laughter to continue here, more often, and mayhaps, a smidge more unfiltered. If you have a delicate constitution, deeply held religious beliefs, or are offended by well-placed profanity, then fuck off. This site will never be for you.

Taking that one step further – the goal is to truly make you smile, giggle, and laugh with these posts. Forget about all the bullshit in your life for a few minutes. My grandmother had an Irish phrase for life’s BS… navacancha. Instead of cussing, she was known for saying, “That’s a bunch of navacancha.” Turns out, that is a completely made up word, and a delicious example of irony when a word for “complete BS” actually was complete BS . Ha!

If you laugh hard enough, and perhaps pee just a little, then perhaps you will remember me fondly, tell your friends, and come back for more. If you remember me too fondly, then you have a serious pee fetish, and this is not the site for you. Sry.

More to come. Stay tuned. Sláinte!

About PS Conway

Hey everyone! Welcome to Life Sucks. Laugh Here. In my college years, I was an English major and aspiring writer. Then life took over - marriage and kids - in our mid-twenties. Like all good Catholics of Irish descent, I literally looked sideways at my wife, and she was pregnant three weeks after our wedding. And then the ride of life began. My writing took a backseat for the next twenty-five years. But now, our daughters are raised, and my wife and I are in a Renaissance phase of our lives. As I begin to write again, I see so much negativity, tribalism, and anger on social media... so many people seem to think life sucks. The only antidote to this mind-rotting negativity that I know of, albeit transient, is laughter. So, I have committed to writing and growing this blog around that singular objective... try my damnedest to provide original writing that makes people laugh. And maybe think a little, too. Hope you really enjoy. If you laugh, please share this blog with your friends so we can grow our subscriber base and online influence. We are on a mission to spread joy, mirth, cheer, yule, and good humor to as many folks as possible. Thank you for joining this effort. Sláinte! - PS Conway
