I've Been Anally Probed

I was knocked out and probed...


What a way to start a blog. Admitting to being probed in such a manner. But it did happened and I am happier for it.

I had a Colonoscopy. One which was long over due. Everything went well though the doctor did find 4 small polyps which he removed. I won't say it was a close call but I am glad they were found now as oppose to a later date.

My dad died of this cancer 13 years ago, so I'm on the must watch list.

So before I go any further here, I say to all my friends, fans and aliens, if you have members in your family that have or had colon cancer, get check. Forget that age thing and get pass the fear of the probe.

Take care of your business.

So welcome to my blog. This is totally new to me so hang in there as I try to figure out my way around this.

I guess what I will be doing here is sharing my thoughts with you as I am about to take on the biggest change of my life. If you are not aware, I am about to leave my birth coast, New York and move out to Los Angeles, California.

The Late Night staff have offered me the opportunity to go to the west coast and continue working with Conan. I can't begin to express how happy and excited I am. I've been working on Late Night since the beginning, the people for the most part are an extended family. And it's great to know that I will be continuing on with most of them.

But with every great news there is equally bad.

I've fallen in love.

It's weird for me to actually see myself typing these words. In my past I've dated a few people that I really cared for but always felt something was missing. In the last few months this person has filled in a void in my heart. A place that has always been empty and I never really expected it to be filled. It's one of those things in life you just come to except that that's the way it will away be.

So as you can imagine, this move as much as I want to do it, isn't going to be easy and it might come at a huge price to me.

Leaving New York has always been a goal of mine for years. Well before working for Late Night. It's one of those I was born here, don't want to die here things. So in some way, Late Night has saved me. I hope that maybe someday she'll wake up and feel the same and decide to join me. But it's a major decision for anyone to make. And I will always respect and care about her no matter what she decides.

Hopefully in May I will be talking about how great the California sun is and how wonderful it is to have --------- still in my life.



  1. Pierre you are so wise to follow up with your health. I have a cancer history in my family and so I stay on top of it. I work in a hospice unit so that also makes things a big reality for me.
    You may have just saved a life by encouraging someone to do this unpleasant task. The temporary discomfort and annoyance of these tests far out weigh the horror of a cancer battle.
    Now- unpleasantness aside....I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE IN LOVE!!!
    See, I told everyone Barak would bring good things to earth. (i was only half kidding.)
    All this news from you is so exciting and I can't wait to read all about your work and with your new love!
    What wonderful news! The timing will work out. I just know when she starts visualizing you emptying your apartment and getting on a plane she will KNOW what to do! (Hopefully she will know before that.)

    I'll be reading!

  2. Hi, Pierre!

    Welcome to blogdom!


    So glad you had your colonoscopy. Especially with your family history.

    Happy to hear you'll be a closer neighbor (I'm in N. CA).

    Hopefully, your new love will come to visit in LA, realize ALL of what she's missing, and move out too!


    Best wishes!

  3. You are in love? How wonderful! I'm so happy for you. Hopefully the logistics of where you both live will resolve itself. (I guess Trish and I will have to give you up as a second

    I have to get a colonoscopy too! I've had really bad pains and my doctor wants to check my intestines out. *rolls eyes* Wonderful....*sigh*.

    I've read that you are moving to California. That should be interesting as it is SO different from NY. I'm glad I'll still be able to see you on Conan! I love watching your skits.

    Take care,

  4. molly and i are so glad things are working out so well for you professionally. we also wish you the best of luck with your love life. you're a one-in-a-million guy, pierre. now go to hollywood and make your mark!

  5. Hey Pierre!

    Congrats on all the wonderful things happening to you.

    You will love California! They have In 'n Out there! And yes, the weather ROCKS.

    As for being in love, that is also fantastic. It is ironic it happens just before you are moving across the country.

    I'm so happy for you!

    And I'm so glad you are taking care of your health.

    Your blog is great!
