Diane Egan


I’m Diane Egan. I lived in Pittsburgh, PA for forty years, and so far, the rest in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The tagline for my website is “As Far As I Know, I’m Hilarious.” It describes how I think. Family and friends are used to my warped sense of humor. It’s a coping mechanism that seems to work for me. So does a glass of wine, therapy, and anti-depressants, but those are stories for another day.

If you’re struggling with real life issues, try to find things that make you smile. Memes and jokes do that for me. And if they make you laugh so hard that you pee your pants, consider it a bonus! So come back and read my articles and see what I’m up to.

I have the honor of being my husband’s caregiver. He’s in the beginning (also known as the "fun") stage of moderate dementia. We still laugh about his short term memory that’s on it’s way out the door. I’m learning self care as we travel this journey. What helps me the most is laughter. It usually happens after I shout “F#CK” when I take the dogs for a walk.


The DianeEgan.com website is under construction as of May 8, 2022. It should have been finished by now. It almost was completed until I overwrote the pages with a bad saved copy before I thought of backing up the new and improved content. Twenty-five years of website building evaporated my ego with the click of a button.

Note to Self: Do NOT accept Wordpress defaults. EVER. Click the Advance down arrow. Select the backup schedule that suits your fancy. You’ll be thankful you did. Your mileage may vary.
