My Obituary by Daniel

Daniel wrote me an obit. I removed some key information. It's pretty good. Here it is:

Karin Hammerberg, [age], a unit manager of channel programming at [I really shouldn't say the name], who led a whirlwind life as the socially dynamic component of several Washington, DC comedy groups, died [date] of [death cause] at [place died]. She was [age].

An actress, comedian, film producer, blogger, television star, writer of comedy sketches, and television producer, she lived at the center of Washington, DC social life, entertaining successive generations of the city's artistic and political elite.

As doyenne of Thursday night Yotor House dinner party circuit, she and her common-law husband dazzled guests with their wit and excitement. As a hostess and occasional confidante, she hobnobbed with the most celebrated people of her day, including Howie and AJ from the Backstreet Boys, Alexandra Evans, Jeffrey Greggs, Michael Jordan, and Dennis Rodman.

"Karin was ridiculous," said Justin Windholtz, a friend. "She once drew penises all over my face in permanent marker!"

Miss Hammerberg was born in Marburg, Germany in 1983 and was a 2006 graduate of George Washington University. While she was a teenager in Chicago she was invited to look at schools in Washington, DC. While friends often thought she got her nickname, "the hammer" from to her abrasive sense of humor, in fact her nickname derived from her childhood moniker, "little hammer," which was given to her by older brother.

With help of friends, Karin Hammerberg landed small roles in several films beginning in 2001, including 2005's "Check," 2006's "Paper.com," and 2006's "Smoking," (as seen on Youtube.com) though her biggest part was as a corpse on National Geographic's "Is It Real? Vampires" in 2006.

She maintained a regularly updated weblog, http://www.gilmoregurlz.blogspot.com/ that was the delight of thousands of her devoted fans. "[I loved her]…blog," said Chris Singel, an admirer. "[I hope every]… person reads it and realizes
how hilariously awesome/ [smart and pretty]… [she was]. …High five!"

In 2006 so she got a job at [NOPE NOPE NOPE], where her hard work, brilliance, and humility earned her rapid promotions—from intern to unit manager of the channel programming department in less than a year—at the organization. "I don't know how we'll go on without her," said [Boss woman who doesn't know my name], a coworker (boss).

In addition to other comedic projects, Hammerberg and Emily Axford created a comic persona called The Stacies, extended sketchess in which two disparate women pretended to be twins.

Survivors include her mother "Doesn't it feel good to pay your own bills" Hammerberg and her father, "How old are you again?" Hammerberg, as well as two brothers, Craig of Washington, DC and Clinton of Breckinridge, CO; and her longtime companion, Asa Boy of Washington, DC.
