My life in five minutes…

I thought I’d give you a brief update – because as good as Facebook is it certainly does eschew details. That said…

Metric

I’ve been waiting for the right weather to ramp up and get ready to cycle my second metric of the year. (A metric is 100 kilometers.) Every time I think I’m ready we get crazy heat or stupid winds or something like that. This week, it’s cool and while it is breezy it is rather nice. So, I’m getting ready.

The thing about riding a metric, for me, is that it’s basically sado-masochism on wheels. Yesterday, I rode 25 miles (about 40k). I thought, “That hurt,” and went to a 36 mile ride (about 58k) today. That hurt more, so I’ll ride further tomorrow – until I get to 100k this weekend. This I call fun…

Job

I had a rather interesting job interview recently where the employer changed her mind and decided that rather than consider me for a writing position she would consider me for an E-commerce Specialist position. Now, let’s ignore how very under qualified I am… ignoring that, yet? Next week, I’m supposed to give a volley of managers a PowerPoint presentation showing how I change their online strategy and improve their online presence… sure… no problem.

So, I’ve begun working on a strategy I think will work. This job would be mostly strategizing with management possibilities (or so I’m told), so I guess I’ll be ready for a career of improvising should I get the job…

Writing

Can you believe I’ve written six plays in the last eight months? Neither can I! Of course, it would be nice to find a theater that would buy one of them… which, of course, if why nobody should ever be encouraged to pursue writing. Seriously.

And lastly…

Yes, I’ve been negligent in keeping this site up. But when you’re unemployed there’s just not much to talk about. You want to hear about how Vicky and I talked about how we couldn’t afford a new TV? I didn’t think so. Just bear with me. Okay?

In the meantime, I’ve got a birthday coming up. So you’re bound to hear all about a trip to Dizzyland really soon!

ANOTHER new T.V.?! Didn't you guys just get a new T.V. like a year ago? Hello?! "Mr. Green"?? Are you really that materialistic and self-centered that you need to keep up with the 'Jones' instead of keeping up with reality? Get a freaking job and support your wife who's busting her ass every day of her life just trying to survive.

Shut up. Grow up and wake up. It's time for a little reality.
