Hola my web friend,
Excitement has faded as I faced the collection of bills that have piled up since I got home. (insert sad theme music here) Just because you use their phone line, watch their cable and use their electricity they expect some kind of strange symbiotic relationship where I give them money for this stuff.
So to make a long story short, guess what:
I got a new McJob.
Doing what you might ask?
Being a bartender at a lame watering hole where I can watch sun burned tourists try to forget how much money they are spending on vacation.
Better McJob yes, but still one that requires me to wear a nametag.
That reporter who did the story on the giant frog called me to say he found a woman who claims she can make clouds dissolve just by thinking about it. The paper was not interested but he thought maybe I would be (but of course!) She has a phat trailer and if she is having this read to her please believe me when I say that I think shag carpeting is still very much in style.
Sales of the skate vid are picking up from the ads I placed in magazines. I spent a couple hours yesterday and today boxing and shipping. Laura from the post office wants to give a big hiya to the all the skate boyz and remind them that the zip code is not only a good idea, it's the law.
Jason has been forgiven for being a murderer of all creatures great and small. He told me he went surfing in Daytona, and before he left he filled up his slowly dying radiator with water. He of course forgot to put the cap back on the radiator and the truck's engine basically exploded halfway there. So he had to hitch a ride back to town and met up with some old friends that were going surfing too and then of course he met a girl on vacation and . . . . .
you get the drift, I'm sure
