Finding Something To Do in the Fall
As it is I kinda go stir crazy when I do have some free time so I am looking at doing something productive during the day.
I came up with this idea of putting some of these pages on this blog into print. So I did this blog2print book of just a few posts that I have done in the past 3 years. It has mostly to do from my own personal experiences.
It should be coming in the mail shortly and what I am going to do with it is give it to a few people that have never read the blog and get their opinion of whether they find the selected posts interesting.
To be honest I want the harshest critic to read it and tell me the truth. My belief is no one will read it and find what I have written totally boring.
Another silly thing I did was apply to be a daytime tv host on this program. I applied but they called me back for an audition Monday afternoon. I just wanted to do it to check myself out and see whether I have what it takes to be on television. I know that sounds freakin' crazy but at the most I expect little to come of it but it should be a blast experiencing an audition.
Seriously if I could all of a sudden change my vocation from waiter to something else it would be doing the evening news. I am a bit of a news junkie anyway. Ask me at any time what is going on in the world I could tell you. Euro debt crisis , election results in Chechyna , stock markets plummeting , you name it.
I like where I am now but I gotta keep something going on or I will just wait on tables till I am 65 years old. Not that would be a bad thing. Only how many waiters do you see who need the income at that age working as waiters?
Who knows maybe if I don't plant a seed now the only thing left for me when the time comes will be a Wal Mart greeter.
Not that there is anything wrong with that..........
