Boy did I need this. This day.
This was a good day. And it's all going to end with me
sleeping in an actual bed. But first things
Many months ago it dawned on me as
I wathced the B-52's on some stupid sit-com in the
early 80's, that there were some unique avenues to
push 4tvs. 4tvs would work on tv. It's captivating,
different and gimmicky. Even moreso, it'd be cool to
jazz it up and put it in some futuristic nightclub in
a movie. I can imagine it as some background to some
gritty cop movie. Then again, I think they go to strip
clubs...EITHER way, something else occured to me after
I played The Laughing Ogre last
year. A comic book. How cool would that be. So I
contacted Rich who does the comic Timespell and posed
the question. He saw me at the Ogre and dug the act.
Well, it is done. Rich said in the
next issue of Timespell, in a bar called Gabriel's
Gate, 4tvs will be booked. Though not a great paying
gig (humble attempt at a joke), I'll be immortalized
forever in comics! Ha! I simply cannot tell you how
happy I am. I know it's not going to make me famous,
but it is such an honor. I'm finding some pictures to
send to Rich for the artists and I'm simply buzzing.
This is really a unique way to be remembered. I simply
cannot say enough for Timespell, and rest assured
Rich, you will sell some copies. Oh yes, you will. My
entire family will be getting this. So pumped, thank
Other great news today. Furniture.
Lots. And it wasn't in a dumpster! We saved it from
being thrown out. In an amazing twist of irony, a
friend of Mr. Penny (The $500 check man from entry
#7), lives close to me and happened to have a SHITLOAD
of furniture she didn't need. Including shelves, a
desk and a sofabed. Holy shit life is good.
Unfortunately we ripped the door off the hinges
getting the bed in (got 6 months to figure out how to
fix THAT), but who cares at this point. My neck has
hurt so incredibly bad the past few days I can't even
tell you. You think the day couldn't get any better,
but it does...
Jessica is now a manager at
Starbucks! A job she said she was going to get before
we left, well she did it! The pharmacy (and their
amazingly pitiful $6 an hour), will have to go
BUH-bye. Thank GOD she signed the 90-day no-notice
paper. She will have her 4th and final day there on
Saturday. She is happier than I've seen her in a long
time. Actually when we thought we were staying in
Columbus back in November, she was gleaming because
she'd be able to have our wedding in Columbus. Oh yes,
I have felt the guilt. But, she's pumped. And get
this: FULL MEDICAL BENEFITS INCLUDING DENTAL. Who the
hell includes dental? Son of a bitch that's awesome. A
very, very exciting day indeed.
Unfortunately on the Sam Ash
front, I was told today that they would get "the
results" on another guy by Thursday. Results? I
certainly didn't take a test or anything... Oh well.
In the meantime, I'm putting together a new promo
tape, and my days are absolutely filled. I don't know
if I'll be able to fulfill my "In Kevin's hands by
Friday" prohecy, but the man will get that tape soon.
Well, the movie today
is of course of our glorious, magnificent,
indescribable sofabed. It's called
A Bed Odyssey.
It's actually pretty beat up, but oh
dear...oh sweet dear it's not the floor.
Please check out our glorious new addition
to the apartment: A BED!
At least temporarily, things are
happy here. We'll see what tomorrow
