The Search Ends? Day 106

Well looks like tomorrow I may be taking the blue pill. If I get the phone call I will have a job installing alarm systems and DirecTV for various and sundry residences and small businesses across the greater Bay Area.

Now that ride wasn't all that bad now was it?

106 days to find a job. Not a record, I'm sure, but a good enough go. I gave myself until June and then I was gonna commit self-murder. Luckily, that won't be happening...

So my spirits are high. Not too high I hope as I may go in for a drug test tomorrow. So I'm stoked!

My friend Dan Ryan whom I met during my stint with Heald College is leaving. I was running D&D games at his place for over 5 years, at the tune of one game a month (with some hiccups). He is leaving for bigger and better things. I will miss him. If you're reading this, Dan. Good Luck to you and your family.

Btw, I am known as King Ralph by Dan and his family because of an 'incident' at his house during a party he was hosting. I think that's all I need to say about that. Let your imagination fill in the details. The only other item I will mention is that of a well-constructed beer bong made of plexiglass, plastic and metal valve. The rest is history. (I understand a girl this past New Years beat my record, but I don't think you can call a girl Ralph can you?)

What else? Oh yes, the new commercials suck. Thank you.

What else? I am reading the newest translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh by Stephen Mitchell. Anyone give a shit? Didn't think so. I think my next blog entry will be my analysis of that First Epic of Literature. Really, it's the first comic book. It has superheroes and gods and goddesses. Ethical dilemmas. Frank Miller and Stan Lee would see where I'm coming from... John Layman wouldn't though...

Oh one last does work. Honest. No joke. Give it a whirl and see where you end up.

Just remember, there is ALWAYS a better job out there.
