The timing couldn’t be worse, but I’ve been summoned to work early today. I have to attend a meeting, upstairs in the Porketta Room, or whatever. So, this is going to be an ultra-quickie. Sorry, but the shit is out of my control…
Toney came home for lunch a few minutes ago, and I was ranting like a wino with a vienna sausage in his beard. The site needs updates! Real life is getting in my way!! I’m starting to lose it, maaaaan!!!
And Toney just shook her head in exasperation, ate some kind of salad that looked alarmingly slimy, and went back to work. I could almost see the words floating above her head: I should’ve just eaten in the car….
Anyway, the Surf Report is available in the Kindle Store now. Check it out. I submitted it months ago, and heard nothing. I figured they scanned the site with some sort of spider or robot, and didn’t care for the way we, you know, communicate.
But now I have a log-in to a control panel, where I can upload an image, write a description, etc. This weekend I’ll spend some time on it, and make it a little better.
Not that I expect to make any money from it… Amazon gets a 70% cut of all revenues, and a subscription is only $1.99. So, it’s not going to lead to a vacation home, or anything. I just think it’s kinda cool. And sometimes that’s enough.
You must check out today’s Mockable. Because he’s a nice guy, I guess, Metten gave me some credit for the “update,” but he did the whole thing. And it blows my mind. I’d have no idea how to go about such a thing, it’s all a great big blurry mystery to me.
Speaking of nice guys, check this out. I went to high school with that dude, and he’s been playing in Tim McGraw’s band for many years. Touring the world and making big bank…
A few years ago I bumped into him at a bar in Dunbar, and he couldn’t have been friendlier. Some people become successful and morph into insufferable pricks, but not him. I’ve never heard a negative word. So, there ya go.
And I know he’s not “famous,” but he’s certainly successful. When he was a kid he wanted to be a professional drummer, and look what he’s doing…
So, that leads to the Question of the Day:
Who is the most famous, or successful person from your high school? We have our share of doctors and lawyers, but I’m looking for more unusual professions, like Tim McGraw’s longtime drummer. That sort of thing.
Also, we’ll need a full report on their “insufferable prick quotient.” Don’t forget to list their IPQ, on a scale of 1 to 10. Very important!
Use the handy comments feature below. And I need to snorkle-down a Salisbury steak frozen meal, and get my ass to the Porketta Room.
See ya tomorrow, boys and girls.
