Upson Downs

Welcome to Upson Downs, the least known horse racing facility in the State of Bob. I've been up and down lately. Thanks to all of you who sent kind words. I think I had a few sky-is-falling sort of moments and I have helpfully decided that that is decidedly unhelpful so I'm just not going there anymore. If I accidentally get there again I'm turning right back around thank you.

SO Gilligan's Island is going pretty well. We staged one production number tonight. We sang the song about a jillion times. The people who can actually dance were taught the dance that goes with it. I valiantly tried to follow. Suffice to say my dancing won't be the highlight of anything but I'm going to give it my best. We are at the confluence-of-everything stage where it seems that all of the work that you did before was about 80% good and the cumulative effect of this is that when you put three things together you get 0.8 X 0.8 X 0.8 or exactly 51.2% of what you were trying to achieve. It is a wonder that the director can sit there and not throw things at you. I'm sure it will all come together in the end. It always does.

Oh yeah, the dates are on the flier. Yes there is a Halloween show.

No lucky company has stepped forward to claim their new prize employee, so I continue my job search. If you know people who know people who may have a job for me now's their chance to talk to me. I'll do them a favor and call them if you give me their contact information. I have lots of leads to run down already but I could always use 46 more.

I think you need to watch a very silly, bad movie, and I have a recommendation that precisely meets that criteria. It is called "Kung Pow: Enter the Fist". Give it a watch - you'll be glad you did.

Move to Alabama. The cost of living is cheaper and gas is currently around $2.19 a gallon. But our weather sucks in comparison to yours, I do believe. I guess that would be the trade. Oh yeah, and the rednecks...hhmmm...nevermind. Good luck! I'm sure you'll find the perfect job for you. ( . )( . )

Good things come to good people. Just keep making contacts and the right position will show up at the right time. WW scoffs at me, but that doesn't keep me from being right!
