Writing to be writing.

I want to write more often.  I should do it every day.  I should write at least one joke every day.  Anyway...

I've been unemployed for a year now.  It's been a year since I left the job from hell.  It still messes with my head.  Every once in a while I'll pick up some new piece of information about the Asshole-stadt and her crew that gives me new understanding and insight.  There's no way I would have lasted any longer than I did, even if I had done everything exactly right.  I was doomed from the get-go.  That's the most insane and sick work environment I've ever seen and I never want to experience anything like it ever again.

Ok, I got that out of the way.

I have three possible cool things on the horizon.  First, I had a telephone interview the other day for a job at a big box home improvement chain.  The position is part-time cashier.  Foot in the door.  Anyway, I felt that the interview went well.

Second thing:  A friend of mine who works at the local newspaper submitted my bio to their new entertainment editor.  This could lead to having the paper do a profile on me.  A local-girl-makes-good kind of thing.  More like local-middle-aged-widow-gets-into-comedy-which-is-completely-nuts kind of thing.   I hope I hope I hope I hope this happens.

Third thing:  A comic that I worked with very early on, and who is a Facebook friend, is making a short film.  He posted that he needs background people for one day of shooting.  Ooh!  Me!  Me!  Choose me!  So, if it goes the way it's supposed to I'll spend a day in L.A. in a couple weeks getting an item crossed off my bucket list.  I'm gonna be in a movie!

Stay tuned.
