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!
