What’s new? Hmmmm.
I think I may give up drinking. If you’re young and you enjoy a few cocktails, enjoy it while you can! No one tells you that it’s all down hill after 50.
I had one beer the other night and I was in a total funk the next day. It sucks! If it happened in my youth, perhaps I didn’t recognize it because I probably just drank again the next day. I’ve decided I can’t afford to randomly go into a state of total lethargy and sadness. I’m not a sad woman! The cool thing is, I was myself again today.
Btw, I took a job doing what I used to pay my staff to do. It’s only 4 hours a day. It pays peanuts. But it gets me out of the house everyday by 8 am. That part is great!
When I’ve pitched a few theatres in the last few months, they are really enthused when they hear my success stories. When I try to reach them again, the trail goes cold and they don’t even take my calls. It’s mind blowing! And I can’t get a straight answer from anyone.
Castration is the first thing that comes to mind. My company made this theatre millions in revenue over the years.
All my “mentors” (Napolean Hill, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Canfield) say that everything happens for a reason. The way I see, it the reason must be to focus all my efforts on my new career or to cut this guy off at the knees by returning the favor. Then again, I believe in karma. He will likely create his own hell soon enough.
That being said, I had an idea while in the shower this morning. (Not sure about you, but those are usually the best ideas.)
I have not been working out at all! But frankly, it was love and the promise of my sex that motivated me before. That ship has sailed. So I need something new. I’m also uptight about my “looking like a fireplug” status, so I haven’t really been trying to get evening gigs. Besides, nothing fits! What would I wear?
Then it hit me like a bolt out of the blue. I’ve been performing for senior residences, but it’s a lot of running around. Why not bring the seniors to me?
They are interested in booking me for matinee performances! If I can sell 100 tickets a show, I will make 6 times what I currently make on one gig. In addition, she wants to talk to me about booking groups. Who knows? Perhaps I’ll take up producing artists on the side, starting with my son.
Google is flying to Chicago to do a field study and guess who they are paying a visit to? You guessed it. …me! I can’t wait! I have to sign a nondisclosure agreement, but I’m really psyched. I intend to take the money from that to buy something that fits.
The beauty of all this? MOTIVATION! Did I. happen to mention this theatre has an okd school marquee on it? MY NAME IN LIGHTS! 🙂
My show will consist of a bunch of characters both from Broadway and a few of my own design. Ideally I’d like to dance in it as well. So that means GET THE LEAD OUT TUBBY! Ta Da! 🙂
