Ain't She Sweet

Mrs. Film Geek surprised me tonight with this e-card. Apparently, Be Glad You Didn't Run Away And Join The Circus Day is gaining popularity as a national holiday.

I always thought I'd enjoy the carny lifestyle. But ultimately, it's probably best I didn't join the traveling side-show with my high school classmate, Steve Copenhaver.


Those clowns can be pretty damn creepy.

Are you kidding? Carnies have it made..the smoking, the tats, boozing it any hour of the day, the smoking, hiding from the law, and the smoking. What a sweet, sweet life that would be!

Oh well, back to staring at a PC all day and wondering if I can make my mortgage/car/utilities/insurance/ payments :)

I gots ya, Jackie!

About 10 years ago Kristy and I were at a small carnival, and walked past the lot where some of the carny workers vehicles were parked. One in particular caught my attention: in the front seat was a 13" black and white TV plugged into the lighter, a sleeping bag and a small car-battery-operated fridge.

I turned to her and said: "Man, what a great life!" And I meant it.

She still puts up with me. :)
