Oh, how I missed the working world....

I've taken on a temporary job - the first "official" non-music job
I've had since 1999.

Nothing much has changed.

Some notable quotes:

"If you get hurt, you're fired." [that sounds legal]

"If I say anything that offends anyone, it's just the
way I am." [ah, a good legal defense!]

"Here are the cardboard boxes, or 'homeless housing'. "
[quite sensitive]

First guy: "I used to make $112k a year in the 90s."
Second guy: "Then why are you doing THIS job?"
First guy: "I used to like to spend money on beautiful women."
[um...OK]

"The union says I work in THIS spot....not THAT spot."
[the other spot was a foot away...territorial, aren't ya, pal....]

Well, it's only temporary.....and since the city decided my house
has magically doubled in value (for tax purposes only), quite
necessary.

Ah... Paying the bills. Us musicians must do what we must do. Hang in there, L. Like you said, it's only temporary! (At least you have a house!)

Went to a dinner party last night at the CC. Chatted up the musicians. They were excellent at not rolling their eyes as they played a billion christmas songs and true MOLDY ldies. "You gotta eat..." was their attitude. I'm glad I never had to do this for my primary income. I do need to pay my expenses and have some mad money left over, though. I hope you hold up okay.
