What's That On Your Lip?

My apologies for being among the missing lately. I have not, nor will I willingly, give up posting on Martini Cartwheels.

To prove I am still as klutzy and crazy as ever, I will share you with this picture which demonstrates the hazards of leaving lip balm in your car in the summer and applying said lip balm immediately upon entry in the vehicle. It's clumpy.


Lots of goings on, primarily with work and a recent changing of the guard which has forced me to start looking for a new job. My goal is to find something closer than 68 miles from my home and one which pays closer to the going market rate.

I tried my hand at being a professional gambler yesterday. After losing at roulette and 4 card poker, I have changed my mind. The free drinks are enticing but they will not pay the mortgage. I'll stick to application development (that's a 25 cent word for programmer/analyst).

If I had my druthers however, I would prefer to be one of the following:

1. Professional blogger
2. Synchronized swimmer
3. Brewmaster
4. Writer
5. Photographer
6. Doggie day care owner
7. Jellybean quality control inspector

Ok, so I lied about 2 and 7 may not be in high demand. I'm very optimistic however, that I will find a job I like even though my current position is almost perfect. Almost.....

I know someone who became a brewmaster. He worked in a brewery in Germany for a little while, came back and started a brewery.

I like 1 and 4! I'd also add filmmaker. Found a great location yesterday that I'm tempted to write a script around!

Good luck with the job hunt! I'll send mega-vibes out to you for that one.
