My buddy GB Miller asked the other day, "Are you going to post again soon about the stupid questions you get about your upcoming event?" I have a following!
The really, really dumb and repetitive question season is upon us, but I haven't yet reached the breaking point, because there's still about a month before the event. The more stressed I am, the funnier these pieces seem to get, so stay tuned. I'm sure I'll be ranting before the end of the week.
Is it me? Or is it odd to call someone (me) several times, and email them
multiple missives of 500 words apiece, complaining about something and then add a
sentence saying, "My time is valuable..."
And I get the most ridiculous requests, involving tons of time spent sorting data, that all start with, "Can you..." and "Is it possible to..."
Right~! And I would like to say, "I can. And it is possible. But not for you!"
Then there's the issue of my emails not syncing with webmail, and being unable to find the contact information for the food carts that we had invited to the event last year.
I can't remember the name of the gourmet hot dog guy, who wears a shirt that says, "Ask me about my 10" weiner!" And no, I was not about to do a Google search for that. I live near Portland and there are too many things that already give me nightmares!
On a happy note, I wanted to thank all of you who have purchased and reviewed (or almost reviewed) The Adventures of Black Jack Pepper. Much appreciated! If you have a kid, know a kid, or are a kid at heart, or just feel like supporting your fellow blogger, please check it out.
And lastly, Mr. RK, who is very creative and a brilliant photographer, set up his photoblog. Great pics and a bit of silly text.
