Interview went really well. Man. A year ago I found a hiking area I really fell in love with. I happened to see a ranger walk by one day, walked by and then told my girlfriend wait up a sec. I ran back and talked to the guy for like a minute about who manages the land and who he worked for and stuff.

They post an opening at a different location a year later, I apply and the guy who calls me to setup an interview mentions he bumped into me a year ago. Itís the same dude. Had my interview today with him and the head guy and they were cool as fuck. Interview went on for an hour because we were just chopping it up. lm 90% sure they will offer it. They want me to live in a casita on a big ass reservation of land by myself and Iím down as fuck.

Thank god I took 10 seconds to go say whatís up to the dude.

Really stoked for you @50mm, the situation at the previous job sounded soul crushing and getting to work with conservation sounds right up your alley. You just never know with jobs; don't be afraid to put yourself out there and ask for things, you never know what may come from it.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Santa Ana winds during a fall morning at our new place. The wind goes through our avocado trees and hits just right. Some of the best days I had skating were in the fall with a dry breeze in the air. Always bring good nostalgia.


Putting eyeshadow on and shaving your armpits before a pickup game is psychological warfare.

Met an old friend whoa getting back into skating at 37. He said last Time he went skating and some old Lady complained. He is not rebelling at that age of course but he told me he kind of enjoyed the situation. ĄI like that there are people that donít understand it at all and we enjoy it so much. We always did it back in the day. Why stop now?ď Then he went on to complain that he canít really find decks under 8 inches anymore haha.

just remembered watching corey glick's part in souvenir with all my friends - all avid fans of alex g's released and unreleased stuff - and screaming at his last trick then screaming even louder that they used an alex g song that not a single one of us had ever heard before. it's the simple things  :)

Wow that sounds like the last half of the Kerouc book, "The Dharma Bums."  Dude goes solo to a fire monitoring tower in either Oregon or Washington State, reads a lot, does yoga, and finds himself.  Great read.  Good luck.

Just got an email from this company I did some consulting work for from May-August.  They did paper checks for consultants.  According to the accounting dept. I have an uncashed check out there for $3,200.  Don't know how I missed that one.  I'm getting it now.

This part single handily started my love affair with (Sandy) Alex G. I went on a two-week road trip recently and the only cd's I brought were (Sandy) Alex G albums - unreleased and every C-side I could find.

Listening to this song during a sunset drive with the Pacific Ocean crashing against cliffsides to my left and giant redwoods towering overhead brought me such unimaginable joy.  So thank you Glick!  :)

Plans for it?
Everytime I come into money I'm reminded of George Costanza:
"Jerry, this is found money, I don't wanna save it!"
"Broke the tail, like a well oiled snail"

I'm a responsible adult.  I've got a mortgage and bills.  Plus a two year old daughter.  No fun for me.  Plus I'm looking for a full time gig.  Independent consulting is too fickle when you have responsibilities.  Or I could just head to the local casino and put it all on black.
