40 First Updates

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 10:06 pm

Okay, so maybe not 40 updates, but I do have news a plenty.

1: I’ve really taken to this bartending thing. Everything seems to fit with my personality. The pay structure of “cash now, plan later” is something I’ve been practicing since childhood. Most of my expenses are now defined by the amount of shift ime I would require to them. Also, last week, for the first time since I left my job I deposited money into my checking account. Which I then promptly spent on junk food, video games, women and liquor.

Actually, not on booze. I don’t really have to pay for that anymore, which is, as you can imagine, a HUGE weight off of my wallet.

2: Thanks for the prostate tickling comments on the Road Trip post. You all make me smile like a gassy baby.

3: I am definitely doing another candy sculpture this year. However, my new work schedule may not permit me to be able to get it done this coming week/end. So you may have to wait until the first or second week of the new year.

4: Yes it’s going to rock. I’ve already ordered about fity pounds of candy, which is now on my parents’ front porch waiting to be turned into pure fucking awesome. I’m planning more of a narrative this year, and the storyboards have been very promising.

5: I’ve figured out how to sidestep my perpetual disappointment with New Year’s Eve. I’m going to be working. Instead of wasting a shit ton of money I’ll be making it.

6: HAPPY HOLIDAYS. Seriously. May you find with your families, or without them, the kind of joy that makes your days bright and warm, and the verve of life that makes your nights brighter and warmer still.



  1. Dave,

    New Year’s is a dissapointment? Can’t you be normal and have bad birthdays, awkward mothers’ day, or even a drunken Halloween where you end up dress as a cup between two blow up dolls?

    Happy Holidays,

  3. Dave,
    I’ve just happened across your blog – one of the funniest and best ever (IMHO). Keenly awaiting the candy awesomeness and to see if you can top Minas Tirith šŸ™‚

    Keep up the good work.

  8. also, i grew up in arcata, california, which i’m assuming you probably either went through or passed nearby on your roadtrip. trinidad isn’t too far from there so it was cool to see a picture of that, and that strip of wood (cannot for the life of me figure out what it’s called) is where my family and i walked out to to spread my grandmother’s ashes. i unfortunately live in nebraska now, but i miss that beauty everyday.
