The perfect placeholder - Sing With Me If It's Just For Today... — LiveJournal
If I should fall behind, Guyster, wait for me.
The perfect placeholder
I was offered a great gig today and I start Monday. It's a 12-14 week job as talent exec on a new show for National Lampoon. Beautiful office, great view of LA and some old friends to work with. I also get to hire Mickey, my best girlfriend and confidante, as my assistant. By the time the job is done, the radio network I've been working on will be fully financed.

After the meeting I was flushed with excitement. All I wanted to do was call Billy and tell him. I know how happy he would be and the surprise that would have been waiting for me at home : )

But I called some friends, also very happy for me, then I went to a friend's house to watch Survivor. Now I'm home with Bob and we are going to bed and cuddle and fall asleep thinking of all the things we have to do on Monday.

Current Mood: happy happy
Current Music: Living Proof - Bruce Springsteen

Wow, National Lampoon. Even though it's not what it used to be, what a great gig. I remember back in my first internship of carting up the week's worth of True Facts (from vinyl!!) and laughing my ass off all the way. In fact, long before they ever published any trade PB's, I was meticulously cutting photos from the True Facts section and saving them in my own little nerdbook.

Best movie marquee ever;

Hehe I used to have nerdbooks of my own - just different subjects. In fact, I think I still keep nerd books to some degree. They come in very handy. It'll be a fun gig. We're going to book a lot of the old alumni - at least the ones who are still alive.

Mucho congrats--sounds like a good project.

I think it will be a fun and intense project. This time, I really like the people with whom I'll be working. That'll make a big difference in my inherently bad attitude : )

Good for you! And lets not forget Bob. Give him a special treat tonight, to celebrate!

Bob got a bacon and cheese "Beggin' Strip," which he loved but it gave him bad gas which I did not love. But that's ok. We're both happy. Thanks Rob.

WOW! that is amazing and exciting i can imagine. (are you tired of hearing that from people yet) National Lampoons is a Big deal. and I am sure Bob was excited too. (especially after his Beggin strip treat) now can you send some of those good vibes up this way?

Hey thanks! I am excited about it and so is Bob. The Beggin' Strips though give him gas which isn't good for either one of us.
