Weird Al just confirmed that his newest record “Mandatory Fun”is entering the Billboard charts at number 1
After 3 decades, Weird Al finally hit number 1, ladies and gentlemen
That should be inspirational as hell to everyone here on Tumblr; if you stick to what you’re good at and never give up, perhaps all of us could one day become successful; if “Weird” Al Yankovic can do it, why not the rest of us?
I’m going to go make myself a couple of Twinkie Wiener Sandwiches…
So, what I had started to think was impossible has actually come to pass: I got the job(!)
Not only did I get the job, but it’s a full time job, something that, at least out in Michigan where I’m from, is almost impossible to find
As a guy that’s never had a job before, this is a bit daunting, to say the least, but again, that’s how a lot of people think before they start doing new things, so who knows?
The job is called “wares specialist”, which means that I’m the guy that’s going to be in charge of pricing stuff; let’s see if I end up making a bunch of people really angry or not(!)
It’s funny though, and probably incredibly appropriate that when I got the call I was looking through Undercover Tourist…that’s where you get discount tickets to the Disney Parks (and other places primarily located in Florida or California), for the uninitiated
So, interview number two went fairly well, I’d like to think
I applied for a few different jobs down there, so I was able to pick between them. which should be a pretty good sign
I even picked a job with full time hours, which is something I didn’t expect to be able to get, so now apparently all he has to do is check my references, and I should be good to go
Now, of course, nothing is set in stone yet, but I’d like to stay optimistic!
So, you know that scene in Major League where they’re handing out those red cards at the beginning of the movie that tell the players whether or not they’ve been cut? Tom Berenger’s character, about to open the door to his locker first says “Come on, Jake. It’s only your life!”…
That’s pretty much exactly how I’m feeling about this interview. Let’s hope I get some sleep tonight…
"Chopped Teen Tournament"…
Food Network, just call it “Battle Royale” so everyone knows what the hell you’re talking about, please
