read barn knew job

so....it's been a while since i last wrote. my impression is that no one reads this shit....this is for the 4 or 5 folks who might read my blog. well.... my semi-retired couch jumping lifestyle has dissolved. i'm officially out of cash.. so now it's back to work i go. i know what you are thinking..."what a lazy bastard"..but... i had money saved and sold several paintings.... which allowed me to not work for several months. just because i didn't have a job doesn't mean i wasn't working. i finished several paintings-wrote poems and songs-did some nephew sitting-cut some grass-read various books and manuals-searched and researched-experimented-blogged-you get the picture. for the past month or so i have been looking for my next job. after a string of shitty restaurant work and annoying co-workers...i wasn't about to just settle for the first thing that came my way. finally...it has happened...after my friend patrick quit his miserable job...where he worked with mostly morons...we decided to start working for ourselves. so as of monday... i now work for eastern kentucky properties (which is just pat and I)...we are doing some remodeling for now..then in a month or so we are going to start building his first rental property. i relish the idea of doing something different everyday-i love working outside-no annoying co-workers (except when pat and i talk about politics)-getting paid "under the table"-being able to smoke pot on the job-not having to dress up-and most of all i enjoy not having to work for a corporation. of course... i have only been doing this for a few days so it might end up sucking too. i am however going to try my best to keep a good attitude and stick with it. i've done a bunch of work like this before so i'm not going in blind....however...after being off for a while i imagine i'm going to be fairly sore for a while. i'm hoping that my long lost muscles will find their way home and that my gut will find another. then perhaps the ladies will start paying attention to me again. anyway...i'm also excited about my future living arrangement. after some cleaning and a few other things i'm going to be living it the top part of patrick's giant barn.(no animals live there anymore) it's just what i have dreamed of....i'll have the necessities neatly placed in one corner of the barn and then the rest will be open studio space... room for painting-sculptures-all my instruments. no neighbors so being to loud isn't an issue. i can't wait to get in there so we can record some audio/video. well before i get too far ahead of myself i should probably stop writing about my future and deal with my present....which entails getting up early. no more staying up all night and sleeping all day.

i almost met you one time. i've heard your name a bunch and folks always assume i know you. sometimes i read your blog. I like it. if i were you i'd be really excited about the new job and barn and stuff. and getting up early starts to feel pretty natural after a while. we humans are meant to be awake when it is light.

sounds like the kinda place i can dig...
plus i may end up homeless their soon...
and god knows the barn will sleep better than that arboretum did.

exactly...i mean, night vision doesn't just escape the human abilities...we'velost it over the years due to too much sun exposure...i've been re-honing my night vision skills. there're a few cats in the neighborhood that seem to be totally wierded out by my nightly slinking about, but whatever.
