On Wednesday, I took my 6th trip out to Alcatraz island as a chaperone for groups of teens touring the western states.
On the ferry ride back to the San Francisco, a seagull pooed on me. As this is a pretty well known omen of good luck, I, of course, purchased $5 in California Super Lotto Quick Picks. (Such frivolous spending!)
I had no idea that my good fortune would actually be this. That's right. It aired :)
The CBS News Early Show funemployment segment aired on Thursday morning!
It's pretty heavily focused on the FUN (*sneer in the direction of the dingbat dude on the beach and playing golf*) and skips over the 20 minutes I spoke to them about working odd jobs, taking classes at City College, volunteering, pinching every penny, etc etc. But hey, that's television!
In Housekeeping News:
I am now a dot org! You can now get here through www.funemploymentblog.org (Funemployment Blog; making your life easier, and a little funner)
Thanks to everyone for the great comments, emails, and general confidence that I will eventually be both fun and employed once again :)
