Personally attacked for the 2nd time and still no justice.

I'm seeing if I can maintain my status as the Rasheed Wallace of SCMB - they always get the 2nd guy for a T.

But that's ok...ball don't lie...never has...never will.

About to leave for my interview for sales at a BMW dealer...

Got invited to the last round of interviews for an outside sales ad gig later this week. It continues...

Sounds like you're landing on your feet, Marc.

I really love real estate, I want to get my license and my dream is to sell luxury homes. Maybe I've been watching too much "Million Dollar Listing." It's like this itch I'm dying to scratch, but the problem is it takes a long time to ramp up in the business and I have living expenses to pay now.

The BMW dealer liked me and is inviting me back for the next round. I guess this initial one was a meet and greet so they can weed people out.

Selling BMWs is a pretty interesting job, I imagine. I've never really looked closely at one, but from what I understand, they sell themselves.

What a day!!! When it rains, it pours. I got a call this morning after a weekend of anxiety and doubting. I got the job offer and I'm excited. I'll be selling online ads (Google, social media, etc.) for a really good company. I'll be meeting with small business owners all across my area to help them expand their presence online and ultimately get more business. No one uses the YellowPages anymore, but most small businesses don't have the expertise or time to run and optimize campaigns online, so it'll feel rewarding to help them, and also potentially make a good living!

I fly to Dallas later this month for a week of "boot camp" training at the company's HQ.

Try to take in a ballgame at the Rangers' stadium. I think you'll be impressed.

I watched The Graduate again the other night.

Back in the day I was pretty indifferent on it but with the garbage being spewed out over the last 20 or so years it makes you appreciate a movie with actual character development.

No way it could be released today. It moves a little slow for its time...no chance in hell the young folks nowadays would tolerate a flick without boobs and bombs exploding through the screen every 3 seconds.

I spent 8 hours doing a clinical rotation for my EMT class today in my local ER. Nothing I'd never done before, although holding kids getting stitches is like trying to hold eels.

Amen...

Just watched Fail Safe with Henry Fonda...again for the upteenth time. Another movie that needs 'the want' to watch characters/plot being fleshed out which isn't a staple in today's instant gratification mode.

Ooh, that's a goodie.

Caught the end of Klute earlier today. Great picture and again, looks so much better in comparison to today's "films".
