Woooooowhoooo. Number 8 is now complete! I like this one.
The complete tute is here.
Speaking of martini glasses, I was a bartender for years. Mixing drinks and chattering away at customers and cocktail waitresses is a blast. Now there’s a job that fed my random, nocturnal nature. It takes a certain skill and mindset to be a bartender. It uses your head and your hands, requires a bit of diplomacy, the ability to count, and multitask and if you’re lucky it will amuse and astound you. Okay the people you meet amuse and astound.
What else have I occupied myself with over the years.
I worked in a retail store. I worked for an arts council. Wrote a grant to the National Endowment for the Arts. We received it too. I spent two years teaching in a theatre project for kindergarten through high school. I’ve waited tables, both food and cocktail and worked in beverage management for a hotel.
I’ve worked for the state employment service. I’ve even been a janitor. I’ve been the entire office for a family-owned business.
Once, a very long time ago, I was hired by Radio City Music Hall as an intern. I didn’t start the job. That’s a regret. Apparently they called when I came home….and no one mentioned it to me until months later.
I’ve been a technical writer for knit and crochet and designed some of both. I wrote blurbs for the how-to’s published by the same company. That was a blast.
Who knows what else.
And now I aspire to be a writer
If ever I can learn to keep my mind on the page and off the myriad number of projects lined up in my craft cave. Of course at this point, most of the projects are an exercise in writing. I’m really hoping to learn. I may be an old dog, but I’ve got hope there are still a few tricks left.
Sounds like I have something illegal in mind. Well, I’ve always said if I could sell it by the pound I’d be a rich woman.
There goes that innuendo-laden wit.
Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for stopping by!
It’s been my pleasure.
