The limo driver had to BRIBE an usher at the Staples Center ($20 payout) to get in and get hot burgers for the kids of The Client. The Client turned out to be a major rock star (I think) who saw me standing there. When he came up he looked at me nervously thinking I was gonna take pics of him and his kids.
When he saw I had no intention of doing such a thing, he looked at me and said "Thanks, Man."
*sigh* I dont even know who he was.
Anyway, the driver was telling me a lot of the ins and outs of being a driver to celebs, what to look out for, where to go. He also said the tips he gets AVERAGES $200. Goodness. So, having to lay out bribes to get hot burgers for the kids of a Client is par for the course.

And yet, Ive got nothing to complain about.
Oh sure, things arent PERFECT what with no money, temperamental laptop and all, but all things considered I aint doin badly at all.
Ive enrolled in a job program that feeds, clothes and houses me for free. And to make sure they get their funding, they dont want me to even look for a job for two weeks! Sure, they get 75% of my income to put it into savings (minus any bills I might have, of which I have none) so that I can get a good place and have some cash, but that isnt a bad thing.
And bonus, that moratorium on getting work gets me through this MercRX period, so I can lay low.
All in all, Im not doing badly, so I really have nothing to whine about. Dangit.
Again, a strong congratulations for my birthday sister Cyn on becoming a first time PUBLISHED novelist and author with a 3 book deal from a major publishing house.
Let me tell ya, she's been dreaming and working on this a long time.

Money and shelter (and food) concerns are coming to the forefront. Hard not to be stressed and concerned rather than hopeful. But I have to take care of them, no matter what.
I just flipped through Robert Shemin's book "How Come That Idiot's Rich and I'm Not?" and it basically gives the same advice. Act and believe things are going to be good and it will be. Ive totally seen and experienced the power of doing that, so Im already a convert.
