Daily Update – 03/17/14


Good evening gang! I do hope your St. Patrick’s Day went well. Overall ours went smooth, no pinching, green beer or leprechauns to speak of but all in all a good day.

The days on the calender seem to be getting in a hurry as I get closer to the launch of the TV version of the Toy Box. No pressure though, it’s all about play and a variety of it so stress is most certainly not allowed. Plus I’m having a ton of fun!

The day job kept me busy as the chief was out of the tepee today and I was left to man the village. Not a bad thing really. It gives me the opportunity to go into super multi-tasker mode. Honestly I liked that. Wouldn’t want to do it every day but its a nice change up and keeps me sharp. The only real difference between today and any other day is that I plop my posterior back in the air chair to spit out the local headlines. which you can see here:

Playing “news guy” is fun but not something I would ever want to do for the rest of my life. Too depressing. Thankfully the chief will be back tomorrow and I can comfortably kick back at master control. Plus after watching the playback it’s simply too much “Jim” for a good broadcast. Between the rip and read with the news my pipes are heard on all of the commercials. One must know overkill when you spot it.  Ego be damned. Plus the uploaded version looks like all of the blacks in the video were hit with  bleach bomb. Terrible.

One thing that I did get to have a lot of fun with today was the article on a CD I picked up over the weekend. As I try to get the “Thrift Store Flipping” segment back on track the family and I made the rounds at the area thrift shops this past Saturday. Tomorrow I’ll talk about one of the unseen perils of this project, bit of a bummer really but I’d rather keep this one on a positive note.

edwards_0001 Pickin’s were very slim but I did score some cool books and a CD for personal consumption. More about the books later but the CD was a winner on so many levels. You can read all about it HERE. It also gave me the motivation to get another segment of the Toy Box in place; the Listening Room.

Well, the clock is ticking and the sandman is calling my name. So off to bed for your old buddy Jimbo. One last tip for you before I wrap this one up. As you have probably figured out I’m pretty easy to amuse and I love a good deal. The Mrs. introduced me to an experience that satisfied both of those needs; a shopping trip to Rue 21. Dude, if you have never been there, pop in.

lrg_logo_rue21We just recently had one come to town and I figured 1. it was a girl’s store and 2. I am way too old to be in there. I was wrong on both accounts.  Not only did I find a pair of high top sneakers that make me giggle a little (they’re black, shiny and faux snakeskin with white soles) but they were crazy cheap. $5 bucks later and I’ve got shiny shoes. Plus another Lincoln later I picked up a couple of belts, a hat and two watches. Do the math gang, that’s a buck a piece for brand new stuff! I dig it.

Again, thanks for stopping by, catching up or just being nosy. Now, Go Play!
