Just Light It, Linda

For reals….

Now obviously I am not endorsing:

  • Lighting cats, or any other animal on fire.
  • Wokking your cat or any other animals
  • Self Harm to depressed humans of depressed animals.

I am also not insinuating:

  • That your name is Linda
  • That all cats talk
  • That this particular cat has given up on life and isn’t, in fact, trying to make light of the desperate feelings we all may get from time to time by being cute and sarcastic.

Some days are definitely harder than others to get motivated to do literally anything. Sometimes, I want to “if I fits, I sits” into a wok and tell Linda to light ‘er up.

But I won’t go and wok myself. And I won’t give up, despite feeling completely defeated most of the time.

Just because my life’s work has been stopped for who knows how long, and after 25 years of building my company, the first year I was actually going to be able to pay myself a salary, everything got cancelled #cuzcovid, doesn’t mean I am going to wok myself. And you certainly shouldn’t go wok yourself, either.

But speaking of wokking yourself… Has anyone used this downtime to master any cooking skills? Start a cooking blog? Write a cook book? Boil water for the first time? Master the art of toast? Eat an “apple”?

Here’s your chance to go plug yourself instead.


Laura Needs Answers

You’re late.

Look, I get it. Trust me. No one is more on a need to know basis than you, Laura. There are close to 40 million people in my industry (live events) out of work, with no end in sight and not a penny of financial support coming in from anywhere. No one wants to hire us because no one understands what we do (despite being extremely over-qualified in many cases) because our sole job is to be unseen and unheard, making all of that magic ready for you to absorb at that Kenny G show you have tickets to, Laura.

But someone tremendously smart…a stable genius if you will, someone who probably knows more about viruses than anyone, has assured us that one day you’ll wake up, in America, and it’ll just be gone.


I wish I had thought of this. Setting an exact date that things would go back to normal. Thanks, Laura, for writing what everyone was thinking but understands is logistically impossible to answer, so keeps it to themselves.

Tell me about some of the ridiculous statements you have heard regarding nailing down an exact date when Covid will end.
