the Bucky Four-Eyes Cotillion

Those conspiring against me obviously took a day off

The bad news: I have to dig out my never-worn white bras to wear under the white blouse I just had to buy, because all my dress shirts are some variation of black, to go with the color of my cold, shriveled heart.

The good news: The reason for the sudden need for virgin-colored clothing is that I got a job!

I shit you not. The call came yesterday afternoon, and I start my training on Wednesday. This time around, I'm moving out of the realm of the computer geek and into the kingdom of the camera nerd. While I would prefer to be photographing nekkid vixens finding inventive uses for in-season vegetables, I'm afraid that won't be part of my job description. But I will be working behind the camera (not in front, people, so stop gripping your keyboards in front of your face with the sheer horror of it all), and will probably pick up lots of tricks that will be helpful in the advancement of my true calling (snapping candid shots of my Homies and action figures).

Is it a high-paying gig? No, not by a long shot. But does it sound like fun? Hell, yeah!

Annie Liebowitz had best watch her back.

17 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Congratulations!

I already have visualized you at the Sears Portrait Studio waving a bear at the kiddos.
(It was funny, if not a little scary.)

Waving the bear. Oh, that could be taken a variety of ways, some of which would scare the children.

Yay job!!!

Congrats on getting the job. If it branches out into porn, let me know. I have some money I'd like to invest.

Congrats on the job!

Incidentally, while talking on the phone to my mom, she suddenly exclaimed, "Stop wiping your ass on my head!" in reference to her ornery kitty. Naturally, I thought of you.

A tip: for tots who won't smile, make up a song that has their name in it -- lots. This, I have learned about photographing kids. Doesn't have to rhyme, or make sense, or anything else. Just musical, and name. :)

Well, I'll try again to say something about how perfect this'll be for delivering you ironic tales of human misery, desperation, and misplaced egoism, which will, in turn, prompt you to entertain us with the telling.
YAY!

Congratulations, Bucky. I am much relieved that you now have something to do besides snapping candid shots of your Homies and action figures.

YAY! Not necessarily the "job" part of things, but definitely for the "paycheck" part. Good on ya, girl!

Congrats!
Too bad about the white bras, though...

Damn shame about the white, but send any extra nekkid vixens my way. I'm old and beat to shit, so the sight alone would probably kill my tattered ass quickly. That way it won't be traumatic for them in the least.

(Belated) Congratulations on the new job! So what new action figure will you purchase with the proceeds?
