I Have A Retro Career

Some how I have gotten stuck in the 80s. I didn't even really like the 80s the first time around - i was young, awkward, unsure of myself. Now I'm old, awkward, and unsure of myself - so perhaps it's fitting.

It started earlier this year, when somebody introduced me to a very nice, very competant lawyer named Jeff Cohen. Jeff wanted to represent me in my writing and producing, and I heavily considered it. It wasn't until later that I realized that Jeff was, in fact, Chunk from The Goonies. I eventually decided against signing up with him - as great as he was, I wasn't ready to sign away 5% of my paycheck to him, truffle shuffle or no.

Then I got a job writing for Alf. The loveable alien puppet is attempting a comeback, Fridays at 11 on TVLand, with, of all things, a talk show. So for a few weeks, I was pitching jokes that would eventually be "said" by somebody's fur-covered left hand. Many of them had to do with cats.

Currently I'm writing for the Golden Girls. Not the show, mind you, but special features for an upcoming DVD of the show. I am watching episodes of the Golden Girls and getting paid for it.

And last night? I beat the guy who played Ben Seaver on Growing Pains in poker. Won a hundred bucks out of the deal. It would have been worth a hell of a lot more in the 80s.
