Hey, Moonrise!

Turns out I can help you out.
I guess I don't need to be looking for a job after all.
Latest from the rumour factory aka is that I'm secretly a married internet billionaire.
Made my fortune selling stuff to burners below cost.
Apparently I make up the losses in volume???
Never mind.
Accounting is more flexible in fantasyland, I suppose.

If you see my wife or business, let me know.
Seem to be misplaced.

Next, I'll be a cat burglar with 50,000 cats hidden away in a suisse bank account!

YES! oh yes

Cafe' Dogs (coffe and hot dogs)
if i towed a mobile coffee trailer with a motorbike MCC
or if it was hot dogs it could be hot hogs? (as long as its a harley)

i was happy in my dead end low paid job till i read this, time to have ambition again i think.

I've seen much worst restaurant themes than AK Cafe.

At least it wouldn't be dull.

Many years ago I decided that I wanted a job that would pay a good salary and be fun to go to every day. I liked working on Mustangs so I opened a Mustang repair, restoration and parts shop. That was a little over 35 years ago. I am still working, still having fun and still making a decent salary. Near the end of August we just close the doors for three weeks. All of my employees, with one exception attend BM and work on the Fire Art Safety Team....

The job I have is actually better than I ever dreamed I could possibly have. So I certainly cannot complain.

Having said that, I formerly posted that I would love to do Retrofrolic 24/7. Well,,,, we have a place coming up for rent next door and we are hoping to open something like Retrofrolic in it. Hopefully, it will at least pay for itself and possibly help fund the camp. We won't have the lease until July and will need to do some SOUNDPROOFING and REDECORATING; therefore, we won't have it actually up and running until after BM2011. Trish and I are pretty excited about it!

This job already exists.
But I could tell you a few fables about getting dream jobs.
If you're good, it always becomes a job.
Maybe not drudgery, but it can ruin your enjoyment of something special.
What is a dream, may not be a dream job at all.

When I visited a company I'm interested in working for, one of my goals is to destroy my fantasy of what it will be like, working in this capitalists paradise.
I approached the visit as a job.
I specifically looked for the flaws and the people that are unhappy there, and I found them.
Still interested.

Besides my experiences, I've known many people that have chased and sometimes caught their dream job.
Even rock goddess.

Choose carefully.

No, that'd be a dream vacation. I used to think it'd be great, until I became friends with the person who actually had that job.

I'm not sure just wanting to give your meat away qualifies you as a butcher.

GET IT? Penis.

This thread is STILL going on and nobody's offered me any obligation-free large sums of money. Hrmph. :evil:
