My life with the cat circus: New Mexico, Few Facts To Go (#5)1:22:00 AMConstrux Nunchux
I haven't even been on the job for the 90 day probation period, and I already have something of note to discuss:
So far, this weekly installment has been a cutesy travelogue with me wearing cat ears. It will continue to be so, but I actually garnered press.
Here is the main post, but click on the link if you want to read the slew of insightful responses:
"Wife's coworker and some of her extended family bought us tickets, so we took the three-year old and went. All I can say is wow. While the show was interesting, within 90 seconds I wrote a note on my phone and showed it to my wife - surrounded by lesbians and Obama supporters. She laughed.
The two cat wranglers, well, one was a cat lady in her 40s, so I can see that. The other one, mid-20s, male (at least I think) and about what you'd expect. I have to think at what point in one's life do you decide to perform a cat circus, especially as a young, white male."

And I suppose my defense would be pretty obvious to our Chux Chazerz who all knew I was destined for this line of work. Anyway, it's just interesting to me that my presence struck this guy (at least I think)--a presence described very much like a police report--enough to post publicly about it. And other than that, all I can tell my Chux Chazers is that whether I fit the type or not, I'm very pleased with myself and I'm damn good at it.
Here is an article for which I was interviewed briefly, but not featured:
This past week was spent in Albuquerque, NM, which I thought was a really lovely piece of ground. Here's some footage:
