September 23, 2004
Mr. Unstoppable came in to my office yesterday and said he wanted to go see a movie and did I have any suggestions. I told him I hate most of the new movies but that I saw a real odd one but I was hesitant to recommend it to him. But, of course, I did and kicked myself the rest of the day, imagining him in a darkened theater cursing my name and spitting.

This morning Dave came in and looked at me funny. “What did you go see?” I asked, somewhat defensive. “I went and saw Napoleon Dynamite,” he said looking at me sideways. “And?” I said expecting the worst. “And I loved it!” he said laughing. Amazing. We laughed and related our favorite parts and I’d tell you mine but I don’t want to ruin it for you.

I took Samantha to lunch at El Encanto. Just beautiful out, so we sat outside ($24 biz account). Got some good marketing ideas from her. She is a natural born upseller.

Started on a “Good Saddle-Bad Saddle” scratchboard. Going to be a funny shirt whether you know the source of the saying, or not.

Finally got a haircut yesterday. Bev does a great job. Guys my age need a combo of clippers, straight razor, lawn mower and sheep shears. It’s damned embarrassing, but Bev makes it seem normal and funny and so I tip her well, as I should ($20 cash). Plus, she tells funny stories, mostly about huntin’ elk and inlaws. Both funny subjects.
