Random 5

Yes, it's early and there's lots to get done, so I only had the time and attention span to do an early random 5 this week. The tunes are up on the right:

It's Martini Time—Reverend Horton Heat

I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself—Dusty Springfield

Cornfed Dames—The Cramps

Dixie Fried—Carl Perkins

Do the Clam—Elvis Presley

Good news on the job front. I just had a proposal accepted for my first side job of 2008. What's the deal? I'm going to work on the company's handcuffing policy for their loss prevention agents, consult on a script for a training video, and then provide some hands-on training. They haven't decided whether I'm going to actually appear in the video myself. I have a lot of reading and writing to do in the next few days, so I won't be around much.

It's sure nice to have some work fall my way, though. I'm so happy I feel like doing the Clam:

A list that starts with the Reverand and ends with Elvis is always a good list.

Congrats on the new side gig.

I'd like to hear the soundtrack on the training video.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Well done on the side job! If you do appear in the video, make sure you use some of those same awesome moves as the clam guy. You'll be mesmerizing.

I hope the video includes the Cramps' song, "Can Your Pussy Do the Dog?"

Videos and handcuffs. What could go wrong there?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Way to go on the side job. Everyone needs a little on the side.

Freida Bee said...

I almost want to be in your instructional handcuff video, there. Thanks for the linky love. I had never been over and must admit being drawn into the vortex here. Great posts!

Dale said...

Happiness is a warm clam.

Bubs said...

Dale, that sounds obscene.

Freida, welcome! Thanks for stopping by and stroking my rampaging ego.

Dr MVM, no doubt about it. All these jobs, hopefully, will help pave the way to a happy retirement in a year or two.

Kirby, I know. I'm thinking of growing an awesome cop/porn mustache just for the occasion. And buying some aviator glasses.

TIOP, the client is providing music. I'm sure it will be something inoffensive, damn them.

Barbara, just like Chris Walken, I try and incorporate a dance move into every role.

GM...see my response to TIOP.

Coolcat, Skylersdad, Erik, dguzman, thanks!
