Trapped in a fishbowl wearing a nametag that says "bait"

Economic down turns seem to be keeping my hobbies at bay... and the laser on shore. Raps may have to sleep through a season sitting in oshkosh (yes that is a real place) until her skipper can find his destiny. Witnesses can only confirm the bitter and harsh flogging my hometown inflicted on me; but my resolve is stronger now than ever. I will fight my way out of this paper bag, and some day soon I will raise my mustache high and say.... "do you want fries with that?"

An MBA and a degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry should qualify me for that, shouldn't it? Maybe I could work at a circus. I have always loved those clown cars and elephants. I wonder if they are hiring....

In the meantime I'll just keep this hook warm and repeat my mantra... here fishy fishy fishy

Isn't that a frickin' shameful irony? When you're working, it's hard to find the free time to sail as much as you'd like. When you're out of work, it's hard to afford to sail as much as you'd like.

I actually finally bought my boat because while out of work, I fantasized about sailing the days away while waiting for resume responses.

Good luck Raps, if you were on the West Coast, you could crew on the Good Ship Lady Bug. We don't allow weird crew either so you'd feel at home.

Thanks evk4,

I'm hoping to still splash this year, but I have to keep a close eye on what the wife likes to call reality. Your boat sounds like a lot of fun; crewing for you would be a blast I'd imagine.
