How To Stay Fit and Make Money

Here’s another shameless plug… of sorts…

I’ve already passed this along to several of my friends via email, but thought I would post it here too.

If you know anyone who fits the bill, drop me a line and I’ll put you in touch with my sister:

-FROM DEBBY (pictured seated on the machine above)–

As many of you know I have a background in dance and fitness. Through friends I have been contacted by an event production company in Chicago looking for employees to work an event in San Diego.

The event, the IHRSA trade show, a convention and show for the fitness industry, is downtown at the convention center March 5-8.

We are looking for FIT, ENERGETIC, POSITIVE and FRIENDLY people with endurance who would be able to demonstrate new workout equipment and have fun. The hours are approximately 6:30am-2:30pm and we will need people for 3 and possibly 4 days.

The pay rate is $300 per day. (note this would be on a contract, one-time basis)

If you or anyone you know might be interested please let me know and pass this along asap.

Keeping Fit From the Inside Out!

NOTE: Debby is a trained Pilates instructor and Gyrotonic instructor in Encinitas, if you know anyone who wants to get fit from the inside out!

Despite looking phallic…

… it’s really quite beautiful.

It’s been a long time since I lived in Chicago. In fact, it’s been nearly 15 years since I have been back in California. Where did / does the time go?

Since I left Chicago, so many things have changed. Millenium Park did not exist when I lived there. Marshall Field’s is now Macy’s. State Street (that great street) now allows cars again. And most importantly, my friends Ralph and Martin and Kris and Nancy … no longer exist in Chicago. I really have no reason to go there anymore.

Except maybe to see The Chicago Spire.


scheduled to open in 2010. which really is just around the corner.

Its not Easy being Green er, uh, Blue

Maybe not really blue, but definitely out of sorts. Is it winter? the holidays? Or one more step in the grieving process… post holiday blahs? post vacation (I have a boring life) blues?

We are almost done closing up my Dad’s estate. For our trip to Hawaii, Debby and I were able to use my Dad’s US Air air miles for a free trip (did YOU know you can inherit miles?). When we got home the lawyer told us that the IRS is going to forgive the penalties and interest they wanted to extract from us. So that’s good news, right?

Somehow it makes my Dad’s death all the more real. Finalizing makes things, well, final.

It is time to move on, I feel it. And even though in some ways having all this paperwork pending keeps me closer to my Dad, I know it’s closer in a thoroughly unhealthy way. I’m just not entirely sure how to push through. I have projects of my own I am not working on. Writing I am not doing. So if anyone has any tips, or recommendations for a good therapist, let me know. 🙂
