Champions Of The World.

Here it is, December first, 5:30 am and I am wide awake and about to jump in the shower and wash my hair. In a couple of hours I'm going to go open the bookstore doors and let in all the shoppers who come out of the woodwork at Christmas time.

I just love working in a store at Christmas time, especially a book store. I always get these folks who have no idea what literature is and who are there to purchase something for the readers in their families.

Most of them will look for a bargain and a fair share will ask me to discount their purchases for whatever reason they can devise.

Very rarely do I even come close to having a melt down with them, even at this time of the year. They amuse me. Even the rudest of them. And I'm pretty successful at getting them to return, even the ones who tell me they will never be back because I wouldn't slash the prices of their books.

I'm going to have a great day today. And part of the reason for that is because I'm going to put into practice BBC's wonderful words of wisdom to me;

"Fuck you, get out of my way. I'm moving on."

And if you think I might be talking to YOU, you are probably correct.

Thanks Billy.

Rock on, Freddie.


  1. Billy is maybe the wisest man I've ever known - don't tell him though!

    'Course you're hot!

    You're hot, I'm old and fat. It's the way we are!...;-)

    Have a great life never mind a great day! x

    ps - Caz read your last post and sends her love. She never comments. Reckons one mad blogger in the house is more than enough!

  2. I am so with you on this one...and thankful that you do not discount your sharing of your thoughts with us...

  3. Four, please give Caz a big hug from me, ok? it was not an easy decision whether or not to post it.

    Brother, xoxoxo

  4. Ha ha ha, yeah, get the fuck out of the way. It's your parade, they can get in line behind it or sit on the curb and watch it but they can't impede it, without risking your rath. :-)

    I just love working in a store at Christmas time, especially a book store.

    I've never worked in a book store but I can assure you that these days I really enjoy not working at all except for the things I choose to work on. Fuck trying to please others.

    My favorite book store? The library, it saves me tons of money and I don't have room for a lot of books anyway.

    Would you believe that I typed out eleven chapters of "Think on These Things" ? Well can't get it as an e-book, and maybe one of these days I'll type out the rest of the chapters on it, of course so I can edit in my own thoughts.

    Anyway, have a great evening. B

  5. Reminded me of an old song from about the 60's.

    I'm going out in a blaze of glory with or without you.....


Go ahead, you can do it! Just whistle if you want me. You know how to whistle, don't you? You just put your lips together and BLOW....
