Que es, "fired"?

I can't believe it's already the eighth of Abril. I can't say much has happened this week, but maybe it has. It's hard to tell sometimes. Last Monday I started trying to learn Spanish via a set of accelerated learning cassettes (I gotta learn Spanish fast! I got a whole lotta Spanish shit I need to do) made by this company.

I like the quote from Earl Nightingale at the top of the page. I also like how there's an ellipsis (...) before the phrase: It's As Simple As That.

So far I haven't got past the middle of side one. I didn't expect the tapes to be so steeped in relaxation methodology -- I've been trying to listen to them at work because I figured, why learn something on my own time? My time is for drinking. But listening to language tapes while waitering has been unsuccessful thus far. For the first ten minutes Mr. Spanish (the voice on the tape) tries to lull the listener into a trance. A trance I figure I ought to resist, for now. If I'm going to be fired, I want to be lucid enough to know that I'm being fired. It's a rule I have.

I wonder if Nightingale-Conant would be interested in my own achievement-oriented cassette series: Quit Smoking By Smoking More Weed. Or the follow-up: Quit Smoking Weed By Smoking Cigarettes Again. Or the second follow-up (and potentially the biggest seller I think): Smoke Lots Of Cigarettes And Weed.

It's worked for me...

Fucking A. I'll buy your success tapes, Kinger.

Whaddup with the people's names on that company's site? Vic Conant's choice: A View From the Top by Zig Ziglar. John Abdo? "John Abdo is an expert in weight training, aerobics, polymetrics.." &c. Or my personal fave, Thirsting for God by Fr. Angelo Scolozzi, M.C.III.O and Dr. Lou Tartaglia.

I just can't picture M.C.III.O and Dr. Tartaglia in the same room together. And what does a rapping death-bot know about God, anyhow?

They list Lead the Field by Earl Nightingale as one of the "classic products." Once again, it's a get-rich-quick product that tells you to get-rich-quick by peddling get-rich-quick products. I can't tell if these people are postmodern geniuses or dumbass degenerate fucks.

Dumbass postmodern degenerate fucks.

I also like "Close The Deal" by Sandler Sales Institute. His other book was really good.

"The 10 Qualities of Charismatic People" is a nice one too. I bet the number one quality is not reading books on how to be charismatic.

Can you see any way that I could customize the phrase: Utilize the Power of "Charisma" For Yourself -- and use it on my personal crest?

I think utilize is one of my favorite words.

I wonder if we could get rich selling programs that teach you how to sell programs that teach you to sell get-rich programs.

Would we even have to do anything?

How's work going on that crest by the way? I think mine is now that sign of the guy slipping. I love it so much.

You could just say, "Utilize the Power of my Charisma" a lot at parties. For best results, translate into Latin, then add to crest.

I'm working on some schemes. One is "Fast Riches Through Gibberish." Another is "Don't Even Think About Quitting Smoking."

I thought about it, and that sign of the guy slipping is a great crest. Remember when Kerr used to draw those road-sign icons on our essays, of the guy shoveling shit?

But there's something very controlled and well thought out to a sign about a guy slipping.

Which is kinda like you.

Mine's still gonna be a dog fucking a cat.
