Getting A Little Bit Of Love; Interviewed Again

What a strange week this seems to have been. It started out with my buying my first couple of pairs of shorts ever, with my wife’s help, and finding out that I can actually wear a waist size of 42; I haven’t worn a size 42 waist in 20 years! Working out seems to be doing at least part of the job; glucose isn’t down though.

Then a consulting gig I’m supposed to be working hasn’t started yet; I haven’t even heard from the client in about a week. That’s how it goes sometimes when you’re an independent consultant, which is why I was so key on my earlier post this week about getting some money upfront; it’s not always the fault of the people trying to do work for you.

And now this; I’ve been interviewed again, this time by Christian of Smart Boy Designs. I was kind of surprised because I actually did the interview back in April, then forgot about it until I was going through old emails yesterday and started to wonder about it. And then there it was this morning; nice timing, eh?

Of course, it was also fun being a part of Ileane’s Basic Blog Tips this week with my post on 5 Ways Your Blog Might Be Irritating People. I really put out for that post because I always believe that you give as much to others as you’d give to yourself, and if you can you should give more since you’re reaching out to a new audience that you’re hoping you can drive to your site.

All that and tonight I’ll be staying in a hotel about 5 minutes from my house in a room with a jacuzzi… all by myself. My wife is holding a large garage sale with her friends and asked if I not be present; I can take a hint. 🙂 So I’ll be pampered tonight on my own, then heading to the casino in the morning. Yes, I do live a strange life; but it’s pretty fun as well. Is it any wonder why I smile so much?

  1. I just read the interview and really enjoyed it. I must say that my most fave answer was what makes you happy – that was the best. I commented on the interview 🙂 it was a longer post.

    Have a good weekend.

    1. The casino part is Saturday after I stay at the Hampton Inn on Route 31. I could have stayed at Turning Stone but it costs more than double what I’m paying tonight. And then roller derby; that should be interesting as this time Mel’s skating.

  2. You were almost right, Dennis. I found some of my books in boxes she hadn’t covered ready to go. lol

    1. Believe it or not Dennis, there’s really no way to sneak up on my house unless you don’t mind going through the woods, and if you know me you know that even in my neighborhood you’re not getting me in there!

  3. That was a nice interview with Christian, and I enjoyed your post over at Ileane’s. Have fun on your night out. With such fun activities, you did leave the laptop at home, right?

    1. Vernessa, at the last moment I did leave the laptop home, figuring I could access pretty much anything through the phone. Turns out I was partially correct, but I had a lot of fun with the jacuzzi. 😉

  4. What a fine week it has been, watching you have all this fun!
    That interview with Christian is really good.

    Enjoy the festivities!



    1. Thanks Mitch. It’s been a really strange week overall, and this weekend was even stranger at times.

    1. Thanks Christian; I had a great time answering your questions. Interviews folks; I’m here. lol

  5. Hey Mitch! 😀 Happiness can indeed be found in just simple things. I love how you have answered that. I so enjoy chocolates, too! 😀

    1. Thanks Grace. I’m wishing I had some chocolate right now, but then I’m always wishing that. lol

  6. Nice one Mitch, by the way, I just saw that you have implemented Google+ button. This will be very important in the future. And another by the way, you look good with Red Socks shirt!

    1. Thanks Carl. lol As for the Gllgoe +, Sire came up with the idea, and though I haven’t written about it I figured why not.

      1. It will be a good idea, actually for first time Google have mention on the official blog that there will be close relationship between social marketing and SEO in the near future.

      2. It should be interesting to see where this all goes, Carl. We all know that someone is going to try to game the system.

  7. I had a good time enjoying the interview, Mitch. You didn’t live a strange life, you live a wonderful life.I’m jealous of you…;)

  8. A strange life but a fun life. I think variety is the key to happiness.
    My wife is having a girlie night tonight and I’ve been ‘invited’ – code for go and walk the dog…

    1. Matt, that’s funny as sin! I get those rarely, but when I do, my wife knows I’m heading to the casino.

  9. Just read it. Nice interview Mitch. I especially liked comments on your approach to life (laugh a lot and be honest in writing). I never got bored reading your content mainly because every single post is out of own personal experience.

    1. Thanks Ajith. When I think I’m starting to take life too seriously I try to find ways to alleviate stress and just stay on an even keel. That’s why I try to see most of my encounters as stories of some sort; always gives me new perspectives, and of course stuff to write about.
