Pict-Tastic!

What’s going on my little JPUSAs? Oh yes, that’s right! For those of you who had already been trying to collect on my life insurance, I’m still alive and ready to rock your world baby! Yeah! So where have I been the last three weeks? Eh, lazy actually! Ha! No, I have been working 6 days a week now since the official voice of Encompass Media is busy trekking around the back jungles of Brazil, so that has kept me busy. But other than that, I’m still just kick’n it for realsies my friends!

So I guess since I abandoned you for three weeks I kinda have to make up for it huh? Well, we all know I am all about getting you stuff to win you back over (it’ll be all right baby), so tonight I took the time to finish editing my pictures from my Wyoming Vacation and I posted them for your viewing pleasure in the Joelika Gallery! Oh yeah! Now you too can experience the joys of the Teton Village, or the Teton National Park. Ever been to Yellowstone? Well you have now buddy! And the best part is it doesn’t cost you a dime (even though it probably should). I’ve done all the work for you! So sit back, open up your favorite can of Dr. P, and give your eyes a show! Whooo!

So since I’ve been working everyday like a real person I’ve got to experience a lot of different people who come into the EM shop. Probably one of my most favorite has to be the foreign people who bring in tapes to get converted so they’ll play here on US TVs (I could get into the specifics if you really wanted, but for those who would get it, you know, your standard PAL/SECAM to NTSC transfer… blah blah blah blah blah). But what’s so great about them is that in most of their countries, they are used to bartering, so they always haggle me on price. “Oh no my friend, that is too much! How about $15 instead?”

“Uh, no. You actually wanted your tape like two days before everyone else who was here a week ago, so I had to bust my rear to get yours and everyone else’s done so everyone could do the little happy dance. I don’t think I am going to cut you a deal yet too.”

Then they give me that smile, you know the one… the toothless, look at me, I’m like a 5 foot tall baby grin, then I just can’t help but want to give them a break. Man, they are too good! I remember when I was in Mexico, the store keepers would love to see me come in because I wouldn’t barter at all! “How much do you want for this? Oh, OK”. I’d feel bad because I thought I was ripping them off if I tried to go cheaper! Oh well, it just goes to show, it never hurts to ask huh?

With me working like mad, updates maybe a little spotty, but I’ll try to get back on my game. So until next time. Look at my pictures!
