I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas. Here’s a humorous X-mas anecdote:
Justin and I went to lunch at a Chinese buffet called Zen Buffet in Woodland Hills CA. We were a little disappointed at the minimal selection of chicken choices and the quality of food in general, but it was Christmas, they were open, and we were happy. Until..
Justin walks up to the counter to pay. The woman says, “$21.60″ and Justin replies “No, separate please.” Then he makes a joke about not paying for my lunch, which backfires when we find out she had already separated the check.
“It’s Saturday. We have seafood. Buffet $17.99.”
We protested that we only ate chicken and avoided the seafood but it didn’t matter. Someone should have read the sign when we walked in, Justin.
After the surprise lunch bill, we decided to skip the other half of our Traditional Jewish Christmas, and not see a movie in a theater. Instead we rented Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare because there were no more copies of Black Ops.. and that was the rest of our weekend.
What did you do for Christmas this year? Post a lovely family Christmas photo greeting on my Facebook wall.
What’s your New Years resolution Adventure Paul?
I haven’t made a new years resolution in years because the goals in my life rarely end or begin on January 1st. However, this year, with January arriving, I’ve decided to make ONE New Years resolution that will help myself, my business, and possibly people in my life..
My New Years 2011 resolution is to organize.
Organize everything! Even my system of organizing needs organization. First thing to do is tackle that 12 foot stack of paperwork, mail, and financial records from 2010 before visiting my accountant. Second step is to make sure I don’t have a 12 foot stack of papers next year at this time.
What else is new Adventure Paul? You da man! For real bro!
Has anyone else noticed by now that I’ve developed a pseudo-personality that takes over, types in bold, and asks me questions?
Read this numbered list of awesomeness to hear what else is new.
1. Stand Up Comedy – I want to create and perform a 55 minute comedy act called “ImMature: A Night of Poop Humor, Sex Stories, and Stereotypes by Paul Drecksler”. I will perform this at local amateur comedy clubs in Los Angeles while trying to win a game that I invented called “Finish the entire 55 minutes.”
Every once in a while I realize that I’m hilarious, hate working, and decide to be a comedian. That didn’t happen this time. I DON’T want to be a professional comedian for a living. But I do want to be one for a night. You see, there are some things in life I’d love to do even just once.. like your sister.
2. When did YouTube advertisements become kinda cool?
I wanted to share this video advertisement that I like.
The link at the end of the video will lead you to a new window and play another YouTube video. Just roll with it, and let me know what word you typed in when it gives you the choice. You can probably guess the first word I typed. Leave a one-word comment below this post if you’d like to guess.
3. Christmas Photo. I took a classic X-mas photo with Nicole on Christmas morning. I swung by very early in the morning (just after Santa left) to give her a lift to the LAX airport. She was headed home to surprise her mama on Christmas.
I’m glad to have three of my best friends, Scott, Justin, and Nicole, living in Los Angeles. It’s like having a West Coast family.
4. Timothy Ferriss came out with another book called The 4 Hour Body.
Earlier this year, Dr. Acton introduced me to Timothy Ferriss’ first book The 4 Hour Workweek–which was an Adventure Paul Book of the Month back in July.
You might not remember this because the Adventure Paul Book of the Month isn’t a real thing–but it should be. Good idea, AP. Why don’t you change your name to Adventure Oprah if you’re going to copy everything she does?
Timothy Ferriss makes it on my numbered list of awesomeness because he really is the man. Sold yet?
The 4-Hour Workweek teaches efficiency–how to free up more hours in your day–how to work less hard but more productively. I should re-read this book before the New Year in recognition of my 2011 resolution to become more organized.
Ferriss includes a lot of personal anecdotes to educate his readers through examples making the book semi-autobiographical. He continues to use this style of writing in The 4 Hour Body.
Here is a video that Neil Strauss e-mailed me of Timothy Ferriss discussing dating. It should give you some insight into the author’s personality.
5. My niece Brookelyn went to Disney World. – My brother sent me a photo. She gets smarter every day… I recently had a 45 minute conversation with her where she said, “I’m going to interview you. Do you like grapes?”
I do like grapes.
This is all I’d like to share with you today. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful New Year.
