Day 63 of The Great Santa Adventure 2013 – 53 Days to go.
Woke up and got going around 5:00. Followed up with some potential Internet marketing clients. Headed into LA about 8:30. Had breakfast at Aroma Bakery Cafe on Sunset. The breakfast burrito was terrific, but a bit pricy- I dropped $26 on breakfast. I went to the “Beats by Dre” audition at 11:10. I was the oldest, biggest, guy their by a long shot. We each select 2 lines for sheets on the wall. The lines had to do with a colors. I selected- “purple like kings” and "white like heaven”. They also wanted me to dance a bit. That was very funny. I have no rhythm at all. This was the first non-Santa audition I had ever done. I have no idea of what they thought, but if dancing was important to them I’m sure I will not get it. I then went by the Clarry’s to rescue Gordon from Jennifer’s Bridal Shower. As it turned out, I left him there, he had plans to go suit shopping. I went back to Irvine and did laundry, updated my journal and just relaxed for the rest of the afternoon and evening. And I watched a bunch of music and comedy YouTube videos- as entertainment, inspiration and research.

Day 62 of The Great Santa Adventure 2013 – 54 Days to go.
Woke up and got going around 6:00. I created a new, better, Hummingbird SEO video in the morning and made the blog post for it. I also shot an Onboarding video for the Hello Santa Santas and created an email giving them a heads up about the Performer Agreement and the scheduling Calendar. I self submitted for a “Beats by Dre” commercial audition. They were looking for a cool Big guy. I was notified that I got the audition and it was for Saturday at 11:10AM. Kevin and Marci came over. Kevin bought dinner at Pick Up Stix. My fortune was “You will be unusually successful in an entertainment career”.

Day 61 of The Great Santa Adventure 2013 – 55 Days to go.
HALLOWEEN 1 year anniversary of my eye surgery. Woke up and got going around 7:00. Power went out last night about 1:00 AM. Strange, it was only out in parts of the house and it was not a breaker issue. Around 8:00AM I went and handed out 10 of the “Santa visits your business” fliers at businesses right around the house. I then had a meeting with the Hello Santa team and a potential investor. The meeting went very well. After the meeting I dropped one of my sister’s patio chairs off at the Clarry’s. After that I had a meeting with Bob Hud. We only had 5 groups of kids come by for candy. Kind of disappointing.
