In which i have no “cup of tea”

computer screen

I was hanging out this morning (Saturday that is) and talking to Kevin when he informed me that he had to go into work.  Now, lately this has been the norm but still, I wanted to ask him about it.


Me:                  what do you have to do there?


Kevin:             I have about 10 projects going on


Me:                  perhaps I could help


Kevin:             doubtful


Me:                  tell me about one of the projects


So Kevin launches into this explanation about conveyors and how he’s basically drawing up a flow chart of where pieces of wood go to which equipment system and how once he has it all drawn up he has to do all the engineering for it and then give it to the programmers to program.


Me:                  oh



Kevin:             so what do you think?


Me:                  I don’t really think that’s “my cup of tea”


Kevin:             your “cup of tea?”


Me:                  yeah, when I used to have to do flow charts I would do the program and then when I had figured it out and I was done then I’d do the flow chart


Kevin:             you were probably that person who wrote down the outline after you wrote the paper


Me:                  basically


Kevin:             so Lynn, what do you think your “cup of tea” is?


Me:                  hmmm… I’m not sure if I actually have a “cup of tea”


Kevin:             so you’re basically unemployable and useless which we knew


Me:                  well I’m really good at some things


Kevin:             … for example?


Me:                  I’m amazing at pep talks and I’m really good at dealing with medical situations


Kevin:             yeah … not sure that’s a job description


Me:                  I can do certain aspects of a lot of jobs


Kevin:             also not really helpful


Me:                  well, I suppose it’s good that you can do your own job without my help then


Kevin:             yes, I agree


So there you are! I have absolutely NO CUP OF TEA?  How about you guys? What’s your “cup of tea?”

    Hmmm, what’s my cup of tea? Can I replace the tea with wine?

    You are a “Jill-of-all trades, Master-of-none” just like me!

    So you get a job giving pep talks (yes people get employed that way) specifically about raising a kid with Asperger’s. You. Will. Be. Rich. And fast.

    So a pile of finished canvases

    how about a simple facebook page of Lynn’s Gallery (put Link on daily blog)

    You have a large room with great light — setup a camera station and photograph them all

    EVERY weekday load one photo of a painting (sign the paintings if you haven’t)
    label photo with title (ok you could name them “painting one” etc over thinking isn’t a requirement)
    put a price on it (if you don’t know how to figure this out I know of a formula for this)
    DO NOT frame them or if you do, set it as an extra charge — a lot of people want to frame in their own style AND w/o a frame shipping is less.

    Make sure you make the shipping the responsibility of the buyer (remember this is what ebay does) — setup with a local shipping/mailing shop

    Don’t think again about this –except to get all the canvases uploaded — then months later when you have a painting that hasn’t sold donate to a charity auction

    You are enough of a blog celebrity to expect a following

    You will sell some

    And remember keep it SIMPLE

    My cup of tea is telling jokes and getting people off topic. Seriously, if there’s a boring board meeting or brunch, I’m a perfect remedy.

    Other than that, I fall down a lot. So, I’d say that I’m a “Professional Tester of Gravity.”
