Miss April Vokey: The Consummate Entertainer

She may say she’s made the grade because she rebuffed the “Barbie Doll in Waders” label, or that she simply loves it more than anyone she knows…

But I believe that’s all a pile of made-for-television spin. Having spent some time fishing with the gal, I think Miss April rises above the froth because she’s the consummate entertainer. A true professional, and yet never a dull moment, from the time you step into the truck until the point you pour the first drink (she prefers Jack Daniels by the way), pure unadulterated fun. Throw deadly skills into the mix (which she has), and you get one of the best fishing experiences you can fathom.

Guides far and wide could learn a thing or two from this lady by watching the 60 Minutes Sports expose airing tonight on Showtime. I don’t even own a television, but I already know the story.

Or maybe I’m just pissed she’s going to be booked for forever and a day now, and I won’t ever again get to hear her say “Hey Gracie, want another quesadilla?”

The internet is boring?

I say the nightly news is boring – others tend to agree. I say TV in general is boring, and if stuffing programs on your cellphone is the best the hot shot executives can come up with, that isn’t going to change much either. Even the blogosphere is getting boring (or at least the political end of it has) – just more of the same in a different venue.

But it takes a really rich guy (Mark Cuban) to say the whole internet is boring, and I am inclined to disagree with a billionaire for the first time.

I’d say that is akin to declaring that everything inventable has been invented. Whether technologically or via just plain attitude, someone will always rise to shake things up. Or is that exactly what Mark is trying to incite?

My guess is that someone with an “I don’t give a shit” attitude and a helluva set of coding skills is always right around the corner.
