Total Black: $3,789.90
Total Red: $243,657.05

Well, I started pounding the electronic pavement today.  I noted back in By Night in a New Land that I would be considering this option.  With the possibility of a monthly car payment, it must become more than a possibility.  And, as mentioned back in Craigslist Addict, I tended to rely mostly on that website to find leads.  That site isn’t really used much down here, so I’m left to the old-fashioned methods. 

Just a little rusty with those methods.  And a bit puzzled about how to go about it.  It’s been a long time since I had to find a part-time job. Seems odd now, after all these years, to just walk up to random business establishments

The casino here posted an ad on a website,, looking for bartenders so I found the casino’s website and submitted my resume.  I know I’ll have to get permission from the judge before I accept any positions.  But I figure I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.  Not sure how the court will handle such matters.  Officemate is handling a criminal prosecution of her former boss.  I’d think that would have conflicted her out, but nope.  Any true “conflict” however wouldn’t apply to the judge but rather to the clerk handling the case.  So we’d just reassign the case amongst ourselves.  I assume pending cases involving the casino, were I to get a job there, would be handled by one of my colleagues and not me.  But that’s a bridge to cross later.

For now, I need to identify a few more places to hit up.  Then, perhaps, pound the pavement for real.

Total black is up because I had to borrow another $3,000 from my mother.  Total red, then, is up as well.  Neither are up exactly by $3,000 per yesterday’s numbers in Relaxing Sunday because I’ve already allocated some for credit card payments.  This money is intended to cover re-renting the car; it’s due back later this week.  I certainly won’t make the mistake again of sending mound of cash to the credit cards like in Limits and Liens and Loans.
