What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

Total Black: -$199.61
Total Red: $269,947.74

This is the end.  My only friends.  The end.  Of my elaborate plans.  The end.  Can’t you picture what could’ve been?  So limitless and free.  Desperately in need . . . of some . . . stranger’s hand.  In my desperate land.  It hurts to set you free.  But you’ll never follow me.  This is, after all, the end.    Keep reading . . .

First words that leapt to mind.  “At last!”  I could hear ol’ Etta’s sultry sigh whispering in my ear as I opened the mailbox today.

Slipped My Mind

Total Black: $73.51
Total Red: $234,846.52

Last night was the first night I somewhat voluntarily chose not to blog.  I say somewhat because it was only at roughly 2:25am that I woke up, slightly inebriated still, and remembered that I hadn’t posted.  But I was too tired to bother getting out of bed, running the numbers, and putting up a place holder.  So that means I’ll have two gaps in my year: one voluntarily and one not.  Keep reading . . .

Yes.  It’s Tax Day.  At least in the United States.  I filed mine today.  Keep reading . . .

Fool Me Once

Yes, it’s that time of the year again.  April Fool’s Day.  Quite a coincidence that I heard from the Colleague today.  About a week ago I emailed him to check back about getting paid for the work I’d performed for him a few months back.  Last communication we had occurred on Valentine’s Day—and it didn’t go well, as noted in Stupid Cupid.  So today’s email took me by surprise.  Keep reading . . .

Black and White and Red All Over

Total Black: $1,070.69
Total Red: $

Total black is up because pay came through.  A portion has already been allocated to bills, however, so the numbers aren’t exactly accurate.  Total red is actually lower than what is shown.  It’s probably back down to $229K.  Of course, I say “back down” but really it’s back up. Keep reading . . .

I woke four times this morning: at 6am, 8:30am, 9am, and then finally at 10:40am.  I had intended to get up early to put some hours in at the contract attorney position before working at the theatre gig at 11am.  My body just wouldn’t let me get out of bed. Keep reading . . .
