This working full time thing--well, it's hard. I think I've solved the problem though: I need a sugar daddy. Too bad I didn't think of THAT when I was young, cute, and didn't have all these stray chin hairs.
The other option? I figured that if everyone who reads my blog would be kind enough to send me between $5 and $15 a month (amount to be based on a sliding scale that takes into account the reader's income and his/her enjoyment of my blog)--well, that would work too.
Or there's one more option: Several of you (about a dozen would be good) could sign up for the hostess plan. All you'd need to do is agree to feed and house me for one month a year and then pay my travel expenses to the next destination. I'm reasonably tidy, I don't drink alcohol (very often), and other than the hum of my sewing machine, I'm pretty quiet.
I mean really--aren't these ideas completely reasonable? I'll post a sign-up list soon. Watch for it.
