Josh Ellis (I sometimes refer to him as the minion but that's only because he's helpful) stopped by my place of work and told me his roommate asked him to move out. This poor kid has had the worse luck since before I met him. He is so incredibly talented it seems a crime almost, but I have faith in him and it sounds like this time Las Vegas is not the worst place for him to be right now. He's promised to keep in touch and I hope he does because his first novel is going to make it real big and I think he is going places, even if his current life sucks.
Oooh, scariness again. I am cutting too close to my financial bone. I do have the Ebay auctions up and running. The more expensive auction has eight bids already. I took myself to see Greta Garbo's first American silent film, The Torrent, where she plays a Spanish Opera Diva. Fabulous!

This is what I want my Blog to be about: the culture I take in, not my finances or my personal struggles to find myself. I figure the other stuff will seep through without my wallowing in it. I was chatting with Steven Heaston earlier and writing to him some good stuff about the film. Next time I will have to have the presence of mind to capture the conversation and post here. Dennis also chatted me up for a short time. I promised him I'd tell him more about the film, so...note to myself, write more about the silent film you saw, okay, okay. Now get to bed. Night, night.

How am I doing? I probably shouldn't ask because the truth is scarier than fiction. Let's just say I've been too long without money. But I am trying to be sensible with my spending, so it shouldn't be a problem for me to survive. I just need to take care of a few nessecities, now that I've had my fun spending on things I need. If that makes sense to you. Anyway, I am still waiting on one of my clients to pay me an initial fee, then I can move onto more important things like planning my vacation. I feel like I am balancing between two extremes.

Again, I am under a crunch for time. So much of my focus right now is money, money, money! I am sick of it because I don't have any. That changes today. I just have to be very careful because my financial situation remains delicate. The good thing is that this time I haven't really put myself in a lot of jeopardy and the amount of money I owe right now is minuscule. I will be able to pay it off in no time at all. The question is who gets paid first. My obligations are to my friends and family. Sorry, creditors, there are people more important to me than you�!

I am trying to make a commitment to write here every day. I don�t know how well I will be able to keep this commitment, but when it becomes regular, I hope to integrate this page into my web site and then I will have regular content on my web site. Yeah!

Well, as long as I stick to my shopping list and set as much money aside for rent as I can manage, I should be doing fine until next month. I still have a personal goal to purchase a ticket to Burning Man, but I have to at least get started on paying off my bills before I do that. I don�t have much time. Well, I�m off to work now.

So little time. I am finding my Mondays filled with mostly just self maintenance. My social life in addition to my financial situation is quickly going to pot. I've mostly been corresponding to Tweek since he is only asking for my opinion and not for my time. I would have it otherwise, but then again I don't think that is so wise either.

I can't believe this is the middle of the month already! At least work has been going pretty smoothly. I am not likely to get bored with it quickly. And I can color my hair whatever color I want to. I've been waiting for my hair to recover some of its strength from the last bunch of bleachings.
