She works hard for the money...

  Yeah, that's right, I'm a working girl now.....

....not in the "Pretty Woman" sense either...so don't go there (i'm talkin to you 'Lee-Roy')!!!

No, some friends of mine have hired me to help them with their marketing business, part of this new job entails me doing research on technical stuff, and [gasp] writing articles for their blog!!

The best part - I'm getting paid!!  Whoo-Hoo!!!  Now, I can use my pay check to cover monthly expenses, and we can leave Marius' check sitting in the bank where they will 'bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever....Eidelweiss..."

...sorry, had a Sound of Music moment there.  Yeah, we are just covering all kinds of music ain't we. I know you started singing "She works hard for the money, so hard for it honey.." as soon as you read the title.  Well here's some more for you....

..right now, I'm listening to Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" as I'm writing this.  Not sure how my mind can "sing" a song from a musical, while listening to savvy 80's music.

Okay, that song wasn't "savvy" per se, but his video sure as heck was!  I remember seeing those Alabaster white chicks with their slicked back hair, black skin tight mini dresses and bright, glossy red lips, and thinking - I hope I look like that when I grow up!

...Obviously God didn't hear that little prayer, or he did, and thought a practical joke was in order!!!

I'm the total opposite of those 80's babes - who by now are, I'm sure are fat, saggy and horrid looking from all the partying that took place in hell-ay back then! (yes, my attempt at making myself feel better)

Upside:  I'm still fairly skinny (after 3 kids) and non saggy thanks to the fact that "my girls" never graduated 8th grade!

Anyway, back to paying gig - yeah, I'm excited, but it's also leaving me little time for my own little rants & raves!! ;)

What's really annoying though, is that my kids NEVER need anything, or fight with each other, UNTIL I'm eyeball deep into writing an article.  You know, trying to focus my thoughts, and put a coherent sentence together?!?

Ahhhh....but then school starts in like oh, 2 weeks!  YES!  I will have all morning to work tirelessly!  "Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh oh!"  -  Led Zeppelin "Black Dog" (guess what's playing now?)

Oh yeah, technology fix.  So my monster laptop, that had to have motherboard replaced....when I got it back - the blue-tooth adapter wasn't working - it is now!!!

Thanks to some guys over at the Windows 7 Forum!  They did their legwork and posted a couple of links to a patch and a drive file, that I for some reason could not for the life of me, find on the Dell website.

So now, the Blue-tooth is finally working - "Sooooo Happy." - Audrey Hepburn as 'Princess Ana' in Roman Holiday

Also, am getting better internet, a.k.a. DSL connection through cable company.  Will still have to pay for crack smoking connection currently provided by mobile phone company till April.

But it don't matter, cause my friends (new bosses) are going to pay for new connection, which will only cost like 10 Euro ($15) a month!!!

That's it for now, going to go jam out to "Stone Fox Chase" by House of Glass

Congratulations! It's always nice to have a little more purpose and a little more money. There's a lot to be said for having some form of daily employment that actually pays. (I've had some that didn't!)mievessi

@Gorges, yes a little money in my pocket going jing-a-ling-a-ling...always a good thing. Trying to write while two sisters attempt to "kill" each other while trying to write the thing that will give me that change - eh...not so good! :)
