Having trouble finding a cheap, big apartment in a safe neighborhood. The one I blogged about last week gave me the creeps driving around it. Most of the ones I found this week have high crime rates. I know it’s a city, but none of the complexes have emailed me back either. Not a good sign.  More looking to be done. Higher standards, lower prices, doesn’t always work out. 😉 Haven’t given up, though. Some say buy a house, it’s cheaper, but we don’t have the employment record or the down payment for that right now, let alone the other fees involved. Some day. 🙂

More interviews for Rich. Keeping fingers and toes all crossed. Still plotting my web take over.

Finished The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for the second time this week. Nearly done with Orc King. Cat sitting for friends, even the angriest cat gets lonely and snuggles. Made friends with a Taiwanese Mountain Dog and a ginger cat on Monday. Both adorable.

Some doc bills paid off with the refund check. Down to four major ones now, one of which is now below 1K. I’ve got a study appointment next week that I’m getting paid to go to. Thanks to Delve.com. Then I’ll be scheduling a paid interview on a new product after that. Yay, for consumer research studies. I may even manage to buy some new summer clothes at the thrift store with the second check.  Yay thrift. 🙂

Okay, enough rambling for now. See you next week. 🙂

I missed last week because of the Con Crud.  The con itself was an amazingly good time. Friends and fun and food. We all hung out and relaxed and partied. But the following week, we ALL got sick. And I do mean all. I don’t know who brought the flu to the con, but pretty much everyone I know that attended, with a couple rare exceptions, ended up sick during the following week.

I had a fever ranging up to 102.8, headache, nasty cough, runny nose and all. I have gotten rid of most of that, except the cough. It is persisting, so I went to the doctor today to get antibiotics to kick it the rest of the way out. Normally I wouldn’t but normally, I’d also let it hang around for a month. Thought I’d like to get rid of it faster this time.

Read a couple books while I was sick. Now on the third book of the Ultimate Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy. It might have amused me a little too much to begin reading it on a nook, but I am a geek. Watched the BBC miniseries of it last week, as well. Very amusing.

Work is odd. Must get back in gear on Elance again. Healthy first, then back to the grindstone. To live the life I want, effort must be made.
