That baby is the cutest thing since ever. Welcome to the team!
This probably doesn't count as a hustle (because it doesn't generate any income) but when I was very poor and still a smoker, I used to just buy zig zag papers and then forage for butts in ashtrays and then empty out the tabacoo and reroll them into new cigarettes. Gross, but cheap! Then I read Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London and read about tramps from that era pulling the same trick, so second lesson: there are no new hustles.
Oh man! So I have to confess that I love watching Dota2 games (I play also, but not even in the same ballpark as the pros). It's kind of like the difference between playing any sport and watching a professional play said sport. It's sometimes fun to watch people do something really, really well. I do wish they were salaried, rather than playing for pots, but maybe that will happen in the future. I still feel less guilt about it than when watching football, on account of the concussions and (as I learned from the billfold) terrible labor practices for the cheerleading staff. BTW, has anyone else seen Free to Play? (http://store.steampowered.com/app/245550/) I came away like Na'Vi a lot more than I had before.
@atruck Spite lattes truly are the best.
I spilled the beans earlier in the Monday check-in thread, but *drumroll please* tiniest loan annihilated! So that first zero balance is there and I can move my snowball along to the next target. Huzzah!
@LookUponMyWorks Aww thanks! It's a long slog with very few victories, so I've been logging in to check on that zero balance every 10 minutes or so. Still there.
So this is more a check-in about throwing some money at my problems (did I miss this month's?) but the big news around the Bean household is that I have finally knocked out the tiniest of my student loans. Other than that, I spent $10 on garden stuff and another $10 on tacos at a charity fundraiser.
@ceereelyo That's brilliant! I was also so into boxes at that age (still am a collector of cute mint tins). Love it.
@Heather Funk@facebook Congrats! Both on the impending wedding and to your BF for finishing their diss!
