Keepin' it Real Since 1978

January 8th, 2008 at 08:29 am

Reflections of my $20 Challenge are coming... next week?

I'm house sitting this week and away from my desk top computer and Quicken records. On the bright side, I'm making $60 / day for sleeping a house 5x the size of my own and walking a dog. Between the babysitting and house sitting, sometimes I question my decision to get a PhD and wonder if I'm just better suited to be woman-servant to the well-off.

Yesterday was also my 30th birthday! Yes, I've been keepin' it real since 1978. Mr. Bean is in town and helping me enjoy the palace lifestyle (this was OK'ed by the homeowners first, of course). We're going out to celebrate the birthday tonight at one of the town's finer dining establishments, expense abatement compliments of Restaurant.com.

    Oh man, this made me laugh. Clearly if the post-doc position doesn't work out you've got something to fall back on. Happy birthday! Keep on keepin on!

    P.S. I know you don't get hundreds of comments, but keep blogging, I find you very inspirational! I've actually got a list of stuff/furniture/books I'm going to be selling this year all because of reading about your encouraging efforts Smile
