Upside, downside

Sounds like Supercon was a success, and a good time was had by all. Wish I could have been there to soak in the hot tub and just have a break, but alas the money is too tight to be spending freely on such things.

I broke down today and spent almost 90 bucks to get my prescription refilled. Or one of 'em anyway-- I'm still holding off on the cholesterol meds until things loosen up a bit. And that isn't going to happen until I get a job again.

Bad news, a letter from the IRS. Not very understanding folks, the IRS. They want money, and they won't be denied. Nothing that you can do short of dying will alleviate the debt, and even then they still want money.

The downside is that with our current status, we don't make enough money to pay the IRS and the house payment, much less everything else. Trying to borrow money has turned into a disaster: the only thing that we have as a possibility is refinancing the house, and seeing as I am unemployed and we have a spotty credit record, the interest rates that we've been seeing are atrocious, even before we get to the borrowing part (consider 14% interest on a loan of $170k).

There are no options left: I need a job that pays well, and I need it now. And that very thing is completely outside of my control.

Frustration does not begin to describe what I am feeling.

Hey, it's good to see... uh... hear... become aware of your... online journalness.

I can't imagine I've ever mentioned how much I adore this photo. I've been meaning to inquire about the logistics and/or protocols of using it as a headshot. If that's a notion you would entertain, let me know how to best make it happen and what compensation is appropriate...

It took me some time to figure out it was you. I'm still working on discovering crackle's secret identity.

As for the headshot: I think Josh may have the negs. If he doesn't, then I still have 'em around here somewhere. I don't have any of the scans-- they died in a HD crash.

As far as permissions and all that-- go ahead. I know that your excessive cash portfolio is tied up in all of those speculative investments. :)

If you do end up using it in a show or something and it's appropriate, I wouldn't mind a credit.

And hey, I might have a project or two that you might find interestin'.
