HAPPY TA-TAS TUESDAY: On Making Dough From What Ya Know

Ok. So, like, I'm re-compiling my IRL library and I stumbled over one or two of my fun, throw-back books of yore...one was 100 Ways to Make $ In Your Spare Time ....(as if!!!)

but, anyways, seeing as how I did begin to go through some of the more interesting choices during a broadcast several episodes ago, I figured, hey, why not make that into a post? 

So, I looked through it once again and came up with the top 6 things that looked cool and do-able...and the top 6 to go running, crying, and wholly absent from.

It is often fun for me to go back to my school-daze mindset of, whaddya wanna be when you grow up, and that is never that hard to do, as I don't think we humans ever really grow up...

We grow WEIRD, surely....and complicated.....and....ehh...somewhat wiser, maybe? 

But sometimes terribly, terribly short-sighted. Aren't you so happy that I have chosen to speak for all of (wo)mankind? Truly?!?! 

Anyways..

Well, I dunno...at least for me...these are things I'd do (or do MORE of) if and when I had a spare lifetime(!!!!) as well as some things that I do not ever, ever see myself as ever intentionally deciding to do...and cannot remember ever being so inclined!!!

Ahh...meanwhile...enjoy...and I will be uploading pictures/vids to break up this text (and that of future text!) in short order.....


SIX JOB-LIKE THINGS THAT COULD BE FUN

-> ART BROKER
Know a good thing/relic/artifact when I see it? Do I EVAR! Um, ya, why not?

-> DANCING LESSONS
This is Narcissism in Action...and I LOVE it! =)

-> FREELANCE RESEARCHER/SECRETARY
Well, as many of you are well aware, I art quite the infovore!!! Yeah, emphasis on the FREE part of it....I still don't quite 'get' the idea of getting paid TO learn. But, ya =)

-> MANUSCRIPT EDITING
Totally! I can be verbose on my own behalf at times, but I know when and where to snip it...on behalf of others. Totally.

-> TRANSLATING/INTERPRETING
I already do this with disturbing regularity ( ;) ) , but I guess, in this instance, it would be like....quadruplifying the sheer amount of data and quantum and the like....hmm....

SIX JOB-LIKE THINGS THAT ARE F***K-NO-GO!!!

-> ANTIQUE REBUILD/REFINISH
Because I have a tendency to not 'get it' when it comes to exacting precision when dealing with delicacies....I'm the Ram in the China shop (no bueno!)

-> GRINDING AND SHARPENING <BUT NOT IN *THAT* WAY>
Well, I'm no Jodi....
(KIDDING!!! Or, wait...lol...I actually think she got a pretty raw deal per her send-off gift to the Undertaker (or, perhaps, inelastic stony walls ad nauseam). I can see 2nd degree or manslaughter. I see no pre-med in that woman, is all. Those bro-roomies are so very, very... privileged.  I'mma say it....Just sayin'. *shrugs*)

-> PRINTING AND SERVICES
I get ENOUGH of this insanity with day-to-day processings of me own. I'll pass on any extra duties in this area for the foreseeable future!

-> RECORDING SPECIAL EVENTS
'Cuz I'd want to be IN the movie(s).....duh....And that's not fair!!! lol

-> PROSPECT LIST COMPILATION
Too much like hunting for Bambi! Aww...

-> SEWING INSTRUCTION/PATTERN RE-MAKING
Me and needles do NOT get along. Never have, never will. Can you say, OUCH?!?! rofl

And, like I said before, exacting precision with literal, small tiny objects and measurements...and maths....are you kidding me?!?! 

If my seams distress themselves, it's off to the vintage store or shopping mall...or the nether regions of my closet. I can fill the gap! <giggles>


Laisse-tomber, quoi!
