Ask ChaCha!

Well, I'm sure a good deal of you all know by now about ChaCha, the free text service that offers you great quality answers to any question under the sun every time.

I am now an independent contractor for ChaCha!

This is the kind of opportunity I have been waiting a very long time for -- making money from home (in the nude, if I so choose!) -- and finally, it has found me.

My friend Tara asked ChaCha if they were hiring and when they told her "no," well, she wasn't satisfied. That was about the worst answer ever, considering that ChaCha is still accepting applications for guides! How it works is that you are rewarded points for answering and expediting questions and at the end of each month, those points are then turned into cash. The exact amount that each point is worth varies since we work from a pool of money - the GuideShare payment pool. Currently, I have racked up about 4200 points to make $30ish.

The tricky part is this -- each query processed by a Generalist or Specialist is worth 8 points while queries processed by Expeditors are worth 2 points. It can take a while for them to start adding up, and at just a few cents per transaction, it doesn't seem like much at all. Possibly even more work than it's worth.

The redemption for this is found in how incredibly and ridiculously FUN it is. I am simply amazed at all the things I am learning, how often I'm laughing, and just seeing the wide variety of questions that come in.

If you would like more information about the application process to become a ChaCha Guide, go to ChaCha's home page and click the image on the right. You will find pretty much everything you need to know to get started.

So, I may be on a bit of an extended hiatus of sorts. I might discontinue this blog entirely. I'm just not sure what I'm going to do just yet, but I do know that I still care for each and every one of my followers and the kind, supportive feedback I've received in my short time here on BlogSpot.

If you have any burning questions for ChaCha while you're on the go, just text 242-242 or call 1-800-2-CHACHA for all your Q&A needs.

And remember... ChaCha loves you!

Happy Belated New Year

Well, it's a new year, a new decade... for the first time in a long time, I find myself feeling very hopeful for the future and where it's headed.

With Marc's new job, I find myself with a bit too much alone time. Learning to manage that time has been a bit of a problem for me -- I'll usually just sit in front of the computer and mess around on the internet all day long. Once in a while, I'll go and visit a friend or have company over. Either way, the laundry, dishes and decluttering aren't really getting done. So yeah... I really need to learn how to manage my time a little better once my back isn't messed up any longer.
Woman kills thug, escapes on subway


If Only

If only I knew how to get there
I think I've lost my way;
All the dreams that I've forgotten
And the things I meant to say.

If only there were somehow
To find my wings and fly;
But perhaps I'm meant to learn
How to ignore the urge to cry.

If only my voice could be heard
Strong and vibrant through the air;
But I'm such a fool to believe
That anyone might even care.

If only I hadn't given up
On who I might or could have been;
Maybe then life would seem worth living
And merely breathing wouldn't feel like such a sin.

Merry Christmas to one and all

Since I'm going to be out of town tonight and most of tomorrow, I'd like to just say "Merry Christmas" to everyone right now!

Of course, Marc and I being atheists, we don't really celebrate. But still!

Merry Christmas!


Marc's starting a new job tomorrow! Yay! He'll be making a little more than he was at O'Reilly's, at least for a little while. I'm hoping that it'll turn out permanent. He'll also be getting paid weekly. Very nice.

I've gotta get the house cleaned up for him now... well, not right this minute, but soon. Very soon.

F-bombs beyond the jump

Okay, so I finally went to the dentist yesterday - I haven't been in about a year - and got to have my teeth examined and "appraised." The damage this time totals $2,058.

Still swimming along

Just a short post to let you all know that I'm still here, just haven't had the energy to do much lately. Fibromyalgia, a bad tooth and stress are totally kicking my ass right now. I did draw a fishy today though. I don't like it much, but I'll share anyways.

Hope you all are well!

Gobble Gobble Gobble!

If I had to pick my favorite holiday, it's Thanksgiving. It's all about getting together with your favorite people, usually family, and chowing down on some bomb-diggity food. For our Thanksgiving we had salads to start then turkey loaf with gravy (the kind you get in the frozen food aisle in the little roasting pan and a cardboard lid), mashed potatoes, stuffing, broccoli casserole and Sweet Hawaiian rolls followed by pumpkin pie. It was nothing short of delicious. Marco cleaned off two plates! I barely finished mine. I was so full from my full plate. All my food was mounded and touching each other on a large dinner plate, if that tells you anything! Ha!

SO here's some photos
