I have to think about money today. I have to think about a way to get some. I have turned in all the insurance claims I possibly can until my therapist gets me the invoices for the past nine months and of course blue cross is not overly eager to get their payments to you within any particular time so who knows when those will be processed and of course they also only allow about 80% of the actual fee I pay which is ridiculous as no therapist anywhere works for less than mine does but there are no rules about this so insurance can do whatever the fuck it wants. I hate the way healthcare is paid for in this country.

I will try once more to sell my chair. I've listed it twice on ebay and once on craigslist to no avail. the highest offer I've gotten has been $50 and I might just take that if it's all I can get but the fucker cost me six times that.

I've been commissioned to draw an illustration for a website so am doing that with my newfound photoshop pen tool skill. I don't know how much they are going to give me. it will be worth far more than I'd ever think of charging though. I need to learn illustrator if I'm going to do stuff like this--geekily speaking, vector graphics would be a lot more useful than bitmapped graphics for this kind of thing.

I have to think of some way to get some sort of steady cash flow going. I mean I'll be teaching soon and I guess once I get to that things will be ok. but in the meantime I really wonder if I could sell art on the internet. it'd be something I could do that is just about painless and there aren't many things like that.

I wonder how difficult/expensive it would be to have prints made of a pencil drawing. I wonder who does that sort of thing. it would be nice to be able to sell the same drawing more than once! :)

I mean yeah I have a dissertation to write but it doesn't pay very well.
