I had every intention of writing this post yesterday, but somewhere between the total starvation and raging headache, I forgot. Ok, it’s not really that bad. Rob and I are doing a 3 day juice cleanse, so I did get a bit of a headache and felt a little hungry yesterday late afternoon, but the truth is that I feel pretty good overall. Rob, on the other hand, said eating a shoe sounded good to him. I’ll write about it more when it’s all said and done.
In other news, I’ve come up with a new money making venture. The freelance thing has been slow for awhile now, so I’m looking into other ways to bring in some money. This idea happens to be one I stole from the awesomely funny television show New Girl. It’s just such a perfect fit!
In their apartment (on the show), they have what’s called an “annoying jar.” Every time one of the roomies does something considered annoying by any of the other roomies, the annoying one has to put money in the jar. You might be thinking, but she doesn’t even have roommates, so what good will this do? I do have one roommate though; my husband. And because I love him very much, I can tell you that he is the king of annoying. Wait, let’s capitalize that; King of Annoying. That’s better.
In just one evening at home I guarantee you I could make a shit ton of money. Like every time he makes one of his super annoying noises, that’s like $10 in the jar. More if he’s already been asked to stop making these obnoxious sounds. It sounds weird, I know, but Rob likes to make high-pitched noises and make other loud outbursts on a regular basis. For some reason it’s especially bad when we’re playing Word With Friends against each other, which we do almost daily.
Rob also likes to call me all kinds of nicknames that really aren’t that cute. I mean yes, they are pretty comical, but if I can classify them as annoying, well, money! Some of the most common names he calls me:
Slip N’ Slide
There are many more, but you get the idea. Romantic, eh? They are if they equal money in the jar! Of course, I’m looking at other “job” options, but I think this could be very profitable. Profitable, for me. I guess Rob could end up poor. Damn, I didn’t really think that through.
trying to think of which of those nicknames are my fave…and it’s just a hard decision. just too hard.
