Reach For The Stars

Ack, I used to do this forever ago! Of course I didn’t do it this way – agent, cattle calls, etc. etc. – but if you’re in the market to make some good money, then you definately want to try your hand at extra work. You’re looking at at least $100 per day, upwards of $300 if you go with Talent6.

I’ve been out of the business so long, let me tell you. The last film I extra’d for was The Sandlot in 1992, which was a piece of crap with no budget that was filmed mostly in Utah (thank the Gods for that, because I happened to live in Utah at the time and it bought me my back to school clothes!). What I wouldn’t give to get into extra work again. Generally, you’re just filling a scene with realistic background movement – people walking, having conversations, jogging, you name it. Not a bad way to make $250 a day, huh?

If you’re up for it, call Talent6 (800-493-9047) and see how far you can go. You n ever know, this toll free call to a portfolio manager might be the start of a brand new career? Won’t know until you call, and since background work is 100% on the up and up you don’t have to worry about having to pay anything up front – I know it sounds too good to be true, but take it from someone who’s been there, it’s true. And a lot of times, though they have long hours, you can have some real fun doing it!

Holiday Cards

If you’re like me, even though Halloween is the next great big holiday that’s coming up, you’re also probably already looking into menus, gifts, decorations and cards for the major holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. and honestly I don’t see how the holiday season gets here faster every single year. It’s sneaking up on me!

But anyway, to my point, one of the nifty things you could send out this year is your very own, personal, customized holiday cards from VistaPrint.com.

VistaPrint is one of my all time favorite websites. I’ve been going there for years, and they always have a huge selection and amazing variety of products for you to customize for your family, business, school or church. They go above and beyond to make their web store easy to use, this I know from personal experience, and they have FREE products now and then like rubber stamps, car magnets, calendars and business cards. It’s almost silly not to go and check them out, you could have your family sitting pretty on a customized Christmas card in no time – and without breaking the bank.

I think I’m going to get my New Years cards there, I’d love to do a few sketches, scan them and see if I can’t get some adorable cards out of them. :)

Passware, Inc.

I’ve never used Passware software, but I sure have heard of them. They’re Windows password decryption can save you a lot of time and effort if you’re ‘locked out’ and need to reset your passwords without having to reboot your entire system. Got to love that, and also gotta love that they’ve been in business since 1998 – 10 years! Very worth a look!

That’s Rich.

Let’s pretend, for five seconds, that I ever remember to renew my own domain names. Let’s also pretend that I didn’t let one of them expire by accident and will now never see it again as we zip right to the fact that I, meaning the great anyone ever, and broke as a matchstick and couldn’t afford to renew the domain anyway.

At least I’ll have birthday present money for my mom’s birthday on the 4th, and she’ll look at the gift and sort of tuck it behind the others saying she’ll open it later so I could easily put a cat poo in it and she wouldn’t even notice, lol. Ah, the love in my family is great and strong!

I’m hoping that selling off all of my wordpress themes will make me enough cash to renew Beautiful Sin, because I’m kind of at the end of my rope here with this being broke thing. I’m over it, I want to go back to my previous dream life where I’m dumb and rich and can get liposuction, lol.

Tired of Bossman

I am so sick and tired of Bossman being at my house all the damn time. I’m tired of working all night then having to stay awake all day because he just won’t leave, and on top of all that he’s Bossman, what can I really do about it? It’s driving me insane, he thinks we have this great friendship even though I’ve made myself clear – I don’t like him, I can’t stand his politics and I think he can shove his God where the sun don’t shine, I don’t want it in my government but he laughs that off as if I must be kidding or something. I’m gonna kill him, lol.

Lifelock and You

I’ve posted before about my adoration of the concept of lifelock, and what it can do for you to help you on your way to securing your identity, and I’ve been poking around on their site and messing with the press releases and I found something interesting.

Lifelock is apparently the recipient of the Best Service spot in the 12th annual Webby Awards, which is cool since, from what I’ve heard they totally deserve that award. It would rule to be able to work there, actually, I’m pretty sure right now Lifelock is hiring for those who may be interested. I’d apply but the only thing I can do is design websites, I wouldn’t be much good to them! Lol.

Vistaprint Coupons!

As my regulars know already, I’ve been a long time fan of VistaPrint, the company that offers you all those neat office freebies like rubber stamps, checks, car magnets and what they’re likely best known for, free business cards, and they’ve always had great deals and freebies but not everyone can afford their prices on regular items – even if those prices are rock bottom for their type of business.

But, if you’re on the broke side but you still need announcements or a business card case, you can check out vistaprint coupons over at vistaprint-coupons.com. They have a lot of coupons you can use for free that will save you up to 50% on your order at VistaPrint.com, I haven’t tried them yet but I’m going to put them to good use when it comes time to order new cards!

Formaspace Furniture

Okay, so I love Formaspace. I’m surfing around their site and I know already that I want a brand new chair to sit in front of my computer, even though I know that a workbench might be too much chair for me – I still want it, though, lol. They specialize in technical furniture and services, plus custom stuff that’s practical and comfy to boot.

Police Gear and Stellar Boots

Ooh, police gear website – with neat things for me to buy! Okay, okay, so I’m not so much into the BDU pants ( even if $15 IS a fabulous price ), but the shoes – the boots, to be more precise – are to die for!

I’ve always been a out of the closet combat boot fan, and I’m just an all around boot fanatic these days, and L.A. Police Gear’s got a great selection of Converse, and you know how I love Converse!

Wholesale Paradise

If you’re looking to start your own business – and if you’re a Mommy Blogger, Postie or a Sparkler, I’m sure you’ve thought about it! – one way of dong this is wholesale products. I’ve more than once dabbled in this field, mostly I’m a fan of drop shipping for use on eBay, but DollarDays.com doesn’t do drop shipping because their super low wholesale prices are based on bulk orders ( or that’s how I understand it, at least ).

I’m already in love with DollarDays, their site has a big selection and a lot of name brands like Curve cologne and other high quality merchandise like wholesale electronics, shoes, party supplies, and my favorite, wholesale chocolate! I think the design of the site could be a tad better, but it is very clean and easy to use and it does look professional and trustworthy, so all of that boils down to me talking myself out of buying bulk chocolate and eating it all in one sitting, lol.
