Can't Afford, I'm Pikey Priky Wicky

It's been a strange month, this month of July. It's as if allot of promissing things have come about but they all seem to be hanging in the air, while in the mean time I have to hold my private bits and figure out how to make ends meet.

It must be a testament to my acting skills, but thus far I've managed to smile at the adversity that's come my way. I remember the times I used to appear at functions and cooly listen to people discuss their million dollar deals and then, when the party was over, I'd find a way of sneaking away from the crowd and jumping into a bus, which was usually at a stage when I was worried about taking the bus. I know I'm probably flattering my ego here when I say with some pride that it takes skill to sound like a credible person in a conversation about lots of money when you haven't got any, then again, its been a matter of necessity. People don't give jobs to the poor and needy, which is probably the wrong thing to do because these are probably the most hungry. Then again, if the girls in Geylang and stand there and look desireable and sexy when they're not particularly feeling sexy, then why shouldn't I be able to hold my own in conversations with people who make more in an hour than I do in a month.

Anyway, in spite of being in the usual state of skintdome, I'm managing to stay busy. I've been matching people here and there and somehow, I think I'll be rewarded. I've just finished a book where the main bit of advice is to do favours and add value to people because somehow, there's a universal accountant helping keep score. I think Vinod used to say that "Good Guys Always Win," a lesson which "Green Day" seemed to disagree with in their song "Nice Guys Finish Last."

Well, I think there's a happy medium somewhere in there. I think I've been lucky. I mean, I have a gang of clowns who always need bailing out and they always seem to have a talent to get into trouble when I can least afford to be helpful. But then again, as much as I bitch about being an unrewarded banker to the clowns in my life, I am greatful to the fact that there are people who I've ended up having to take from and they've refused to let me repay them. So, I guess there is something to this cosmic balance of good and bad deeds.

Anyway, it looks like I am about to make a bit more money from the internet. Made about US$16 from mylot.com this month and should be getting to another US$10. It's been quite fun posting discussions on the internet, ranting and raving and reading other people's rants. Men are as always obsessed by their trouser snakes (I've declared that I am so miniscule, I get laid many times because the girls don't believe me when I declare I'm tinny). American Fundimentalist Christians are convinced that Barak Obama is a secret plot by the Islamic world to turn the US of A into a shit pot (if Bush II has not already made it so). Women are obsessed with when they should lose their virginity. It's amazing what people will talk about when nobody thinks they're being watched. I've been posting on all these crazy discussions and its adding up in my paypal accont.

Well, do feel free to join mylot. It can be a laugh. The link to join is under my recamendations and links part of this multiply blog.

Of course, allot of people laugh at me for working for pennies. Seriously, this is not work for me, just a form of ranting and the pennies I earn, end up becoming a form of alternative savings. You know what they say about how you should always keep your spare change in a jar and it grows into something quite substantial at. I guess working on mylot has that same effect. Even if I only get 20 plus cents a night, it's 20 plus extra cents I would not have had otherwise.

Am thinking of holding a Raffle of sorts on this blog. Let me know what type of prizes you think I should offer and hopefully this will turn out to be a good value added proposition to you guys who have been reading the silly things that I get up to on a regular basis. Hopefully, there will be some money in there for someone too. Anyway, you can tell I'm broke, I'm actually doing a bit of thinking about how to solve the usual predicament here.
