The 2010 20K: Day 10 – Things I Won’t Do For Money…

…ESPECIALLY for $55.

So after posting yesterday's blog, one of my friends sent me an MSN message with the following enclosed:

"Clean my toilets".

Thanks, Kev. While this is definitely on the list of things I MIGHT do, there's a caveat. I'd expect the hirer to pay the costs of travel. It just doesn't make much sense otherwise. If I have to pay $55 (or more!) to make the $55 back, there wasn't much sense in travelling all that way, was there? So yes, $55+applicable costs will be the rate 🙂

So just so your imaginations don't run COMPLETELY wild, let's list off some things I WON'T do for $55:

  • Sleep with you (and no, Sarah won't give it the okay, so don't try that angle, either)
  • A job that obviously costs wayyyy more than $55 to do (like, I dunno – develop a database system for a company of 20,000 people)
  • Anything causing direct harm to myself or others

Just to name a few.

Didn't get around to finishing up the Indie Writers' Deathmatch entry, but hoping to use it for something else in the near future – submissions for indie mags are always being requested.

Another week is upon us, and I still have a few things to do before bed – a resume to send out, things to scan and various items to consolidate. Gonna be one of those nights, I guess 🙂 Hopefully this week will be rife with opportunities to increase this total!

The 2010 20K Running Total = $62.20

Thanks for reading and wish me luck this week,
