a few not-really-noteworthy things:
1-i did a focus group study for 20/20 research last week and made $100. you should sign up for their mailing list, and you just may qualify to participate. and make the easiest money of your life! i think i signed a disclaimer saying i wouldn't write about my specific study. but it involved face care.
2-i've figured out what i'm going to do for my first gocco project, but i haven't actually made it yet (or taken the gocco out of the box). hey, that's one step further than before! but i can't tell you about it because it's a surprise for my family.
