By the way.

If you have a bright idea on how I could make $300 in a relatively short amount of time, my ears are open and my hands are eager.

I figgered out that's what it would cost me to buy the new model of my old camera, some new-fangled version of the Casio Exilim Z-1000. I've already driven by the camera store twice since it gave up the partial ghost* last week, more than ready to place my plastic down on the counter. Times being what they are, though, I chickened out before pulling into the parking lot both times. Still, I'm not certain how long I can hold out. I'm a weak man sometimes.

So, yeah. Ideas? Hit me in the comments box. And no Elvis'ing ideas, either. I'm looking beyond Elvis. My budding picture-taking hobby sorta depends on this.

* It still technically takes photos ... as in I can download them later to see if I got it right ... but the LCD screen is completely white and black and sorta smashed, so I can't see what I'm taking photos of, how many I have taken or how long until my battery dies. Honestly, doesn't that defeat the purpose of picture snapping altogether?

SO it acts like an old school camera? What do you mean it defeats the purpose of picture snapping? You're going back to its roots! It's an adventure every time the shutter clicks. There's still an old fashioned viewfinder, I'm assuming??

Perfect quick cash in a month? They are hiring at those haunted houses right now. I sort of think that would be perfect for you, being that you SO enjoy scaring people--even 3-year old people. By the way, he has no residual damage from the other day, in case you were wondering.

Ramiro ... a viewfinder would be something. This one has none. I can't even frame my photos right. I just, you know, guess.

Holly ... perfect idea!

Mel ... hmmm. You might be onto something there. They make beans in those houses, but I only need to make 300 beans, so maybe.

I say a bake sale is in order. . . I bet you could easily make $300 having your nieces go door to door selling your yummy chocolate/zucchinni brownies. Or just sell them to people at work. You know we'd all buy 'em.

You should enter that k-bear 101 contest that they run (or at least they used to run) for $500 smackers. I think all you have to do is identify three songs. EASY.

Look at me giving at legitimate response.

I'm also back in Utah temporarily (again), so if you need any help making sweet mulla I have two hands and one head. That's a fact.

Vizzle. M.

Sell your plasma. You can make that much in a month.

You should send your great photos to istock foto.com and start getting money for those pics. Curtis can bring in $300 easily and doesn't have to really do any work for them. IF you want to know more, give him a call.

Yeah, no viewfinder is a hurdle. I'll start churning the gears and see if i get an idea, bruh.

I just thought I remembered one that I heard at a show before, but writing sad songs and getting paid by the tear won't get yo no camera.
