Relaxing on a Friday afternoon . . .

All right, before I start digging through links, I thought I'd do the "new" Friday Five.

1. What’s the most embarrassing thing/job you’ve had to do to earn money?
I don't think I've done anything embarrassing to earn a buck . . . Maybe a coney eating contest, but that was raising money for charity . . .

2. What’s the easiest and quickest way you have earned a buck?
Probably gambling . . . I've made a couple hundred bucks playing blackjack for a few hours . . .

3. If you could set your own salary, according to your skills and worth, how much would you earn?
Mmm . . . I think I'd set it at whatever level would make me content. With my current job, I've found a good balance between work and play, and it's enough to get by. For the sake of this question, we'll assume it's implying a 40-hour a week position, that demands my skills/abilities, then I'd say I'm worth at least $60k/year (in Helena). I don't think that kind of position exists in Helena . . .

4. Are you a good saver?
Not particularly - I tend to live within my means, but I don't save worth a damn . . .

5. What’s the most expensive and useless thing you have ever bought?
I don't think I've bought anything totally superfluous or excessive like that. I do tend to be willing to pay a premium for goods, but I tend to believe that you get what you pay for. Also, most of the expensive things I've owned have been presents from my parents. Perhaps the most expensive/useless thing in hindsight was probably my PalmPilot . . .
