My clients always ask "What do you do in the winter?"

My reply - "I eat a lot of Ramen noodles."



Snow is a crapshoot in Pittsburgh, so you could either make a little doing snow blowing/shoveling, or sit around picking your nose.
I'm getting a part time job this year.

Nothing. I put in a year's worth of hours during the season.

Oaknut: I get that question too and the "is this all that you do?" I like to say that I'm a trust fund baby and I'm just pretending to be forest gump. "Its a good job"

Snyder: I can't get unemployment here in nc since I work for myself. Sucks.

Oaknut: I tried to find a part time job last year and got nothing. Use to be you could walk into a temp agency and the would find you something in a couple of days. Now its all online and you get flooded with spam.

HaHa! They took Robbie down! Boooooooooo!..... Winter time is fun for living out your teenage fantasies! For example, I always wanted to work at the #1 fast food joint when I was young and this winter, I might just do it! All the free burgers I can eat! Yummy!
