I want to live like common people [Mar. 14th, 2001|09:20 am]
Roy Janik
or: Gonna make it... Gonna make it

Just got my paycheck, and threw $1000.85 bucks onto my credit card. I'm now down to 2188 dollars of cc debt. However, because of my aggressive plan of debt-reduction, I've got to watch my money very carefully. So it's back to ramen noodles and Royal Basmati rice, which is fine by me. It'll help me eat less, too.

In surprising news, it appears that I somehow still have a First USA mastercard. Didn't I cancel all 914393423 of those on that far-away night of productiveness?

ONe of my not so subtle goals in life

is to own a corporation and make it very very AOL-Time Warner type big! Then change the name mysteriously in the night to THE MAN INDUSTRIES. I think the world needs that type of blatant honesty. Also, I would monitor employees carefully (we'll own the banks they have accounts in) and anyone spending money on products not related to our corporation will be "kept down" via pay cuts and lacks of promotions. Also once a week, one lucky employee, below management of course, would have their name drawn out of a hat to be targeted for disaster (car theft, home arson, child kidnapping) just to make sure they don't get too far ahead in the world.

It's been done before, but I . . . I can't say any more about it. I've already said too much. They're watching me . . .

It would be great to do something like this, but fully disclose your intentions ahead of time. Also, pay your employees a stupid amount of money so that they'd be willing to put up with it.

Re: 3rd world gumbo

I was about to suggest to Roy that he call you up for recipes. If anyone knows about eating on less than a dollar a day, that would be Phil.

Re: 3rd world gumbo

Yeah, I've got this HUGE bag of basmati rice from Sam's that I bought a long time ago, so any rice cooked effectively costs me nothing. Wee!
