You just need to stalk ebay and keep waiting for the ones that slip by. I missed out on a mackie blackjack card for £35 a few days ago and a Konnekt 8 for £42. now it's all mbox1's for £50, ffs. Also stuff like Gumtree, saw a mint mpc60 for £350 on there, should have just got it to resell.

still a fckn corporate lawyer. just spent the entire morning listening to my colleagues babble about their miserable problems in their respective geographic regions. And all I could think of was how do I EQ my snare when I get home.

Dying slowly inside.

Male Escort.
The pay is well, the hours flexible, the women are so appreciative. Many tip more then the fee. Usually, the hubby is a bigwig and doesn't mind my presence. In many ways, I am keeping watch over their gal and helping out a situation that could otherwise go in the wrong direction. It sounds sleazy, but no secks is involved and it is easy to learn to pay attention to people and listen intently and get paid for it. Meals are paid also. The cool part is watching the women grow up after they first beleive they are hiring a hooker. Then they realize the utility of just having a male friend escort them around while dining out or shopping or going for a drive. Would be cool and fullfilling to do it for free as a friend, just for fun, but people believe they are getting something or real value and worth when they pay for it, and it is on their terms. What a mixed up world we made for ourselves, huh?

Man, interesting - why don't you head over to Reddit and initiate an AMA? Would be interesting, I think.

I Am A, where the mundane becomes fascinating and the outrageous suddenly seems normal.
