I got paid.

In, like, old-ass money. I did a $100 computer job for one of my clients and he paid me with this.

First, he gave me nineteen Joseph Barr one dollar bills. Apparently, Joseph Barr was only in office as the secretary of the treasury for around a month.

Next, he handed me twenty-one silver certificates, all one-dollar bills.

He also handed me two quite old ten dollar bills, and two quite old twenty dollar bills.

So to recap, I was handed forty one-dollar bills, two tens and two twenties. All of them were old, not overly common pieces of currency.

The Porcupine Story.

So the other day I met this guy on Facebook named Josh. We talked a fair amount on AIM, and last night we decided to meet here today. Well he got here about 11:30 this morning, just as my mom was leaving. Now on to the funny occurrence. I was trying to show off my 10kV power supply when I needed a different wire, so I went to the barn to get one. Instantly I became aware of something moving at the base of the stairs, and there was yet another damn porcupine in there. I ran in, turned to Josh and said, rather casually, “excuse me for a second, I need to shoot something.” I grabbed the gun and ran out the door, seeing his very inquisitive look out of the corner of my eye as I passed. I went to the barn, aimed and fired. As I came back in, he looked at me and just kind of quietly asked “may I ask, what did you just shoot?” I told him, and we had a fantastic laugh about the circumstances.
