And on that note.... Flaco, you've afforded me the *perfect* opportunity to share with all of you the bit of wisdom instilled in us nice Southern girls from the point we were old enough to comprehend it:

"First time for money, second time for love."
(add own disgustingly honey-thick Suthin' accent for effect as necessary)

The only thing that seems to have changed in the two decades since I first heard this.... is that *now* you just have to make sure the pre-nup's well-worded.

So I met with the boss, and feel a lot better about my contract negotiation. I think we just weren't on the same page. Anyways, that's good news, maybe I can find some more motivation for my job now, and not feel like I was getting screwed.

I'll still see what the resumes I sent out bring in for me though.

Is there anybody out there who has a full time job who manages to work part-time doing something "fun" as a patroller, guide, etc.?

yep, I have struggled with this over the past couple of years since I graduated college. I am now a ski patroller raft guide/ manager. it works prety well, the manager thing gives me consistant off season work and during the peak season I am on the river with only two days a week in the office. but I still ive paycheck to paycheck. It helps to have your girlfriend with the mortgage, and I pay her rent!
