    Hey, Dudes, I remember when your friend O’Ceallaigh gave me a hard time about payperblog. He said something along the lines of, “Yeah, well it hasn’t so much as bought me a cup of coffee. It still hasn’t bought him a cup of coffee since he doesn’t drink the stuff, but it has covered his ass — literally — since it bought the clothes he’s wearing. And let me tell you from personal experience, payperblog work is more reliable than unemployment insurance.
