So Stephen King said I’m Talented

“If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn’t bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.” – Stephen King

Okay, so he didn’t say it directly or anything. But after months of back and forthing with the IRS over ITINs and W-8 forms, learning to read Government-ese, one-handed knife fights with the muppets at Australia Post and being prison-sexed by the exchange rate of the crippled US greenback with a historically high Australian dollar, there IS money in my bank account that wasn’t there a few days ago.

And while I didn’t use it to pay the light bill, I paid the mortgage, which is a like a light bill on crack.

So yes, Steve, I’m quoting you on that one, baby.
