The SHÄDY ÄCRES get-rich-slow scheme

So here's the scoop: Since mid-November, I've been harvesting my own navel fluff. Why? Because it gives me something to do in the morning.

It was originally one of Sara's brilliant christmas gift ideas. She thought it would be funny to send people my navel fluff glued to cardboard angels or gnomes or something in that general spirit.

Well, that's out the window, because check out the meagre results after a total six months of devoted de-linting, morning and night:

The entire fluff harvest comprises about 5 ml, including the occasional belly hair. Also, notice the piece of inexplicable green paper that snuck into my navel somehow. Your guess is as good as mine.

As you can imagine, I'm not going to hand out these exclusive SHÄDY ÄCRES navel fluff samples for free now. They're much to precious for that.

And I know what you're thinking - Is this just another lame metaphor for blogging? Yes, definitely. But don't worry, it's also a real offer. My navel fluff is not an abstract, it's very real. And it can be yours. For a price.

That's right, you heard me. I would be willing to sell my navel fluff to you. Go ahead and make me an offer - but please, no US dollars. The dollar is so weak now it's just not worth it.

I hear you can start campfires in the wilderness with this stuff.

(regrettably, I have only US dollars.)

Maybe I should just release it into the wild. Or I could try to stuff it back in. Eew.
