Man, this forum is like communicating with buckshot.

Communicating with buckshot is pointless: buckshot aren't sentient.

Which word did you have to look up?

(yes, I am preparing to mock you...)

Ah well, in that case, no mocking is in order.  It's not unreasonable at all for a sheltered girl like yourself, a retiring flower per se, to be ignorant of the implements and tools of a bloody trade like hunting.  Especially not in Utah, where hunting is looked on as a devilish pastime and rarely practiced save by the most unsavory of characters.

:D

Excepting Deer Hunt, of course, when the entire state gets off school and work. Perhaps it's just because I lived in Spanish Fork for 9 months--saw a lot of hunters there.

Okay, now I've run out of Starving Artist Guide ideas. Ha ha!

I'm looking through my house...hmm, never throw away ANYTHING! Some people say this is obsessive compulsive, but in my experience everything will have a purpose some day...even those leftover five month old mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving. Oh yeah! Um, I'm not saying eat it though! There's a special purpose for the stuff, even if it's just to scare your friends with it.

Stay tuned...for more brilliant strategies...

I'm going to have to disagree.
My mother-in-law, who is *not* a starving artist (she and her husband paid for their family of 10 and all spouses (ok, that was only 2 at the time, but still) to take a 2 week trip to Europe. They paid for everything but food. And they did pay for a few of the meals. She keeps hold of everything. She picks up anything people have put out on big trash day if it appears remotely useful to anyone she might possibly know in the next 6 months.

We are constantly trying to get them to throw stuff out. Most of that stuff is useless.
