Might I suggest that you use this time off to learn something? Quantum Physics, perhaps, or if you feel creative, lapidary? And I'm sure you've tried finding work at both icanhascheezburger.com and Amazon.com? I know Jeff, there, is also crazy smart, and might be willing to hire you just for that reason alone.
Also, re your money woes, do you have a PayPal account? I live near Northgate, and I'd be willing to give you twenty bucks for use on your phone. Any yes, I AM that crazy.
