I Guess You Can Get Paid For That, Too

On the “unexpected career tracks” theme, I just came across Jellio, a company that makes toy-and-game themed furniture and home accessories.  I think it’s a genius idea, actually - why not inject some play into your day to day environment?  And hey, it’s got to be a good business if they can charge $500 for what’s essentially a Star Trek diorama.  Think anyone wants to buy my old Barbies for $750?  For an extra fifty bucks, I can turn them into a lamp pull-cord!

You know, if this whole grad school thing bombs (taking my self-esteem with it), it’s good to know I’ve still got career options.
