Painting Out the Door

I had this dream last night. I was sitting with an older man, and we were at work, having a general conversation about work and ourselves in relation to it. He was a new employee, while I had been working there for a while.

I made this observation that I often had an impulse to throw something, and that several times a week I had to restrain myself. He said something along the lines of, "I often wonder if I'm painting out the door just so I can pay for my internet connection."

I got out of bed just so I could Google that phrase. I feel like 'painting out the door' has something to do with art, but I found nothing. Where did I get that? What could it mean? I'll have to make something up.

Adventures in Advertising

I've been experimenting with Facebook ads. It's really amazing how much they know about people, and what they can tell advertisers. The problem is that it's going to expensive if I decide to go all out. They charge by the click, and I set a low limit. Even that is bringing in likes, but I could easily double the amount I'm spending and probably not sell enough books to cover the cost, so I'm torn between dumping in some real money to see what happens, or going for a slower but less expensive approach.
