When you can't find work in your industry of choice, what did/do you do to pay bills?

Of course, one wishes they could work sunrise to sunset on personal training and portfolio work, but unfortunately that doesn't pay the bills, especially as the months go by.
I'm just wondering what sort of jobs you took in order to get by, especially if you managed to get jobs perhaps not completely unrelated to art. As well as if you were able to land a job that didn't burn you out completely so that you could still manage to get personal work done in your spare time.
I've had to do a lot of QA work in the past, and unfortunately that doesn't lend itself well to having a lot of free time. Not to mention the burnouts from working so long and then you have zero energy when you get home.
Or perhaps, everyone here has managed to find work in time, since you're all pretty talented.
