Well have you dusted it out? like using a can of compressed air? Then maybe just take one of those car things you hang from the mirror and just lay it on top of the back of your monitor and that should do the trick.

Frickin hell this sucks. My emotional doom is just over the horizon. What will I do without my baby!? I can't afford a new monitor right now!! Shit shit shit.

I take donations ;)

I see real hot CRT deals on craigslist all the time: http://www.craigslist.org

YMMV depending on where you live. Hopefully your monitor turns out ok though

Yep, it's a gonna die mon and yep it's pretty cheap to get a new or slightly used one. Look in your yellow pages for recycled computers, we have one and you can get a 19" gateway that's 2 years old for about $75-!
