The weather today was... Autumnal. It was raining. The wind was blowing. Leaves were dropping from the trees and swirling around in spirals along the ground. All told, rather melancholy. Baby.


As I say in all my eBay posts now: "Payment via PayPal or eBay Payments preferred -- after all, this IS the 21st Century!"

I had three auctions close last nite. All three of 'em are paying by personal check.

I mean, c'mon people! It IS the TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY!!

I s'pose I could just stop accepting checks. But then I'd get all these e-mails: "will you consider taking a check, puh-leeze pritty puh-leez?"

And money is money, I suppose.

Maybe I should only accept gold ingots, and see how that goes over.

My Adorable Co-Workers

Have I mentioned lately how lucky I am to be surrounded by such remarkable co-workers?

Apparently the trial date has been set for one guy, busted for drugs, stolen credit cards, and forging checks.

Turns out another guy, whom I thought was on vacation, has been nailed for stealing. Taking stuff home from work that isn't exactly supposed to be, like, taken home.

If I mentioned where I actually work, well, some of you might be a little worried. Just keep in mind, it's a VERY SMALL percentage of the idiots I work with who are actually EVIL idiots, and they EVENTUALLY get caught. Most of the rest of 'em are just run-of-the-mill annoying imbecile-type idiots.

And there are a handful of us who are still picking up the slack from the slackers -- so you, the public, need not fear. At least, not until we few remaining "good guys" drop in our tracks from exhaustion.
