Slayin' the dozens

Yesterday I had the idea to post a dozen entries on LiveJournal. This was an extremely stupid idea, and LiveJournal obligingly threw itself off a cliff so that you would not have to suffer through it. And thank God it did, because frankly, I was running out of ideas.

I was particularly interested in your tales of paying little and charging much on eBay. It confirmed my long-nested suspicions that my Friends list is a crafty lot, and that eBay is a magical device for making free money. However, like happinesstogo, I am far too lazy to take advantage of it, and also, I really have nothing to sell. The only things I own that I think would sell on eBay are things I want to keep, and the one time I had what I thought was a great idea for selling something on eBay, I was informed in all corners that it was highly illegal and that, far from realizing my dream of making a cash killing for almost no effort, what would happen instead is that I would be arrested, or at least roughly sued.

Today is another work day. I was at the office until 7PM last night, which sucked nine varieties of balls, and went home and slipped into a delicious coma. But today: no fooling around. I have much freelancing to do, and an interview with a rock and roll superstar in a couple of hours, as well as all the office stuff. So try not to be too interesting today, although posts about how charming and attractive I am are always welcome.

You are charming and attractive, as Sadly, No! writers go.


Also eBay is a tricksy kind of magic that turns on its users all the time.

I've been toying with the idea of liquidating my remaining comics on Ebay. I hear that there is good scratch to be made by simply selling the comics singly and charging the outrageous price of $4.50 shipping and handling for each book. I have two long boxes left from a misspent youth, and this sounds appealing. However, it also sounds like a lot of work, and I'm pretty lazy.

I noticed that! I said to myself, "clearly, Livejournal is not built to withstand the sheer awesomeness of a dozen Leonard posts."

But really, it turns out there was a big outage (as in, six outages in a row and then like an explosion) in the neighborhood of San Francisco where they keep the Internet.

I was actually saddened by the LJ crappery, vis-a-vis your 12-post efforts, and posted as much in an entirely unrelated forum.

My office was part of the office! Unfortunately we weren't sent home as others were. Because the damn lights and computers kept coming back on. Then going off. Then coming back on. And finally, they came on for good. God damn it.

Oh no. My office wasn't part of the office. It was part of the outage.

So sorry.
