Adventures in eBay  
I won! HA! Someone tried to outmaneuver me at the third minute before closing, but neener neener, I was watching and countered.

I've only done a few auctions and I always get smoked at the last minute (because I am cheap with my max bids). So it feels particularly good to grab one. Not to mention I feel virtuous because it's not even for me!

I should eBay some of my stuff in the garage. It's not doing anyone any good out there.


Tomorrow I have to get up early, not take a shower (because my bathroom is a mess again - the shower door wasn't properly sealed, so they had to re-do it), and drive across the city. joy. Traffic.


Second funniest thing I saw today:

At Best Buy, I went wandering through the notebooks, since I'm probably going to need one by January. And one of them has a sign on it: "Plenty of memory to run Windows Vista!" and I look -- the machine has 520 MB RAM. Bwahahaha! Will that even open the system with that little memory?


And by far the funniest thing for today for those who haven't seen it yet:


which takes the awesome cake. If you're in SG-1 fandom, don't forget to check out the Just For Fun! link....


(via greycoupon who manages to find a lot of good crack somehow....)

Yay for eBay victory! *g* And good luck with the traffic!

I take it Vista is a memory-ho? I don't know much about the system beyond the fact that most people I know who have it hate it.

apparently, yes. I think it was Consumer Reports or something like that, which said Vista uses 1 GB RAM all on its own, so they recommend 2. Which make 500 MB just ridiculous.

Your icon is FTW! :D

:D I found a lot of fun Santa/holiday/Solstice icons out there. I think I have about 40 saved in my photobucket. *sheepish* The Naughty Santa!Jack is my favorite one that I've found so far.

Although Santa!Lorne is a pretty close second...

Santa!Lorne is, indeed, awesome. I wouldn't mind HIM coming down my chimney...

Indeed. :P
