So I brought

So, I brought in my artwork for Marianne to look at. She was impressed. She seemed under the impression that I would be willing to do artwork for the gallery for the same rate as I do framing for them. I told her there was no way. My artistic skills are...

It's been a big day.

Lots of stuff happened. Well, not really, but considering it's me, lots of stuff happened. I went into work at noon, as per usual. The owner of the gallery, Marianne, wanted to talk to me about working more hours. As we talked, Sue mentioned some doodles...

I guess I

[I guess I didn't have a lot to say last year at this time][1], but I do have a bit to say now. I don't have a good memory. Ask anyone I know. It's pretty terrible. But I remember last September 11th like it was yesterday. I had only been freelancing a...

I was just

I was just out jogging. I was nearing the end of my 2 miles and getting a bit tired. I guess I dragged my feet a little too much and totally wiped out right on the sidewalk. I feel totally cool right now, especially with a bloody knee that hurts like a...

So I got

So, I got 2 Nintendos off eBay for $35 in "as is" condition. They were untested, but I figured it was worth the risk. The tested ones were going for $50 and $60 each, even if 1 was broken, it was still a good deal for me. Well, I was ecstatic when I...

Doug finally gave

Doug finally gave me the thumbs up to plug his internet connection back in. Over the past couple days, his girlfriend has stopped by.. oh, roughly 10,000 times to ask me why it wasn't working. I mean, I make my living off the internet. I hunt for jobs, buy...

I'm sharing my

I'm sharing my internet connection with my neighbor. I have DSL and a router, and I had an open space, so we ran a cable and badda-boom, it's a shared connection. It's nice because we split the internet bill, so we both get cheap, fast access. Well,...

feardotcom and other ramblings.

As jaimee mentioned, we saw feardotcom tonight. My review is a bit less angry sounding, but still a definite thumbs down. I hate hating this movie. It makes me sad. Sure, it had a weak plot and bad acting and uninspired direction, but it was a horror...

Well one of

Well, one of my auctions finished for $200, which I was pretty excited about. Unfortunately, the winner turned out to be a deadbeat. So, I'm going to have to relist. And that sucks. But such is life. I've been really, really busy lately. Hopefully that...

Why does this keep happening?

It's been a

It's been a really busy couple of days. Today I spent some time updating my dad's webpage. My auctions were also all ending today, so I monitored them and got them ready to go. So far, I've made $340 off the merchandise with eBay, plus $150 selling Fabish...

awesome awesome awesome AWESOME.

The new custom-art.com is doing SO AWESOME that I can't even believe it. It's been just over 12 hours since my ad went out, and already I have 2 sales. I'm pumped. I can hardly believe it. Maybe custom-art.com will actually turn a profit. I'm headed to...

So the custom-art.com

So, the custom-art.com CD is finished, custom-art.com has been given a facelift, and we're all set to start sellin'. The first round of ads should be going out tonight. It's nice, because these mods were pretty quick and fairly easy, but the best part......

Weighin in

I weighed in again this morning, which I haven't done for many Mondays in a row, for fear of actually gaining weight. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that I now weigh 230. I was stuck at 233 for... well, basically forever, which is really, really...

Kick ass.

So, the unveiling of my failed project. Ready, set go! [Here it is][1]. Custom-art.com. I spent $5,000 setting it up, plus getting a merchant account up and running for processing credit card orders, plus getting the whole mySQL, PHP back end set up,...

Errands and more errands.

I was out running errands today. I deposited some checks, mailed off some CDs and VCDs, and stopped at Wal-Mart to return a shitty ICEE maker I bought. As I walked out to my Jeep after stopping at Wal-Mart, I noticed a huge, brand new 6" slice in my back...

So I put

So, I put everything I have on eBay, and it turns out that if I hit my reserve price on everything, I will have lost about $4 on this whole "buy unclaimed freight" experiment. That's not bad, though. Losing $4 is just a lesson learned, and a great lesson,...

I got my goodies.

That's right. I got my stuff. And I only got 1 lame item. Included were [one of these][1], [2 of these][2], [a stupid pair of headphones][3], [an awesome region free DVD player][4], [a surround sound system][5], and [a set of speakers][6]. I think I'll...

Well it was

Well, it was a busy but good weekend. Friday was the traditional Kouri's night with the one and only freakwolf, who I haven't seen in quite some time. We followed the drinky drinks at Kouri's with drinky drink's at rad_jose's pad. Saturday I went to...

I grew some balls.

I grew some balls and spent $550 on some "mystery" merchandise that they say may be worth between $1000-$3800. I'll be satisfied if I get my money back plus a few more electronic toys. I can't wait to be an eBay whore.
