Virtual Flea Market

Dinner with the neighbors went well. I made strawberry and regular margaritas, a pineapple/mandarin orange/yellow cake, and hummus. They barbecued tri-tip, potatoes, and cooked corn. Everything was tasty and normal and the conversation didn't lull so I count it as a success.

I made the hummus according to my Uncle's instructions, so I knew it would be full of garlic. But what I didn't expect is that when you put a tiny bit on pita bread and take a bite, the garlic bites back. Yowza. I'll be leaking it from my pores for days.

Looking through the classifieds, I'm having a hard time finding full-time jobs that fit my experience level. Most of the jobs are contract, which appeals to my fear of commitment.

I've started offering my possessions for sale on the internet. I've got an imaginary goal of raising $500 through the sale of my stuff, but judging by what I've posted so far, that'll take about five hundred years. Here are a few choice items, click on the links to buy:

  • Blue Guitar, CD - A girl I worked with told me this CD was stolen from her car, it was her favorite, and she couldn't find a replacement. Not anywhere. So, in a burst of short-sightedness, I found it and bought it on the condition that she pay me back. After it arrived, she quit her job and disappeared.
