Woopsie doodle!

So you know that biofeedback dingus I bought? I bought two of them. Here’s how that happened.

I asked Ebay to show me Buy It Now listings, because it was my birthday and I wanted my toy now, now, now. The first listing to come up was £30 cheaper than anyone else. Cool I thought and entered that amount.

Turns out, it wasn’t a Buy It Now, it was an auction – with, like, seven days left on it. I ain’t waiting that long! No problem, thinks I, that’s so cheap, someone will surely outbid me in the last few minutes.

You see where this is going.

So I bought a Buy It Now and then I won the flipping auction a week later. The picture is from the listing; it’s totally that other lady’s lacy bedspread.

It’s new in box with the shrinkwrap and everything, so I’m just going to re-list it. I’ve never sold anything on Ebay, though – have you? Any tips and tricks?

Does Uncle B meditate?
Maybe he start if not.

He does not, Ea and has no intention of starting.

Ah, no doubt because you garden.

Can be therapeutic, unless you spend your time cursing the critters, bugs, and various diseases that kill your seedlings, like we do.

Tried meditation, turns out it’s just another way to trigger a nap.

I’d be delighted if it was a tried and true method of triggering a nap, Durned. I can almost never nap, no matter how much I’d like to.

I like a small cup of hot milk, with some sugar and a splash of vanilla, to help me fall asleep. Also, the Book of Numbers in the Old Testament. Just open anywhere and start reading.

Now napping is something badgers are rather good at. Meditating, not so much…. I got into the habit of taking an afternoon nap years ago (one of the perks of working for yourself) and it’s stuck with me.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
