Auctions and chevrons

It's actually been a pretty productive day for me so far. Of course, that's productive based on my standards which are admittedly quite low. eBay is having a $.10 listing sale today so I took the oppertunity to pop up some items. First and foremost, I relisted the 6 Vera Bradley bags that didn't sell the last time and then tossed in a couple of items that have been useless and taking up space. I'm not really expecting to get much, if anything, but at 10 cents a pop, it's not like it's really costing me anything to give the wheel a spin.

My room is full of clutter and crap that I should offload, but I just never get around to it because it never really occurs to me. From where I'm sitting, I can see things like a 550 piece little mermaid jigsaw puzzle painted by Christian Reese Lassen, bunches of unopened board/card games, dozens of old video games and dvds, etc. All sorts of things I no longer want and should just clear out. Maybe what I'll do is just pick a day and take pictures of all the items and wait until eBay is having another sale and pop it all up there. That's pretty much the deal with the senseo, though I actually took the pictures of the damn thing over half a year ago.

Oh, I also just downloaded the Stargate SG1 movie, Ark of Truth. Talk about a fubar of monumental proportions. I have no idea who over at MGM dropped the ball but letting a screener leak out over 2 months before your DVD's release is a huge fuckup. Since fans can't buy it in stores yet, they're almost forced to pirate it. For each one that does, a certain percentage won't go on to buy the item when it comes out in March. I'd be shocked if it didn't negatively affect sales. I feel a little guilty about the whole thing too, but at least it was never a certainty I was going to buy the dvd anyway. I haven't bought a dvd in years and I almost never watched them when I did pick one up. I'd like to support the franchise and all but just can't convince myself to spend the money.

Oh well. I'm off to watch the film.
