Eric: Ahhh... nothing says 'wedding' like 'getting rid of some crap!'

And hello and good morning, action force! It's the start of a new week -- and as it works out, a pretty important week for Weds and I. We get up tomorrow morning, bright and early, and head down to Boston to board a plane which then takes us to Las Vegas, Nevada. There, I go to a work related conference with other folks from work. In the evenings, we hang out and listen to the sounds of the bells.

And then, at the end of the week, there's a wedding. And that's downright awesome.

Needless to say, of course, we need more money than we currently have. And as we have done before and promised to do this time, we're turning to eBay -- land of getting rid of stuff -- to raise said funds while also clearing some room. It's win-win!

My eBay page is still here, and there's about 30 items up right now with more being added this afternoon. It's cool stuff! Here's a few highlights:

I won't kid you -- this has been a very expensive month for us. Between moving, getting household stuff set up, and preparing for a Wedding (just because we're going the Vegas route doesn't mean there's not, y'know, money that needs spendin') things are a lot tighter than we'd hoped for this stage of things. If folks have an inclination to use the donation button on the sidebar, we'd certainly be appreciative, though I'd admit I feel odd asking for that. Thus, we put stuff up for sale, and continue to do so. So please, bid early, bid often, and tip your waitresses. You know, your waitress doesn't get paid very much -- it's your appreciation that means she eats. Now, please enjoy the dulcet tones of mister Rudy Vallee.

The comments alone are worth checking them out.

I'm pondering the Flight ones -- do you know if they have Johan... I think it's Johanna? Um. She (I think the gender is female) did some egyptian-themed stuff for at least one of the Flight anthologies, but I don't recall which one...

*hugs y'all*

First: That Planetary, a buy it now price of 50 bucks? Is that the Absolute edition or something?

Second: I know what you mean by expensive, wayy too much. I have a wedding coming up, reception and all. A move to...somewhere, depending where she gets her job after her internship. And..yeah. Money being tight isn't even remotely accurate for me. Money being non existant is.
