Happy Pancake Day!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Pancake Day!   …and since my mouth is watering like crazy after looking at all these pancake photos… I think I will celebrate with a dinner of pancakes this evening too!  Can’t wiat!

38 bandannas

School gave me hell this week.  No mercy.  I hit it hard and actually ended up getting everything done early. Go me!  Since I had a little extra time on my hands I decided to start cleaning.  I don’t mean the regular household chores… I mean the… I’m moving 2500 miles in 2.5 months type of cleaning.  I thought I got rid of everything I owned when I moved to California from New York.  Either I accumulated a lot more shit over the last year than I thought,  or I didn’t scale down as much as I thought I did in 2008.

For example,  I went through my bandannas.  They were not all in the same place, so I found them all, then I organized and folded them all.  When all was said and done, I counted 38 bandannas in total.  An assortment of varying colors, and patterns – some dupes, but only the very basic colors like black, white and blue.  It was a beautiful array, but I was hard pressed to figure out why anyone… let only myself, would need 38 bandannas.  I thought maybe I could sew them all together and make a poncho or or a blanket.  I think I wore bandannas a lot more when I lived in New York.   I figure they’ll come in handy one way or the other in Alaska… so I bagged them and made a mental note not to buy any more bandannas for as long as I live.  I’m covered.

I also got in depth with my wardrobe.   It serves a purpose.  It dresses me.  I’m not going to need a lot of frill where I’m headed next… and that freedom is kind of overwhelming.   I scaled back considerably.  I have a huge box of things to sell and a huge bag of things that I thought would be better donated.  I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with my 15 purses.  I feel like I need them all.  This, after selling at least ten at my last garage sale.   I’m really not that gluttonous.   It would seem that I am, but this is just accumulation over 11 years.  The only accumulation that I have left to part with.  That was just in the bedroom.   I didn’t have the energy to start sorting my books.  I still don’t know what I want to do with them.  I know it’s not practical to live the life of a perpetual traveler and have a huge book collection.  I would love to send my library back to New York along with some other things… but I know that will be costly.

I have a lot to think about.  Enjoy some photos from my walk with Stacy..

Domain Name Auctions at

I haven’t used in a long time so I figured I’d give them another shot since I’m liquidating my domain name portfolio.  I always had mixed results with selling domain names at Ebay.  I had quite a few large sales early on in my career as a domainer… then it seemed like starting charging more than some of my domains were selling for… so I stopped.    I have been selling some really kick ass domain name for dirt cheap.  I’ve been pushing the sales at facebook, twitter, and the domain name forums and while the names are selling, they are selling for way below value.   I going to be posting more deals as the days go on… for now check out what I’ve got up for sale at ebay right now!  The links with take you to the ebay auctions… the images are the logos I made for the domain names.   Logos can be included for and extra $5.00. | | |
