    I'm so hungover, OMG.

    I was in some irish bar on Ponsonby - Pog Mahonies - i think and i saw a couple of nice promo chicks... one was a girl i went to high school and played waterpolo with. They were selling baby irish twister shots, $5 each. I got 4 for $5 :) That plus several shots I bought, and beers, Wiskey 'n' dry's. oh man.

    Anyone else find beers watered-down and expensive last night??? Goddamn, tasted like burnt water :( Hence my sly towards Whiskey 'n' Drys :)

    *sigh*

    Yet another bronze medal for New Zealand.
    Yet I think that the squash bronze was good considering it was againts the world number one.

    Why the heck are you disappointed with Bronze?

    I'm so sick of people slagging off our athletes for not getting Gold and Silver al the time.

    Look at the size of us.

    Look at the incredible LACK of funding our sports men and women have (Sarah Ulmer and Hamish Carter have to advertise McDonalds for christ sake!)

    Any placing in the top 10 is great, anything better is outstanding.

    GRRR, my little 'lack of sleep due to 14 hour work day/night' rant.

    Where's the house at and more importantly when is the house warming or why weren't we all invited? :p

    North Shore still.

    Had a small shindig, but nothing major. I already pissed my neighbours off enough by cranking my guitar amp the first night I was there. I could apparently be heard in the next suburb, wailing away with some AC/DC covers....

    The other week, I realized my DVD collection had grown to the point where I was running out of room for them, so I decided to trademe some old video tapes that were blocking up the place. I figured it would be good to pass on my old Star Wars VHS copies to a good home, because I know not everyone can afford to buy DVDs for their kids, and maybe they'd find their way to a new Star Wars fan.

    But they actually found their way to someone who appears to deal solely in video tapes ... they bought them, then immediately put them up for resale at twice the price I sold them for. It's kind of amusing because the new auction says they're in great condition, which they aren't, and also that it's a 'real collector's edition', which it isn't ... they must have sold thousands of that 97 box set in the Darth Vader case. I'll be kinda annoyed if someone buys them at the inflated price, believing them to be in good condition, but then I guess that's the risk you take with trademe ...

    What a pratt, you should notify trademe of it. I dobbed in someone's auction the other week. A guy was selling a crossbow and a potential buyer was asking if it's good for shooting birds and the seller was saying stuff like he's tried to shoot kingfishers up coromandel. Just encouraging this buyer to probably go out and ty and hit that easy-target wood-pigeon or tui.

    I have to though that most of the people on trademe are "good" people.
    All my dealing have gone soothly accept for my latest one. Which is wierd because we picked it up and the guys said to place feedback - as you do. So we place feedback and then...nothing.

    Once I saw this auction for an air guitar. lol
    That got closed pretty quick.

    What were you expecting? A Christmas card? I don't understand. You picked up the product and placed feedback... nothing else happens. Am I missing something? :p

    Time machines, Air Guitars, Dolphins, all sorts get put up for comedic purposes. It's all in good fun.

    You're allowed to edit your feedback on someone once. So go back to them and either change it from positive to neutral or even negative - gets the point across. Or the more diplomatic and civil way woulod be to email the seller again and say "how about placing positive feedback on me please?"

    Simple enough.
