Ebay frustration is rising. One of my auctions was cancelled because "it violated the eBay Accepted Payments policy. The violation occurred when you included the following information in your listing: Payment by cash [...] . Because cash payments do not offer the same level of protection and convenience as online payment methods," you're fucked. I guess I should feel fortunate that they didn't cancel all my listings. RB, go bid on my things!

And the postage change is also chapping my hide. Forget the domestic hike, they've totally eliminated Global economy mail, and the remaining methods seem much pricier than before. Looks like your best bet is the Flat-rate Priority mail envelope at $11 (4 pounds max) anywhere in the world. Too bad Itzykson and Zuber weighs about sixteen pounds. But anyway.

A&K are off to Mesoamerica, so we're Spike-sitting. He's checked out every room in the house nine times and found the best hiding spot in the closet. He's also jumping onto things, slowly learning which ones will bear his weight and/or accomodate his bulk. Only a few mistakes so far. He's a boy-slut and has already spent plenty of time purring on us in bed.

Haven't been playing GHII as often, but I did manage to 5-star Carry me Home on Expert, which was a tremendous triumph. Toren discovered that one of the GHII hackers has hacked a Darkest of the Hillside Thickets song (off the unreleased album, no less) for GHII. That may be even cooler than being one of the official songs. Looking at the hacked songlist, I may need to look into living a life of crime.

Getting excited about Maxicon. I'll be running a sort of vaguely Last Call-inspired game of magical Tarot poker, and there's lots of other cool games on the schedule. And popepat has put a Guitar Hero competition into the mix. I'm thinking of wearing my sparkly foil-wrapped-cucumber-revealing tights, but I should probably put it to a vote: How much are you willing to pay to see me wear them? How much are you willing to pay to see me NOT wear them?

In late-breaking news, Jerry Falwell died. May he rot in ground.

Falwell makes me wish there was a hell, so that he could roast in it.

yes online payments are so much more secure.

like paypal and their 12 month cancel the transaction policy. pay for it on credit then cancel it up to a year later! of course by then you'll likely have already received your goods so the buyer wins in that instance.

however, if your me and you pay using paypal cash and you never do get your goods, well you are plum out of luck.

What WHAT WHAT!!!?
You 5-starred Carry me Home on EXPERT?

The odds adjusters in Vegas just changed me back to 1-3 against for beating you at MaxiAxey... I need to get some more practice in to cover my bookies.

Yeah, Mike left up the rating on "Carry Me Home" when we dropped off Spike to verify. Yes, he did.

I am looking forward to getting my ass kicked in GH at MCon, but I don't have an outfit, and I'm concerned that it's too close to my ONE game, so I'm not giving it that much of my headspace.

In other news...


How much do I have to pay? It's worth it.
