    Helps if you have great pictures, reputation, description, and probably loyal client base like capnwes. Also, having a large inventory listed on eBay can create some synergies, since I look at the "seller's other items," of any item i find on eBay. Either way, if you would like to continue this discussion there is a separate thread.

    But the real bragging from today is that I got a new job. 20 percent pay bump. Strictly writing instead of running a magazine. WORK FROM HOME.

    As promised a couple of days ago, here's a thrift fit featuring the Grey/Black/White Harris Tweed that Wes sent me last week. I forgot the hat though. My bad.

    On the plus side, I matched my fit to the background!

    That's pretty fantastic. If that was a short, I'd be all over it. Unless, of course, you measured the entire back of the coat with the collar included. Then, we might be in business.

    Went back to get the BB duffle coat, but it was missing the hood so I left it.

    That's what they told me when I enrolled. When the 8 bills came they were 12.75%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 6%, 6%, 4.5% and 4.5%. I've already knocked out the 12.75% and half of the 8% which are also the two with the largest balances. I use the snowball method, plus make extra payments regularly. The part that burns me, is a lot of my classmates were fucking idiots who had grants, scholarships, government funding, or mommy and daddy to help pay for some or all of it. They earned C's and D's. I busted my ass and got a 4.0 and couldn't get any kind of help. On the plus side of that, I am part of a very small percentage of the class who is employed.

    Thank you, ATLjon! Unfortunately, I'm afraid I did the measurement correctly, from the back of the collar to the bottom of the skirt. But I am looking forward to sending it over to a good home :spam: :).


    Dear DM7,
    Gloria, gloria in excelsis!
