Blast From the Roommate Past

You guys will love this one. I have had some awesome roommate stories. My mom just brought me some of my letters I sent home from the post high school, before marriage years. You have to read the following typed letter from one of my roommates to another. You will love it!!!

Dear roommate

I am shocked!!!!! Let me remind you of a few small things. You blow your nose with my tissue; you wipe your butt with my toilet paper; you use my hair dryer; you use my toothpaste and you watch my movies. Now I'M sorry that you got me sick and I am therefore sorry that I had to use 4 tablespoons of your cough syrup. But really, was that worth complaining about using my things. I gladly let you use everything of mine. Now let me remind you that you are the one who got me sick in the first place. But I'm making a deal with you; you don't touch my stuff and I won't use your cough syrup. And another thing, please stay out of my closet I found my very expensive white sleeveless blouse in your closet, wrinkled, damp, and with a stain on it. I don't let people borrow my clothes; my parents spend hundreds of dollars on designer apparel, So we have a deal you have your cough syrup and I have my belongings and we won't have to argue, or complain to roommates about each other. Thanks for your cooperation.


Do you miss the roommate years?

She's Not Done Yet

I sent the unpaid claim to eBay on the 7th day as described in the message sent to her. This was her response...

[HeY I ToLd u wHy i dIdNt gEt uR ITeM!..
WhY U dO DaT]

So to give her some of the same information, I sent this message...

I paid money to list this item. I want my money back for listing it and you took the sale from another eBay member that really wanted it and would have paid for it. How is that fair to me? This is why you don't bid or agree to buy an item on eBay unless you do it.

Then I got this good one from her...

[if u want to know sumone hacked in my ebay ok im really sorry..]

Note: The writing changed and all the sudden it's not that she doesn't want my freaken item. It was that "sumone" hacked into her brand new eBay user account to buy some newborn flower clips. Wow, I will keep you posted. It should be good when we close the dispute and eBay issues her a strike.

i aM a FrEaKeN IDiOt

Here it is word for word, Blake and Lindsey...

For most of you that know already, I have been selling on eBay for about a year now. I probably sell about 25 items a week. I have found that for the most part people are very nice and easy to work with. I have dealt with very new buyers who are still learning the system as well as very experienced buyers who most of the time become a repeat customer.

The following is correspondence from an eBay member who purchased one of my items on a "buy it now," which means they had to click through 3 screens when they agreed to commit to buy my item. As a seller, I require payment to be received through paypal within 2 days of the close of the auction; whether it be a buy it now or auction style. This eBay member never paid or responded after 2 days so this email was sent...

[Aug 5, 2008] Hello. This item was won 2 days ago and I still have not heard anything or seen payment. Please respond so I can get them right out to you. Thanks.

I never heard anything so I always send another a couple days later. This is what was sent...

[Aug 7, 2008] Hello again. This is my 2nd attempt to reach you regarding your purchased but not paid for item. I require payment within 2 days of end of auction. Please submit payment right away so I can get them out to you. A unpaid claim will be sent to eBay on the 7th day of unpaid item. Thanks for your prompt attention to this message.

Later that day I recieved the first reply...

[Aug 7, 2008] I dOnT WaNt iT IdIoT!

Then only moments later, this...


So, I decided to respond with this...

[Aug 7, 2008] Why did you agree to buy it then? You shouldn't be on eBay agreeing to buy things if you don't freaken want them. Sellers pay money to list things that people don't freaken pay for.

I got this one message in response...

[Aug, 7, 2008] I DeLeTeD It oK So dOnT EvEn sAy sh*T

Who the hell is this person? Are there really people out there that know how to turn on the computer, set up an eBay account and send email messages like that? CLASSY!

Recipe Time

Here's to you, Kyra and mom...

Hot Chicken Ceasar Sandwich

Large loaf of french bread ( I use, the rosemary basil or the sun-dried loaves to add to the flavor. Walmart has some yummy specialty breads)
1 bottle of ceasar salad dressing
1/2 cup fresh shredded parmasean cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 pound chicken breast (deli style)
6 slices of provolone cheese
oregano to taste

Cut the bread in half. Smother each side of the bread with the 3 shredded cheeses. Put into a low broiled oven until melted. Watch carefully to not burn. Take out and smother it with the dressing, then chicken breast and lastly the provolone cheese and sprinkle oregano. Place back into warm (maybe 275) for about 5-10 minutes. Cut into sandwich size pieces. Enjoy!

Fly Swatting Lessons...anybody????

Okay so if any of you know Matt, you know that he is the best at lessons for everything. Especially for me with technical issues. Patience is his middle name. Well, lately the flies have decided they like our house the very best. And if it is any surprise, I can't swat them for the life of me. I can spend the whole time while the girls eat their breakfast or lunch to swat the crap out of one. Well, I think I'm wasting more of my energy then getting any closer to killing them.

Well...that's when Matt comes in. He gave the lesson on the form. He says that, "it's all in the wrist...just like tennis." There you have it. I have killed 2 since. I think my problem before was that my whole body got involved because they were pissing me off so much.

So if your looking for some one on one lessons, we will schedule you in.

Mac & Chesse Crackers???

Did Kraft's Mac and Cheese Dinner turn into crackers? I would have been as confused as the lady I saw in the grocery store today as she picked up what she thought was some mac and cheese for a hefty $2 a box. Yep, and for as well as the highly projected sale item was supposed to be, Kraft, in my opinion sure failed at the idea of making these little guys look like the same old box of Kraft Mac and Cheese. As for the taste...I was not all that impressed myself.

Have you tried them? What did you think? Did Kraft fail as they tried to make the cracker box look just like their award winning Kraft mac and cheese dinner box?
