Friday Foibles ~~ Ebay Oops!


What y'all been up to? I've been snowed under doing family stuff, cleaning the house, celebrating "Fresh Prince's" 19th birthday yesterday, working on some things for Rose & Thorn (yay for lots of good submissions!), and tackling some editing work.

But I can't let Friday pass without a giggle to get us all in the TGIF mood. Hope your weekend is grand!

@@@

If you're unfamiliar with selling items on ebay.com, I can tell you it's of utmost importance to take crisp, clear, bright photos of the items you are putting up for bids. A great shot is almost as important as a detailed description of the item in order to attract and intrigue bidders.

That being said, there just may be a few exceptions to this rule...times when you might need to check for super shiny surfaces that do not reflect kindly upon the photographer...

Angie Ledbetter said...

Charlie, I think in a rush to list a bunch of items at once, the seller must've missed the reflection in the kettle. LOL

Asked myself the same thing, Lori. :)

Vodka Mom - glad ya enjoyed!

Diane, hope you're a coffee drinker so you don't need to fire up the tea kettle this morning. LOL

Angie Ledbetter said...

LOL Janna. Can't you see something similar happening to me? Maybe that's why I don't sell on ebay.

AMoS - That made me laugh so loud. Thank you! :D

Donna - You would not believe the stuff you see on ebay. Really. Worth a google for sure.

Scobberlotcher - Pretty much says it all. *wink*

Debbie said...

Moon Willow said...

I haven't laughed so hard ,since I don't even know when! That being said,my mind is in a tizzy-wondering what my last Ebay purchase was,and freaking out cause I don't believe I had on Latex gloves when I eagerly opened my new package-eww!!Can Guarantee I never disinfected the item ,a pair of old hand held hairclippers-before electric barber clippers were marketed.They are sitting proudly next to my OLD "BARBERSHOP" collection on my shelf-in the old box it came in! My OCD is now out of control!! Thanks for the EYE-OPENING experience and the Belly laugh!!!!

Oh My Goddess said...

I don't know where to begin...
it's a man?
it's a woman?
it's gender neutral?
and it's just plain naked.
I've been blinded. Surely.

The Things We Carried said...

HELP!!! OMGosh you are killing me. Between teaposts and the recent mooning, where will you next?! This was HILARIOUS!

Angie Ledbetter said...

OMG - All valid questions. Questions I can't truthfully answer. Sorry 'bout your blindness, but I know you laughed. :)

TTWC - I know...I am kinda staid and pent up. Will try to work on that. LOL

I am considering buying a new laptop with a TV tuner card which will allow me to connect my Playstation 3 to it and use the monitor as a TV.What will actually be connected to my laptop (cable wise)? From my understanding, all I need is the HDMI cable from my PS3 to the laptop and it will provide the sound and video. I am probably wrong though.
