It's a good thing my neighbor has wi-fi, so at least I have internet. I feel so cut off without my phone. I don't have a landline, I don't have an office phone, I just have my cell phone. So being without it is beginning to make me feel kind of panicky. I know--people did without them for millennia. (But don't you think you'd like to have a cell phone if you were somewhere hiding from a cave bear?)

Anyway, I feel lonely, even though I'm not in much less contact with humans than usual.

So, now I can make copies of my VHS tapes and then sell off the originals on eBay. (What would be unethical, for those of you who are wondering, is if I made copies and sold the copies on eBay.)

Considering that people sell $1 spells on eBay, fer chrissakes, as well as telephone "aura adjustments", perhaps I could make CD recordings of a relaxation session and sell those (containing long and short versions).

Not DVD movie clips, but only because I would have no idea what to wear for something like that.

And no video camera.

Or maybe I could do wedding drafting.

Is your phone text-message capable? Since I'm cut off from the world at home, I've become SMS-dependent.

I know it can receive text messages from a few sales texts that Nextel has sent me,but I don't know if I can send them. (I don't even use the direct-connect function now, obviously.)

I'm sure you could make some money on a relaxation CD. As you say, there's lots of stranger stuff going up on eBay.

I tried to buy a piano for a $1! Obviously, it didn't work. And, if it had, I would have wound up driving to Michigan to pick the damned thing up, only to get it home and realize in a stupifying way that I live on the second floor.

So, for once, karma worked for me.
