I Want It eBay

As eBay is having 50 cent listings today, I think I'll dedicate some time tonight towards working on putting stuff up to sell. I would really like to get rid of some of this stuff, and eBay might be just the place to do it.

Not much else going on - work, bleh... Waiting to hear back about interview from headhunter. LittleLove has relatives visiting and work at night. I'm feeling kinda blah, so I haven't been doing much.

Serial

Oh yeah, and I called to get my cable turned off today (TV only, I don't know how I'd deal without cable modem) and I was very surprised. The person asked for my address, etc and then the question I knew was coming - "Was there any reason you wanted to cancel the service?" My reply, I thought, should lead them straight into the retention offer pitch - "I just don't watch $40 worth of cable each month." Their reply? "Ok, then we'll just disconnect you, no problem."

What?!?! They didn't even TRY to offer me a deal to keep my service. WTF? It seems to demonstrate that they don't want my business, for whatever reason. Sad, sad, sad.

So I stopped paying as of today, and it will be disconnected in a few days.

Saving $40 per month until I move, at least.
