Update on activities - new ways of spending?

Well since I posted last I have become an eBay user. This is not a good thing really. It's just a whole new way for me to shop and possibly purchase items that maybe I need (and maybe not.) All I can say is that in a week, I have found and bought a new widget to replace Georgie the PDA - now 4 years old and slow, slow, slow (files are so big these days). I also seem to have acquired a few old knitting mags - some more interesting than others - as well as some sock yarn for my sock warrior stint in Sock Wars III (I will triumph! Doom to all who stand in my way.)
There's all manner of crap out there that people expect to get paid for. Oh but wait! I can do this too and I found myself looking around the room 5 minutes ago thinking of things I could list for sale - clothes (who needs them?), ironing board (certainly don't use that), vacuum cleaner (totally overrated cleaning).
We also have all these bikes, 7 in total. Perry does use a range of them but really... I have a 'flat bar' and a weighsatonandIcan'tmoveit mountain bike. The rest are his. Two mountain bikes, a flat bar and a few extraneous road racers. He has one set up on a trainer in the back room to keep fit when it rains (see the pic of our indoor road warrior). Surely I could just pop one of those on eBay, make a bit of cash and support not only my yarn habit but my newly discovered eBay shopping addiction. Easy peasy! Hmm, he may notice though must be careful and use stealth... I shall work on this and get back to you all soon with my results.
So says Sockittome, Sock Warrior extraordinaire!!
