I have been fascinated with Kyle MacDonald from the moment I saw his interview in CNN. He is the kind of trader I want to be. From one red paperclip, he had traded up for equipment. His goal is to turn the paperclip into a house. His deadline is in July. Last I've seen the interview, he was trading a beer keg and beer for a snowmobile. Since then, he had acquired a sign and had traded it in for a cube van. Isn't that great? It would be so awesome if he actually gets the house.
Have you guys been to the post office recently? Mail had jumped another 2 cents, making a piece of paper $0.39 to just get from point A to point B. Ridiculous. They say the raise is important to keep people employed and to keep up with the decrease of mail service since email had soared. Hmm, I think that the Postal Service would be used more often if these following guidelines are enforced:
1. Be open on CONVENIENT hours in convenient locations. I won't go to the PO if it's in the bad part of town, without parking and/or is only open on days not ending in "y".
2. Have more windows open. When there's more than 5 people in a line, it is okay to help the person behind the counter. Honestly.
3. DO NOT BREAK PACKAGES THAT HAVE BEEN MARKED "FRAGILE". Nuff said.
4. Establish a reason to use the post office other than mailing packages. I love receiving packages so make us use you rather than UPS or DHL.
Here's a snapshot of the stamps I recently purchased. Aren't they cute?
Lindsay and I were talking about our virtual class experiences and had posted an entry on her site. Well, here's the second genius of our class. I've taken the name and location to protect his/her identity. I hope you find the postings as painful as I did:
Well hello all!!!!
I hope you all are having as warm a winter as I am so far. Im not really sure what to write here so it's just going to be a bunch of random stuff (if that). Hmmmmm, well I guess this is a good spot to share some personal info. I am actually an escaped lab monkey who was made to be super-smart. Although I still enjoy bananas and flinging poo. "wink wink". Well that was entertaining. I hope you guys can figure out some cooler stuff to write than that, my brain doesnt work as well as it used to. Peace.
Well hello everyone, I've been doing this stuff all day so if I already posted whatever. I hope you all have a good semester and good luck with this online delight.
Like you ___, I have only the vaguest ideas of what Anthropology is about.
Don't you feel like you're more superior (or dumbed down) for just reading that posting?
Lastly, Brad and Angie are pregnant. Chris and Gwynnie are too. Why is everyone following the TomKat trend? Agh!
