An Official eBay Seller

I am quite excited. I just sold my first item ever on eBay today. I sold a cell phone that I wasn't using that is actually brand new (I had insurance on my old phone, the old one broke, I got a new one, but in the mean time I bought another one).

The whole eBay thing turned out to be much easier than I had thought, although it did take a while to sift through all of the options with how to set up your ad. You can bold it. You can add a photo. You can add a boarder to to the ad. You can add some color. You can add a "thumbnail" description. All of these things cost money. I think the whole thing cost me about $5 to list it and then another % of the sale to PayPal.

I just dumped off the package at the Post Office and bought insurance, registered it, and did a return receipt confirmation. This is a bit nerve wracking too. What if the guy doesn't get it? What if he crushes me and my eBay ranking goes down (I am at 100% right now!!!)???

More Trains for You Train People

For those of you with a free hour this weekend (December 9th - 11th), stop by the Menlo Park Train Station to check out the annual exhibit of model trains. It's supposed to be quite cool for both adults and kids. The exhibit is put together and hosted by the West Bay Model Railroad Association. The exhibit is in the building 100 feet to the south of the actual Menlo Park Train Depot. Check it out this weekend! Don't cost nothing (well, you might want to give them a donation or something - 'tis the season!).

The Olive Tree and the Fig Tree

I read this today and liked the I am sharing it with all of you:

"The olive tree ridiculed the fig tree because, while she was green all the year round, the fig tree changed its leaves with the seasons. A shower of snow fell upon them, and, finding the olive tree full of foliage, it settled upon its branches and broke them down with its weight, at once despoiling it of its beauty and killing the tree. But finding the fig tree denuded of leaves, the snow fell through to the ground, and did not injure it at all."

My interpretation: Don't think you're too cool for school because the moment you do, the world will come crashing down upon you. Be humble.
