eBay

July 9th, 2006 (03:41 pm)

As has been the case with many internet-related things, I am late to the eBay party. However, I just want to say that once you realize that there's plenty of people out there who want to buy your dumb crap, you suddenly want to sell ALL your dumb crap, a piece at a time. I even found an awesome widget that shows me the current selling price of all my junk, so I can check it obsessively.

We're trying to sell our old couch, and some country bumpkin is supposed to come by today to look at it and perhaps take it away. He kept sending me these bizarre emails last night asking me things like the racial makeup of my neighborhood, so he could determine if it would be safe to bring his daughter. wtf, dude? I wanted to write back: "Please stop being an offensive asshole and just buy my damn couch."

Can anyone out there explain the importance of tags to me? One day, all the cool websites started having them, but I don't really understand what they're for.

I'm going to a fish fry tonight. My brother-in-law is cooking, though, so it will be better than most.

tags are like memories, but easier to use. if you click on a tag for an entry, you can see all other entries with the same tag. if you go to manage>tags, you can also see all your tags and entries with the same tags. it's kinda redundant, what with the memories option, but whatever.

That's what I thought, but then I was thinking, "Why would they have tags when they have memories?" But now tags seem like a new internet standard or whatever, so I guess it makes sense for LJ to have them too.
