I don't know what to write about. I've been sitting here looking at guitars on eBay/listening to "House Hunters" in the background. I think "Property Virgins" was on once. We watch a lot of HGTV. The lady on "Virgins" (as I like to call it) has a Canadian accent. I find myself saying "oot" and "aboot" more every day, alternately laughing at myself and wishing I could somehow strangle the TV sound when that woman speaks.

You know what I don't get? On these shows people always say "My furniture won't fit in the bedroom/den/office/living room/laboratory." Hey people - you bought your furniture somewhere. Did you know you can go back and buy different furniture? And that they will probably take your old furniture on trade? You could also sell it on craigslist, if you want to deal with the weirdos. It's really not a big deal. Your budget for buying a house is $500,000 and you can't afford a few pieces of furniture?

I sold a guitar on eBay tonight. I think. The dude that bought it hasn't paid me yet. It would be really nice of him to do so. I got bills to pay, bro! Just kidding. But seriously.

I didn't sell it because I'm poor. I sold it 'cuz I'm a wheeler dealer when it comes to guitar. I was looking through some pictures of old guitars and I had already forgotten about 4 or 5 of them. I only have one guitar I've kept for more than a year, and it's the one I'll keep forever. It's a Guild DV-52. That's an acoustical guitar. I've had it for a little over 3 years. Maybe tomorrow I'll take a little snapshot so I can share it with all of my faithful readers.

I'm looking for the electric guitar that I'll keep forever. I will continue to wheel and deal until I find it. Or until I run out of money.

I have to save up for furniture. My office chair won't fit in the bathroom.


  1. I think Teagan nailed it the other day in her post where she was talking about thinking about what she'd blog about but losing all those thoughts when she sits down to blog. I think you did fine with finding a topic, though.

    It'd be way-cool to see the guitar that you're so fond of.

    I also probably looked like an idiot laughing to myself in the library about those last 2 lines. Thanks.

  2. My favorite on "Virgins" is when they look at the bed in a bedroom. "OOO. That bedding will have to go." It's not even their bed! Or they don't like the wall color. Paint! If it's not completely move-in ready, it's a "fixerupper." Guess that's why we got our house at such a good deal.
