I Bought an RV!

A short while I ago, as an aside, I mentioned that I might be buying an RV to live in. It seemed like a good idea, so every day I checked ebay to see what sorts of deals were to be had. I wasn't ready to buy, but I figured it would be good to know what's available for when the condo sold.

I sat in my living room chatting with some friends on AIM when one of them brought up the RV idea. While I explained it to them I opened up ebay. By default it shows the most recently listed RVs on top. The very top one was an R-Vision Trail Lite, one of the few models I'd really liked. I glanced over at the price and it was $14,000, less than half of what they usually go for. There must be something wrong with it.

I opened the listing and read through the description. The front "shotgun" seat was missing. No big deal. They'd backed into something and the fiberglass around the tail light was cracked. No big deal. The couch wasn't the one specifically made for the RV. No big deal.

On The Geek Speak

Lately, I've been reflecting on my younger years and all the wonder little things that made me smile as a kid.

Tamagotchis and Pogs were a couple of my favorite things when I was just a wee little lass.

Ahh, yes. Me and my Tamagotchi had a love/hate relationship. It would yell, yell, and yell some more after playing with it until my fingers hurt - then eventually I would throw it under my bed. Of course, I always reset it and start anew. Eventually, I'd lose that little guy and I'd get a new one. I had quite a few of these little things.

Pogs were one of my favorite little games between my sister and I. We would fight over them a lot, but it was a cool idea.
