There I was debating to myself about treading on thin ice and opening with a Synder blast.

Hm, I've just learned more about that particular movie moment now than I'd ever cared to.

Hi Slarti. I think Dalek might have missed you... he's subtle, so it's difficult to say.

So is it just common practice on eBay now to try and negotiate backdoor purchases?

Listed some stuff yesterday and I've already had two completely different people message me asking if there's a Buy It Now price / how much I'd take to close the auction early.

I mean 1) there's no Buy It Now on the auctions, so no. And 2) there's already bids on the stuff, so how do people think that's fair?

Obviously I've told em no, but it's just weird that I've had two in less than 24 hours. Did I miss a memo or something?

Same memo I missed, as I sold a bunch of TFs over the last week and had a parade of people going 'whats the BIN?' THERE IS NO BIN IT IS AN AUCTION, SPOONFACE! GRR.

And because my settings are all messed up, I can't do overseas shipping if I wanted. Despite stating this in the listing, I still get randoms from far away places asking if I'll ship abroad... sigh.

I fill out as many of the item specifics as I can, and still get people asking the size of things as well...pfft.






In the last two years, I have had people buy stuff from me and then email asking if I've anything else they might be interested in too. But I don't mind that. That's quite nice, I think

Not recently but I've had BIN offers on auctions in the past as well. For things that always wind up selling for more than the price offered by these kind people.

My weekend plans have been ****ed by the Never Say Never Again screening I was supposed to be going to on Sunday being cancelled just five days beforehand (because of having too many movies to show apparently. Someone should have noticed that. Is Toxic Avenger IV a bigger draw for da kids?). They've said they'll try to reschedule but I'm now desperately hoping the Octopussy and View to a Kill screenings don't go the same way and am rationalising it as "It's not an EON film, it doesn't count".

All this effort and travelling and cost over the last year will look pretty pointless if I don't actually see every Bond film on the big screen.

What do you mean it looked pretty pointless anyway?

So for the past... Two weeks, I think?... We've been under siege by an army of variously sized spiders. Spiders on the ceiling, spiders on the bed... At the height of it Hound killed 10 spiders in a day. The next morning we woke up and there were 4 squashed spiders in bed with us. Then later I was sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee and a spider fell out of my hair.

The siege seems to be almost through, but I've pretty much had enough of waking up to spiders everywhere. Don't suppose anyone knows if the citrus oil/water "repellent" I've found online will work to keep the little shits out of my hair (literally)?

In WHSmug and spotted the cover of SFX which has ... only details on the new flipping Preacher (off of Vertigo /DC Comics) TV show. I am quite excited. Its an AMC thing, so should be decent.c

Why am I not finding people who can tell me whether or not home-made spider repellent works? Even the internet has failed me, noooooo.

Everyone I ask has said "I heard that...". Do a search, a lot of suggestions, very few "I've used this, it works"s.

I decided to take the lady at the Health Food stores' word for it and switched to peppermint oil. Also found this (and OF COURSE the comments are disabled):



Here's hoping I didn't just buy Spider Bait, or [some other creepy crawly I'm likely to also hate] Bait.

EDIT: One of the little shits started skittering across the floor, then paused, so I got up really quick and dropped some peppermint oil right in front of him. Little ****er didn't move for about thirty seconds. I was about to snap a picture and call ****ery when he took off running, so I dipped a finger in the oil and drew an oily/minty circle around him.

He sorta bounced around in it for awhile, though I think that was because he didn't like the feel of it on his little hairy legs... eventually it dried (or whatever, I know if it's proper oil it shouldn't dry but it looked like drying to me) and he made a mad dash for freedom. That particular mad dash ended suddenly on the bottom of a box of Mountain Dew, courtesy of my husband, the Spider Killer. Now our bedroom smells like a candy cane.

tl;dr THIS TELLS ME NOTHING

Edit2: Those jerks apparently taste with their feet, so I guess he didn't like the taste. Maybe. Hopefully that's a win.

Also should probably note that the lady in the video said that she hasn't seen any spiders since she started spraying... so maybe it works, mayyyybe she's just not noticing them. I'm frustrating myself by being skeptical but I CAAAN'T STOP. Anyway, gonna make spider crap now and maybe do a bit of spraying before bed, if I wake up with cockroaches or something I probably won't post again as I'd have shuffled the family out and burned the house down (or gone to sleep. One of those).

Double postingness

WE'RE HOMELESS NOW. Just kidding. The spray... seems to have worked, actually. Could be coincidence but for now I'm going to give it a cautious thumbs-up.

We only sprayed half the room, because we were mostly concerned about avoiding dropspiders and bedmates. The spider count for on the bed was 1 (0 for overnight squashed bastards). the wall behind the bed was 1. The ceiling above the bed was 0. No spiders have fallen out of my hair today. THIS PLEASES ME GREATLY. To provide some contrast, the spider count for the half of the room we didn't spray has remained fairly steady. Spiders for days on that end of the room. 1-2 max on the side near the bed.

The peppermint smell is fairly strong. You definitely notice it when you walk into the room. Strong scents tend to give me headaches, this peppermint smell doesn't however. I found that interesting.

So, yes. Cautiously optimistic that the little shits aren't just rallying the troops somewhere in some dark corner.

So far so good. Sprayed the small ones' room as well, as the spiders started showing up in there once we sprayed in here. It does seem to genuinely be working.

If I caught you killing spiders in my home, I'd just get really mad at you. Unless your particular brand of spiders are venomous or f***huge or something. In which case I'd still probably be kinda mad.

Now, silverfish? Those little shits are gonna meet the heel of my shoe when I see 'em.

Touch wood it's Chromium's hardware acceleration that's the root of the issues I'm currently having, and turning it off in both Chrome and Opera will have the desired effect... don't think it's HDD lag or reliability problems, and RAM/CPU aren't indicating they're overloaded...

Taking it as a good sign that both browsers are much more responsive than they were, although not sure yet how much of that's simply having restarted both.
