first ebay item every sold

September 28, 2006

just some trivia for ya…

What was the first thing ever sold on eBay?

In late ’95, Pierre made history when he sold eBay’s first item — a broken laser pointer he had originally bought as a cat toy.

true. new yorkers.

September 2, 2006

this gmail rss link i stumbled on has new yorkers down to a pat.  how many times have i grown irritated trying to long stride past a group casually walking 4 abreast.  or the annoyance of having to shoulder twist to avoid bumping a group gathered outside after leaving a restaurant or show only to block the sidewalk.

Fodor’s Travel Wire | New York City Survival Guide

New Yorkers have a reputation for being rude, but locals are really friendly as long as you don’t get in their way. The best way to experience the fabled rude New Yorker in action is to cause a delay. So decide what you want before you get to the front of the line, don’t dither around the ATM, don’t stop smack in the middle of the sidewalk to check your map, and don’t saunter along slowly six abreast. If you need directions, move to the nearest street corner and wait for the light to turn red, and then ask someone for help while they’re waiting to cross the street.

so i didnt get the job at google. yeah- i was disappointed and i could argue some inconsistencies in the process but in the end it makes no difference.

when i got the news today i was a lil’ upset and maybe even “offended,” but upon reflecting on it i realized my frustrations were not about the job itself, but rather some financial escapes i hoped to find in the job. to explain- my financial situation has gotten heavy recently. while it shoulda been stressing me out, i was relatively unconcerned as i had expectations of soon being back on the full-time work force. the skew from this expectation and the fact my financial situation became much more of a reality is what really roused my emotions. but i’m okay with it…

i’m glad i didnt get the job. two great things have come from *not* getting it. big things. important things. 1) i’ve come to realize the depths of my relationship with my girlfriend. we’ve had a bumpy path to where we are and many of the situations have caused some doubts to accummalate. this “bad luck” was a path to dissipate those doubts. my girlfriend was extremely supportive and positive during the interview process- but was even more supportive, nuturing, and caring when i gave her the bad news. i admit, i had hesitations in telling her, but her true beautiful self showed brightly in the situation. i love her so much. she’s a keeper.

and what else? instead of looking for a path to escape my financial burdons i instead decided to pull myself up by my own boot straps. while the escape route to the full-time job would’ve worked it really woudnt have taught me anything. i’m gaining something much more valuable by digging myself out on my own. i coulda wollowed in the hardships to come, but i chose to take responsibility and make things better.

i’m sadded by not being entitled the opportunity to work at what appeared to be a good place, but i’ve gained things so much more valuable to my life.

wrap around.

March 8, 2006

today, aside from being my first blog post, is a wrap around day (not to be confused with the “reach around”), or phase shift day,. what better way to wayne my extended day than start a blog?

despite being a netizen since pre-internet 0.2 (credits: afresh) i have to admit i’ve had minimal interest in writing a blog. maybe the phase shift i’m experiencing has also shifted my perspectives and desires? i have to confess a weird sense of pride in defying my body of sleep. my ego has a mild scent of superiority from defying my body of its basic necessities. nearly 36 waking hours, but soon i’ll grant my body sleep and permit myself to resync with the quotidian physics obligating our globe to its tedium of revolutions.

the desire for sleep feels strong in me- yet well supressed. i’ve nurished myself with one last meal to carry me through my last wrapping hours. a mickie-d’s #3. q-pounder w/ cheese, fries, and a refreshing orange lavaburst hi-c. twas a good day.
