Money talk bores Tux. And, sorry, not selling the cat.
So, in an effort to help fund some things I want to do and help take a bit of financial pressure off of HUBS, I've got some stuff I'm purging in order to make a bit of cash.
First off, I'm selling movies, TV on DVD collections, bellydance and yoga fitness VHS tapes, books and video games here at half.com. The movies are only $1 to $1.50! I'm selling season 1 & 2 of Angel, seasons 1, 3 & 4 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and editions of the graphic novel continuations of both shows (among other things)...For some pretty good-ass prices if I do say so myself!
I'm also doing the ebay thing. I'm selling a cool pair of UNWORN sandals, lightly used Martha Stewart with Wedgwood bone china and 2010 Mazda 3 floor mats. Yay!
Now, here's where the big stuff comes in. I've tried selling magazines on ebay before and have never gotten any hits, so I'm eliminating the middle-man here and going directly to the source...You guys!
I'm selling my Glamour magazines. For 2009 I have April, May and July through December. For 2010 I have January through April.
I'm sending my People StyleWatch mags to a better home, too. The issues are May 2009 through December 09/January 2010 (June/July and Dec/Jan are combined issues).
If you love InStyle, I can help you out! I've got the June 09, July 09, September 09 and special Fall 2009 makeover issues available. I also have three UK editions of the magazine, which retail in the US for $8.50 (yes, I'm a bit embarrassed I spent that much on a magazine). The UK editions are May 09, July 09 and March 10.
Home design fans can have my back issues of Elle Decor from April 09 through March 10.
If you need a mixed bag, how about this: Harper's Bazaar (April and June through October 09), Marie Claire (October and November 09), Elle (June 09) and Cosmo (October 09).
If photography's your thing, I've got a fine collection of American Photo magazine, May 09 through February 10.
Now, for the details. All magazine are $1! I'd prefer to sell them by title as listed above, but if you buy at least five issues I'll be willing to split them up. If you buy a huge stack, they'll be shipped in a flat rate Priority Mail box. Priority shipping costs (which you pay) will range from $4.95 to $14.50, but you'd basically have to buy all the magazines I've listed for me to need a box that big! Shipping for a small magazine order, let say five to eight titles, will be $8. All payments will be via Paypal.
If none of that sounds like it's up your spending alley, I also have a gorgeous photo blog where you can buy prints of any photos you see there. Go here and look at the side bar for details.
Phew! Now, go forth and email all your fashion fiend, bellydancing, Angel and Buffy loving friends. Tell everyone you know! Help me let the masses know that the Sale. Is. ON!

How in the hell did we get to fucking June already? I swear, the older I get the more it's like time has no meaning whatsoever.
Remember how, when you were a little kid, it seemed like the school year would neeeever eeeeeeeend? And then, during your freshman year of high school (after you realized there was just going to be more of the same clique-y bullshit as in junior high) you felt like graduation was decades away? Then, before you knew it you'd already graduated from college, gotten your first real job, quit that one, gotten another, moved a lot and now here we are at 35 with only a few months left to 36 and 40 staring us down fast and furious?
Well, I have to say, though, I'm already looking forward to fall. Oh yeah...
