A New Year

Not really much to report. I’ve enjoyed bummin’ around and having days off in the middle of the week for the past two weeks. Next day off: Monday, January 19 for MLK Jr. Day.

I’ve been working on building a website for selling my soy candles. I’d considered doing the PayPal Shopping Cart thing, but I don’t think that would work out so good, since I’ll have to confirm with the customers that I do still have the container in stock, yadda yadda. I’ll probably just end up asking how they intend to pay: check, money order, or PayPal—then invoicing them via e-mail or through PayPal. My Aunt Sammie has already said that she may put me on her business website under the “We Highly Recommend” section, which might actually get me a decent amount of business.

Have you seen the Shrek 2 trailer? I thought it would be stupid, but it actually looks really
funny. We’re gonna have to go see that when it comes out in May.

Aaron compiled both of our bootleg collections into one giant database at eTree.org.
He still has to transfer our good stuff from cassette to CDR and add them to the list, but we’ve got a pretty good collection just on CDR.

But, yeah. Other than that, not much has been going on. I made my New Year’s Resolution to pay down my credit card debt and maintain a balance of 25% of the limit. (I’m at probably 95% of the limit regularly.) I also made some more minor resolutions to take better care of my teeth and to exercise more, but I won’t beat myself up if I slip on those once in a while.

And that’s about it for now. Have a happy new year, all.
