11:30 pm - ebayer strikes back creatively...


First hint: Never sell a laptop without wiping your hard drive first.

And secondly, never ever forget to do this if you plan on scamming someone:

This could happen to you!

To 'do an Amir'
To con money out of someone, lie or be otherwise dishonest, only to face ritual humiliation on a worldwide scale.

neverever go to a funeral/memorial service/whathave you when you're PMS-ing. you end up crying and making an utter, miserably mess of yourself and your mascara, and for what? what? not because so much of the person you're there honoring, but because you're crying out of self-pity.

12:15 am - Watch out for this scam on Monster.com


If you are looking for jobs on Monster.com - there is a company that you should really look out for.

One Source Talent or Industry Magazine (They are sister companies.)

I worked for them for a few months this summer. They lured me in on Monster, with promises of having my photography published. They promised us reimbursement for our expenses... medical insurance reimbursement.... cell phone allowances... and so much money that we could roll around in it.

They gave us a week of sales training and then sent us out into the world to collect money from small businesses for advertising - they called them "marketing partnerships."

In the end... I never got the commissions promised, nor did I ever get reimbursed for anything. And there never was a magazine... the company took thousands of dollars from the companies and then the boss packed up his things and disappeared owing his customers a magazine that he never printed and lots of money to all of his employees.

Here is a list of other websites that talk about how this company is a scam. It has happened to a lot of other people in a lot of other states. And the company keeps changing names.

So please, don't be fooled by them. Comment in my journal if you know anything else about this or if you have any more questions.

never flash a cop. just don't do it. for 3 seconds as your shirt is raised high over your head, you feel something akin to sublime anarchy, but when he turns on his lights and pulls a hard right into the parking lot next to you, there's nothing left to do but flee across the street in terror of being identified.

current mood: cheerful

never-ever go for a 6 mile hike leaving your water bottle in the car.
it makes for very thirsty, very lightheaded hikers. and trust me, mirages are possible--even on back woods trails.

current mood: sore

2:05 pm - OUCH!

Ok, never ever walk out of your house barefoot and walk just a little bit on the heated concrete of your street...dang..I already knew it would be hot...not like I have never done it before..and this includes anyone, not just those who live in FL. I seriously had to start running and get in the grass to find some relief..my feet feel burned!!!

NEVER EVER plan a trip to SUNNY HOT FL when your air coditioner in your car decides to stop working and you have to have the window rolled down the entire way so you don't die, but you also have to have the hot outside air blowing in from the vents to try to cool you off when it probably really isn't doing anything but putting you to sleep. Sleep is not a good thing if you are driving and already overly exhausted! Never plan the trip if you don't want a funky sunburn on the left side of your body.

current mood: bored

8:11 pm - no pain, no...pain

Never never ever...
do a cannon ball into a hot tub. no matter how drunk/sober you are...no matter how funny you think it would be...no matter how good of a swimmer/lifeguard/water baby you are, it will *hurt*

and, in my case, will cause disc rupture and potential surgery to L3 through S2. goddamnit my back hurts.


current mood: sore (in the pain way, not mad like the icon designates)

cobain_x_mortis never ever smoke half a pack of cigarettes then go in to a room and attempt to rave dance to very loud techno music for more than fifteen minues without collapsing.

Never ever advertise your community in this one. I said in the first post I would not stoop to that and I won't allow it here. There are communities made specifically for the purpose of annoucing a new community.

NEVER try to enthusiastically belt out Janis Joplin tunes in your car while still recovering from the flu and a sore throat.

You may think its good for the soul, and that, finally, you can match the texture and pitch of her raspy voice, but really you're just going to make your throat sore and miserable for the rest of the day.

current mood: sick

1:53 pm - Oh, dear..

Never.. ever... NEVER! mistake gel-type superglue for Ambisol. (the tooth stuff that makes teeth stop hurting..)

Let it be known that Working on a Car's Gas Tank While Smoking is a BAD idea...

Most important: Never pass out drunk in an irish pub next to a hair salon. The results are usually poor.

NEVER (and i do mean NEVER)
use any Nair-type product to defoliate
your bikini area.


either it won't work and you'll end up looking like you've got a bad case of mange, or you'll end up with a very uncomfortable and embarrassing set of chemical burns.

sort of related:
NEVER shoot Jagermeister at a party that features flaming paraffin voodoo candles.
trust me on this one.

current mood: embarrassed

If you go for dim sum, NEVER take from the first few carts.

There's always better stuff coming up and you don't want to fill up
too quickly. Sit back and survey it out.

Never go back to a bad restaurant thinking that it might be better the second time around.

Trust your instincts. The food sucks and you still won't be happy.
