I've been a fan of ebay for a while, but mostly just as a quick place to find something hard-to-find. But now that I have a job (steady income, whoohoo!), I've set up a paypal account with my bank account (no credit cards yet). Using your bank account with paypal is dreadfully slow (when you deposit money from your bank account into your paypal account, it takes up to 10 days to process). But I'm going nuts on ebay now with my new paypal account; I'm buying so many old childhood movie favorites! Spirit (the horse movie), Princess & the Goblin, Great Mouse Detective, Aladdin, Three Lives of Thomasina (whoohoo!), Peter Pan, and A Bug's Life (total Dave Foley fan here). Plus, today I bought a few things for my sister's birthday (spent more money than I want to remember... lol), which were the first season of I Love Lucy, a Lucy doll, and a simple I *heart* Napoleon wrist cuff thing (she's a big fan of Napoleon Dynamite, lol). The third one should arrive just in time for her birthday, so it'll tide her over until the other things arrive probably a few days later.
My parents bought new leather couches recently, and they're so terrified of the cats scratching them that they've willing offered to buy a cat tree to divert their attention. I've found one that I really want, for half the price that I estimated a tree would cost, and now the thrill starts on whether or not I'll win it. lol, ebay is fun! (but oh so addicting!)
