More eBay madness. Today I "won" a Roomba vacuum and a Tilia food vacuum. The only other thing I'm currently bidding on (and at this point sort of hoping not to "win") is a Dyson floor vacuum. Vac, vac, vac. I suck at eBay! Ha ha ha ha! It's a joke, see!Actually, I got the food vac for $81 when the alleged retail price id $200. I can live with that. Why do I need a food vac? Quite frankly, I have a fair amount of silver things that I inherited and I intend to polish them and vacuum pack them until I need to use something. So there! And, I guess, I can pack meals out of my Costco purchases. Or fill the empty hours by putting marshmallows in mason jars and watching them expand to the bursting point as the air pressure is reduced around them. Fun!
The Roomba (red! sexAY!) also lists for $200 and I got it for $125. Beggars bidding against me bid it up. I like the idea of letting the thing loose on my house while I do other things. Both items are listed by the seller as being new in box. I'm not sure I'd buy otherwise.
I also finally got the "full spectrum" desk light I'd ordered a while back. I'll put it to the test tonight but so far it looks like a winner. There is a flood of light on my desk.
