I'm Not Dead Yet!

Hats off to any Monty Python fans out there who caught the reference (oh, like anyone could have missed it?)

Alas, I am not off on any sort of funky ho-down, despite the wild imaginings of Loki's Concubine, merely undergoing an explosion of workness while battling galloping depression. And of course there's assorted bullshit to do with moving house. I've been assured that we're going to be approved for the new place that we want but in the meantime nobody's said anything official and aaaaAAAAAaaaaHHHH!


OK, I'm all better now. I just get worked up 'cause a) the new place would save us $400 a month, b) I'm the one who has to do all of the packing, cleaning, finding of money to buy into the co-op and then the actual moving and c) I'm a hysterical ass.

It would seem that my claim of needing $1600 last month wasn't far off. I gotta find $1500 to buy into this co-op. It's worth it -- we'll save that in rent in less than four months.

Anyhow, if anyone wants to buy one of Ben's kidneys, it's yours for three grand. (To any law-enforcement type people reading this, this is a JOKE, lighten the fuck up already).

I'm at work now, knitting and blogging and otherwise putting in my 8 hours while making the world safe for democracy and stuff. Should have some FOs to show off when I get home tonight.

Warning: If you don't like orange, don't look. I think that's the only yarn I brought apart from variegated cotton and really, nobody needs to see another dishcloth, do they?

Till later, kiddies.

Can you sell kidneys on e-bay?
You guys are sick!

And no, you can't sell kidneys on eBay. Believe it or not, it's been tried, but it's illegal to sell organs.

I know I know!!! What if you sell the TIME it takes to cut out the kidney instead of the organ itself. Hey they sell coupons and shit like that on ebay all the time. Always a loophole. ;-)
Your pricing is way too low. Going rate for kidneys on the black market is somewhere between $15,000 and $30,000. The problem is see, I might need one someday soon on account of how much I drink, but I don't know if it will keep well in a tupperware in my freezer until that day comes, otherwise I'd jump on that deal.
Oh man, I'd forgotten about the drinking. I was letting him keep his liver until I needed a new one but I never thought of the kidneys!

OK, we'll let him keep them until one of us needs one. And if we both need one at the same time, oh well, his loss. Literally.
