Day 30 - The Ebay pile

30 January 2011 - We are trying to declutter by selling stuff on ebay. Sometimes it works really well (my iPod sold for an insane amount) sometimes not so well (the books aren't selling). Only problem, most money is received via PayPal, so we are limited to spending on the internet, which is a dangerous thing.

Day 29- Waiting in line

29 January 2011- Waiting in line to pay at the bookfest. The queues were about 1/2 hour to 45 minute waits. At least you had the chance to browse while waiting though. Bookfest always provides a window on past reading trends- tones of John Grishams and Dan Browns. The children's section used to have many copies of Five Little Peppers and Pollyannas, but no Harry Potters. Harry Potter is creeping in, but you are still more likely to find Enid Blyton and the Babysitter club.

Day 26 - The referee

26 January 2011 - I am pretty sure that I have shown the kendo people previously, in my other 365, but I glanced at this and was struck by how it resembles a staged fight, with a referee.

Day 25 - I'm Bored

25 January 2011 - While at the Post Office, waiting for Greg to get to the front of the line, I entertained myself with these little erasers. The Post Offices have turned themselves into shops, and it is interesting to see the trends they pick up. 5 yearsw ago there were very few consumer stationery stores- you could go to an office supply place for funcitonal, or a department store for the small selection they offered. Then a few trendy spots started (Kikki k, SMiggle, Typo) and then suddenly, cute stationery is everywhere.
