harumph. Had our biggest day so far this year at the bakery on Saturday; I couldn't drag myself out of bed for the D's. (But I did get the B1 and the G's. :) )

No, I don't use autosnipe software. Just an olde-fashioned fuddyduddy I guess.

The color on that B1 looked to be an interesting shade at first, but that's probably just the camera. I still haven't double-checked for printing variations amongst these GWs, however... :?

Busy ahead of July 4th for some reason?

Sniping doesn't help much, either. :P

Deimos had a pretty rough run there, too. Beaten by 1 penny and 2 pence on the D3 & D2.

Might be some time before another nice set like that comes up again: usually about one per year. 'grats on the Gs, though. :)

Our summer biz started kicking in about 3 weeks ago, ramping up to this weekend. We've now hit the high plateau (about 10-15% ahead of last year's sales) and will stay there until the second week of August, when the Chicago-area schools start pre-season work or even resume classes. Two weeks of lull (i.e. mid-June level) and then a finall hurrah for Labor Day (beginning of September), and then iit's back down to May/June levels until early October when the leaves (colors) fall.

Life in a summer resort area 'up north'. We all try to make 6 months of profits in 3 months, to cover the slow winter (Jan thru Mar). Many businesses close by mid-October and don't reopen until May. But we're open 7 days a week all year long (minus 4: New Year's, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), very popular all the time. We trim back to 12-14 employees for the slow times, 20+ for summer.

I useta be a freewheeling hippie degenerate radical. Now I'm a businessman with Responsibilities and shareholders. ::sigh::

Yep, that stung!  There's always someone out there willing to push the envelope a little bit more...  :roll:

Oh, My!   I've got a couple of years on her and I think my Dad would STILL throw a blanket over me and carry me home if I wore that in public, and I wouldn't even be a business liablity by doing it.  :oops:  :oops:

If she used that picture on her eBay AboutMe page, no one would gripe about excessive handling fees . . . (insert rimshot)

I think that's very unfair, all by herself.

Compare these contenders from 4 different game conventions, and judge for yourself.

Frank, why do you have these particular images handy . . . ?   :wink:

I'm on dial-up, and I hope they finish loading before my wife comes back from the store . . .

#1 and #2 are sweet. #3 and Bupu are drunken Saturday nighters. I still maintain she has a decent set of fun bags though.

Wow, #4 looks a lot like ...

... you know what? Nevermind. I'm not going down that road again.

Also, for many, many shots of random gamers (including some females) in awkward, strange, puzzling, and basically random poses, be sure to check Boardgame Geek. Just pick some games and click "browse images."

I was practising tying bandanas on cougs this time a few years back: dun think chainmail bikinis would've suited or been comfortable for the felines, I'm afraid.

Oh, that "Coug"...? :lol:

It took some nerve to wear that to a convention.  Gotta respect that.  Go, ladies!

Don't you love it when noob stop by and tell everyone that they don't know what they are doing and then leave.  I especially love it when the stuff they sold was somewhere between 7 and 12 months ago and to top it off the post is condescending to boot, "For those who know how to use a computer".  :roll:   Well gee asshole, its an internet forum, I am pretty sure I know hoe to use a computer.  :roll:   The worst part of it is I actually bought some of that guys stuff and he is actually wrong on several accounts. :?  He had a few items go high, but thats it.  What a moron. :roll:
