back to odd things. I've been taking these green lipped mussel with tumeric (sounds like a disgusting recipe) herbal capsules in the evenings to help out with muscle soreness from exercising. They tend to support more dreams than I'm used to, get a few strange ones.

Anyway, this morning I woke up at 4:30 for some reason wide awake and remembered I forgot to put the bin out for collection. Since they normally come at 5:30 I got up, took the bin out and went back to bed.

Shortly after I was getting some water from the fridge and the door wouldn't close. I hit it with the shoulder but it had somehow iced up preventing the door closing. I was about to get cranky when I suddenly realised, "Hang on, that fridge hasn't been there for years, I bought a different one ages ago. WTF is going on"

Then I woke up back in bed. But I had been up and put the bin out.

Sorry to tell you Stui, but this is still a dream and you didn't actually put the bin out. Crying or Very sad

Laughing No I checked when I did get up. Wink

Unless, I'm still asleep and just dreaming all of this. Shocked

That would mean instead of the work day being almost finished, it isn't started yet. Mad Crying or Very sad

Imagine if we woke up and realised that this bulletin board was just a dream – all those tens of thousands of posts for nothing. Laughing (of course, some may say the reality isn't all that different …)

Hah, this is another one of those realisations.

I check stuff out in the Facebook Marketplace, there's a Buy, Swap and Sell for my suburb that I keep an eye on.

What struck me as odd was some of the stuff that people are selling for cheap prices.

2nd hand pair of tradie work pants, almost new, $15.
Leather wallet, $12
Used jogging sports bra top, $12

This is not a wealthy area but I'd be surprised if there were many people to whom $15 would make a big difference to their life. That's like doing a garage sale, but online, with only 2 or 3 items.

Maybe that's just why I'll never be wealthy, I'm not that tight.

If I have surplus clothes, the idea of advertising online, having people contact wanting to haggle, then having to invite people to your home all for $15 just doesn't work at all. I just take shit to the Op shop. Savers, Salvos.

I do see some good stuff on there and you often see free stuff, people are happy to get someone to just come and take stuff so they don't have to pay to get it carted away. I get that, I get selling stuff that's actually worth money, but going through all the crap for the price of bottle of rough Red?

A bottle of rough red in Thailand or Indonesia will cost you a minimum of 30 bucks. They have flrdling crap winemaking ventures (probably owned by an ex General) so they put a mega tax on imported wine. A rum costs as low as 25 baht a shot here but a small glass of cheap South African blended red costs 150 baht. Bali is the same . all done to protect some small vineyard in the provinces. So tourist won't pay the massive price and the loser is the restaurant. I stick to drinking wine on the plane where Singapore airlines serve french wines. They stopped selling Australian wines at the Changi sirport because of the cigarette allowamce being reduced to 50 smokes.

I fully agree with you Stui. Some of the stuff I’ve seen advertised on local pages is mind boggling, what is the point? A few people often advertising used toys as well. Just donate them.
