Like the title says, What are you currently thinking? Figure I. could start this up to get members chatting, please keep it clean! wink.gif

I'll start this off....

Eating a turkey sandwich again for lunch, anyone want to trade smile.gif

Thinking where do I go in this hobby? Too much "stuff" taking up too much space that I never look at, so do I dump it and take a loss, sell it piecemeal, or what? I still want to collect certain things and keep certain things, but well I am just realizing I have too much, some of which I would like to keep, some which I think I have no attachment to. So what do I do?

?Wha? You trying to turn TCC into Facebook? unsure.gif


@Brian you could start your condensing by handing over all your Capitals, Orioles and Nationals (Wash. Senators) over to me. wink.gif cool.gif

I hate seeing the word "dump" or "trash" associated with trading cards. If they are to be doomed to someplace other than a collectors hands I say bury them in a recycling bin. They are cardboard so then maybe they will be recycled as a McDonald's burger box. laugh.gif

@Brian-Feel the same way sometimes, but figure I might need to build a house with them some day, but really all my stuff will be handed down to my kids

@Kirk- FB? Lol, that would mean we would have over a million member's!

Home bound in a hour, long day at work posting here on TCC

Trying to see into the future to Wend. night to assertain the winning Lotto numbers.

Could you imagine 500 Mill, I'd go the 20 year route to insure a big paycheck every year & to keep the Gov. from getting half right off the bat.

Yep the yearly installments are the way to go. Sure there is still tons of tax on it, but at least it isn't 1/2 right off the bat, and you actually end up getting less if you take the one lump sum. Also 500 Mil spread out over 20 years is a little harder to spend all at once.

Of course with winning the lottery you automatically gain about 50 million cousins and lost relatives you didn't know you had the night before the drawing. biggrin.gif

edgerrin32
WOW. I am thinking of a lot.

Selling off stuff I don't want.

Kids.

Where my next sick Edgerrin edition is going to come from and what it will be.

I might go back to driving a Taxi.

COMC.com sales sounded like a good deal, but I don't think they were and the site messing up, and not being able to send offers on cards that were on sale. Just made me get excited for nothing and then got me mad.

Needed to come up with some money to go on vacation. BAD!! I am wayyyy over due for one, only like 10+ years since I went on one, and im only 27 lol.

Need a new set of wheels.

Wanting the stuff I have listed on ebay to sell.

Want more Legos to sell.

Some personal stuff. Well a lot of personal stuff, not really some!

Christmas coming up and trying to finish that up.

Needed to go out for some drinks for a night but cant. (not a big drinker, just want to go shoot some pool and have a couple).

Got a bunch of projects I need to get done.

Have some things I need to buy (other then cards), but a little strapped on cash. Got money but just not enough to get everything I need.

Sad Jersey Shore is ending!

Wondering what my next big move in life will be. Which way am I going to go.

Family and friends.

Yea a lot.... lol Just trying to knock a thing off my list here and there. But there is so much. It like every time I knock something off my list, 2 more things get up on it. So yea thats what im thinking.

@Jason,
Wow that is a LOT of stuff. Your list reminds me I need to add a bunch of stuff onto Ebay (not just cards). It don't get sold by itself just sitting around in boxes or in a closet.

RE: New set of wheels. I should probably think about that as well. I've got a 2002 Ford Focus and 10 year old cars don't last very much longer. In some ways I'm surprised it has lasted this long.

Yea I still have a bunch more to get put up on there, but it takes a lot of time to list it all. lol

Wheels. Yea our transmission just went out. Ours is a 2003 neon. Junk car to begin with. Plus when we bought it we didn't know but it used to be a delivery car for a local pharmacy! Yea stop and go, on and off all day long. We found out like a year after we had it. rolleyes.gif But this will be the 3rd tranny we put in in about the 6 or so years we have had it. Plus we just got 2 new tires put on it the day before the tranny went out lol. And about a month before that we had to replace the control shift mod thing. So you fix it and something else goes out right after lol. I miss my Lincoln town car. It was a beast, but it ran and I fit in it very comfortable. laugh.gif Im only like 6'4 so my knees are not all jammed in the dash board or anything. blink.gif

Sorry to hear that the OT demons came back. ON the good hand that means extra $$ Right? Or are you on Salary and $OT don't mean jack?
captkirk42
Yesterday and today I got a ton of things yesterday I got a package with a ton of Mascot stuff from some guy who had read my Blogger blogspot blog out of the blue emailed me (about a week ago) and offered to send me some mascot stuff for free asked nothing in return, just cleaning out his Mascot Collection Binder of dupes. Well there were some cards, postcards a couple of 8x10s (or 8x11.5) a paperback kids book some of them signed by the mascot a couple of them personalized to him (David). Mascots of each sport Baseball, Football, Hockey and Basketball some professional some minor league and some College.

Then today I got some of my Ebay and sportlots stuff including a random 70some card lot of Orioles cards from 1980s on up to current.

Do you want to host January for Bill's group? I am not sure what he wants to do, but I think that would be OK. He is going to be real busy with school soon.

I am thinking that I have not been in the hobby for the last 3 or 4 years too much. I have about a drop of interest and wondering if I should use it to see if it dissappears and generates more interest...
