Some Other Midnight's Summer Dream?

January 25th, 2008 at 06:45 pm

Taking the $4 I got yesterday for selling books and adding it to the challenge. Also there are 3 cents here from the laundry fairy.

No. Not the ass in the picture. Isn't that from Shakespeare or some other midnight Summer's dream? Yes, it's been tooooooo many years since English Lit.


$027.87 balance
+004.03 books/laundry fairy
$031.90 Jan MTD

2008 Challenge Total $31.90
Cumulative Challenge Total $560.51

Nobody claimed the pennies as theirs so, yeah, Anywhooooo...

Yesterday was a No Spend Day. Today looking like it will shape up similarly. Got to love those Back To Backs!! It's cold, Cold, COLD here today and I'm trying to stay inside. Have to run FrugalSon to work in a bit, but other than that I'm going to stay inside and toasty!

Posted a collectible book on Amazon yesterday for sale - I paid 50 cents for it at a garage sale last summer, just never got around to getting it posted for sale. Going list price for this rare badboy is in the $33ish range.

Also took pictures of my $5 to AT LEAST $125 if not more project and I'm still trying to decide where to sell it.

Any Shakespearean's here want to straighten me out?

Am I dreaming or was there a Prospero somewhere in Shakespeare land???

    Love your blog photos, Mme. Scorpiana. Yes, that's Tatiana the Queen of the Fairies with her troop along with a couple of "fools that mere mortals be" in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights' Dream.

    Wish it were midsummer eve here instead of the deep, deep dark of winter! But spring is a-comin' soon.

    Prospero is a magician and the ruler of the island that serves as the setting for Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

    davera beat me to it. I can't believe I still remember all this Shakespeare stuff from one semester in college.

    The guy who has the donkey head on is named Bottom. We called him Donkey Bottom. His buddy Puck is the one who put it on him.

    Yep, you have great blog images! I like looking for weird stuff. It's a good way to pass the time, huh?

    It's cold here, too, and quite possibly will sneet soon! I hope not but it might. I have to head to work soon and really don't like driving in the wet and cold. Brrrr, but oh well.

    Good job on the bookselling and pennies. Me likes pennies!

    Prospero is from Shakespeare's "The Tempest."

    Hey, I can finally leave feedback. I have had trouble with your images sometimes, it freezes up my computer and keeps bouncing an "Activ X" command at me. Anywho, this photo did not, so I love it!
    Three whopping cents hunh? I always hope the laundry fairy leaves me a little more than that!
    Good luck on your sales!
