I hate being broke

Well, I’ve been putting it off all month but… my Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 Linux PDA is now on eBay so I can pay this month’s rent. I bought it a few years ago from Staples. The guy that sold it to me was really cute, and he was all like “You know it runs linux, right?” and I’m all like “yeah.”. Of course, Staples no longer sells PDAs, so I wonder what happened to the cute guy that used to be behind the counter. Perhaps he’s unemployed like me.

Anyway, it’s been really fun. Because it runs Linux, there are so many things it could do. Something about knowing I could have a wifi webserver in my pocket was just really cool.

Anyway, I hope someone buys it. eBay charged me $3.50 to list it, which they’ll take from my credit card at an undisclosed time. With my luck, this will be after interest has accrued for the month, pushing me over my limit, and giving me a nice $30 over limit fee. yay. <sarcasm>I bet my credit report is in amazing shape now</sarcasm>
