Jilted Queensland wife auctions love rival's underwear on eBay

ha! this is great! I found this article at: http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,24174475-3102,00.html

A SCORNED Queensland woman is literally airing her husband's dirty laundry on a global scale by auctioning his mistress's knickers on eBay.

In a spiteful listing on eBay Australia, the jilted woman is auctioning off a pair of lacy black underpants "size humongous" and an empty condom wrapper "size small" found in her bed after her husband allegedly engaged in an extramarital affair with a woman named Kylie.

The seller, 'Anna' , says: "They are so huge I thought they may make someone a nice shawl or, even better, something for Halloween perhaps."

The eBay listing, entitled "Empty condom packet & a photo of The Tart's knickers", also comes with a detailed account of the events leading up to her discovery, in which the woman returned from work to find her husband of 22 years watching a DVD and discouraging her from entering their bedroom.

In the room she found the empty condom wrapper under his pillow and "the Tart's knickers . . . at the foot of the bed".

Anna also promises that this listing will not be the last in the matter, stating that her
husband's Harley Hog is "the next item that will probably be sold on eBay at a
start price of 99c and, of course, with no reserve!" Several bidders have already expressed interest in the motorcycle.

The embarrassing eBay listing, which does not name the husband, almost did not make the site though, as it was first taken down due to eBay's policy against selling secondhand underwear, spokeswoman Inessa Jackson said.

"We let her know about the policy and instead she's now selling a photograph of the offending knickers," she said.

"eBay does connect colourful buyers with colourful sellers and I wouldn't be surprised if someone did buy these items, though I couldn't speculate on who would buy them or why. "This is obviously very therapeutic for this woman and it must be a great channel for her views on cheating and the sanctity of marriage."The listing, which has a starting price of just 69 US cents, has no bids but has attracted a few comments of support. More than 2500 have viewed the auction, however, and with five days to go the listing has also been added to eBay Australia's Best of eBay site(http://bestof.ebay.com.au/).

oh holy gayness.

While cleaning up my e-mail inbox, I happen to run across this creative e-mail sent to me by one of my bff's. This e-mail was entitled: REACHING TRANSCENDENT LEVELS!!! beware

Good Morrow:

It I can't get any more metro.. ...I can!!

Sleeping was rather difficult there was way too much anticipation for the new Madonna CD that hits the shelves today.

I awoke this morning 25 minutes earlier then usual, and as I lay in bed contemplated how exactly I can get my hands on a hard copy of "Hard Candy".

Alas I arose rather quickly showered and changed as I got in my car and researched all of the targets in the metro area on the way to Burnsville!

The time is 7:47 AM as I arrive at Target Penn Ave and 494. I nervously approach the entrance only to my dismay realize that Target opens at 8:00 AM. I will have to say that those 13 Minutes have been the longest 13 minutes of my life. Every 30 seconds I glanced at my phone wondering why 13 minutes felt like an eternity.

7:53 AM Many cars are starting to fill the Target parking lot, and I'm seeing a lot
of people just lounging in their vehicles. My concern is rising that somehow every "Mo" in Minneapolis is going to savagely run towards the door and attack the Music/Electronic section.

7.57 AM Rest assured, I'm at the bloody door just looking at the manager looking at me. I know what she's thinking! The Bi*ch! She's secretly laughing at me... she holds the key in her hand that will let me enter, and with 3 minutes to spare she's knows I'm counting down the minutes. Holy 6 pounds and three ounces of baby Jesus.. you think there might be some law out there stating that they can't open the door for a customer 3 minutes early even while there is a group of clients outside. ( I never knew Target was such a hoot at 7:50 AM!)

8:00 AM I'm the 1st one in and the It felt like the three red necks behind me were running towards Madonna as well. I was seriously prepared to tackle some hick. Turns out.. I guess I was really the only Mo in Bloomington, MN really going for the CD. There was a thug that passed by me which noticed my haste. When he finally saw me reach towards my objective I think he glared at me after seeing what I was going for. No doubt in my mind he knew I was fruitful.

8:05 I checked out and used my wonderful birthday target gift card, and realized I HAD 3.37 CENTS TO SPARE! So of course I made my way to the Starbucks and picked myself up a Low fat Iced Mocha. What the hay I mean I've already maxed out on an outstanding level of MO.

8:15 I brought my laptop to work, uploaded the music and downloaded it to my IPOD! I'm content and jaming out to what I think might be another great album by Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, and Danja.

Don't mess with me when I'm reaching ultimate, maximum, transcendent, unsurpassable and utmost levels of nellyness.

Taste my rainbow!


RE: hey

Fairly recently, I received a message from a someone you may be familiar with. This guy (whose name I will not mention) plays in the NBA for the Bulls. I actually know of a few chicks that have hung-out / dated him. In the conversation (below) we have had (via myspace e-mail) he states that we do not know each other - but I know much more about him than he realizes. I have no interest in dating him or getting to know him better, but am willing to discover why he initially sent me an e-mail message and what his goal may be.

Him: hello beautiful, how are you?
Me: i'm great. how are you?
Him: im good. we dont really know each other so i thought i would say hi and get to know each other better. if thats ok with you? how you like it n minnesota
Me: sure... minnesota is OK, but i'm a chicago girl at heart... i'm in the city this weekend. i travel often so i'm not in minnesota much. :) but it's COLD there
Him: lol it is cold in minnesota,, damn i wish i was in the city this weekend we coulda chilled. im in london right now, will be back to chicago on the 25th... when are you coming back to chicago? do u go a lot
Me: Well if you WERE in the city I doubt we would have gotten together, as my hands are tied with others. I do come back to Chicago often, quite ofter for work. I will be back in Oct, again my hands will be tied. Enjoy london!

Golden Birthday

Last night, while amongst many of my closest friends - everyone dressed to the nines, we celebrated my golden birthday (early).

The party began at my place. I prepared a variety of appetizers that we indulged as we sipped on Merlots & Chardonnays, Cabernets & Sauvignon Blanc.. including: Hummus & Tabouleh, Black Bean Dip, Exotic fruit strips rolled in Nori drizzled with a Fig Coco Sauce, Exotic Chocolates, Marcona Almonds, Cheese (gouda, white cheddar, & buun-usoto baked jalapeno), Grapes, & Crackers. We bopped our heads to the tunes of: Fergie, Guru, M.I.A, Madonna, & Amanda Lepore .

Later that evening we headed to the Thunderball Event happening at a warehouse in N.E. Minneapolis. The party was (obviously) James Bond themed, and featured 3 local bands, photo opps w/ a photographer, Martini's, and models. We were all dressed appropriately - the men in 3 piece suits, and women in revealing little black dresses. We instantly scattered as we entered the venue and mingled with the rest of the crowd.

As the evening progressed we decided it was time to head dowtown to the new W Hotel location and enjoy a few cocktails in their 27th floor bar area. Again, dressed appropriatly for the venue, we mingled with the downtown crowd and eventually settled in a room of our own to finish off the evening with a few delightful cocktails and stimulating conversation.

interesting. . .

"...........using the word "interesting" allows you to keep your distance, play around with ideas and concepts in your mind, agree or disagree........" eckhart tolle

While in Chicago this past week, I attended a diversity training required by the company I work for. During this diversity training, we were broken off in to groups and given mock situations to discuss - about how we would handle the situation if faced with it while involved in a work activity.

One of the mock situations we discussed involved us being at an event/hair show. One of our best clients (who we like and trust, and who likes and trusts us) mentions he went to see the play Rent, and expressed that he thought the gay people in the show were "disgusting."

To me, this seemed an easy situation. I would simply respond be saying "Hm. Interesting." Using the word "interesting" allows you to respond while keeping a distance from the comment/opinion made.

Apparently, I had the WRONG answer. According to the leaders of the diversity training, I should have asked the guy to not say things like that while in the presence of me or my company - because that does not match the culture of our company. Understandable. BUT the trainers of the diversity program wanted to hear from me and the rest of our group that a comment being made about gay people would offend me! Also, (speaking to a group of all women) they (diversity trainers) found it hard to believe that any person in that room would NOT be offended if someone made a snide remark about women. I would not have even been even slightly offended - and I have more gay friends than I do pairs of underwear! (I don't even think the boys would be offended by such a comment!!)

I can understand that most people would get offended when opinions such as these (even if they are not linked in any way, shape, or form to that opinion) are made.
Myself on the other hand can and will accept that everyone has an opinion and not everyone's opinion is the same as mine. If someone has the opinion that I am ugly, or dumb, or eat weird, or whatever, that does not affect me in any way. I am comfortable with who I am and what my beliefs and opinions are - so why allow another person's opinion to have an affect on me - let alone offend me??

Here is what I have to say to the company that facilitates diversity training. Some people (believe it or not) have become comfortable living in their own skin and facing any situation that the present moment may bring. There have been a variety of situations happen throughout my 26 years that have conditioned my comfort level of living in own skin, just being me, and living in the present (what happened in the past is so 2 seconds ago and i have yet to face the future.) While focusing on keeping my ego in check (thanks to Ekhart Tolle) I have learned to not allow my ego to be affected by other peoples ignorance. I have also let go of any ignorance that may have lived within my own ego. The statement "i'm offended" implies volition. Most people allow themselves to be at the mercy of that thought or statement and allow themselves to become this very thought - they ARE offended. MY thinking is slightly different - I may think "Wow he just said an offensive statement" -but I do not allow myself to become that. I just continue being me.

It is interesting that in a culture as diverse as ours is, how many people still do not accept an opinion for what it is and allow themselves to be affected by such uncertainty.

opinion: a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.

Bikshu Sangharakshita, author of Essence of Zen, offers advice on how to transcend potentially limiting projections:
“Try to discover what it is you most dislike in others, what you most often criticize and condemn them for. A little elementary self-analysis may reveal that those qualities are hidden in the depths of your own mind and that in criticizing others in this way you are, in fact, unconsciously criticizing yourself.”

have you ever googled yourself?

I was interviewed, and published. Check out this link:

Springy styles: matte or metallic
Here's what to look for in spring and summer hairstyles this year, one style maven says:

Matte finishes
Metallic colors
Volume around the sides of the head
The return of the ponytail

That's the report from Crista Lash, a Redken artistic educator in Minneapolis, Minn. She details trends for the seasons ahead:

Matte finishes. "We're seeing more matte trends on the runway, as opposed to brilliant, shiny hairdos, " Lash said. "A roughed-up texture . . . lived-in looks with second-day sexiness." Not for women only, either: "With men, it's chunky separation, oversized pieces and a matte finish."

Metallic colors. Mirroring the appearance of trendy fashion accessories, Redken's edgy Metallic Glam color line adds silvery highlights. Not shiny, though: "Like a
metallic fabric, there's a sheen or a shimmery reflection," Lash said.

Volume. "Volume is definitely huge this spring and summer," Lash said. "Instead of adding height up front, hair is lifted at the nape and crown and teased at the sides."

Ponytails. They're back, Lash said. Some are sleek, while others are less structured – "as if you had pulled your hair back very simply, messy and loose like a young girl who has played outside all day."

Puppy Lullaby

So... my lil pooch was going to be neutered this year until I was begged and pleaded (ok, just asked nicely - ok I was super excited!!) to use him as a stud! My boy is going to be a daddy! (hopefully)! SO now I think I need another puppy... yikes! --but they are so cuuuuuuuute!

My dog sitter shared a video where this guy is actually singing a few puppies to sleep. cuuuute! - A must see!

What is she doing wrong?

As I was going through my e-mail box, I came across an e-mail a friend sent to me. This is an article actually pulled from Craigslist. (not by me) where a female is looking to marry a man whom makes more then 500k. The gentlemans response is truly phenom. This is too good of a read not to share. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

"What am I doing wrong? Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I'm articulate and classy. I'm not from New York. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think I'm overreaching at all. Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around 200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won't get me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she's not as pretty as I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I get to her level? Here are my questions specifically: Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars, restaurants, gyms What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my feelings -Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)? - Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east side so plain? I've seen really 'plain jane' boring types who have nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What's the story there? - Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out? - How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for MARRIAGE ONLY Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a nice home and hearth. it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests PostingID: 432279810 "

"Dear Pers-431649184: I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament. Firstly, I'm not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here's how I see it. Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a crappy business deal. Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring my money. Fine, simple. But here's the rub, your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact, it is very likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't be getting any more beautiful! So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you! So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case you think I'm being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage. Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So, I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful" as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K hasn't found you, if not only for a tryout. By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation. With all that said, I must say you're going about it the right way. Classic "pump and dump." I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of lease, let me know. "

Superhero Trading Cards#54763

Name: Wonder Legs (also known as the Stiletto Siren or Heeled Avenger).

Alter Ego: Suzy Olsen, mild-mannered account executive.

Abilities: Hails speeding cabs, dances until dawn, and purges the streets of crime — all while wearing three-inch heels.

Known Associates: She-Ra, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Christian Louboutin.

Personal Kryptonite: Late summer downpours, April showers, puddles.

Secret Weapon: Shuella, an ingenious take on the rubber rain boot designed by a team of ex-CIA operatives.

Rick Robertson, the young cobbler to whom she entrusts her soles and her soul.

..I have never been so excited to see a few pieces of rubber delivered on my doorstep!.. (although I have gotten a lot of attention from my purse made from a recycled (rubber) tire...)
