YSaC, Vol. 656: The armoire is a gas guzzler, though.

Hide a bed – $75


I have a nice little hide a bed couch if you are interested give me a call. $75 OBO

xxx-xxx-xxxx xxx -xxx-xxxx

On the one hand, it provides convenient storage for snacks and beer while watching TV. On the other, I wouldn’t want to sit in the middle; it looks like it’s sunken in a bit. And the bed portion looks a little small, although it looks like it comes with its own electric blanket.

Let’s keep trying. Maybe I don’t need a couch after all … I think I’m up for something a little bit more exciting. I want to feel the wind in my hair and the bugs on my face! I know, I want a scooter!

Scooter, 2007 150cc – $1500


2007 Diamo Retro Scooter.
280 miles
90 miles per gallon
Electric kick start
smooth quiet ride
like new condition

Cash Only

Now that’s more like it! You can hear the smooth quiet ride from here. I’ll be the most comfortable person on the road. I haven’t figured out where the gas tank is, though. Or the starter. But once I get this thing going … VROOM!

It’s an all-Christina day on YSaC — thanks, Christina and Christina!

          I get confused, too, when posters don’t have gender-specific names or avatars clearly showing their {FEMALETRAITS1}. *sigh* I mean, I’m either a water or air sign, depending on whether we’re talking Chinese or Western birth signs, yet my avvie is burning people.

          We’ve heard numerous roosters and goats over the years around here. Since they don’t seem to stay around more than a few days, we’ve always suspected fights and cabrito were the end results.

          When I lived in California, we had a goat that was a pet in the hard behind us. His favorite thing to do was to butt the fence and get our dog riled up. There were also peacocks a couple of streets away. Those things were loud.

          Archie, be sure to read “Hen and the Art Of Chicken Maintenance” by Martin Gurdon. Very entertaining and a realistic view of having a small flock in your yard.

          I lived in Santa Ynez, CA, for a few months, and the house I was in was next to a huge cattle ranch. When the bulls were in rut, they made noises at night that were scary. All. Night. Long. Sleep could not be had. I would play Herb Alperts’ The Lonely Bull very loud to drown them out. 8)

          Well, I did not have tacos on Tuesday.

          Saw a very nice recipe for tortillas con papas that was tempting, though.

          Will be Wpastrami on Wonion bun with Wred Wonion and Wmuenster cheese Wednesday, though.

          Considering what I’ve seen carried on the subway, you could do it if you had enough people … and got on at the beginning of the line, when there was more room in the car.

    You know, the first picture is underestimating the value and use of the item. It’s not only a hide a bed, it’s also a bath, too, above, with a nice shower fixture, and coil heating next to it for those chilly days. And it looks like it comes with a nice towel or bath mat. Obviously this person doesn’t know how to market items to their full capacity.

    And I love the scooter in the next picture. I want it in my living room. Only I’m going to be a maverick and call it a “sofa,” or “couch,” or even a “davenport.”

    I call shenanigans!

    No way does that 150cc scooter get 90mpg! Tops: around a linty 70mpg. This guy is sofa off by at least 20mpgs. I’m not sold on the paint color either. My grandma looks like she ordered that paint detailing. And I prefer my tires to be more on the Fat Boy side (but it is good to know that there are six of them!). I’m going to have trouble keeping the cats and the dog off the seat as well. I sure hope there’s a waterproof scooter cover for it—wonder if it’s made by the Snuggieยฎ people.

    Ok, nostalgic [corey] for the nice example of a one-piece kitchenette, this is an appliance with a unique (and tiny) niche in the market.

    What a shame Sparky is like those [insert bucket of imprecations, invective, & expletives here] eBay types who blithely use the same add over and over again, with a one line throw-away near the bottom on how “item for sale may not be the one in the picture; but will be similar, I get many of the same thing all the time.”

    Now, the juxtaposition of a kitchenette and a settee then suggests a classic British bed-sit; so, the Keeping Up Appearances comparisons become legion.

It’s on a big, beautiful ranch about 20 minutes north of here, and she absolutely loves her new home and all the attention she is getting.
