ok so we did something that i would NEVER EVER DO. it was all JJ's idea. and it was soooo white trash that we were one Looney Toon tattoo away from a complete redneck breakdown.
i mean we did clean out the M.H. and had TONZ OF SHIT to get rid of: (TV and dog not for sale):
and.....ok it really wasn't as bad as i thought it was going to be. JJ was very gung-ho about the whole thing, and he called Rah and Nebular and set the whole thing up. it was actually a "DUAL-FAMILY YARD SALE" (as we advertised on CraigsList) in Rah and Nebular's driveway. we had it on Labor Day. which was kind of stupid. JJ and i arose at 6:30 a.m. that day to hang up the beautiful signs i made.
let me tell you, we are NOT our prettiest OR our nicest at 6:45 a.m. in the middle of highway 195 with the wind blowing and running out of packaging tape. and LET ME ALSO TELL YOU that those damn signs are deceptively high. like from your car they look eye level. but when you get close to them they might as well be as far away as the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. so after 40 minutes of finagling six signs up on the highway signs, we finally went to Rah and Nebular's house to set up shop. i woke up Rah and sent JJ for doughnuts. Rah and i worked hard to price things and set them out in the most appealing way:
i don't if you can see it, but there is a life-sized cardboard cutout of Kobe Bryant a long time ago. when he had hair. and dignity. OH SNAP! and we priced him at $8 because he's number 8. ha ha ha. we also priced the other items. but when JJ came back he ripped them all down because he said we were "too aggressive." whatever.
that's Rah and me slangin' tough at the yard sale.
anyway, we had some SERIOUS CREEPS AND WEIRDOS come to the yard sale, and some really cute girls who bought all my clothes. it was actually kind of fun. and altogether we made $200! wowza! Rah and i celebrated with dinner at Luna and a bottle of wine. and i promptly took my quarter of the proceeds and went shopping.
oh and p.s. i kept my sailor costume :)
