who hacked my Paypal account this morning, purchasing three ugly wallets (NOT EVEN CUTE ONES), from three different sellers on eBay, causing me to spend my first two and a half hours alone in many days NOT devising a lovely Monday morning post but calling PayPal and Amex, and changing usernames and passwords on eBay, since “Note: It may take up to 180 days to close your account.” WTF? Now I’m on my way to the bank to deal with it at that end. So not what I’d fantasized about doing with my 2 1/2 bot-free hours this morning.
So I can’t write the post I’d hoped to, but I’m not going to let the bad person far away ruin my ambitions completely: before I head to the bank, I’m going to show you that there is a sale–20% off! on the Cutest Kid Slippers Ever at Garnet Hill. The bots each have a pair of these boiled-wool babies, whose rubbery soles allow them to go from the bedroom to the Science Center with ease, and after two years, they show much less sign of wear than me. I tell you–cute, functional, and tough? They’re worth $44.00. And just for today, they’re only $36.00.
These slippers never go on sale. Ever. And they always sell out well before Christmas. And since I have to go home and get my other credit card before I can order even as much as a cup of coffee, please don’t buy the shark style in size 12.
