The Thursday Threesome: This Week’s and Last Week’s
eBay and PayPal
Onesome: eBay– Is eBay your first stop when looking for something? …or your last place to go when you cannot find it anywhere else? Do you even use it? …and hey, have you scored anything choice there lately?
I go to eBay very rarely and I haven’t bought anything there yet. I guess I’m sort of paranoid about putting money in and never getting anything back.
Twosome: and– while we’re at it: if you did your shopping online for Christmas, how did it go? Did things come in on time? Any significant failures? …and if you didn’t, will you consider trying online shopping sometime this year?
Threesome: PayPal– Online shopping and services can be somewhat of an adventure; is PayPal your choice as a payment option or do you prefer another method. …or do you shop locally or not at all?
I don’t use PayPal.

Please be Seated
Onesome: “Please– join us for a light dinner and some conversation.” If you were coordinating a group of say, the thirty or so regulars here, where would you like to have them meet in your area to be able to spend some time talking and eating?
Sure, if everyone lived nearby. Finding a place is the easy part. Coordinating a time which fits everyone’s schedules would be difficult.
Twosome: be– my Valentine? Yes, it’s early, but do you have ‘traditional” dinner plans for that holiday (or the time around it)? …or if you don’t, where would you like to go?
No. I consider Valentine’s Day like any other day. It’s only other people who use it as an excuse to buy flowers and candy and go out to eat. You can do that on other days of the year too. It’s not against the law to buy roses on Halloween…
Threesome: Seated– Hmmm… Table or booth? Do you have a preference when you go out to eat? Just wondering…
I like the booth because I have a “back against the wall” mentality. At least in the booth, you have the illusion that you’re not so exposed to the other diners.
