Buy your neighbor’s abandoned stuff

While running out for lunch today – where I had TacoSoylent Bell for the first time in years and remembered why I don’t eat there – I heard a brief bit on the Kojo Nnamdi show about MD’s abandoned property program. Like all states, MD has to deal with abandoned accounts and physical property in some way. They ceased doing auctions on the courthouse steps – which comptroller Peter Franchot says had poor turnout – and switched to Ebay. You can see the various things up for auction that people have left in safety deposit boxes here.

None of it really blows my skirt up personally but it looks like there might be some decent deals.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
