    Am on umemployment now - and it's a very (pretty insulting) small amount - not enough to cover my rent even if i don't use it for anything else. Job market is so bad right now that for the last few weeks the help wanted section of the paper has been in large print to fill up the page! Major bills soon coming up with no way to pay them...

    ,and personally, not doing all that well - since the Amazon job fell through, i've sunk into a very deep depression that's really pretty much paralized me recently...and this is coming from someone who's struggled with depression most his life! This current bout is nothing like what i've gone through before and it's really scaring me. I spend a lot of free time in bed since i'm just numb and emotionally drained and yet still hardly ever get any sleep because of continual horrific nightmares. I'm really not sure how long i can go on like this.

    I'm in much the same boat myself, save for the aid (however small it might be) of unemployment, so I can certainly relate to the paralizing depressive state. Wish I could afford to help you out and buy something, but I've been scrounging of things of my own to sell just to pay the bills. Best of luck my friend...

    I certainly hope more people will see this thread and want to buy from you. I don't know if you can still send the four records you have for me, but more importantly, I just want everything to at least be okay for you. We all hope that you will make it one way or another.

    P.S.
    If you still need my address, feel free to send me a message.

    Walls are closing in!

    Have only had a couple of small orders and i have very large important bills coming up that i can't currently meet. I've also been dealing with a more-severe-than-ever-before seasonal allergy attack for over a week now that not only has left me sick, achy, and irritable but also semi-disabled (ears plug up leaving me half-deaf - not only hugely annoying but makes job hunting all the more impossible) Between the stress levels, malnutrition and the illness, i've had the most horrifying nightmares i've ever experienced in my life - i'm literally scared to go to sleep these days. Whatever fates control my life sure enjoy kicking the stuffing out of me with stiletto heels when i'm down! I really think this may end up a losing battle.

    Doing quite a bit of interviews/applications but still nothing yet. Unemployment benefits soon running out and lots of bills coming up fast (and a tire set to blow any day now which will be a $200 repair when it does) - things very tight - can't see well since i can't afford a new eye exam to get new contact lenses - really needing help!

    (In addition to some new items, you'll also note a few previously removed items added back due to the last TWO people who committed to buying something never followed through! UNbelievable!)

    how much is strangepork?

    My bad. Somewhere along the line, i started to leave out the info on how the prices work when i copy my list of what's still available...

    Everything's sold silent auction style. Make a reasonable, realistic offer and if no one else makes a higher offer within 24 hours (and it's not too low), it's yours for that price.

    Now the bad news. Supposedly, i already have a buyer for Strangepork. I say "supposedly" becuase the last two people who gave me a commitment they were buying something never honored it. I've not received payment for the latest person who said they were buying Strangepork and The Muppet Movie dvd and given my recent experience, i'm not counting chickens. All i can say regarding Strangepork is stay tuned and maybe he may end up still available (if i haven't lost everything anyway by then as things are VERY bad and tight right now and i am f-ing terrified), and in the meantime, let me know if there's anything else you may like.

    This is the first time i've updated this thread since the forum change - but this stuff is all available, as usual offers that i did get last time wimped out and never followed through, and i'm in serious danger of eviction right now and the walls are closing in fast on everything. Looks like the end is near but at least i've seen it coming and have been preparing.

    Because of the multitude of inconveniences with the new forum, it's stongly reccomended to directly email me at dw_m@webtv.net rather than sending a message through the forum - please reference muppets in your subject heading so it doesn't get mistaken for spam.

    DWMckim, if he doesn't mind me responding in his stead, has issues accessing MC. I think he's posted his email address somewhere on this thread. He'll have a better chance of receiving your message if you do that.

    Quick update - i know i said that it's better to email me directly than PM me through the forum, but i recently realized that it's most likely wiser to request that people actually DO PM me through the forum...reason being that i can access the forum through a library computer or other place if something happens where i can't access at home (and the very real possibility exists that i may soon either lose said home or have to give up having electricity when it comes down to choosing which bills/expenses need to be sacrificed over others ... which either way leads to a scenario that leaves me without access to my personal email.) So...yeah MC forum PM's (or "conversations" to use current terminology) are probably the best route!! (To be super, ultra safe - i'd reccomend sending both a PM and an email so all bases are covered)

    (ps. a few of you have asked me questions about some stuff via email that i haven't answered yet and if you're waiting for my reply, hang on - it's coming - i've been having my attention spread all over the map this last month)

    (Sorry, ilovemuppet4eva, but as you'll see from my listings of what i have - things like bedding/sheets and the like are not among things i own.)

    Well, I didn't overnight it, but you'll be getting help soon. :)

    First, i want to thank everyone who's helped me out since the beginning of this nightmare to present. If it weren't for the people here, i would NOT have made it this far.

    In the latest major blow to this major curse i seem to be under, my car has finally broken down to being beyond repair. At least i knew that was going to eventually happen sometime this year and i am quite amazed and thankful that it's lasted as long as it has, but now - no more car and no way to afford a new one in sight. This is really not good. Because the bus system in Phoenix is so lousy, it means that i'm not exactly a shut-in, but one or two steps below one. It takes one to two hours extra to get anywhere (including to and from work), this is going to keep me from really being able to search for or work a second job or finding a new/better paying job - i'm stuck at my current low-paying one (At least it's close to home which is one of the major reasons i took it, suspecting this time would eventually come).

    Anyway, the main reason i wanted to post this is not to worry anyone that i'm going to do anything drastic real soon (it's very tempting and as a lot of people know i do already have considered self-termination plans this year or next - but i'm hanging in here for the moment - this latest event may have stepped things up but again, i'm at least trying my hardest to at least make it to see the new Muppets film) but to let everyone know that because of my mobility challenges, the turnaround time for orders may be delayed as the times it takes me to get to post office and mail stuff or pick up mailing supplies etc would be longer. (I've already contacted some people privately about this and as i explained upthread, this has also been what's taken me longer to reply to some other people who've written me) So if it takes a week or two to mail orders out, i ask everyone's patience and understanding. It may also take me longer to respond to emails and inquiries because my work day is so much longer now when the travel time to and from work and elsewhere is added in.

    And of course - it just reinforces I NEED HELP! At least i can knock one bill off the table for now (insurance and re-registration which would have been next month) but given the prices of bus fare, i'm not all that sure it makes a wild difference in regards to overall savings. I really feel like i'm just trying to drain an ocean with a thimble right now and then eventually i'll have to give up and give in, but i'm still fighting and struggling though no matter how miserable and unworth living life is.

    -----------------------------
    Not going to post a full available merchandise list right now, but will just say what items are no longer available: Richard Hunt zine, The Works, No Strings Attached, MP's Guide to Live, TMM dvd.

    Also a reminder, it's best to PM me through the forum since i could at some point lose either electricity or phone service which means inability to check emails at home. For best results, it's probably best to both email and pm me so i get it either way - but PM is the better option among the two.

    I'll also go ahead and put my mailing address on here (it's a PO Box so it's not like i'm publicly telling everyone where i live) to help answer one of the FAQ's and so people have it right away and can reference it (i'll also add it to future updates)
