I wrote this blog in 2009 when I only had the Small Person. Now there are FIVE!
In the news today, the story of a 10-year-old girl in Essex who listed her grandmother on Ebay for $3500 because she was "annoying". There were 27 bids, but regulations forbid listing human merchandise, so the lady has been withdrawn.
I wonder what I might fetch? I don't think I'm annoying, at least I try not to be. Hmmmm.
