King Towing in Fairfax, VA. One of the few pleasant experiences I've ever had with a towing company. They showed up within an hour after I'd called them, the driver was friendly, and the whole process was quick and efficient. A 20-mile tow cost me around $120 plus a tip, which is cheaper than I'd expected. Car is stashed in my office parking lot for the time being, where based on historical evidence it should be fine for at minimum several months (until somebody comes in, fixes it up, and steals it, but that's a story for another time).

[ profile] serolynne and [ profile] radven are heading to Las Vegas for the next month to volunteer for the Obama campaign, and are looking for a safe spot to park their trailer for that month. Any of y'all have or know someone who has a spot that might fit the bill?
Does anyone know anyone in Las Vegas who might be able to offer us a flat, safe, space to park for a month? Side yards, drive-ways, back lots, commercial parking lots, etc. We're solar powered (don't need electrical), would mostly just be sleeping there and perhaps occasional access to real showers and laundry.

If you've got any leads, please leave a comment on Cherie's post.

[Edit: A later post says they're instead heading up to Carson City.]

I currently have three extra lawn tickets for Thursday's performance of the comic oratorio "Not the Messiah" with Eric Idle, and I figured I'd offer them to my f-list before I put them up on Craig's List on Tuesday afternoon. For y'all, I'll give them to you for the $10 each that I paid for them (currently priced at $20 each) and eat the service charge. Leave a comment here or email me at my @lj email address if you want 'em, and we'll work out payment and ticket hand-off logistics.

I've got some stuff I intend to post on eBay, but I figured I'd give y'all first crack at anything you might want. These photos were quick snapshots on my way out the door this morning; I can try and get better photos of stuff tonight if you want, just let me know. Shipping isn't included in the prices, contact me and we can figure out what it will cost to get it from me to you; I generally charge actual shipping costs.

Delicious Corsets Chatterley overbust 36", worn I think three times. Should fit 38"-42", depending on how tight you want to lace. (This style on a model) I paid $400, it now retails at $440. I'm going to set my reserve at $250. (*sniffle*)

Blue velveteen Gallery Serpentine back-lacing Victorian 30". [Tentatively claimed.] Should fit 32"-36", depending on how tight you want to lace; I would say probably 32"-34" would work best. Back lacing only, no front busk. I bought this back when everything they offered online was made-to-measure and I'm the textbook definition of an apple/oval shape, so it will probably fit best if you've a similar shape and not an hourglass to start out with. (But hey, lacing and reasonably adjustable.) Again, worn maybe two or three times. Currently selling for US$155; reserve will be $70.

Reaction by Kenneth Cole Mary Jane wedges, size 7.5. Bought new and are completely unworn, because I'm a 7.5-8 and these pinch a bit. 7-7.5 should be good though. $15.

Pearl white 8i Doc Martins, women's UK 5. Unworn. Reserve will be $50.

Muro "Killer" platform boots. I think they're a women's 7, but they run large and they fit me just fine at 7.5 (although I wouldn't wear really thick socks with them). In much better condition than they appear from this quick snapshot, only worn a few times. Size zippers, front lacing, padded front panel with four buckles, 3" platform soles. For shipping purposes, I'll point out that these puppies are kind of heavy. I paid over $200 for these new, and Muro has since gone out of business, at least as far as I can tell. I'll set reserve at $120.

No photos currently, but I have a pair of size 18 pleather pants that I bought from someone on my f-list a while back. I like them, but they don't fit me well enough to be flattering and I'd like to see them go to a good home instead of hanging in my closet. $20.

I need to make sure it's cleaned off, but I'm also ditching my old cellphone and accessories. There's nothing wrong with it, I just decided to upgrade to a SYNC. It's an unlocked quad-band Motorola V635; I used it with Cingular with no problems by just popping in my existing SIM. I had a bit of an issue for a while finding the correct data network settings for Cingular, but never had any issues at all with the voice service. It's apparently from Singapore and if you need to SMS in Chinese, you're all set. ;) (Everything's also available in English, no worries.) It comes with a charger (and an adapter for US use) and a car charger, and I'm throwing in an extra travel charger, a USB cable and a copy of Motorola Phone Tools for transferring files to and from the phone. With the cable/Phone Tools/extra charger it ran me about $200, I'll probably post it for $120.
