Well, once again it has been too many days since checking in to my world, but I have been on a mission. A genuine-Oscar-Goldman-the-world-is-hanging-in-the-balance-I'm-gonna-kick-some-bad-guy-heiney-mission.
First of all, no disrespect to Wonder Woman, but I can relate to Jamie Sommers. I just don't have the chest to pull off the Wonder Woman get-up, although I would be down with commandeering an invisible jet to fly off to the League of Justice, or let's say...Paris...every now and again. But Jamie Sommers it is.
I have shared how I am on my Dave Ramsey gazelle intense plan to eradicate debt from my life. I have been selling
In an effort to sell items we have not used in years, I listed our pool fountain for sale. This is a beautiful piece...well, see for yourself:
Disclaimer: Stock Photo - while my pool is awesome this ain't it!
I know, right?! And while it can be very relaxing to listen to while swimming (or drinking wine poolside) I figured not listening to bills depositing into the mailbox can be just as relaxing. So onto Craigslist it went.
Right away I had a reply of interest...and everything was going swimmingly (sorry...little pun intended) until time came to arrange the pickup. Then came the "I'm gonna mail you a bank check and when you let it clear your bank I'll have my driver come pick it up and you can give him the balance of the check to pay him."
Obviously sean4strong doesn't know who he is dealing with here.
I put on my bionic woman detective hat and became determined to take this Fembot DOWN!
My anger over what this freak was trying to do overcame my Fembot fear. I was so furious someone thought they were going to wipe out my bank account I became a woman on a mission. And today the check came. I super-sleuthed my way all the way to Birmingham, Alabama. Sadly, after gathering all of my evidence, I learned Oscar Goldman wasn't even interested. Sadly, this type of scam happens all the time and doesn't even warrant official attention.
Needless to say, I turned off my bionic ear and used my bionic arm to pour a bionic glass of wine. And I gave thanks for the knowledge to spot a fake check when I see one (kudos to sean4strong...this was a really good fake...and I pity the person who puts their trust into this shyster.)
So in closing, I thought I would end my bionic woman day with a laugh. A few years ago I fell in love with an AWESOME show called Freaks and Geeks. In honor of Jamie Sommers and all that is bionic, here is one of my favorite clips of Bill Haverchuck dressing up for his last year of trick-or-treating as the Bionic Woman.
But please don't laugh too loud...it will hurt my bionic ear.
