...idea, which you can read about here.
It seems one Ian Usher, a Brit living in Australia, decided to put his life up for sale on eBay. The winning bidder gets Usher's house, car, motorcycle, clothes and friends, plus a tryout at his job. Usher plans to take the proceeds and head off into the sunset in hopes of being able to set up afresh.
The impetus was, apparently, the breakup of Usher's marriage.
So for, the top bidder is offering almost $300,000 for the package.
I can't offer the goodies Usher's throwing in. No house, no car, no motorcycle.
But I'm willing to offer up everything I have:
A vast magazine collection, including several hundred magazines featuring my stories;
A pretty good library;
Clothes, mostly old, but all clean;
A mountain of debt;
Contact information -- some current, some not -- for all the women who have rejected me;
Contact information for all my clients -- some of whom are still in business -- who will, I'm sure, be glad to give you a shot at doing my work;
A bicycle, in good shape but sitting on two flat tires;
Miscellaneous junk, including videos, CDs, vinyl records, toys, etc., etc.;
Lots of memories: some good, too many bad.
