F*** my job, super-fantastic moving sale/travel fundraiser bonanza!

Everything must go...even my Festivus pole...

I've had enough...corporate rat race, high rent, car payments, suicidal traffic...I want out, and I don't want to wait until I'm 65 to retire (maybe, if all goes 'well') just so I can get on a cruise ship with a bunch of 65 year old retirees (no offence to any 65 year olds or retirees). So, I'm "thinking outside the box" and selling everything I own (almost), quitting my high paying yet soul destroying job, cashing out my (meager) investments and traveling the world now, while I'm still young enough to enjoy it...before I bludgeon myself to death with an unresponsive laptop.

I might be out of my mind (I'm pretty sure my mom thinks I am), but that doesn't mean you can't buy my stuff at a super-fantastic price. Even if you don't really need a particular item, you can buy it just because you want to help a fellow human escape. If you're feeling especially generous, you could even pay more than I'm asking for something or just donate cash outright. Either one is okay. :-)

Please email me if you have any questions or to arrange pick up. If you'd like to see anything that isn't pictured below, just let me know and I can send you a picture via email. I have a few more things that I'll be adding over the next couple of days as well, including my 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid with just over 16k miles.
