Monday Mayhem

Monday Mayhem is not unlike Sunday Stealing, in that it provides quizzes for bloggers on a weekly basis. I figured I'd do one of them:

1. Lindsay Lohan was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail. What do you think her future has in store for her?

Jail time.

2. What is the biggest fashion "don't" that you would like to police?

I don't believe in fashion "don't"s. I've long come to the belief that virtually all of fashion consists of some folks somewhere deciding arbitrarily what's "in" and what's "out". I have no time for that crap, at all.

3. How should we punish sites that lure us in with "read this" and take us somewhere where we are first greeted by a pop-up and then a series of click throughs to actually read the meat of the story?

They should be beaten with tire irons.

4. What is the most you will do to post a comment on a site? At what point is it not worth posting a comment?

I don't comment enough on my favorite blogs, but I've been trying to do so more often.

5. If you purchase something online and you are charged for postage, is it still reasonable to charge for "shipping and handling"? What exactly does "shipping and handling" entail?

Well, it's not just postage. There's the cost of the box and the cost of the time and effort to get the thing packed and, if it's just you by yourself, getting the thing to the post office. When I ship stuff I sell via eBay, I tend to charge a dollar or so more than what I figure the postage will be. (Or, at least I used to, before eBay decided to mandate certain shipping charges, which I find annoying.)
