Firstly offy, I apologize for taking so long to get to the questions. Yesterday was a busy day for the Hixx!
Because of this review in Time Out (yay!):
And I also got myself a part-time job doing social media work. I'm really excited, it's a small company and they want to start off slowly, which is great. I certainly know the basics and can help them a lot, but I can learn while they do, which is awesome. I'm very pleased.
So, enough about me, lets get on with the music!
would you eat a teaspoon of people poop for 100,000.00?
A: You know, a year ago, that would be a definite no. But with all the money struggles of the past year, I really think I would. I think I would so much that I wish you were actually offering that to me. So my answer is hell yes I would. One question, could it be my own poop?
As a dog owner, how do you feel about leash laws in Chicago being enforced? Tyrranical, or to be expected?
A: I am totally cool with the leash laws. This is city living folks, and when you live in a city, you have 7 million other people to live with. I know some people are scared of Remo and I try to make people feel confident with the way we're walking, that Remo is not going to hurt them. Looking up the leash laws, I read some story of a lady who said her dog would not "bathroom" on the leash. That's bullshit...or dogshit, figure out lady who lives in the city. We're not on the farms of Indiana for petes sakes. Leash your dog, protect your dog, protect the people around you and do your damn best to make sure the neighborhood is comfortable for everyone.
From Jill (hello Jill!):
I read recently that Jill Biden is the first Second Lady to continue to hold a job. Is she also the first with the title "Dr." (PhD or M.D.)?
A: Yay Jill! An interesting question that I actually had to look up! Everyone learns here at Ask the Hixx. Lynne Cheney holds a doctorate in English. From what I can tell that seems to be the only one, but I had to stop looking because the articles about Dr. Biden were so horribly mean I got so mad I had to go bang my head against Muffy for a minute.
When you sell books on Half.com do you get the selling price + shipping? Does Half just pay you the shipping amt? Or the approved shipping amt?
A: The way I understand it is, Half.com will reimburse you for the standard shipping amount, if for some reason it costs you more to mail your item, then you eat that. So I pay the shipping out of my own account, but when they pay me for my sales, they include the rebate for shipping in that deposit. Half.com does take a commission from whatever you sell:
$50.01 - 15%
$50.01 - $100.00 - 12.5%
$100.01 - $250.00 - 10.0%
$250.01 - $500.00 - 7.5%
$500.00 - 5.0%
If there was any real overage or shortage from half.com, it was pennies. (I really did type "it was penis" right there, hee. I'm five.) I was pleased as punch with Half.com and they even figured out a dispute in my favor! It's easy and simple and I recommend everyone do it! We need to get back on, we took a "vacation" from when we moved and I have to reorganize my seller's list. But yay!
Thank you all for another lovely edition of Ask the Hixx. Now, where's my 100K?
