Another goofball item I listed alongside some serious ones. It got a couple of curious watchers, but no takers. eBay never laid a cancel on it. I guess their regulations regarding used mousepads aren't as strict as their ones about used clothing or expired food products.

My Old Grubby Disgusting MousePad from Work!

Today is a truly monumental day in the history of the human race. For on this day of days, the whole of humanity has the opportunity to bid on one of the most esteemed artifacts of our great civilization: My old grubby disgusting mouse pad from work!

I have been at my current job for almost 8 years now. Does that mean I am on a solid career path, or stuck in a rut? You decide. I have been using this mousepad ever since I started, and even back then I think I got it as a hand-me-down. Due to its sentimental value I just had to auction it on eBay.

This mousepad is grey in color (or at least it was back when it was new) and has "LAN\mind", centered at the bottom in red lettering. I do not know what "LAN\mind" means, but it sounds like something that would blow off your leg if you stepped on it. However I stepped on it myself and can assure you it is perfectly safe. The felt fabric is starting to peel away from the foam rubber material at the corners and edges of the pad. In the center it is badly discolored from a combination of wear, hand sweat, ink spots, food crumbs, the occasional spilled beverage, and God only knows what else.

Now, before anyone accuses me of stealing from my employer, I'll have you know I purchased a shiny NEW mousepad with my own money to replace this one. It was just going to get thrown out anyway, because let's face it, no one else at the office would touch this thing. Not even Gary. So I figured why not give a grubby-disgusting-mousepad enthusiast a shot at it? As I understand it these are highly collectible, and this one is among the grubbiest and most disgusting I have encountered in a long time. Don't miss out!

$1.00 for shipping, $2.50 for international. I can frame it if you want but that's extra.

My mouse sure is happy I got a new pad to replace this one...

Oh my GOSH! You're not going to believe this, but I was taking a closer look at the stain on this mousepad (yes, I have no life) and I SWEAR if you view it in the right light it looks like the Virgin Mary! And maybe Jesus, too. And Muhammad. And Buddha. And L. Ron Hubbard. It looks EXACTLY like all of them.
