Making money in Atlantic City

Hi all.  I'm in Atlantic City this weekend.  I came with my girlfriend (the one that questioned the irony of my name) to AC.  She's visiting her family in NJ and I'm making money by chilling in the swanky hotel room.  Really, I am.  Now we all know they don't keep the lights on in those casinos by giving away the money.  Check out what has been happening at the Tropicana this past week.  Can you say "pay out 11 MILLION!!!" 

Yeah, I'd never have the guts to make the kind of bet it would take to win that kind of cash. 

To be completely honest, I'm not a betting kind of girl.  I just can't do it.  So, why do I go to Atlantic City?  My answer is, it is just good to get away sometimes.  I'm enjoying my time away.  I'm relaxing.  I walked on the boardwalk.

Yep, walked.  I didn't take a ride in one of those carts.

I'm way too cheap to pay those prices.  I went and got a pedicure.  And, I made money.  Yep, I'm back on eBay selling silver.  Sure, the price isn't as high as it used to be, but... there is still money to be made out there people.  I have my camera and my laptop and I'm snapping pics and writing descriptions and adding items to my sell page on eBay.  I know this isn't romantic, but I enjoy it.  This is my kind of gambling.  I just can't do the slots or the tables.  Congrats to the big winners, but I'll make my money the old fashioned way.  Working for it. 


  1. How very fun!  I've sold silver on ebay for years..that and other jewelry bits and pieces. 

    The only gambling I've ever done was in the casino aboard a cruise ship.  I'm cheap like you and did the slot machines.   ha.  Well, cheap, and I also don't know enough about Black Jack to play. :)

    Have fun!

  2. nice...sounds like you are having a fun weekend...and we do need to get away and do that at times...good clean fun...smiles. hope your ebay sales go good..

  3. You are so much fun! Good for you for getting away!

  4. Like the photos. Glad that you are having a good time. Take care and enjoy your relaxing time there.

  5.  I'm so glad to meet another eBayer.  Isn't selling the most fun EVER.  I think your jewelry is so pretty.
