Posted:I thought it looked knd of exciting, but then i will buy almost anything, i'm so gullible it's embarassing.

I wonder what's in it though...

I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

Posted:I received a box something like that (a little flatter maybe) in the post just after Xmas.

I had no idea what was in it or whom it was from. Turned out someone was after naming a star after me as a Xmas gift. It came with a framed certificate, a map with the telescopic coordinates, a book & cd & stuff.

A very magical box indeed. It was the nicest gift I've ever received ubbrollsmile

My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely smile

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Posted:plastic model kits routinely sell for more than you can buy them for retail on ebay, and that is before the postage charges. It never ceases to amaze me.

Posted:ok first off, UCOF your new avatar scares me frown

and secondly, i'd be wayn too afraid to bid on that, not because i'd be afraid to get jipped, but for all i know they'd be sending drugs and i'd get arrested. i read about some guy that signed for a package that he didn't know what it was, but the post had already scanned it and knew it was drugs, so he got arrested for signing for it, even tho he didn't even know what the package was or who it was from to begin with.

ebay is weird. you can get some cool stuff, but then people sell just bizarre things sometimes. used panties. ew. ebay used to allow people to sell memorabilia from serial killers. that's just wrong.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Even better is when you get people getting put up for auction. I think they pull the 'item' before its deadline and it must ahve some curious connection to how people value themselves, or each other... most groovesome...
