terrible geek

Or perhaps very good geek. It’s hard to tell the difference. I was poking around ebay last night (always a bad sign) and came across one of the–well, I’d seen them at train stations, but they call them bus shelter–X3 promotional posters. For Rogue, obviously; none of the others would tempt me. By “tempt” I mean “when we were in New York and taking the train out to Sunnybrook, we went by a number of stations that had X3 posters, and I was tempted to get off and steal one of the Wolvie ones and if I’d seen a Rogue one I think I might actually have done it”, so while there is no earthly need for a 4×6 poster, I, er, bid on it anyway.

The bid price, however, immediately shot up to within a few dollars of what I’m willing to pay (Trip introduced me to this crazy idea some years ago: decide what you are *actually* willing to pay for something, bid that, and simply accept it if you get out-bid), and there are five days left on the auction, so I can’t imagine I’ll get it. Sad. I would really (irrationally) like it. :)

Ted & I trundled into town (Cork) today and got some froot and some pork ribs and a pork roast (mmMMmm), and had a little DVD accidently. We picked up season 4 Alias and, um, AVP, Chicago, and…oh, Hellboy. See what happens when !Netflix doesn’t send us our moobies?

  1. Get the poster anyway, and some of us will chip in! (Y’know, as long as it stays an order of magnitude less expensive than the Willow costume.) You should have it. :)

  2. *dumb look*
    I feel stupid but i don’t think i’ve ever seen a pork roast, Just trying to figure if i’d call it by a different name.

  3. I’m pretty confident it’ll stay many orders of magnitude less expensive than the Willow costume. I wonder if people would chip in, ’cause I suspect it’s going to go for about $75 (+$25 shipping to Ireland, ugh), and I’m not personally willing to pay more than $40. *laugh* Wow, I’m a geek…

  4. You had to say pork roast. Having hamburgers tonight so guess what I will really be thinking about while I’m eating.

  5. oh wow… I’ve now seen a Pork roast… Looks rather like a large Pork steak *innocent look*

    now.. google? why does that word sound familiar…
    It can cure stupidity you say? How novel!

  6. So how much have you spent to have your hair just like Rogue? (speaking of geek!!)Spend the money on the poster if you want it!! :)


  7. There is no cure for stupidity, but when used properly, certain tools (like, oh, say, Google) can alleviate ignorance. :)

    The only solution for stupidity is death.

  8. I’ll be having hamburgers, as well, and I’ll be thinking about exactly that while eating them. (Well, that, and the really sexy girl and the great sex we’ll be having after the eating is done.)

    When done right, a burger is just as good as a pork roast any day.

  9. Actually, aside from this last turnabout with all the disaster, I’ve spent not that much money getting my hair to be Roguehair…

  10. Um, I guess? I mean, if you want to save the oxygen for someone who never makes a mistake, or something. You are aware I never said (nor implied) you were stupid…?

  11. I know… I’m in a hyper mood and I’m taking it out on Kits LJ.

    BTW, Sorry Catie.

  12. Oh, and Bill wanted me to ask if you have adopted the proper accent to go with the hair!

  13. I hope I haven’t sucked all the excitement out of eBay for you!

  14. Actually, not at all. I find it much more pleasant to set a price and forget about it, and if I win, I win.

  15. Oh, good! I’m sorry they wanted more for it than you were willing to pay, though.

  16. Me too. Although Marith said she’d throw in a few bucks if I wanted to raise my bid, and it’s thus far staying at $41…
