After a loud commotion one night that nearly gave the Comic a heart attack I decided I needed bookends for my shelf. I've been looking for a while and nothing caught my eye until I found a pair of brass dragon ones on Craig's List. The guy wanted $4 for them. I had my doubts, but I trudged down to the southern part of the city the other night to get them. I knocked on the door to be greeted by an older Chinese lady. I told her what I was there for and she looked at me strange. Than she called out to Julian to see if he knew what I was talking about. So I'm thinking it's her son. When this short, old Chinese man shows up I was proven wrong. After about 10 minutes of me standing around he informs me he can't find them. Ugh. I tell him to email me if he does find them. One day later I'm the proud owner of pretty cool bookends.
I usually keep an eye open for items that I would like if the price is right. I was surprised to find a Motoko Kusanagi figure for only $1.75 on Ebay yesterday. The auction would end that night and no one had bid high. I figured I would have a good shot at getting it for a cheap price. The Comic has very little history with Ebay so she wanted to sit with me in the last few minutes to see if I won it. She was cute and wanted to do a 10 second count down. However in the last 5 seconds the price jumped $25. Boy you should have seen her. She was angry and brooding after wards like she had lost. It was pretty funny. She was surprised that I didn't bid more, but like I told her. Everything has a price for me plus I know what is more important that I need to do with my money. Oh well I'll keep looking.
