Aiee! Ebay!

Filed under: geekery,Uncategorized — lexifab @ 7:55 pm

This is what happens when the mental blocks are down for even a second. Ebay gets in and squeezes. There I was, idly wondering whether the classic Enemy Within campaign for the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying system is still in print (it’s not) and then wondering whether I could dig up a copy somewhere else…

…and suddenly it’s 45 minutes later and I’ve got two bids in for out of print roleplaying stuff from over ten years ago. For a completely different game that I haven’t played for at least 6 years. And I’m wondering whether $115 is good value for the complete Seasons 1 and 2 Veronica Mars DVD boxed set.

Step away from the keyboard, sir. Your reasoning functions are impaired.


  1. OMG, seasons 1 and 2? SWEEET. (does that include postage?) I have decided that I want to marry Veronica Mars.

    (I did the ebay thing a few weeks ago, and I didn’t realise I’d won anything until it showed up and I figured I shoudl probably *pay* for it!)

  2. I think it is much better to be addicted to selling on ebay. Sure, often enough I technically lose money on some of the deals, but I revel in making people happy. Also very exciting to see people bid frantically at the last minute.

  3. Emma – I think you and Veronica would make a cute couple. I will pass on your message next time I happen to dream about her 🙂

    Marco – It is very exciting to be the frantic bidder at the last minute too. I can see why people get totally hooked on it.

  4. This is why I stick to the Auction House on WoW, it is pretend money with pretend loot and I only go into pretend abject poverty. My child doesn’t starve either, which is handy.

  6. If Bani wins at the AH, they eat Cheery Pie. If noones buys Bani’s goodies, or if Bani just HAS to have that new bow, then the kids are back down to the Plains of Mulgore to hunt Kodo for their supper. Sucis the life of a tauren Hoofling with an AH Addict for a Sire 😀
