Close the book on this, please!
I can’t handle it anymore.
So, with that, I’m doing something about it.
I’ve twice been outbid at the last second in my attempts to secure a Pocket Penguins 70th Anniversary box set. Twice I’ve bid £50, and twice I was either outbid at the last second with no option to raise, or my computer was so slow (at work, no less) that I didn’t even stand a chance. Obtaining this box set has been the bane of my existance for the past six months — torturing me daily as it slowly sold out.
So, with that, I’ve garnered enough gall to do what I should have done two weeks ago: just buy it already!
I’ve got to wait for the proper payment method to return to my house (meaning Kerrie’s credit card,) but I’ve decided that, with the $50 I received from my Argus Leader article and the $50 unspent dollars of this months book budget, I can buy this without guilt. I think it’ll be worth it – I’ve got an entire year of book columns right there at my fingertips if I wanted, and each edition looks so cool that I’d be dumb not to bite at this.
Later tonight I will turn another page in my long struggle with life – I will get the balls to just up and buy this damned book box.
I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll just consider it my Christmas present to myself.
Well, I guess additionally to you, the reader, as well.
After all, you’ll hopefully never have to hear me whine about this set ever again.
