Bingo...and yes, the 1e stuff is overpriced.

Just wanted to make everyone aware that Guido's Eighth Episode is out now.  I can definitely tell this one was written in part by his kids with all the snot and booger references.  :D  :D  :D

He still hasnt changed that $100 BIN on that X10 though.  There must be someone out there that needs an X10 that bad.  8O

After much delay - THE EIGTHTH EPISODE!!


Where are we at - Ed has fallen asleep in a field of poppies due to an allergic reaction.   Thus, the wagon is no longer rolling and a band of goblin "border guards" jump the wagon.   Solomon is capering about as he identifies the leader of the border guards as his brother.   And of course, Guido is surly.

You can hardly believe it, the big man (or in this case, the giant) is down.   An allergic reaction has rendered him a sleeping baby.   Yup, poppies, poppies will put them to sleep.

Amidst the heavily armed goblins and the capering Solomon, you look to Guido.  The corner of the mouth creaks upward and he rumbles, "Wait for it!!"  

"What the . . . ", you stammer?   Raising your hands, you move towards Guido.  "Wait for what?"

"Shuddup," yaps Jojo, Solomon's apparent brudder.   "Shuddup or I'll pin ya to the wagon."

"Wait for it," whispers Guido, now that you are next to him.

"That's it, pin 'em to . . . ."

"AAAACCHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!"   A horrific sneeze, unleased by Ed, rends the air.    

The sun disappears from sight as an amorphous blob covers it.   A wad of boogies (yup, you know, - snot, loogie, boogers) reaches its pinnacle, and begins to decend on the goblin mass.   Guido yanks you under the wagon with him just before impact.  The scattering goblins (no gobboogers) stuck to the ground with the likes of fly paper.   Good thing you waited for "it".  

"A timely gift from Ed?" you mumble in amazement at the quantity.

But where are Jojo and Solomon . . .

So if it wasn't leased, then he must have bought it somewhere?

Seriously, man, thanks for posting it.  I actually get a kick out of Guido's installments.   :lol:

Can't say I didn't warn anyone . . . this is what happens when a 14 and an 8 year old cook something up.   Believe me, it was more vile before I edited it.  

As for X10, I am slowly closing down my store on eBay, so it will likely sit out there a bit longer.   I really, really want to keep it, but . . . like someone stated in an earlier post, I "told" my wife I am selling everything . . .

I will sell mine to Guido (or anyone else) for half that.

Anyone interested?

:D

Actually, that was the first installment that made me giggle...knowing FOR CERTAIN they are written by children makes them 100 times funnier for some reason....

Now you've done it.   Both kids were reading over my shoulder and now they think they are funny.   CRAP!!  And after years of telling that they are not.   So much for college . . . straight to comedy school.   If that is the case, at least I will have more for my toys . . .

Hey, coming from a couple of kids that stuff's funny....but coming from an adult I'd get worried...the simple truth is, kids love boogers, but adults not so much....:D

Hey Guido,
So you live in the Mini-Apple...I used to live on 4th St., you know "Positively 4th Street" of Bob Dylan fame, just outside the U of M campus and right across the street from a little market named after a couple of guys.  Don't recall the exact name, but I remember they used to have a slogan that went something like "Eat food and Spend money". Sound familiar?  Right next door to a head shop.  Proably all torn down by now...

Absolutely!!  I live about 10 blocks from there on 5th.   My wife took me to Possitively 4th Street on our first date.   They are under a new name right now (can't recall) and the market was just refurbished.   Remember the church that was across the street from the market - about 6-8 months ago, an entire wall fell down.   Now the church is torn down too.   How long ago where you here?   Did you go to the U?

Man, that is just too cool!  I went to the U from '85-'89.  I remember that church.  My building was either right next to it or one down from it.  Two story white apt. building, the only one on the block (the others were red brick, IIRC).  That place was wild.  A couple of hot lesbians lived in the apt. across the hall from mine, and they often left their curtains open, if you know what I mean.  (Pardon me, just parking my bike.)

Too funny!!   We were there at the same time (although I took until 1991 to finish).   Did you ever get a chance to go to Dreamhaven in Dinkytown?  They closed up about a year ago.   As sad as I was about the closing, it allowed me to fill some big holes in my collection at their discounted prices.  

Where are you at now?   Any pics from your bike parking episodes? :twisted:

I don't remember Dreamhaven, but was ALL OVER Dinkytown, so if it was there in the 80's then I probably checked it out.

Where am I now?  What do Joe Namath and Joe Montana have in common?

And how much are you willing to pay for pics?  How about videos?   :twisted:
