Yep.  Coffee, black.  Fortunately not hot.  That "dog rodgering" line always gets me.

A fellow black coffee drinker!!! Hot, cold, or left on a burner long enough to have texture. Black coffee is my fuel of choice!
None of those sissy "grande! Frappe! Latte!" drinks for me!
Besides, I'd rather have a large Tim Horton's black coffee than something poured by a "Barista" any day!  :P
My motto is "If it's not strong enough to stain wood, it's not coffee!"  :D

I agree, but I will occasionally use cream if I'm too impatient to let it cool.  My preference is cold, black, and as close to the consistency of pitch as possible.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

The photos are the funny part.  Are they accurate images of the last thing an adventurer sees when charging into a dragon's lair?

One of my alternate eBay accounts won this.  Shipping was discounted to Media Mail, so it's a $15 Rules Compendium and whatever the other bits are.

The seller seemed nice enough, but what kind of monster uses "unusual horse toy straps to your leg for your child to" as an auction title?

Yes, it's safe for work, though I didn't think before I clicked.   :oops:

Clifford was embarrassed entering the meeting room when he realised he'd forgotten to do up his fly.

Clearly what the seller means is that he stores it near a new copy. :lol:

(I've found that abcdex is sometimes a little generous with quality ratings, but that's just ridiculous.)

Excellent physical condition. Excellent copy in general and has no writing or marks other than a previous owner's name on the front cover and on the booklet cover.


Well, it is still vaguely rectangular...
