I had tears in my eyes picturing it.
My mailbox is 6"x6", so I have had issues with the Post Office. I caught the mail broad cramming my Netflix DVD's into the box three weeks ago. I asked her why she was ramming them in there, and she said " They don't seem to fit", whereupon I asked her why she didn't lift her fat index finger and push the f*cking buzzer to alert me she was there. She looked at me like the brain-wasted bovine she resembles, and quietly handed me the mashed DVD's.
She buzzes me now.
I truly do not care if I appeared to be a dick. I certainly do not go to my customers' sites and wreck their merchandise, and I expect the same treatment from the mail bytch.

If you are truly a D&D completist then you have to buy both of these.  Of course you will never play them, and they will collect dust on a bookshelf or get thrown into a box at the bottom of the closet.  Otherwise you are just a D&D partialist.  Meanwhile, I'll keep looking for that hard to find Dark Sun home pregnancy kit.  :D

Is anyone else as bored at their job today as I am?  :P

KingOfPain, look closely at the picture for the second game.  Why is our intrepid D&D adventurer wearing a button down western shirt, belt, and what appears to be jeans or cords?  

What exactly did the artist think this game entailed? "Contemporary cowboy travels to ancient castle to battle giant scorpions.  With a spear."

:?:  :?:  :?:  :lol:

    When I first started delving into online in the 90's, I had a house on a "walking" route, the mailboxes were by the front door and the mailman had to walk the neighborhood after parking his little mail truck.  Things went ok for awhile, then the inevitible transfer left some lazy ace in charge of my route.  Even though he was younger and presumably healthier than the guy he replaced, instead of walking the route he would drive, stopping in front of each house and running to the front door to drop his stuff.  After about a week I guess he thought he might have been exerting himself too much, because instead of bringing boxes and packages to the front porch, he simply dumped them at the end of the driveways, saving himself a whopping 20 feet of exercise.  People started complaining because their packages were basically being left on the street instead of on their covered front porch (not to mention being left on the driveway, when it rained you might get home to a soggy package of grandma's cookies or whatever).  Of course receiveing valuable RPG items I made several visits to complain about this, with assurances that the guy was new and "just learning the route", and he'd get better if I just gave him a chance.  
     Nothing was done until the fateful day when he ran the route and did his usual stop and drop....it was around Christmas time and lots of people in the neighborhood were getting holiday packages, but unfortunately it was also trash day and this moron dumped all the packages in his truck along the route right next to everyone's trash, and the trashmen did their job and promptly picked up and tossed every package on the guy's route that day.  When about 50 extremely pissed off people crowded into the local post office right around Christmas time (when the place is already packed anyway), screaming and threatening physical violence and filing dozens of complaints and claims for lost packages (even azier than a lazy mailman is a lazy supervisor, they hate to actually have to deal with people), they finally transferred the moron off a route.  The funny addendum is that a couple of months later my wife and I recognized working at the local car wash, where his talents probably ran more true to form.

DL, You are my hero! I bet she could not have come with a reply to that given a week. I was laughing so hard here I was crying after reading that.

She still avoids buzzing me, she just leaves the packages at the office.
Two days out of the week she has a replacement, and he is awesome. I just pray she doesn't eat him, as I'm sure she does with the occasional package.
You should see the mail truck when she's driving it. I cannot believe it doesn't roll right over on a hard turn.
I am finding more and more that the average person's quota of common sense is dwindling rapidly. The kids are the worst. Go ask 100 teenagers to change a tire on their OWN car, and 90 will not know how.

Real Nice 1st PRINT Greyhawk folio.  Top has a little wear and the upper right hand corner is dinged a little bit, but other than that its almost perfect.  I think that the only times that the maps were ever opened were when the seller took this picture. :D

hmm... that is a nice copy.
You don't half pounce quickly, do you? :P

Prolly even better than the one I picked up recently, if a little bit pricier (depending on how you split the $);

Sweet one Clarkie! You were in the right place at the right time. Notice it was only up for just less than 7 minutes. Again Congrats!  :D

Well it arrived today. And I've got to say that the booklets look much better than the pictures. :D And I'm not sure what she meant when she said "They don't really smell bad - but they do smell like they are 30 years old!"  They smell like paper to me i.e. pretty odourless.

And one of the Strategic Reviews mentioned in the Q&A has a postage stamp and address. First one I've seen. Not that I've seen many.

So, now I have my old 3rd print woodgrain (with box) to sell. :wink

Will sort some out.  The books are quite nice.  But the box is VERY tatty.  With generous use of masking tape on every edge and corner.  But at least its a box.

Okay, today was a banner day in the Clark household as I had couple packages arrive in the mail today. First off, check out these 2 they have already discussed a little bit in the Interesting items on EBay thread, but they came today:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

Now both of those modules are almost perfect, which made it a pretty nice day. But then I opened the big box. The big box contained the real "FUN". A couple others already know, 1 who I actually beat to the punch and 1 I told already privately. Now check out what I won 2 Friday nights ago in the wee hours of the morning. I will preface this by saying I paid a total of $570.00, but make sure you are all sitting in a chair before you click on the links lest you might fall over and hurt yourself.

Lot #1
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212536017

Lot#2
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212532783

Lot#3
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212499602

Lot#4
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212468106

and the one you need to make sure that you are sitting down for, Lot #5
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212529085

Needless to say I was very happy when I got home from work today!! :D :D :D
