|I know, I know... I truly flipped my lid! Auction? An ONLINE auction? AM I INSANE??? (Yup.) Read on...|
|When I first saw that Limited Edition Spring PURPLE Furby on the AOL opening screen in February, I knew I'd have to have one! (Little did I know I'd be BIDDING on one only three weeks later in an online auction!)|
I live in New York City, so "Limited Edition" things like this are easily
available here... (What ISN'T available in New York City???) Famed toy
store F.A.O. Schwartz (where Furby debuted) is only a 20-minute subway ride
BUT, I had just gotten out of the hospital... (If you see my missing gallbladder, tell it "hi" for me. Heh) I could hardly move, much less hop on the subway into Manhattan... So, I did what any perfectly-normal, Furby-obsessed person would do! I went to an online auction! (Well, maybe not.)
The bidding for thePURPLE Furby had 15 minutes left... High bid was $120... (Oh, what the heck, right? If I can spend DOUBLE RETAIL for a regular Furby I can surely spend FOUR-AND-A-HALF TIMES RETAIL for a Limited Edition Spring PURPLE Furby! Right?) I bid $130 and watched the clock count down...
YES -- I WON!!!
So I sent a perfect stranger a MONEY ORDER for $130... Was I nervous? Well, yeah -- but hey, this is AMERICA gosh darn it and if you can't trust your neighbors who CAN you trust? Anyway, she's a lovely lady in Colorado... :-) (Wait... Colorado??? Ack! You don't think she's part of the New World Order that supposedly runs the new DenverInternational Airport, do you? Nah... I think I really need to stay away from those conspiracy websites...)
|My Limited Edition Spring PURPLE Furby arrived in PERFECT condition, only three days after the seller received my money order! (I was impressed!) She's #9,352 of 250,000! That's a pretty low number, kinda. (Hey, #1 of the Limited Edition Spring PURPLE Furbys was going for over NINE THOUSAND DOLLARS in the online charity auction!) I think I did well. (Didn't I???)|
Look at her...
May-Lah-Kah is BEAUTIFUL!
(And did I mention she's PURPLE? Heh)
