Comic Con Exclusive

This is probably really sad, but with all the exclusives out there I would like to try to get my hands on the Halmark Ornament set. I will probably resort to eBay to get mine, but we have a nice run on Star Wars ornaments and even though I missing a ton from Halmark those would be cool to get. I don't go out of my way to find them or buy them usually, but if my wife doesn't buy them then my family will usually pick them up and mail them, so I figure I might as well have this set too.

Re: Comic Con Exclusive

Meets more often would still be nice. We got close for a while at one a month or so. I am down to one day off these days and normally it is Sunday, but not always so still gonna suck for me a bit. But I am always for setting a date and hoping it works out.

Re: Comic Con Exclusive

I myself feel bummed... I've been having medical issues again and well I just don't feel happy. Its another unknown that could be something, could be nothing. I hate this.
If you all want to meet that would be great.

Meets

I'm down for the next meet, now that we finally got our car back from the body shop.


I know location is an issue, but I'm willing to host a meet too. We have a nice back yard with a good sized pool, so you all could bring your kids- or not, if you want quiet LOL, just have to rent a swamp cooler for the man cave in the garage (depending on the outside temp
We're also in delivery range of a good Chicago-style pizza place.

The catch - I'm over by Black Mountain, which I know is way out of the way for most of you. But I figured I'd offer!

Re: Crazy broad

So I go down to the Miracle Mile shops next to planet hollywood this afternoon. My day off and i've never been there so...I go into this upscale (ridiculously overpriced) trendy clothing store and i'm looking at the button long sleeve shirts with some cool looking designs and like a couple of brads or nail heads or something in it, and the sales lady says its a wonderful shirt and would really bring out my eyes. The tag says $165.00!!! Then she says a light blue or grey pair of jeans would really compliment the shirt. She hands me a pair of jeans with a price tag of $226.00!!! I asked her if they have a loan officer on site. She just blinked a couple of times and didn't say a word. I put the clothes down and walked out.

I don't care if I was rude. That's absolutely INSANE to sell them at that price. I don't care if it is a tourist mall on the strip. I'm comfortable paying up to $40 for a pair of jeans. Call me frugal in this era but if I spent $226.00 on a pair of jeans, my deceased Grandfather would rise from the ground, walk from Chicago to Vegas just to slap me in the back of the head.
And I would deserve it.

Yeah, I'm fine with going to someones house. I don't mind the drive, and i'm willing to pick someone up who might need a ride. At least we wont have to worry about the waitresses with deep eastern european accents and bushy eyebrows.

Re: Meets

Sent back my EFX X-Wing, I just couldnt come to the realization of owning a $1200 item, plus having to invest $200-400 for a display case...So $1400-$1600 for one item...I just couldnt do it...

The bad part is that I took a $200 hit for a 're-stocking' fee...but it was a $350 fee if I would have cancelled after ordering it...

Re: Meets

Yeah, that 1,000 dollar barrier is a hard barrier to justify breaking.

Now, I could say something mean like, "My wife doesn't seem to mind spending $1350.00 on a Disneyland timeshare behind my back...." But I wouldn't say something like that


Yeah, I couldn't bear to pay something like that unless Jeremy Bulloch presented it to me himself and promised to come by every week to perform cleaning and preventive maintenance on it. Even then it's only a solid maybe.
