Help Me Somebody, I gotta stop!!!

Post by Keltonks » Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:59 am

I know, I know, I need help. But merely knowning that I need help is not enough!! Somebody out there has gotta have a cure!

A FOOL and his $$$$$$$ ........... $150.09 for a Sonic Holography calibration disc!!!!! Didn't think anyone else would be foolish/insane/crazy/desperate enough to bid $150.00 for a CD!!!. $50.00 maybe, but not $150.00!!! The guy who bid $150.00 didn't think there was anyone out ther who would be crazy enough to bid over $150.00. He was WRONG!! That extra $0.09 made all the difference, and what a difference. My wallet is crying and my back pocket is soaked.

But I will be rewarded in my KARMA.

Please check KARMA for further developments.

Just doing my part to stimulate the economy.

Cats and rats and elephants, and sure as you're born, you ain't gonna see no Unicorn. babble.... babble, incoherent mutterings. Later this week I'll be weaving baskets in the corner and twiddling my thumbs and toes with Napoleon XIII.

I thought Toymaker had copies of that to give away. I don't think the vinyl version even brought that much $$. :-k Enjoy it ! :lol:

Thanks for the support. From scanning the forum I realize that there are copies of the Holographic CD floating around, and I have read discussions as to which was the best type, burned this way or burned that way. Once I have an original in my hands then there will be more floating around. I already have two vinyl copies but no way to burn wax.

Keep an eye out and you'll see what I mean in the near future.

Just for the record, I didn't intend to spend as much as I did, I just bid fantastically high so that I would be sure to get an original, non-burned CD. It's just that some other SOB had the same idea as I did but his bid was $0.09 lower than mine. Probably somebody suffering from OCCD but just doesn't realize it. At least I know that I need help.

What goes 'round comes 'round. After bidding this morning a client called up and said he'd have a grand for me Thursday. I guess I can afford it. I will share the LOVE.

You do know there is no cure for OCCD. You will purchase more and more equipment to try to satisfy your habit but it will never be enough. Next thing you know you will be trying to mutate sea bass and mount laser beams on there heads so you can take over the world and own every piece of carver equipment ever made.

Actually, Sunfires have a 2 to 1 effect on OCCD because of their price. So you're even

There is no cure...I guess we all can agree on that but you can be put into remission. You need spiritual guidance. [-o< What you need to do is delete all links to all auction sites. If you even think of looking at one do this immediately ](*,) and repeatedly and repeat to youself, I will not click this link. [-X Turn away from you computer and go quickly to your stereo, turn it on and grab you favorite music on whatever source you prefer and play it loud, sit in your favorite chair and just do what you should be doing and what the "MAN" himself,His Royalness Mr. Bob Carver, has been preaching to us for all these soooo many years.
