Aside from "Watch more Winter Olympics than is mathematically possible" my February to-do list also had "clean out some of the piles of comics" on the list.
As part of that effort, I decided to put several dozen of those comics up on e-Bay, so as to clean them out of the house altogether. So, I sorted out several dozen comics that I bought and enjoyed over the last year and put them up for bids in thirteen lots. I figured this would kill two birds with one stone:
1) Get some of the comics out of the house.
2) Put a bit of spending cash in my pocket. I then committed myself to using that cash to fund a date night with Monique.
Either one of those goals would make Monique happy. The two together? Nirvanna!
Alas, only two of my 13 lots have so far attracted any bids. The Monique date-night fund is only up to $7.50. This might almost fund a dinner expedition to Taco Bell, but I'm not sure we can squeeze even so much as a movie rental out of the remainder.
There's a pretty good assortment, including some Star Treks, Doctor Who Classics, Batgirl, Dan Dare, Captain America, a Spider-Girl trade paperback, X-Factor, and even some westerns. Bidding closes around 9:30 EST tonight. (Monday, March 1.)
Please, people, don't let Monique languish dateless and buried under piles of comic books. Buy now!
