The Turquoise Star

19/03/09
Success, triumph, victory and so on. At last; I’ve received my turquoise star on e-bay. It’s taken five hard years of bidding, firstly on dial up and then eventually gazumping 8 year olds at the last second as I steam in swiftly with my average speed broadband. And I’ve done all this without ever donating a pound to charity, supporting local business or indirectly funding terrorism.
It all started with a pen you could write in the dark with and a dream of becoming the new Barry Norman and it ended with a magnetic puzzle and that all too common dream of the post arriving before 3pm.
So, I think a grand purchase is in line as I step over into the big boys club.

Here are my 7 choices~

1, Vhs video cassette player with a betamax copy of Cannon and Balls’ ‘Boys In Blue’ jammed in upside down. Buy it now only £9.99

2, 1st. Edition autographed copy of Terry Nutkins’ novel / cry for help, “Why do people who look like Gophers always have a good head of hair when I don’t”. 0 bids

3, Small Predator statue with missing arm. Buy it now price £114.97

4, Original ‘70 unboxed and undressed talking action man with boz eagle eye and only able to still say the phrase, “Action Man - twelve inches of plastic action at your service” 1142 bids

5, Used Gopherskin hairpiece on sale by Nutkins1066. 0 bids

6, Oversize novelty Russian military hat. Buy it now £3

7, Max Von Sydow. 1 bid

But as we encroach ever nearer to the scary industrial nightmare future as predicted in the likes of Bladerunner, Robocop and Terminator I see a world with all of the horror but none of the cool gadgets to buy and no devices to despatch ‘Skin Jobs, Cyborgs and Brian Dennehey ; at least not on e~bay and with the exception of a robot floor cleaner.

It seems that somewhere along the way Tomorrows World has lead us astray with it’s false promises of Hover Cars and a super computer powered with Einstein’s brain.
So, in conclusion, there’s nothing much I fancy on e-bay right now.
