help a girl out?
Are any of my esteemed US peers willing to help me out on an eBay auction pretty please?
I'm just DESPERATE for a copy of the Vertigo Tarot deck, as a character from the Vertigo Universe is the inspiration for my screen-name goldie. However they only come up uber-rarely, and in this auction, he's only posting to the US. I've emailed him to no avail. Meanie.
So is anyone keen to help me out by acting as address proxy? The auction ends in 13 hours from now (between 6 and 9am US time), so please, let me know asap!!!
I'll send you vegemite and Tim Tams in return...

I've got an ebay account, even though I've never bid on anything there (I buy books thru half.com - an ebay company). I could do it for you. How high do you want to go? It's at $50 right now (or thereabouts).
If you need, I can do it. Just let me know! You know how to get me!
P.S. I'll do it if you promise NOT to send me vegemite!!
Thanks guys! Teresa is going to bid for me (thanks hon!), so now all I need is finger's crossed from everyone that it will be worth it - about 3 years ago you couldn't get one of these sets for less than $200 on eBay, but this isn't the collectors edition, merely the limited edition *aheh*, so hopefully we'll get it for less.
The bid is in... fingers are crossed!
*Crosses Fingers* Good Luck - Really hope you get it. It is a Beautiful Deck - one of my favorites!!
thanks babe. I didn't know you had it :D. Yay! Someone who understands!
Yep I have a bunch of Tarot decks - but I love reading the Vertigo Deck the best. I think because I read the comic (Oops I just let my nerd slip out) and "know" the characters in the Major Arcana - It gives me a little more insite than just the actual meaning of the card... Ya know - sometimes my geekyness even surprises me! (the best part about my deck is I found it at a garage sale for like 2 bucks!)
Really. Well. You learn something new every single day. :) :D
As Ev would say, we're showing how big our geek is ;).
Let's not even mention our ~other~ obession here *looks at her sorting icon*.
And I may just have to take you for 50 hit points for snagging that deck for 2 bucks ;P
I'm not familiar with the deck or the comic but I thought the cover art looks great. I'm one of those old fuddyduddies that has the first deck s/he ever had, and uses it faithfully (uh, religiously?)... I'm afraid to buy another one because I don't want to piss off the one I already have. I KNOW you know what I mean.
Oh man! I totally missed the chance for Tim Tams! Groan!
Well, did you win the auction?
YES! We won! I'm so excited. Teresa and I rock the house *wooot*.
actually I do understand what you mean Rose *grin*. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if someone else gave you some cards as a gift? maybe then they wouldn't get shitty? I own over 10 decks now, and read with three. if you treat them all equally, they don't seem to get pissed off.
Wait... wait... wait... Your name is not Goldie?? I feel... betrayed somehow. lol
Lori, I've been lying to you all! *sigh* my name really isn't goldie. I know, I know, I should be punished severely. but how can you punish me for not wanting to use my real name online? Especially when it's Marj Simpson?
Only joking. Marjorie is only my middle name ;).
