I had almost given up hope on finding any more bargains on eBay. But for some reason, I dropped by the site and put “Buffy season dvd” on the search. Perhaps the idea was born from the angels whispering in my ear… I’m not discounting Divine Intervention here. The first thing that came up, I won. AND!!! At a damn good price.
I happened to find the complete seasons 1, 2, and 3 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on DVD for a NICE 45 bucks total with shipping included. I also won this item after seeing it for the first time only minutes before. I was watching it like a crack addict spying on an unattended open purse. I kept waiting and waiting for someone to swoop in and snipe me. I refreshed that page every minute or less until I had won the auction.
I chatted with Joe Davis about it and he didn’t seem to share the same amount of enthusiasm. I don’t know. Maybe he was distracted with actual work or something?
Kristina didn’t seem to share the same reaction. My sister Tina didn’t really kick over any buckets either…
I think… That I had… One of those moments of clarity.
How bad am I?
I’m turning back flips over spending money on something that doesn’t fit into the big picture… Meanwhile… Someone… Somewhere… Could be giving their last dollar for something to eat.
Should I be ashamed of buying something that I enjoy?
Who was whispering in my ear? Was it a little demon telling me to give in to MY pleasure?
I don’t know. Devils and demons aren’t really into providing anyone any pleasure. Unless it’s a monkey’s paw. Buffy will last longer than 3 wishes and without any tricks. There will be no freshly buried Joyce Summers’ doing the dead chick shuffle and slide up the driveway at midnight.
Through thick and thin, Buffy and Green Acres will always be there to comfort me. When I need a laugh, a smile, a trip back in time, or purposefully twisting the minds of my nieces and nephews, Homicide: Life On The Streets and Seinfeld will be at hand.
What are your favorite shows?
Leave your comments in the comments section. That seems to make sense.
I’m kind of bummed that Preston hates The Beverly Hillbillies. I’m just now thinking that he needs to see Get A Life. He doesn’t like the Star Trek series either.
You’re next, baby.
