journies begin with the first step

Idiot on line 1, Idiot on line 1....

let me start this all off by saying, I am an idiot. I was desperate to find the latest issue of SFX magazine last night and suddenly thought, hey, why not check ebay. And so I did, and lo and behold, someone WAS auctioning off the latest issue. Excellent I thought! So I bid, and immediately it gave me a message that I was outbid. Shoot, I thought. Then I did some more digging and found out that the reason I'm having such a hard time finding it is that since it is a UK publication, it's almost a month behind getting to the states. Yippie, I thought. So I planned on heading up to Barnes and Noble this weekend in Etown (where I saw last month's issue) and see if I could snag it......

and now for the idiot part....this morning I have an email that I won the ebay auction for the magazine...spincter says what?....I'm not sure what happened, either someone cancelled their bid on me or ebay crapped out last night, but I won it. So I think, damn and cool. Then I go to pay for the magazine, and having not noticed that the bidding price was in pounds, I am now paying $18.00 for a fucking $4.00 mag! God bless!...dumb dumb dumb dumbbbbbbbbbb.....Plus, I still don't even know if it's the August or the September issue that has Billy in it, so now I'm like, I just paid $18.00 for an unknown product, wonderful, just wonderful....

but, if it is the right mag, I've already seen one of the beautiful pictures and I don't care the cost. Hell, I may still buy another copy this weekend and give one to a needy friend who has also been driving herself mad looking for it....we'll see.....

In the meantime, fingers are crossed.
