A couple of weeks ago, I was cleaning out y garage to make space for my tabletop games and homebrewing supplies. I came across a bunch of cool things and posted pictures of them on Twitter.
Two of the things I found ended up as eBay auctions to raise money for the Pasadena Humane Society: a Stand By Me DVD, and a crappy dented ping pong ball that I made Internet famous for two days.
The DVD sold for $1000, and the ping pong ball sold for $1135 (I KNOW RIGHT). The buyer for the ping pong ball was awesome, paid immediately, and posted a fantastic unboxing video that you have to watch right now:
The other buyer was … not quite as awesome. I won’t go into it, but I had to cancel the sale after a number of attempts to resolve a number of increasingly unreasonable demands. The good news is that the DVD has been relisted! Yes, you can now bid on this DVD that was living in my garage!
Anne and I are very close to our fundraising goal for the Wiggle Waggle Walk, and it would be awesome if we made it. We need your help, and there are so many of you reading this, just ten bucks from you will quickly add up to get us there.
I mean, how can you say no to this face?
I mean, seriously:
And, of course, the DVD auction (which I should add will ship to the winner with a bonus copy of Different Seasons that I also found after the auction was created)
