Wow ... that's pretty amazing! And to think he used it as target practice ...
I know, right!? That's the part that kills me!!
I wonder how much damage he inflicted on that cup ...
I know. It's still worth a cool million. *shakes head*
Yeah, I TOTALLY need to find something like that under my bed. That would be way better than the current dead cockroaches & lint balls. :)
EWWW!! Omg. I hate cockroaches. Omg. *shudder, shudder, shudder*
Okay, sorry. I have a thing about bugs.
I want to find something cool like that under my bed too! Right now there's old sippie cups, theatre memorabilia and dirty clothes. haha
LOL...that's where I used to keep some of my theater memoribilia too! Especially movie posters...I had a TON of posters, and kind of rotated them.
Now it's all in storage at my folks house in MO.
Yeah...roaches SUCK. I also occasionally get these flying bugs in my house...I think it's some kind of beetle or something, but I DO know the mf's nocturnal, because they only seem to show up at night...it'll be about 10-11pm, and I'm in bed reading, and all of a sudden, I hear a couple weird "thuds" out in the hallway...and immediately think someone broke into my apartment. Then it gets quiet, and a minute later I hear the characteristic bug-buzz...and I hunt the mf down and KILL IT. And then I finish my panic attack and go back to bed. :)
OMG! I have the same damn beetles!!! I hate those pieces of scumshit!
Okay, sorry. I get really upset about bugs, and those bastards have made my life a living hell. Every time I see one, I have a panic attack, and they like fly right at me, because they know it scares the hell out of me. Jerks.
My favorite weapon of choice is the nearest large book, which lately has been Gregory Maguire's "Mirror Mirror".
And I totally hate them too. I haven't had one fly at me yet...though I did have one "conveniently" crash land near the bed so I didn't even have to get out of bed to kill it. Course...still had to get up to flush the bastard...
It'd be so much nicer if they just committed suicide FOR me. Ya know? It would actually be TOTALLY great if I just woke up one morning and found a little note scrawled on a piece of toilet paper laying on the back of the toilet, with "Goodbye cruel world, sorry we made your life such a hell" scribbled on it...and there were just a ton of drowned cockroach and beetle carcasses floating in the toilet.
I can't expect them to flush themselves for me. I mean, I'm no physicist or anything, but I don't think they have enough body weight to manage it. I'll be their Dr. Kevorkian, if that's what they need. :)
I adore you. =)
That's awesome. I really wish that were possible. That would make my day. I'd go into the bathroom, flush and be all happy.
LOL, thanks. Yeah...it feels pretty good to crack myself up. I think I may have to repost this convo in my own journal. That's good material--I could use that for a book someday! LOL
My parents love antiques and finally got tickets for Antiques Roadshow. Holy cow are they excited. They're all aflutter picking out which things to take. =)
Hey, the bullet holes might add to its value!
lol! Right? I think it was just an airgun though so probably no bullets, unless I'm confused about waht an airun is, which is entirely possible.
I wonder where his grandfather got it from.
I'm sending in all my random stuff IMMEDIATELY.
Interestingly enough, my dad is an antique dealer. He is also in major debt. And he has this house full of random stuff some of which I'm sure is worth good buckage. But is he selling it? no. he's just complaining about money LOL. HELLO DAD!
Hey, off topic - you don't have a karaoke or instrumental recording of "You're the Top", do you? I'm trying to track one down for a party on fRiday, I"m parodying it for a friend's birthday Roast. It's a longshot I know, but my accompanist fell thru and I'm asking everyone.
lol! Well the market for selling antiques isn't so good right nwo given the economy either, you know?
And I don't. :(
Have you tried Broadway share? You could even make a Broadway secret about it if you wanted. lol You're bound to get it somewhere.
nevermind i totally found it on amazon.com. YAY
I love antique road show. I'm a sucker for old things. too bad none of my crap will fetch me almost a million dollars
I saw that story this morning on Yahoo and just about choked. At least he didn't do any permanent damage to it. I always hate it when people are told on "Antiques Roadshow" that if only they hadn't altered a piece, it would have fetched ten trillion dollars. LOL
*goes to cabinet, checks cups*
that is pretty cool. too bad he didn't know about it earlier in life...
