I didn't know Exp.Date the Rat had won an auction bid. He's been quiet about it. Wonder if he's told his wife yet? :lol:

He is probably going to keep that quiet and the wife is going to wonder if why he is being so generous to her because if he is found out.Image

It wasn't anything big. Just a UK paperback copy of Hogfather with Michelle Dockerty scribbled in by some guy. I think his first name starts with T and last with a P I think. He was writing on everything it seems! :x It was for $65 and Kim is fine with it knowing that it was for Alzheimer's research and for the Librarian's cousins protection.

It did kinda shock me that I spent so much money on a PB book, but how many times have I done that and will do it. It was fun and for a good cause.

On a side note I dreamt of the Con the last night! I woke up thinking I was back my hotel room until I came crashing back into reality! :cry:

Can't wait for the next one. Hopefully I can work out going to the 2010 UK one! I can always have hope!
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?

I met Exp. the Rat when he was demonstrating how to play Thud in the game room.

By the way, we should all congradulate, or applaud, Exp. the Rat on his auction winning bid of $1,250 for an early copy of Unseen Academicals!

Either he really likes reading Mr. Pratchett's books, or he's really worried about alzhimers!

Someone else bought a second copy of this book for $1,500 at the official auction, but I didn't attend so I don't know who it was.



NONONONONONONONO!!!! This wasn't me! I just read this after posting the above. Like I said it was MY FRIEND JAY who won it!!! I wouldn't be allowed back into my house if I did that! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Nope, I just spent $65 and that was even too much for me. $1,200!!!! That would be a dream.

What I understood he has his own business/ and does odd jobs. He said that either his or his wife's parents have suffered from Alzheimer's and they always give big for charities for it.

Plus he said that it is all tax deductable! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oops.

I guess I mis-understood you in the game room. Two men, two books...

:lol: :lol: :lol: We would have had to call the paramedics if Doug had spent that much on a book.

I tried to bid on something, but the bidding was so fast and furious that I barely got my paddle up before it passed my limit.
