Thought I'd give this another try. :wink: I have lots of Xena Warrior Princess collectibles going up on eBay here.

Thanks! :D

Excuse me for asking, but who is Xena Warrior Princess?

I've just added a US 1st edition Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, along with some vintage figurines. :D

Pooh, Xena was a very campy show that was on over here several years ago. More info here.

From Wiki about Xena;

"Occupation: Warrior for good, formerly Warlord and Destroyer of Nations."

So a bit like Sir Lancelot in the Holy Grail (Monty Python) when he kills everyone at the wedding party by mistake then tries to apologise.

Or a bit like George W Bush trying to justify the complete and utter debacle of the last 8 years :P

Oh! She's also a lesbian icon!

:lol: Well, actually... the idea was just to have the selling/trading/giving away posts here. So we only got as far as one. :lol:

What if there were a button that said on it "Don't whatever you do push this button, it will cause the whole world to explode."

Most UU wizards would push it to see what happened.

Writing "No digressions" is obviously going to make certain people (like me) digress.
If you hadn't have written "no digressions", I wouldn't have digressed. :lol:

:lol: So there!

What you need Tony is a button saying DO NOT PRESS/DIGRESS which when pressed lights up to say PLEASE DO NOT PRESS/DIGRESS THIS BUTTON AGAIN

Being serious a moment guys. The reason I said no digressions was that if there are lots of posts then the item being sold gets lost and it makes it difficult for anyone wanting to purchase the item to find it again. I digressed because I didn't realise it was this thread.

Maybe we should lock this thread and if anyone wants to post an item on it they can PM Jason or myself.

But seriously - can we not digress on this thread please.
:)

Tony.

THIS IS NOT A DIGRESSION

By the sound of it this has happened before.

My apologies I didn't know, I'm still a newbie. :oops:
