Are you excited?
In just a few hours, the 8th annual Bevboy's Christmas Tie Extravaganza starts! I have been receiving dozens of messages from folks telling me how much they look forward to this time of year. Every year I wonder if I will do this again, and every year, my 4.7 readers come forward and beg me to do it again. I don't get it, but I like to keep them happy.
I was just sifting through the ties I will be wearing in December. I add a couple every year. Some people walk up to me on the street and hand me cash in exchange for the tie around my neck, so they won't have to see it again. I just go to the store and buy another one just like the one I sold. Circle of life.
I sold off nearly the last comic I owned, this morning. I was paid... well let's put it this way, if I had never bought the things in the first place, I would be much further ahead financially than I have been by selling them off like this. I still have some graphic novels and a few collections like a good chunk of Don Rosa's Uncle Scrooge stories and The Far Side and Dilbert and several of those hard cover Peanuts volumes that Costco was selling several years ago. I will keep those mostly because I know they have little intrinsic value to them. From that perspective, they are even worth the paper they're printed on. Sad.
Anyway, I think I will turn in. Long, fun day ahead of me.
See you tomorrow, my lovelies.
