Well, today was eventful.
I posted my first message on the Beckett message board. I'm trying to get people to actually come and read this blog, since for the moment I'm basically only writing to myself (not even my mother reads it). It's like a diary, and since I already know everything I'm thinking, it's not exactly the most exciting aspect of having a blog. The responses out there have been real nice so far. I'm not a big fan of message boards for way too many reasons to mention here but still, they've given me a warm welcome. I feel so fuzzy inside.
Next; I placed my first order on comc. Yeah ! I guess you're not officially in the hobby if you don't go on comc. Their common cards are a little too pricey for me, but they offer great shipping quotes (3$ flate rate) and you can view the cards nicely. And I can tell by the robot who sent me an email informing me that my cards were being packaged, that they are really nice people. I'll scan the cards I bought once I receive them, but I'm already excited. They're mainly inserts from the 90s I've been wanting for a long time, and there was a cheap Blue Jay AU in there, so I added it.
I was expecting a 600 blue jays card lot in the mail yesterday, but looks like I'll only be getting it on monday. I have no idea what's in it, but I'm missing so many that odds are I won't get too many duplicates.
I lead such an exciting life, it's actually scary. Hold still, my beating heart, cards are coming.
