There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

In other news: who wants to buy a giant Charizard?

A while ago, I put some plushes up on eBay. I was informed that two of these might end up worth a fair amount. Sonic and Tails are apparently passé these days, and their prices indicated as such - but still very impressive, given they're stuffed toys. However, if these people really intend to pay as much as they do for Rouge and Shadow, I will be amused - but shocked and depressed for humanity. Definitely depressed for humanity.

In other news, Nan is still here. I've got past the anger stage, and instead go for the better option: ignorance. Ignore she's in the room and act just like normal. Admittedly, me and Jamie can't talk as much because she eavesdrops and gossips, but it's obvious she can't deal with silence well, trying to strike up conversation about inane subjects with no success. It's really fun to hear her mumble to herself in despondence at how we're acting. It'll teach her for claiming Jamie's manipulating me into leaving for America.

It's really fun when you do what we did tonight: see her sleeping, ignore her and come in here anyway, posting on livejournal and checking email. I know it's a little harsh if you haven't heard the comments she's made, but if you had you'd be amazed at our resilience.

As I say, we can let these people know what I think of them and their inadequacies as I leave. At that point I will have had to be busy, organised and hard-working: something none of these have displayed in large amounts for years. I will not keep any more secrets between the family, like they all do. I will leave happy with someone I deserve, while they will remain with who they deserve. Whether they're happy or not depends on if they listen to a thing I say, like they usually don't.

Has anyone had any experience with international shipping companies? I keep getting told by my sister it might be cheaper to buy a cubic metre of space to ship all my possessions over to America, with the alternative being packing extra and paying the shipping charges Virgin will demand.

But then, when Nan disappears I can throw all manner of strange things on eBay. Posters, shoes, t-shirts, gum (in mint condition) and tennis racquets might end up on there. I really do have to stop thinking about simple old DVDs and games that can go on there, and think of how I can make this room as empty and hollow as I can before I go.

It'll be a fitting reminder for the family. If it wasn't for someone special, I might have ended up just as hollow.

Were you serious about the charizard?

Deadly. The bugger's been hanging by a cupboard door for a good year now. I'll be glad to be shot of him.

He's about 4 foot tall and a bastard. I'll take practically nothing for him - especially if someone travelled to pick it up.

I'm actually holding my face with excitement!

I was unfortunate to be born with the surname 'Charman', so you can well imagine the stick I got with the whole Pokemon craze. I do, however, love charizard! He's my favourite one.

How much did you pay for him?

I didn't pay much for him - he was won at a fair, in one of those "hit three pikeys with darts" games.

I haven't tried to sell him off: the prospect of dragging something to the Post Office that is so large that it'd need its own seat on a bus, truly frightens me.

If you travelled to pick him up - not too hard from where you are - I'd give it to you for £5. Happily.

I think my brother has one of those! Won him at Drayton manor a couple of years back, our dudes only half the size though.

Done! I get paid on the 29th, so next friday. Then alright?

I'm working six days a week, so that Friday would be a busy day.

So: option #1. You come to the games shop I work at (on the 29th I'll work from 2 until around 7) and you buy El Charizard, and I'll offer discounts on any games you fancy in the shop.

Option #2. You drive to where I live, on the Sunday I have off. More difficult as Nan hogs the household.

Okay: here's a reminder, in case the image of a giant Charizard was long forgotten.

Would you be able to find this abode in Enfield on Sunday at around 12? If so, I will pass my address on to you, via email. Which email address of yours should I use?

Arrg! It's monday!
