Why? Why? Why?

  1. Ok, so I'm normally broke--a professional writer with a little boy and hardly any time to play. But today, my wedding is nine weeks away, I'm way behind on paying for it, and these things keep happening:
    And Heyah:
    And ovah hyah:
    That last one had nothing to do with the bass being "lost or broken." Guitar Center got a bid on it on their own auction site, and cancelled the eBay proceedings. That's an Alembic Series 2, with case, for 20% of the price of a new one.
    Now before I go freak out completely, somebody tell me, please, does the universe have a really nasty sense of humor or did I make a huge mistake in going into a low-paying job I can actually tolerate? Why don't these beauties come along on the rare occasions when I can actually spend money?

    I'd love that Sad5
  3. Yep. Opening bid of $699, with no reserve. Two days from now, that pawnbroker's gonna check his auctions and $h!t his pants.

    If I had an Ebay ID, I'd bid on it.

    Every stinkin time i have money i cant find a bass i want to up-grade too,and whenever i dont have money there are a million and one basses that i would buy in a heart-beat.
    Its the way of the world,ever hear of Murphy's law ? it was modeled after my life,"anything that can possibly go wrong at any given time can and will".
    Like they say shiznit happens,"pray for the best,and expect the worst":p
  10. Paying is over rated. What can money do that a crowbar and a good set of running shoes can't? :D

    Are you gonna have an affair with a bass before you get married? BTW IMHO that Alembic would have looked busted when it was brand new.
