for force is (still) strong in the room...part 4

Monday, March 29, 2010 |
i went to d.i. looking for a few finishing touches for nate's re-do bedroom. i really havent spent that much. most of the moeny was spent on spray paint.
well, i found this. it really doesn't look like much and i didnt know what to expect when i opened the box. all i can say is that i dont think whoever got this back in 2000 ever opened the box. because it looked just like THIS, with everything still inside. (including the gift card, which i am certain is expired by now) and instead of pay the $29.99 that is the online price, i paid....
$3.00
yup-90% off of the online price.
but not quite enough to try and sell it for a profit.
at least not yet.
so i did what i always do...got out a can of spraypaint.
i painted a frame black and put this actual strip of the film in a frame. i wish i had a better way to display it. but i dont want to ruin it, incase i need to pawn it someday.
the boys thought i was way cool.
and i will let them keep thinking that way as long as possible.
