Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

Special OGHC Auction: Grandma's Copy of Fatal Frame II

Grandma is selling her copy of Fatal Frame II: The Crimson Butterfly on Ebay. She signed the cover and made it look all pretty and everything. You regular readers know there is a bit of history with this particular copy of the game. That's why, in the interest of eliminating all bad juju from the house, the Canon Optura 20 camcorder, the one that spit out Video 7 before becoming dark, is included in the auction. I figured, well- the damn thing doesn't work, or at least I can't repair it the way I repair still cameras, so... why not? The auction has a starting price of $1.00 and no reserve. That's how we roll here at oghc.

Here's the auction! [long haunted game back story within Ebay auction for you folks]

Grandma's autograph on the game reads:
This game scared the shit out of me
Barbara St. Hilaire
"Old Grandma Hardcore"

--The sale of the game and the camcorder (it's a package deal) will go right into our Great Grandma Camera Campaign fund, so- it's like donating money and getting something cool for it! Rock on! More stuff coming today!!!--

    Damn...it's already at 50 and it has 6 days left. If I spent like 200 bucks on a game signed by an awesome grandma; explaining that to my parents may be tough. "You spent it all on what?"

    :D Hauk- you know we think your awesome! Don't you worry none bout no credit card!

    Brandon- Back in high school I once spent $800 on an L-shaped desk that wouldn't fit in the house, let alone my room. That was a fun one to explain :) I hope the donations don't get out of hand, if it's $50 now (that's a good price I think) then we may approach the $200 mark close to Saturday. The only reason it's such a long auction is because we're going to be off the grid for a week (camping.) And I didn't want the auction to end while we were gone. I'd like to take care of whoever wins the auction so they know it isn't a scam or something.

    I have a feeling that the price is going to jump up pretty soon. A game signed by Grandma? Worth a million bucks, I'd say! If anything, some gaming museum should buy it. xD

    OH MY GOD!!!!! I WANT that game! Duuuuuude, I wish my last employer hadn't been a psychotic bitch that drove me to such stress that I couldn't keep food down for 7 weeks causing me to quit and be sick for another two months...sorry. too much info, I know.

    Cos, I totally could've payed a shit load for that game! It would be a priceless gem to me.

    *sigh*

    As God as my whitness, if I get that job at Starbucks this monday, and I get paid before that auction ends...it's going DOWN!! And it will be mine!

    Ebay has revolutionised the attitude of millions to buying on line. Yet, perhaps not surprisingly, the vast majority of material online is all about selling. Not surprising because that is where the money is made.

    In my own little way I am trying to redress the balance. Please take a look at my ebay buying blog ebay auctions and let me know what you think
