IF I HAVE TO CUT IT OFF WITH A CHAINSAW I'M NOT GOING TO BE HAPPY

I've managed to resist the temptation that is eBay for a very, very long time. Tonight, after bidding on 2 Coach bags and a pair of pants (don't ask, I have no answer) and taking a gander at the many, many pages full of Moorcroft ceramics, DVD box sets, and BOOKS, MY GOD THE BOOKS, and various and sundry other things just calling my name, I managed to use my left hand to forcibly PUSH my mouse hand over to the signout button and press it...like that guy in The Evil Dead whose hand gets possessed and fights him. That scene cracked me up. At least I think it was Evil Dead. Not that I'd ever voluntarily see a movie like that, because I tend to hang on to nightmare scenes and regurgitate them late at night when I'm alone, so no scary movies for me, thanks. In fact, could it possibly have been a parody of The Evil Dead? I know I wouldn't have seen that movie. Hmmm...Does anyone else remember a movie about evil in a cabin out in the woods with a book, and a guy whose hand gets possessed and tries to kill him? What the hell was I talking about?

Oh yes, eBay. The possession theme is probably not a coincidence.

I went back again twice in the space of an hour "just to look." It all starts so innocently.
