Back in the late 70s, while waiting for the new Star Trek movie to come out, I watched Battlestar Galactica. I also subscribed to Starlog Magazine. One one issue, had to be in my Junior year, I guess, there was an ad for a replica Colonial Warrior jacket. I don't remember how much it cost, I thought it was like $20, but my cousin who also bought one thought it was $60. I wore it to school and I wore it to college until I outgrew it. For tewnty years it's been hanging in my closet.

Every once in a while I would take it out, gaze at it and get all natsukashii, as they say in Japan, or nostalgic about it.

Well, I put it on eBay last week.

I was mildly excited when the bidding first started. The opening bid was $19.99. Yesterday, I was excited: the bidding has hit $42. This morning, though, I'm greedy. The bidding has hit $50!

I want more! Bwahahahaha!


Come on over to the auction and buy back your childhood! Daddy's car needs a new pair of shoes.

You need a new pair of shoes to replace your current official Starfleet-issued boots, right?
