It's not about the house.

Last Day!

There's only one day left for you and all your friends -- and facebook friends, and enemies, and random people who hear you talk to yourself on the street -- to slug it out over who gets to own this lovely dragon! Bid on it here!

Current high bid $11.50! Plus $5 shipping!
Come on, people, it's for the children!  

It comes with a backstory about a certain gentleman's-C-student which is complete and utter bullshit, but I wrote it, so it's bound to be worth something someday. Of course, you don't get the rights to the story -- in fact, you don't even have to buy the twee dragon thing to read it. You can read it here and will be able to for probably ever. But think about it: someday your grandchild will be on Antiques Roadshow, and that gray-ponytail guy (who will apparently still be alive as some sort of Mars-Attacks, head-in-a-jar atrocity) will say: “the figurine itself is worthless, but because of the Erin Ellia provenance ... EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS!” Which by then will be the equivalent of about a buck and a half. But that plus George Clooney’s head in a jar still ought to buy you a cup of coffee, right? Besides, don't you want to hold this precious little moonbeam in your hand?

I bet it'd hurt like hell if you chucked it just right.
