    Hey all, as most of you know by now, I'm on a simplification kick. Part of that involves divesting myself of most of my berry.stuff, and one thing I hate to see go is this beauty of a powerhouse. I affectionately refer to her as the "Big Mamba".

    Ever have those days when you're hammering out a bunch of emails, txting, BBM all day, making calls, driving via GPS, syncing via BlueTooth, playing games, avoiding work, working, etc...all on your Bold? Ever run out of juice at about 4PM? Yeah, I know what it feels like; I used to do that too, until I got this baby. I would either strap it in as my primary battery or have it in my bag as backup; either way, those worries were history. As a primary, I could power through about 2.5-3 DAYS without a recharge, if you can believe it. Yes, on a Bold. Yes, on 3G. None of this, "I've gotta get a Rogers Bold or download me some MFI so I can debrand this sucker so I can lock it on EDGE to conserve my battery" stuff anymore. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Then I got the big mamba, and the t-shirt became a....well, whatever t-shirts become when they....well, nevermind. The point is, I didn't have to worry about power anymore.

    Saunter on over to Seidio's website and they'll hit you up to the tune of $65 + 6 or so for shipping + tax if you live wherever they are (texas?), making it at least a $70+ investment. Yep, that's what I paid. Yep, it was worth it. MORE than worth it. Now I'll save you over twenty bucks and give you the same experience. Just drop a fitty in my PayPal account and not only will I absorb the PayPal fees, I'll even give you FREE shipping! Now who doesn't want something FREE these days? I know I do! And believe me, free love isn't! (I have three kids to prove it) But I digress...

    Yeah it's late, and I'm rambling. The only way to get me to stop is to buy this dang thing. Because you know if you don't, tomorrow I'm going to throw in something totally worthless like a used sim card or something. I'm serious. You can consider that a threat.

    It's late and I'm way, way too sober. I love you CB Nation!! Thanks for the Luv and the space!!

    -Eric

    Oh yeah, here's the photo.




    NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS AD. HOWEVER YOU CAN BET YOUR BOOTY WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON SOME CHIcK-FIL-A, SOME CHICKENS BETTER WATCH THEIR....WELL, YOU KNOW....I'M GONNA GET MY FRYER ON!

    Sweet! Aight BastetBB, just for you! What we have here is not one, but TWO rare (collectible?) VERIZON/Vodafone sim cards! These are NOT sold in stores! In all reality, you can order them from Verizon, but they will charge you $25/ea for them. That is $50 worth of sim cards!! All included for the same low, loW, LOW PRICE!!

    Think about it this way - it's like getting a FREE battery!! With FREE shipping!! That is what a great deal this is; just doubled the value. Wow, I even amaze myself!

    So there you have it, the deal has been sweetened, now how can you possibly pass it up? Sorry for the image quality on this photo, blame it on NoKiA and the fact I'm away from my beloved Nikon at the moment.

    Very tempting. I just looked at these the other night, I just don't like the battery cover with it. Now if it had the leather backing as well. oooooo

    Tell ya what Ausch, if you buy it, I'll hot-glue a piece of faux-leather to it for you. How about that?? A CUSTOM JOB!!

    Man, what an offer!! Or, I could send you the battery without the cover - that would be fine with me too.

    Now Bastet, as for bitchin' about the sim card offer (to anyone else reading this, it happened via PM), it's exactly what I threatened in the original post. HOWEVER, if this isn't gone by 9PM Pacific Time (+/- about 13 hours), I reserve the right to add on yet another something pointless and utterly less or more attractive.

    You do realize, sir, that one man's trash is another man's treasure. Or vice versa.

    Thanks all for looking and responding. This is great, just great.

    Well, I am intersted in your trash, BUT I cannot tolerate being called sir and and dude in the same day!!

    Do you know nothing of Ancient Egyptian Deities??? Bastet is clearly female!

    I could probably transfer the money immediately, upon apology.

    Ah, offers payment without request for apology...

    Gentlemen I think we have a winner

    Aha, wellllllll I still wouldn't mind an apology, just for the heck of it.

    Crap! We clearly have two winners, unfortunately for Sir Dude Ms. Bastet Lady, to whom I extend the deepest of apologies, the payment offer was made - sans strings - by ausch first. He (I'm making another assumption here) also sent me 3x PMs in that same timeframe; not that it had any bearing on it other than I read those first before I saw this little exchange here in the forum.

    So, assuming he (apologies if ausch is a she) dumps the $ into my PayPal account as promised, this big mamba is heading East of MI.

    If ausch doesn't pay, however, Bastet has first right of refusal.

    Thanks everyone for another fantastic time on the CB Marketplace Merry-Go-Round!

    To further my case and deepen my apology, please allow me to enlighten our readers to a bit of history on Bastet:

    In Egyptian mythology, Bast (also spelled Ubasti, Baset, and later Bastet) is an ancient solar and war goddess, worshipped at least since the Second Dynasty. In the late dynasties, the priests of Amun began to call her Bastet, a repetitive and diminutive form after her role in the pantheon became diminished as Sekhmet, a similar lioness war deity, became more dominant in the unified culture of Lower and Upper Egypt. In the Middle Kingdom, the cat appeared as Bastet’s sacred animal and after the New Kingdom she was depicted with a woman with a cat’s head carrying a sacred rattle and a box or basket.


    Now, in an attempt to make this post relevant, payment has been sent by ausch (thankyouverymuch), so Mods if you would kindly close this thread it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks again,
    -E
