Pinky Violence: Walls, Balls and Beard - A study in how the Bearded Movie Aficionado deals with early morning bidding

So I got in bed late last night - well, not late according to my usual schedule. But late for the plan I had made. I had to bid on something on Ebay, but it ended early in the morning. Around 5AM and then 6AM, and then 7:30AM, so my plan was to wake up several times, but hey, here I am, it's been an hour since I bid on the first of four items I want. And I haven't slept since. And I also got to bed around 1a.m, but did I go to sleep? No! - I got caught up in watching a silly Wednesday drama, as we call it in Norway, about a kid getting addicted to Porn, while my girlfriend was nagging about a massage. I think I fell asleep around 3AM. So I am not the happiest of people this morning, since I had to get up at 5AM, and haven't slept since. Probably going to fall asleep, watching a movie later.

I am tired as shit, but I can't go to sleep, I tried it - I laid in bed for 40 minutes, and after that much amount of time without falling back to sleep again, I just get pissed! Proper shitty pissed! But not pissed in the good drunken way, like many of you British or Americans use as slang - No! I got fucking angry! Wish I was drunk tough. But I don't think drinking in the morning is so healthy. And I don't have any beer left, just some J&B. And I'm not getting drunk before my girlfriend gets up - she's so used to seeing me drunk all the time, so it's probably good for her to see my sober at least in the morning before she gets to work! Right?
Hm, a bit pissed and rambling when I wrote that first part. But The Bearded don't edit. Well, I haven't got any sleep yet, but I'm making breakfast now, and getting ready to watch a movie.

Oh, the bidding? What is was? Well it was these beauties:

Assault! Jack the Ripper

Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion: Beast Stable

Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion: Grudge Song

Female Prisoner: Scorpion: New #701

I'm tired as hell, but it was worth it! Look at all the lovely posters I got out of barely no sleep at all! They are getting the star treatment, just as all my posters. But Beast Stable and Grudge Song is getting a very special place on the wall of my movie room. They are going to be sent to a frameworker and get BIG antique gold frames! I love it.
All of them are original Japanese posters.

30 sec. English lesson for today:

Using "pissed" in the Queen's English:

If you're drunk you're "pissed".
If you're angry you're "pissed OFF".

Obviously, the Yanks often use "pissed" without the "off" even when they mean angry. Bloody colonials.

Very nice posters. So, where they expensive??

All 4 together got a little bit expensive, hehe. I paid a little bit over $300 for all of them.
