DEVASTATED

The unthinkable has happened. Instead of going into the Smithsonian Museum, or the NBC vault, some geniuses at Warner Brothers got to cleaning out the warehouses and they are AUCTIONING OFF THE FRIENDS COUCH! What a tragedy.
If I were rich and could buy this puppy, I would be the opposite of sad. I'd be thrilled. Because I'd be bidding like crazy on it. Can you even imagine watching an episode of Friends, parked on that couch? But unfortunately, as you already saw, I only won $100 in Vegas. I can't afford the couch.

I can't afford the paper mache frame from around the door (which should also be in a museum, honestly):I can't afford the living room artwork:I can't afford the bedroom artwork:
or the pickle jar kitchen utensil holder:...or any of the other items up for grabs, any of which I would bid on during the online auction on Wednesday, if just one of them were currently priced under the maximum credit limit of my credit card (thanks to absentee bidding option, the bids are already through the roof). Yes, I would max out my card for one of these. I know how ridiculous that sounds, but honestly. These things may seem like yard-sale fodder to some of you, but to be actually able to own an iconic piece of the set of my favorite, favorite, favorite television show? A piece of memorabilia from the 30 minutes of my week that I looked forward to the most for six and a half years? Something to forever represent the six people in my life that collectively did not change, that did not divorce, did not break up with me, let me down on a group project or die? What an unbelievable thought. I promise I'm not dramatizing. That show means THAT much to me.

Just in case you do have that kind of money lying around and want to know what else is up for auction: anything and everything from the Back to the Future trilogy, ranging from a DeLorean to the Sports Almanac to Biff's cane to costumes to the Hoverboards and more. Willy Wonka's hat. Superman's costume. Batman's costume. Judy Garland's gingham dress and ruby slippers and the Cowardly Lion costume from Wizard of Oz. A fake shark from Jaws. A Howard the Duck puppet. William Wallace's sword from Braveheart. Forrest Gump's running shoes. Wilson from Castaway. Tobey McGuire's Spiderman suit. Will Ferrell's Buddy costume from Elf. Brad Pitt's Lt. Aldo Raine costume from Inglourious Basterds. Kristen Wiig's bridesmaid dress from Bridesmaids. Yoda puppet from Empire Strikes Back... you name it, they've got it. I want to buy all of this stuff and put it in the garage of this house.
