IQ’s Obsession… Ebay!

Nothing has really changed since I last posted. I am still very much obsessed with Mr Hudson. I think it is possible that my OHD (Obsessive Hudson Disorder) is gradually getting worse.  I did meet him on 5th May 2010 at Koko in Camden, it was a mission of mine that I was so pleased to complete with success. I did get to stand centre front row although I would expect to have done so considering I arrived there at 11.30am; the earliest I have ever queued for a gig. It must be love! I will be seeing him again on 15th June and hopefully 4th July (providing I get my hands on  tickets for the Wireless Festival).

You must be asking yourself, why is she going on about this bleached blonde guy? What has he got to do with Ebay? For the past week I have raided Ebay like a bitch! I have searched under ‘mr hudson’, ‘mr hudson and the library’ and even ‘ben hudson’ to come up with a list of items being sold on ebay, from rare promo CD’s to signed photos or posters. If I am honest, there isn’t all that many collectibles of his to be sold or bought. However, I have realised how his popularity is slowly increasing. Especially with his ever encroaching U.S release for Straight No Chaser, the popularity will thicken rather rapidly with more U.S exposure. Most items are fairly cheap and I haven’t spent all that much. But to bid or buy something with a click of a button because you already have paypal linked to your bank account is… well… dangerous! It will go from “it’s only £1.99 plus postage and packing” to “it’s only £199 plus postage and packaging”. If you EVER hear me say such things, I give you permission to reset my ebay password and shut down my account! Plus, the only thing stopping you from paying or not paying is a ‘commit to buy’ button. Ebay should come up with new measures to help you think a little more rationally when buying!
