Sorry for the hiatus in the blog awards. On the plus side, I passed my belt grading for karate last night. On the minus side, Byron has suspected cancer. He is booked in to the vet on Thursday for (hopefully) removal and cure. But we don't know at this point what's going to be involved; the vet doesn't know until he's gone in and extracted bits for testing. I suspect we are looking at a minimum of £400.

I haven't got £400.

UPDATE: thanks to the wonderful generosity of The Internet we should be fine now. Thank you all. Closing comments on this post now, so that if people miss this update they aren't still offering.

What I have got is lots of Collectable Stuff. So I'm going to make an offer here, oh internets. If I have any Stuff that you might want, make me an offer. Stuff is Stuff, but Byron is my baby, and my house is too full of Stuff anyway. I am willing to sell any of it to help make my baby better.

Things that I have which some of you might want to buy:
  • Ropey old Ford Ka that needs its brakes fixing
  • hundreds of CDs, including this Queen box set with all the packaging intact
  • Lots and lots of books including folio society stuff, and the unseen university editions of much Pratchett. Also lots of complete Sherlock Holmes's in various editions
  • hundreds of DVDs, including lots of Star Trek and Doctor Who - for example all the Trek box sets, all 4 series of Blake's 7, all the red dwarf, etc.
  • Lots and lots of rare/limited edition/etc. vinyl - 6 foot bookcase full of it
  • various action figures and things
The list is not exhaustive, but it gives you a flavour. If there's something you want, whatever it is, ask me if I've got it and we'll go from there - although checking the comments to see if someone else hasn't already asked might be a plan. At this point I am willing to consider most offers because it all adds up, but I need the money quickly, so you'll understand if I ask for bank transfer or cash over the counter only; no cheques or paypal.

Do feel free to pass the link to this post around, too.

Thanks.

You might want to also throw up a Paypal link.

Y'know. Just in case.

FWIW - £60 for the Blake's 7 DVDs?

Awwww *hugs* (((((((Jennie))))))) and ((((((((Byron)))))))

I ain't got much, but I've got something, and I'm close enough to pay cash, and I can't see you or Byron like this. What you got in the way of DVDs? You wouldn't happen to have either or both of I, Claudius or Boys From The Blackstuff, would you?

Lots of hugs for you all and I'm thinking of you.

Dodgy metal CDs? I could do with filling in some gaps in my collection: Foo Fighters/Blink 182/Limp Bizkit/Linkin Park/Metallica/Placebo might be good places to start.

Sorry to hear about Byron. I know how rough it can be with a sick animal and huge vet bills.

I would like to help, but I supsect being in the US would cause complications, and I'm kinda broke m'self at the moment, being on my 5th month of unemployment.

Though, it sounds like you have some COOL STUFF, so if there's any way it can work out, I will be willing to consider.

Give teh puppeh lots of pets for me!

Unfortunately this comes at the worst time for us to help (my pay rise comes *next* month, so we're completely out of money now, but will have more soon), but if you're still skint as a result of this *next* month we're more than willing to give you anything you need. Holly says to say she can sympathise as she had a dog with cancer once, too.
After the 6th of September, anything you need, just ask. No need to sell us anything in return.

delight: basset hound on back (basic doggerel)
From: [personal profile] delight
Here via [personal profile] innerbrat; I'm in the US, but I'd love to help your dog. I don't need to buy anything or get anything in exchange except perhaps a print picture of your pup. I'm a huge dog fiend.

But like I said, I'm in the US.

I have no idea how to handle the currency transfer to send you my spare $20 (which is all I have spare, or I'd send more) – if there is anyone willing to stand in as an intermediary so I can paypal them and they'll give you the money in GBP, I would be willing to do that. I want to be able to help. I don't think there's any way I can get funds overseas quickly enough, especially as mailing cash would take a week and be pretty useless.

Unfortunately, I'm living on unemployment benefits right now, so I can't really donate :(

I can (and will) send all my love, and healing vibes Yorksher-wards. We lost Bertie Basset recently after a nasty battle with lymphoma, so I'm sadly familiar with the situation.

Just seen this on fractalgeeks cross post on LJ. It doesn't look like anybody has talked Star Trek, if you have Next Gen and/or Voyager full seasons then I'd be interested. Let me know. w00hoo at yahoo dot com (note first two zeros in name...)
