Garage Sale Weekend #1

Generally, community garage sales are where it’s at. And by “it”, I mean tons of vintage video games, being sold by unfortunate, oblivious souls that have noooo clue that the little cartridge they’re selling for five bucks could be sold online for 500.

But, there are days when such endeavors are a complete bust. Last weekend would be a prime example of such a bonerkill-esque weekend. Not only did I receive an insult from a stranger with a cowboy hat, the only “treasure” I walked away with was this:

Was it even worth a dollar?

Ha, probably not! But like I’ve said before, the chances of me selling my collection are veeeeerrrrry slim. Still, it’s fun to confer with good ol’  eBay ever now and then.

So now, let’s get to that insult I mentioned earlier. As I was checking out a booth (which had jack-shit btw) I noticed this older gentlemen in a cowboy hat kept glancing over my way. A little awkward, but whatever. After deeming the current booth had nothing to my liking, I started walking away when…

“HEY! Do you know you have the Miley Cyrus look going on? I bet you get that a lot!”

Oh, THAT’S what you’d been wanting to tell me, Mister Cowboy hat.

With an awkward laugh, I told him yes, I have been told that I look like Miley Cyrus before. In fact, my boss’s children call me Hannah Montana everytime they see me, and some random kid at E3 told me that I could me Miley’s twin.

God help me.


  1. Unlike you, I don’t think Miley Cryus has the guts to walk around town with a Phurba, which makes you far more awesome than she is.

  2. I’ve never thought you looked like Hanna Montana before. But now that you mention it (or at least the cowboy hat dude) I guess there is a similarity. No matter, I’d never read a Miley blog, but I am reading yours so that makes you cooler.

  3. Ah, I remember always garage sale hunting with my Mom on the weekends in Oregon, this was back in the SNES days and no one put video game stuff out.

    Here is my Art student diagnosis of your face compared to Miley Cyrus. you both have prominent baby cheeks which leads you both to having a prominent nasal labial fold. A similar jaw line. Britts chin is a little wider while Mileys Jaw is wider giving Miley the more oval shaped head.You share similar hair color, wig makes it -1 for Miley +1 for Hanna Montana. Miley’s eyebrows are trimmed a little thicker than Britts.
    Where you two diverge is in the lips and nose. Britt’s upper lip is thinner than Miley’s and your nose has a slight concave curve to it.
    oh and the beauty mark. So yeah take that Mr.Cowboy, Anatomical knowledge and comparative reasoning wins again!/whiteknighting

    eh fuck it, videogames beats disney channel any day of the week.

  4. To expand on what the others said, I bet Miley Hannah doesn’t have a super-cool woman cave filled with badass gaming goodness! Therefore, you are way more awesome. :P
