The First Microwave Ever Made gets turned into a Diorama and bARTer Sauce is BORN!

Microwave Diorama Love Tester

The First Microwave Ever Made wasn't traded for the Love Tester. IT WAS TURNED INTO IT!

Amazing but true!

No pictures of the long and complicated conversion process survived the long and complicated conversion process.

Here is the story as I lived it:

Rhiannon trades me the First Microwave Ever Made for the Dorm Fridge

Thumbs up for mini fridges!

My friend Rhiannon traded me THE FIRST MICROWAVE EVER MADE* for the dorm fridge so she could use it in the play that she has written and will direct.

She said the fridge would be motivational for her because now she'll have to do the play or stare at that damn fridge until she does. I like the way she thinks.

But as I said, she did trade me the FIRST MICROWAVE EVER MADE*! And believe me, I know it gets your juices going.

Mike trades me D&D books for the 80's buttrock guitar

Guy Waving

It is with great pleasure that I announce I will officially trade the black and red butt-rock guitar for the set of first edition Dungeons and Dragons books.

Now I've never played Dungeons and Dragons myself, but that's not to say I don't have enough nerd in me to want to. I've played Magic the Gathering though where similar phrases I'm sure can be heard:

*I'll attack you with my Air Elemental for 4 points.

Darren gives me a paraglider for two pairs of boxing gloves and a digital camera

Man Wearing Backpack With Paraglider

This trade has requires some back-story.

Many months ago I found out that my boss was in a band.  I found this out because I have access to his Outlook calendar and when I scrolled past one day I saw an odd entry called: JAMMING.  Now I thought it was odd that he spelled Jammin' with the G, but I also found it odd that he could be leading this double life without anyone knowing.  So I promptly summoned over the rest of the staff to stare in wonder at the mystereous entry.

Jacob gives me two pairs of boxing gloves and a digital camera for my "laptop"

So, to recap, I traded my self-proclaimed "moderately crappy laptop" to Jacob for two pairs of boxing gloves and a digital camera.

Jacob was very interested in trading for the laptop - the most interested of anyone after actually reading the description of it -- but I guess any laptop is better than no laptop.
If you saw his Myspace page you'd see why I might have been surprised when a 19 year old white kid from Lynnwood showed up...but then my rapper trivia knowledge is severely lacking.
