Got butterflies in my stomach

I just placed a bid on a live auction on eBay. I couldn't pass this item up...

It's a lot of money, though I can afford it. I doubt anything like this will be available again, or in this kind of condition, or this complete. I won't know if I've won it, however, until late tonight, after the auction has ended: I'll be heading for the airport right about the time the auction starts, and it's 3/4 of the way down the lot list. I'll check while I'm waiting at DTW, and may know then; if not, it won't be till I get home around midnight.

Of course, if I win it, I'll have to get some pictures of me wearing it, even if I'm not Bruce Boxleitner.

Ho-o-o-o-leeeeee shit.

I didn't win the TRON costume from the movie.

The opening bid was $10,000. The expected range listed by the auctioneers was $10-12,000. I bid $13,000.

It sold for $30,000. There's no way in hell I could have afforded that.
