I confess. I finally did it. I bought an original with my own money.
I will probably make a very convincing argument that it was the fact I was awake at 4.30am and saw it at 6.15, and therefore I should not be blamed for my actions, but it's not true. It was just so amazingly and wonderfully awesome I had to but it.
I also bought a 6 book set with Artist's Edition the other day. Thank God I don't need to explain my spending to anyone else, but I'm behind in my collection and my sense of my own awesome-osity is fading.
