A Date with Nir-The Psychic Poet

Just wondering, Phil, is this your joke? Or your friend's? Cause nowhere else in the blogoverse have I seen this yet, and it starts today, and it has no bids. I'm not dissing it, I'm just in an emperor clothes sale kinda mood.

wow, he says travel is at his own expense. i'm tempted to bid just to see if he actually comes all the way to new orleans. i don't know what i'd do with him once he got here, though.

And this guy's going to ship himself for free from Israel? I'm almost tempted to bid on this myself. (Not that I need the date..)

My friend sent it to me through AIM and far as I know he didn't set it up cavalier.

Well, since he's psychic he knew his destination well ahead of time and was able to get cheap tickets.

Let me be the first to say I would not care at all if this were a self-link. In fact, that would make it just that much more creepy-hilarious.

There could be problems with that.

Great buyer! Thanks for the quick payment! A+++++

This could play hell with his feedback.

(starts digging through old postcards, who knew there was such a market!)

Hmmm, he's gotten some negative feedback.

For his buying, not his poetry.

An Israeli psychic poet? What, does he do sonnets about spoon bending?

If there were justice, it would be for both. If he's psychic, couldn't he channel someone good, like Shakespeare, and take credit for it?

EBay will delete this auction in 5...4...3...2...

An impatient Israeli psychic poet? With a nice little cheesy flava-sava baby 'stache? And the pirate shirt is classy and sexy ($14.50 in the International Male catalog I bet).

Damn, I smell a new Fox series.

He misspelled "psychotic", as in "psychotic poet".

This may be a leap of logic but since he seems SO fascinated by postcards...are we at all sure that the pic he displays is not just another postcard and THAT is what will arrive, at his own expense with a rose and his autographed book? I mean, I can't imagine WHY that pic would be a postcard but it takes all kinds to make a whirled.

[Everyone hum along now, you know the words...]

I've got a date with a post-card...

watering the flower in my tox,
making it blosome,
leaving your kiss on my face,
making me more handsome.

I promise not to take things fast,
I don't want to cause your heart to blast.


I'm gonna steal that.

"what I should expect for our first date."

Surely he would know if he was any good as a psychic.

Don't want to be alone on Valentines Day?
Right, add insult to injury..

I was disappointed by the photo.

No matter how closely I looked I was unable to find an unexpected reflection of an antique kettle.

Romantic evening that I want to end on your porch
It's good that he has low expectations.

You'll close my eyes,
saying you prevented the sun to rise,
water the flower in my tox,
make it blosome,
leave your kiss on my face,
making me more handsome


I was going to fool around with this and make it funnier...but really it is funny enough as is.

Tox? blosome? handsome?

I'm buying my right hand some chocolate lube.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - there are worse things than being alone.

devbrain gets a belly laugh from me... fortunately I'd already swallowed the last of my lunch!

I'm working Valentine's night, doing caricatures. Not a bad way to meet lonely women! :)

I too am a psychic poet, and make this prediction:

His chances for a date
Are not that great.

Nir's Amazon lists ...

I find it incredibly funny that this romantic psychic poet has a list on Amazon of Kurt Russell's all time best movies

He looks like prince.

Maybe he was mixing up his eHarmony account...

Laugh it up, people...you know you've dated worse!

If only Kip Dynamite was on eBay.
I love technology, but not as much as you, you see...

Why would anyone give him negative feedback for bidding on an item, paying for it and then telling the seller to just keep it? Seems like a win/win for the seller.

Feedback left for others:
Stunner!!!!!!!!

Oh boy...

Looks like the fun's over...eBay cut off the psychic poet.

I wonder if he predicted that.

And I must say, he has....interesting....tastes in music. Though I may have dated people almost as bad as Mir, at least I never went out with a Celine Dion fan.

Finally, I am totally bummed that no one picked up on my extremely witty and apropos link to "The Gift" by Velvet Underground.
