The package has arrived! Though I was still asked to cough up some more dough for the customs people (the peeps who delivered it had no choice in the matter)
. I'm thinking, "Ok, no big deal...Just give me the package! NOW!" Hehehe. Now because of the very long wait I endured for this package to arrive the whole thing still hasn't sunk in. But the fact can't be denied I have one the original costumes my favorite actor John Goodman
used in the 1995 TV-movie adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire
. Wow. The Hollywood memorabilia arrived wrapped in plastic inside a big white box along with an envelope containing the Certificate of Authenticity, a black and white promotional picture and two newspaper clippings showing the actor in the said scene with Jessica Lange
wearing the suit that I won in eBay

The loot as it appeared on eBay.
This will be the first and last time that I'll be splurging on something this big a deal (a really huge deal in fact). This collectible was too good to pass up and like I told my good friend through e-mail, I can't be doing this once I get married so I might as well do it while I'm still able. Besides this is like an early Christmas and belated birthday gift to myself.
