I’m feeling lots better today, thanksforasking. Turns out the antibiotic I’m on is the same one used for people who are exposed to anthrax. Although that makes me feel slightly strange, I guess it means this medicine gets down to business.
To change the subject, I’m a big fan of ebay in case I haven’t mentioned that about a million times. I usually use a third party sniping site to do all the dirty work and make my bids for me. In case you are not familiar with sniping, it is the way to get your bids in to ebay at the very last second, thereby winning (if you’ve bid enough money that is. You have to state the most you’re willing to pay up front and bidnapper bids incrementally for you.) It’s so much nicer than sitting around pressing the refresh button, hoping nobody outbids you. The service I use is called Bidnapper and it’s been great. I’ve used it for years. You have to pay, but if you use ebay more than a couple of times a year it’s totally worth it.
Last month I bid on my favorite concealer which retails for $28. I know. Rip off! (Although if you have hideous undereye circles like I do, you will pay what you must.) So I try to buy it on ebay (unused, of course!) Sometimes I like to talk on the phone while I do my computer stuff–I happen to think I’m brilliant at multitasking. But maybe not. Because I absentmindedly made this bid, which I just barely noticed this morning. Can you imagine what might have happened if the auction had been for something actually valuable?
Apparently I’m willing to spend almost $2400 on a nice concealer (Cargo Blu-Ray, shade 01, by the way) Fortunately nobody else bid that much and I ended up getting it for $19.38, so it was fine.
I would have one pissed off husband.
