3.2 second bid


My at work to-do list is so long, and that’s only the stuff on the top of my head! I guess that’s what happens when one is off sick for two days in a row. At least it’s FRRRIIIIDAY and best yet? Payday!

Remember how I talked about Ebay being pure evil? It’s okay, I have decided that I am putting a limit on items that I want. If I really wanted something that bad, I would have placed my bid like everyone else does — 3.2 seconds before the bid ended. Sneaky sneaky people. I ordered two shirts from two different ebay sellers and the one that I thought was going to be too small, fits perfectly fine.

My ebay auction is still going on until Monday afternoon. Would anyone be willing to buy from an ebay seller (ahem, me) that has zero feedback from selling anything? I have a few positive feedback from purchases, but not many as I’m only now getting used to working the whole thing. If it doesn’t end up selling I may give it away on here!

It’s this Lululemon Run: Race Tech tank top in size 8, so it’d fit a person Med/Large.

On my first top (that I kept) I asked the woman to not charge me much on shipping, coming from Florida. She estimated $9.00 shipping. I asked her to drop it to $5.00, but she said she shipped a package “to Canada” and it cost her $8.75. Well well well, when my package arrived the price on the sticker said $2.30!! What a jip. I was disappointed, but not in my top! My top is SUPER cute. Ya?

I won these Lululemon Empower crops, only because the highest bidder who outbid me again in the last 3.2 seconds couldn’t pay for the item so I got a second chance. If only there were a second chance on wedding programs that I have absolutely no use for that looked so nice, but were ridiculously priced! The crops haven’t arrived yet, they’re coming from British Columbia.

I think I’m obsessed. At least I’m only spending my paypal money? So much for No Buy Month…not that I said I was going to do it for March, but still.

Random thoughts

  • Ebay is bad. It makes me SO anxious as to what I’m bidding on that I refresh the auto-matic countdown every few minutes to make sure that I’m still signed in, and I’m still the highest bidder. I don’t want to lose! I hate it when people bid with 14 seconds left, and I can’t re-bid because I’m slow. I hate ebay. Also? Why do my hands sweat?
  • I read a lot of websites that I subscribe to via RSS through gmail subscriptions. I read a lot of websites, but I cannot comment on most of them as they’re usually blocked at my workplace. I often forget what sites I have to visit in the evening, so I can comment – if I’m feeling like a keener, I e-mail myself the URL + comment I want to add lol. So it’s not that I don’t read your website people! I just can’t comment, because my brain is all over the place in the evening and really don’t want to log in!
  • I’m still on my winning streak with another win from Jeanine’s contest! Ow ow, keep’em coming ladiiiies.
  • Occasionally, I break out – rather than going to a dermatologist, I found the best acne treatment at Shoppers Drug Mart. Anything that has Benzoyl Peroxide = works wonders over night!
  • I like it when it rains outside, or when the snow is fresh on the ground, and I look in my rear view mirror, to see my tire marks on the road.
  • I also like stepping on fresh snow, and then turning around, to see the tracks I made.

Don’t forget that you still have 6 more days to enter my smashbox giveaway.

This could be trouble.

I recently found out how to work ebay. Don’t laugh!

I don’t think it’s a good thing, that I know how it works now. It’s pretty identical to etsy — the homemade place where I have been buying clothes, and Christmas presents for the past two years. Ebay is exactly the same, but etsy is a lot more user-friendly to navigate.

On my first purchase, I did the “buy it now” as the auction wasn’t available. I’m glad I did it, because I didn’t like the stress of knowing people are willing to pay more than me on a certain item.


This gorg, lululemon “Run:Race Tech” tank. It’s coming from Florida. Neat huh? I’m currently bidding on two things.

Ruehl white purse (is Ruehl going out of business?):


… and these Lululemon Run Empower Crop II’s (yes, the same one’s just a different color!). I think I’m losing this one though. The people need to understand they can just order them online, right now. For LESS than what it’s going on ebay. Tsk tsk tsk.

ebayI’m not willing to go over a certain amount of $$$ dollas, which I like. I don’t have to keep checking back and bidding. I’ll know if I won, if I won.

Have you ever used ebay for buying or even selling? I think you could make a few bucks here and there. Especially if you’re a Lululemon addict like I am. I could buy all the things in the loot section and then go and sell them on ebay — new with tags for double the money. I’m not that interested in doing it though. It’s silly what some of the stuff sells for or even what sort of stuff even goes up on ebay, like a free life insurance quote.
