eBay Is Going To Be The Death Of Me

i've been spending quite a bit of time
on eBay UK recently 'cause i'm finding
for a really good pair of boots since
it's raining EVERY morning and my
Chucks are really really trashed ):
causing my feet to be really bleargh.

and since i'm too lazy to go shopping
(what a surprise, i know.)
and i don't really have a sensible voice
to tell me not to simply buy things
to go with, and no fun person yet
so i'm shopping online!

i found this really good deal yday
(on UGG boots summore,
the ones Cameron Diaz wears!)
and there was 5 hours left so
i felt pretty confident that i'd win..
but last minute i got an email saying
that i've been outbid!
(if you've watched *that* W&G ep,
you'll get what i mean okay)

in the last 2 hrs the price went from
1.05pounds to 55.60pounds!
everyone was just frantically bidding
and bidding nonstop >.<
i bet lots of them in the end went
waaaay over their budget in the hype
*just* to get the satisfaction of winning.

but hey, i have some self-control
so i gave up after awhile and watched the war.

whatever la.
i'm just going to endure the rain
and wear wet shoes until my feet fall off.

today was one degree(s)
*one degree/degrees? i dont know!
so haha to you people sweating and
turning on air-con when you read this!

I think that's how ebay works, a group of people see something they assume no one else but they would want. They wait to bid then are shocked when they see the item price jump 10 fold a few seconds before the bidding ends.

You should all film your faces. It'll be a priceless watch. :)
