I'd say put in a max bid for the 2nd and really go for that one if you can only do 1... then whatever is left from your max bid put into the one that ends first.
But really I'd say just go for them both full-on
I can't do the black rainbow set either, but its fun watching
Well, from Plato's perspective, if it furthers the search for truth then it would be justified. I'm not sure I have it in me to make that much of a rationalization today. :LOL I suppose I could argue that such beauty is the closest approximation of the ideal form of beauty in the phenomenal realm, and as such it should be cherished, and I would definitely cherish it (although dd will probably just roll in the dirt in it like she does everything else).
My only real rationalization is I am 38 years old today and I want it because, well I just do!!!
Aristotle probably wouldn't care what my rationalization is because I should be home making babies and cleaning the toilets so the real men can get on with the work of the polis.
: All this fuss over a piece of clothing is just evidence of my slavish, female nature. :LOL
