And, on topic, did you all see the new *hot* black rainbow auction? That is the one I have been watching for since the previews went up. When I first saw it it was at $9.99 and I went to put in my bid and was immediately outbid. I didn't even get to enjoy being the high bidder for a couple seconds. That is so beautiful!
In my case, I used the email from WAHMchicks. And now the 2nd seller let me know how to pay... so I've paid up that. I am waiting to pay Shelly's until after I see if I win anymore TDDs. :LOL

Well, I had the stomach flu earlier this week, and dd came down with it on top of her coughing/stuffy thing she's had for a week already. She has not nursed real well, but she keeps nursing. Well, last night she puked up bile, and of course the docs office gave me bad advice to switch her to pedialyte that I didn't follow. We kept nursing, a little here, little there, hoping smaller amounts she could keep down. She kept a good bit of it down, but they wanted to see her anyways. She's going to be fine, just will take a while to get back to normal. And you should have seen the docs face when I told them I would not give my child pedialyte sweetened with splenda or nutrasweet (what the nurse said to do so dd would drink it) when my milk is so much better for her!! We may have to find a new doc now (*wink*)

Everybody else has spent all their money, right? I'm gonna get something sweet and blue and prescious today I think...

I've got my special Saturday morning running, er...um, stalking slippers on. :LOL
You definately need that for C, Virg!!!

O goodness... yes, that black rainbow puts so much beauty together.

And yes, its one I wanted to watch since the previews

And yes, I'll enjoy seeing it on another babe's bum b/c theres not a chance I can play in that game. :LOL

(still crossing my fingers on being married-into-Irish-luckiness though )

Not slow for me right now (although I'm at work... can't you tell )

And I love that soaker you just listed

I love that black rainbow set too, but I will just enjoy watching the bidding. It's a bit out of my league.

I am so at a loss for how to bid today. I keep going back but just can't make up my mind. I really want some TDD for a little birthday pick me up, but I can't make up my mind. Those two dress and legging sets would be perfect for dd, but which to bid on? I would hate to end up with nothing, but I just can't make up my mind..... :

And, of course if I worry about it too much, do decide I must have one of them, then I will probably lose it. Arrrggghhh, what to do?????

Um Nada... according to my computer, you're still winning the shirt.

Or is that not you?

And I have 4 hours to duel you (or others) for it. But I better pass. I'm winning some things that I might win...plus I've already paid for the blue set I'm totally ga-ga about. :LOL

HHhmmm... maybe I should go with the shades?

or the bag? :

(I'm almost done student teaching, so these fluffy auctions are a little too much for my weak and bedraggled resistance )

Did you never teach prisoner's dilemma?

Take'em both :LOL

You can do it... its OK. Honest... just put in a max bid and give'em your password. Its OK. Its for charity. Its a good thing. There are no losers. You're a winner!!

Now go win something!!

I can't believe I won another auction! Holy smokes! I've got my very first mosaic moon coming my way! I won the watercolors shorts!!! They are soooo lovely! I can't believe someone didn't grab these up!
post #71 of 136
LOL!! Congrats, Jen!! I was hoping you'd win! I had contemplated bidding on them, but I saw you were high bidder so I backed off. I'm happy though. I won the "Royal" shorts and the "Forests of Oregon" soaker!!

Enjoy your first MM!! You'll love it!
post #72 of 136
Oh Virg, I am way too much of a wimp for the prisoners dilemma. :LOL

But, I think I have a strategy. The problem is my first choice ends second, so how much should I bid on the second choice which ends first?????
post #73 of 136
Oh Heather, I just love you! LOL! I was drooling over the Forests soaker, oooohhhh so yummy! I'm really excited to be feeling the MM love!!! And really, thanks for letting it slide,lol!

Well, do we take the Platonic or Aristotelian approach? :LOL Plato would be impressed by the beauty, the ideals we striving for. I don't think money would impress him as much of an issue. Why DO we love to look at things of beauty? Aristotle would be impressed with the mergence of function and art. And then he'd yammer on about how to categorize it.

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

Yes, sometimes when i've put in bids it "claims" :LOL I've already been outbid, so then I just up it all. I guess thats b/c I run into someone else's max bid for a moment. Anyway, I've gotten some of those you've been outbid emails too... then I look and I'm still winning.

Go Nada Go!

The email notification system is all messed up. It sends you an outbid email as soon as you place a bid that outbids the current bid. :LOL

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
