Fluff Factory thread for 2/26/05 - Page 5

post #81 of 136
That has been happening to me too! :LOL I won this dress & AIO set: http://www.wahmchicks.com/item.php?i...a9a795f085edad and these wipes: http://www.wahmchicks.com/item.php?i...5782fb0741fb7b, so now my dilema is how many raffle tickets to buy! I never win raffles (although I do win alot of radio contests :LOL ) & we are broke now, but it's for a good cause & I can "pay myself back" next week! How many did everyone else buy?

Yes....the proxy bid system is screwy! It's canned software....what can I do!? LOL I have someone to fix it, but it involves takin' the site for about an hour During 'normal' times...it wouldn't matter....but during the event....can you imagine the withdrawl symptoms!? and the e-mails? Plus....what if it got screwed up!!! EeeeeeK!

So, what happens in a nutshell, is that when you have a proxy bid of say $50 and someone comes along and bids $40, it sends you an outbid notice, and then your proxy comes along and bids the next increment for you. And then the 'bad' thing is.....that sometimes at the end when you REALLY are outbid, it won't send the notice!

You can check your current auctions in your control panel. Sorry ladies!

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
O yeah, sometimes I forget the rampant sexism of those boys

Happy Birthday Young'un! (from a soon-to-be-42yo )

So throw the old boys out the proverbial window... lets go hedonistic :LOL

Oh dear, ladies!! This fluff factory is too much for me!! I mean I could rationalize my way to a stash for a hundred even before it was for a good cause...now I'm really having a hard time reigning myself in!! There are a couple of MM auctions I'm just over! anyone?! :LOL And then...the Luxe/TDD Kanji set! Really, the beauty of that set is almost too much to look at!!

Plus...I've won a couple of other things I bid on, thinking for sure I'd be outbid at the last minute! Fruit Salad, yummy, yummy!! I was high bidder when I went to bed, thought for sure I'd lose it, but DS woke up fussy so what's a girl to do, but check the computer!! So w/ less than a minute left I re-bid and it stuck! !! Sorry to the mama I got it from...but I promise it will be well loved!! I'm sooooo in with that quilt!! I'm having Kira make me one more fruit print dipe so I'll have an even six fruits in my yummy OV fruit salad!!

Wow! I got the Purple MM/Enchanted Nursery set!!! : I thought for sure I would be outbid. I put my bid in and then we went to the park and just got back, much to my surprise I had an email from Morwenna! Yay!!! Off to send money
post #89 of 136
I have won three auctions so far but I am fighting the need to win another I really really love the Luxe/TDD Kanji set and the MM/Baby Bloomrs coffee set.

But then I am thinking maybe I should go for something a bit more simple? :LOL Or nothing at all!!!

Step away from the computer. Back away from the fluff! Everytime DH comes in here I am glued to the computer "working"

I cannot wait to see all of the photos of this lovely fluff!!!!

I won TWO MM soakers, the chocolate/sky and the chocolate and roses nb/sm.....I didn't think I would win them both, just put in my max bids and left the house! :LOL

So if anyone wants one of them, I may be selling one....although they are both gorgeous....what to do, what to do.......

There e-mails are messed up. Everytime I place a bid I get an e-mail saying I was outbid, and I never have gotten one when I was really outbid.

Are there still raffle tickets left, I would have thought they would be gone by now. I bought 4, since it didn't look like I would be buying anything. Then I decided that this wasn't going for enough http://www.wahmchicks.com/item.php?i...d8f735ad9985f1 I bid just what I have in paypal, of stuff I sold so I could have some paypal. Now I just need to see if af is ever going to come, so I know what size to order. :LOL

That embroidery is yummy, Becky. A lot of the items she listed are really gorgeous! Congrats.

I think there are still some raffle tickets left. At least there were about an hour ago. Maybe the hyenas ate 'em all up already!
post #96 of 136
I finally managed to win something for a change! I got a Benjemuffins dinosaur diaper
There's still a few 1-day auctions getting put up today - so there's still hope!

I thought so, too. I just couldn't let it go for as low as it was going, and I had sold books and cards just to have money for the fluff factory auctions.
I just really don't need anymore wool, unless I have a surprise on the way and then I need everything, since I didn't cd until we were in larges.

Please, if anybody finds out who has it or has anything similar, let me know. This was the first piece of fluff that dh called beautiful and was excited about!
