In about 6 minutes, I'm going to place a bid on a cell phone to replace the one I've blogged about before. In this entry, for example.
Nowadays, it's become common to have to answer a call, hang up (since I can't hear the caller,) and wait for them to call back immediately.
There's only so much of this that people will continue to tolerate. And so I logged onto eBay to bid on a phone. Aren't I lucky that within 20 minutes of logging on and finding the phone I want, I saw that a nicely priced one was going to be finishing up.
4 minutes 35 seconds. Here I am blogging. There are two bids, and I don't want to have to pay too much. Y'know?
Okay, I'll let you know how it goes...as it is, my heart is beating and I feel like something huge is about to happen. (It doesn't matter what I'm bidding on...eBay does that to me. The game, I suppose. I just placed a bid. I'm the high bidder.
Argh. Maybe I shouldn't blog and bid at the same time. I was outbid. But I will not be thwarted. I must have a new phone. This photo was taken months ago...the phone has been dropped many times since I took it and things are just going from bad to worse. Must have phone.
Hm! Anybody have a Motorola V220 in good shape that you don't need that you want to sell me? Maybe I should try this route before I go back into this nerve wracking bidding frenzy...
