"i'm not a virgin anymore . .

. . I just thought you should know". Yep, that's right. I am an EBay virgin no longer. Woo hoo and such! Rodrigo goes on there often to look up dork things. You know, computer parts and things like that. Me, well, I like to look at Hello Kitty, U2 and Incubus things, but I've only done that maybe two times in my life. Today I was talking to Brianna about the Littlest Pet Shop. She's really into this right now and has been for well over a year now. Rodrigo, a-hem, I mean Santa already bought her another play set for Christmas. She was telling me about the pets she wants to get. She wants the Panda bear (check. included in the play set), the monkey (check. included in the play set) and the sea horse (uh-oh. that elusive sea horse). When she started doing her homework, I went straight to the computer, went into EBay and found that darn sea horse. There were about 5 minutes left in the auction and no bids. So I placed one. I was the high bidder, then someone else bid. I bid more and it stayed that way until 26 seconds before it finished. The other person had the nerve to bid higher than me. All I could think was "Oh no she didn't". If I were able to swivel my neck, I'd have been doing that. It was sooooo on then. That sucker didn't count on the fact that I'm a fast typist. I placed the bid and with two seconds to go it was confirmed. A-ha! Take that! That sea horse is mine, be-yotch! (yeah, like I really talk like that) :P Uh, so much for the spirit of the season. I got really competitive for an eight dollar toy. Hey, but it was for my daughter and someone was getting in the way of that. You'd do the same thing, right?



feeling: too proud
listening to: Poe (Not A Virgin) <-- I got this song stuck in my head from my post title so I HAD to play it
