Wichita

So, this morning I'm sitting on an auction to buy this watch, and it had been bid up from its starting price of $.02 to about $10.50 or so. I wasn't too worried.

Then I checked and suddenly all bids had been retracted!!! It stayed that way until the last few seconds. I put in my bid... and got it for $.02 (plus S&H)!!! Squeeee! I'm so happy. *doing the dance of eBay glee* (Because, you know, I really NEEDED another watch... /sarcasm)

I am occasionally amazed, though, at how many people will run up an auction on some items early, when an identical item is sitting without any bids in another auction (this happens a lot with jewelry). Don't they watch them all, just in case?

I finished my review for the week (Burrito Deluxe), I'm having my taxes done tomorrow (hopefully some kind of refund from someone), I just got my pay raise and bonus cash so we can get our new mattress, and all is right with the world. (Even if I only got in two workouts this week.)

Today I wondered if those energy drinks REALLY had enough caffeine to affect me (because I usually have two or three cans/bottles of caffeinated Diet Coke a day), so had one of those large cans of "Rock Star" (diet). I can't say it "woke me up," but it sure made me shake! Definitely more caffeine than your average soda. Not something I'd drink every day...

On the whole, this has been a good day.

Once I saw a bottle I'd been looking for a while at an antique shop in Bisbee for something like $40 - I knew from bottle books it wasn't worth more than $10, so I passed it up. Found it (and got it) on eBay for something like $5. Love that site.

makes it real easy to get hold of anime/manga collectibles I wouldn't be able to touch without going to a convention otherwise
