Well. I lost my virginity. I have kept it for a long time, sometimes its been hard ... I have come close many times, but always changed my mind at the last minute, saying to myself no you can't stop stop now!!! but finally it has happened.........
I bought something on Ebay.
Now I know some of you will be gasping that, at age 35, a child, paypal account, and a love of hunting and gathering that I have never been tempted.
One simple reason:
The website is so ugly.
The pictures are hideous. People take pictures of clothes they are selling thrown onto their horrible bedspreads, with bad lighting .... I have never been tempted by anything on there ... and I have been overwhelmed with where to start.
The other reason:
I don't trust myself in an auction situation. NO. Never.
That is dangerous to me... if this something I really want I know I will get carried away.
I feel different now. Like I have entered a whole new world of online addiction... but I feel safe. The purchase, whilst satisfactory, was bought using the "buy it now feature" so does it really -count? I think it was a low risk purchase and feel confident that it will not start an addiction ( not like some people we know. who answer most "where did you get that?" questions with the word Ebay. -one of our friends bought a car on Ebay) (At this point Chef would like to say " pot", "kettle" , "black", "etsy")
So I suppose I better tell you what broke the drought?
Wooden dolls house furniture. ( for the most special of surprises for Busy's Christmas). I have been looking at it locally and on line and its been $40 per room- I got a few rooms for less than $40 with postage. Here is is.
If you want some there is loads more.
