OH NO, MY LIFE SUCKS: IT WOULD APPEAR I HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM

I log on to ebay. Journal to Stella is set to end in fifteen minutes. Refresh: The highest bid is ten pounds. Refresh, refresh, refresh: ten pounds. I sit patitently. Five minutes remaining. I bid twelve pounds. I have no idea how much a pound is. Lousy not the dollar. One minute later I recieve an email that says "punkface67" outbid me. I lost!With a feeling like a sick qualm, as though I would like to make my way out of the crowd and go home, I staked another five pounds. I was the highest bidder! Two minutes remaing. I click refresh, refresh, refresh. It's mine! It's going to be mine: Refresh, refresh, refresh: You are no longer the highest bidder. Swift Student_3000 has outbid you.

I place my bid.

This auction has ended.

Refresh, Refresh, Refresh: NO! NO! NO!

I search. There is another auction for Journals to Stella. It is just beginning. 6 days remaining.

I click refresh.

(Due to my new found problem....)

Punkface67 is the name of the cream I used to put on my teenage acne.

A pound? About 1.72 dollars.

Enjoy.

I've given up great plans to stay with an Ebay bid. Things that will probably end up in a tag sale 5 years from now.
