Proud new owner of a Treo… I hope…

Last night I stalked a Treo on ebay. I want one very badly to replace the Palm III that died recently, but I don’t want to pay $400 for a new one. I didn’t bid until the last three minutes, because I hate to announce my presence to the other bidders and give the current high bidder time to come back and bid higher. I was outbid in the last four seconds, dammit.
Well, in my frustration, and because I didn’t like the feedback ratings of the next auction coming up, I went ahead and used “Buy it now” to get a Treo from someone with perfect feedback.
Apparently he hasn’t checked his mail yet. *flop twitch spazz click click* I wwant /\/\y intsatn gratificat1on!!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~~ giimmE,, gimme, gimme!!!!!!!!!1~~~
Um, anyway. In other news, I raked it in for Valentine’s. Helpful hint to other women–always ask for books. Ask for out-of-print used paperbacks at $1 a pop, and you, too, can rake it in. Your honey might even buy a new book to mix in with all those used books. I got:
Joanna Russ, The Female Man
James Tiptree, Up the Walls of the World
James Tiptree, Crown of Stars
James Tiptree, 10,000 Light Years From Home
Looks like I’ve got some reading to do! 🙂 Thanks, honey! *smooch* Happy V-Day!
