Pray For Me - No Really!


Oh no. I'm all sweaty and panicky as I have done something really bad. You really all do need to pray for me and hope that someone else buys the camera that 'he who snores like a bison' is currently selling and has 2 hours to go on that famous auction site starting with an e and ending in b a y. I helped him post it up last week and yesterday he had a had a bidder. I checked it last night and bid a pound knowing full well someone else would have set a higher bid on it. Phew. They had. I checked again just now and bid another pound thinking that I would have been outbid. But NO. I AM THE HIGHEST BIDDER. NOOOOOOO. I only did it to help him get a better price and now it has potentially all back-fired. What is worse is that he doesn't know I have done this.

Ouch, my feet are burning. Hang on - I might just check in case someone has trounced me (please, please) while I am writing this.

Tap. Tap tap-tappity-tap.....

No. Of course - they haven't. It's lunch time and it runs out in two hours and everyone will be Christmas shopping and I will be the winner! Aaaaagghhhh.

Behold, lo the baby angels are praying for me and you all must too. I was only trying to help him get a good price and it will be so awful if it all backfires! That will teach me. Right - I can't take the pressure - I'm off out and when I come back I won't be the winner. Watch this space. (And think positive thoughts in the meantime please.

UPDATE: So I suppose you all want to know what happened don't you? I'll give you a hint.










Phew!

I'll start praying for you once I've stopped laughing.
I KNEW that this kind of thing went on with eBay, but now I know the "perpetraitors"...grrr - haha!

This sort of skullduggery goes on at work, too.

It could have been a lot worse than a camera. There's probably people out there who've bought their own houses.

hahaha! You're so naughty. You're like that bloke on the E--y Millionaires programme who got so attached to the antiques & curiousities he was selling that he couldn't bear to let them go after he'd listed them and started to bid for them himself. (He got locked out of his E--y account for this naughtiness.)

When you're lookin' for prayers you've had it, I know that for sure- I've tried them, they never work.
In-fact it was through prayer I discovered I am God, yes!
Everytime I preyed, and I prayed, and I prayed, and fuck it, I sussed it out, I realised, I was just talkin' to me-self.
Anyway!
Mum you tried your best; fair play to you.

Ister - oh go on - laugh away! I had to leave the house because I couldn't bear the tension of waiting - like an X-Factor final!!

Geoff - oh god - can you imagine? How awful.

Annie - I'm not THAT bad. It wasn't my own item - I was only trying to help bisonsnorer get a better price for his camera. Thankfully - it went for double my last bid. You have no idea how relieved I was to find out I was not the lucky winner!

Seanster - I think it was just another form of couldn't-help-it gambling let's-just-try it I-love-the-rush slight love of gambling feeling. Ha! I am so lucky. I am. I limit myself to gambling only twice a year - the Grand National and Cheltenham. I win most years - I always go for Irish trainers - can't go wrong in my book(ie). Anyway, I digress. I wouldn't do it again though - it was too nervewracking. I would much rather play roulette - for hard cash! That would be much more fun.

The Grand National - such words - especially after √Čamon de Valera, (the bollix) we knew we were all fucked when he came to power- I bet you never knew he was the first American president we had, and not many are aware of that, and ........ hang on - yes, a pint and a small Jemeson - where was I, the what, ah yes, the National.
I remember as a family we alway put at least a shillin' on to win- the auld pin in the horse list trick, and win we did (never mind the times we lost) I remember a win of a 100 shillings, not a bad turnover back then let me tell you, but I gave it all up; bad for you pocket.(the same again and make it a double will ya)
I better go Mum me head is startin' to spin, must be your mention of roulette or somethin'.
Have a great Sat. night, sure your only startin' over there, when we're two hours ahead.
Cheers!!!

Jifster - I read an interview with Bruce Forsyth in The Guardian at the weekend and I felt rather dismayed when he said that the last 25 years had gone by in a blur, faster than ever. I'm only 41 (or 39 on Munterspace!) and am suddenly panicking - what am I going to be doing at his age?! Hopefully still playing The Ace of Spades really loudly.

Dickley - Happy Christmas too - bloody hell it is nearly 2008. Where did all the time go?

Life begins at 40 for goodness sake- that's what they told me. I'll only see the number on a hall door.
One more week to go boys and girls I hope you were all good, if not at least together ((((with all the lumps of coal))) you can burn a big fire and drink mulled wine, and lament.
Ho ho ho, hee he!

Rivergirie - damn..if only I'd known! Mind you - I'm never doing that again - ghastly.

Howeser - could have done with a Bloody Mary more like! I repent I repent.

Jifster - whiiiiizz bang oh look - it's a whole year over....again...anybody bidding for the Grecian 2000 on ebay? ;-)

Seanster - so true so true - mmmm...mulled wine...yum
