The agony and the ecstasy!

...also known as bidding on E-bay.  The stress and nail-bitting, clock-watching anticipation!!  Ack!  I can't take it!

I will admit that I am an E-bay novice.  I had a few things that I have sold but have never bid/bought anything before...until recently.  Earlier in the week I started "watching" a few items.  They had 0 bids and so were remaining steady at the $9.99 mark.  I finally got up the courage to place a bid on one of them and each time I went back to check on it, I was satisfied to see that I was still the only one interested (or so I thought).  Last night when I checked, I saw to my horror that 3 other people had bid and the price was steadily rising.  Be still my heart!!  Suddenly the item I thought was cute and wouldn't mind having (for the Noodle as it turns out) suddenly became AN OBSESSION.  For the last 2 hours I have been lurking, refreshing, fretting and watching the seconds tick away...will I win it or won't I?  The agony and the ecstasy of it! 

Obviously I need to get a grip.  I'll let you know whether or not I score.  Fingers crossed.
