Strangercrombie The Final Countdown
posted by December 14 at 12:34 PMon
The grand total, as of this moment: $44,062 and rising.
You’ve got until 5 pm today—just four and a half more hours—to bid. And still, everything is goin’ cheap.
The bicycle + messenger bag + bike fitting with track racing champ Kenny Williams? $405.
The dinner cooked for you and seven guests in your home by Renee Erickson of the Boat Street Cafe is just $530. (And check out these private dinners cooked by Ethan Stowell, Laurie Carter, and this champagne brunch by Robin Leventhal of Crave.)
The private performance by the deeply hilarious (and lewd) Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes is just $102.50.
The Pizza Glutton? Undervalued.
Party crasher? Just $50.
The cover of The Stranger? Just over $1,000.
There’s just too much—peruse the bargains here.
And the dramas:
Since the auction began, the private cello concert with Joshua Roman has been bid higher than the karaoke session with American Idol star Blake Lewis. Which was pleasantly surprising. (No offense, Blake.) As of this morning, Lewis (at $1,026) finally pulled ahead of Roman ($1,000), but their proxy war—pop versus haute—is still raging.
Slog commentors Fnarf and Mr. Poe, who were competing for the “gift of family planning,” have both been bid out of the running.
After the initial freak-out about the Chris Crocker package (his fans swamping our site, a specious $10,000 bid, and a bunch of commentors getting all peevish), the price for a private phone call with Chris has been bid to a respectable, but not insane, $255.
And some generous soul has bid this titillating tote bag, estimated to be worth $39, up to $50.
And, in the time it has taken to write this post, the total has jumped to $45,512. You all are saints. Saints!
