It Comes…

posted by on November 30 at 14:57 PM

Look for it. December 6.


Karaoke with Blake Lewis: In case you’ve been living under a stone—beatboxing marvel Blake Lewis is an American Idol superstar who makes everyone’s hearts go pitter-pat. Singing karaoke with him will cure the sick, mend the brokenhearted, and possibly score you a spot in the VIP section of heaven. In an acronym: OMG! Plus a 30 gigabyte pink iPod signed by fellow Idol-ator Kelly Clarkson, a life-size cutout of Ms. Clarkson, and eight cases of kiwi-strawberry Vitamin Water. Did you ever dare to dream of such happiness? Priceless! Opening bid: $1.99.


The Best Damned Dinner Party in the History of Ever: For the second year in a row, culinary god Ethan Stowell—of Union, Tavolata, and How to Cook a Wolf—comes to your house to cook a feast for six. Plus a cavalcade of wines courtesy of Mark Ryan Winery. (And might we suggest Seattle Symphony cellist Josh Roman, for a private dinnertime concert?) Priceless! Opening bid: $1.99.

(And! How to Cook a Wolf, Stowell’s tiny new 20-person restaurant on the top of Queen Anne, opens tonight.)

Strangercrombie: Once a year, we do something nice.

That is incredible about Blake. My credit card is warmed up and ready!

I learned my lesson last year: I'm not even going to pay attention to Strangercrombie until about 30 minutes prior to the end of bidding.

Posted by COMTE | November 30, 2007 3:43 PM

good idea, comte.

I'll bid at 29 minutes before.

after all your tube and baud experiences you are just now learning not to bid on an auction until the very end? i hate to break it to you, but if your aim is to win, you have to focus on the last 15 seconds. or, you know, have a lot of money.

well, i could write a cron job for perl to do it, but i like to handroll my bids.

the point of auctions is to pay the least to get what you want.

The point of Strangercrombie is to raise money for FareStart. And ogle hot models.

I admit, Infrequent, I think I've only purchased two things from Ebay since it started business, and those were items that apparently weren't in particularly high demand.

Otherwise, my experiences are almost exclusively with live auctions, wherein I tend to follow Will's directive - and end up scoring some tremendous deals, because apparently, I buy things that nobody else seems to want.

Why is she freezing? Jeez, don't you people know ANYTHING? Chicks are hot when they're freezing.

Well, @12, yes, but only when they're wearing fuzzy sweaters. Especially pink or yellow ones.
