I know I'm probably the last person in the blogosphere to catch up with eBay.
But I just bought stuff on it for the first time and am feeling very pleased with myself. It's very tense, watching the minutes tick down on the item you're bidding for, refreshing the page every two minutes (er, seconds) to see if you've been outbid, the relief when the item is yours.
Perhaps not something I should do too often. Too stressed-making.
(I bought lots of double-pointed knitting needles and some bright pink mohair blend wool. Just in case you're interested.)
