Uh, have I mentioned how much I hate the fucking bid-bots on eBay?

Yeah? Thought so.

I've been on one of my "Jay&Marie" ventures, and have picked up 9 CDs, and was really hoping for 10-12. I was just watching the end of the last one I had a bid on (I'd "lost" another 10 over the past 24 hours), and was thinking "well, with this one I can wrap this up and do the payment", when with THREE FUCKING SECONDS remaining, some asswipe swoops in and tops my (admittedly tiny ... I'm trying to get these for 1¢ each!) bid. Few things make me immediately want to grab a 2x4 and re-arrange somebody's face as getting beat by a goddam bot!

Betweeen this (now I'm going to have to wait hours more for some that I've been watching to come up), and the eternal damnation to the Cubs' "Virtual Waiting Room" (4:40 in the queue and counting), as well as some other stuff that would just jack my blood pressure to even get into, I'm having a real pisser of a day.

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill! (to paraphrase Arlo Guthrie)
