Hi Shirley welcome back.
I was searching for good eBay jokes but could only find this. I am only providing a link as I think it would push the posting limits of Auctiva?

A man went to a bird auction one day. While there, he placed a bid on an exotic parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid - the fine bird was finally his! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!" "Oh, do not worry", said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"
Miss M - I stand corrected on the 'y' thing, and I'm sure we can think of something for Pete. (something he'll really love us for)

Miss S -
edit/edit "(if you count a lucky blast from a double-barrel shotgun blind-folded as pinpoint accuracy)." LOLOL You're funny!!!

Thought you might appreciate that, Miss "Shoots like a guy" Shirley.

"embarrassing" is what you get for being a tomboy miss spider girl.

Don't know where that Choo guy is, probably lurking about somewhere.
Off Topic. But this whole thread is off topic. Or maybe not. lol

I don't know how I got stuck in their stupid playground. It wasn't by choice and this is the third day of frustration and it's even worse today. It kicked me back in this morning. And I can't get out. Frown

Yes, I'd say avoid it at all costs. I like playgrounds. NOT this one though. Big Grin
Ms S..I guess clearing cookies & cache doesn't work for you? (I'm sure you've done that) That was the only thing to get me out of their stupid 'search' test..

Sid--"I'm sure we can think of something for Pete. (something he'll really love us for)"

That opens up a whole realm of possibilities that I'm sure he WON'T love us for Big Grin

Any ideas Miss S? The Darkside Babes should be able to come up with something..

Oh Shirley, BTW..Ebay is all screwed up today. All my sold items are gone (there were about 66 of them) and thank God only one person hasn't paid yet but when I click on 'Waiting for payment for 1 item 'link I get nada...I have to do an advanced search on myself just to get the info for that buyer, gotta send a second invoice. I sure hope it comes back soon. I think you & I are both caught in the middle of the glitches Frown

WoW--1982 views so far!

I just got done. I started to put the details here but I think I'll go to the other thread. No, none of these worked. Pete, my sentiments about naming it the "playground" are over there. grrr

Thank ya'll! I need all the moral support I can get right now. I could just cry cause I literally can't do anything on there without walking away to let it load. I can't even come here cause I can still see it. lol So I'm gonna laugh about it! Don't wanna cry. Confused

An S name for Pete... hmmm That'll distract me. Good.
Well Miss M, I posted a long ole post explaining it on that other thread. There truly is no link, anywhere. Frown There should be one that lets me return to regular ebay.

Thankyou. It'll work out. I'm a patient person, though too much longer and I'm gonna be asking for part of my monthly fees back. Wink

Now, back to fun! I don't mean to drag this FUN thread down!

Ohhhhh Niiinth, won't you come into my parlor???
Your parlor, or your "playground", locked in without a key. I read your other post, what a nightmare. I wonder how many other users this is happening to. If it locks on to an IP address, you can't be the only one.

Anyway your "parlor" sounds very dangerous, and extremely, how shall I say, 'compelling'. Your pic is way so hypnotizing. Whoo! Whoo! "You're under my spell, you'll do what I say." (Some tomboy!) Wink
Wow! You folks have been busy while I was gone! Big Grin Next stop, 2,500 views!

Hey Sid, nice to meet you!

Shirley, sorry to hear about your woes, I hope it's all sorted for you now? Frown

I read all the posts, hoping you would come up with a fitting 'S' name for me, like Sexy Pete, or Suave pete, or Super Pete. What did I get? Saint Pete Roll Eyes Not sure I've ever done anything saintly! Big Grin

OK, off again now, not sure if I'll be back on over the weekend, but I'll try. See y'all!
Alright I kind of caught up on this thread, however it does appear a few posts were deleted? I suppose to keep this at a PG-13 level?
Y'all were certainly busy last night while I was out socializing!
Evidently you guys were thread jumping last night so I guess I will have to read the boards?
Still at a loss for the "eBay playground"
Sorry for the Saint Peter, Pete but I went with my first thought!
Pete 'minx' is kind of funny too!
Nah, in these parts (at least my part) Slick can have any connotation you want it to....depending on the tone of voice.
I meant it in the best possible way (fingers crossed behind my back) Big Grin
You can flirt with me all you want but I won't be back here til late work today.
Hi Taz...TTY all later Smile

1 more edit--sorry to hear the little one isn't feeling good either..that means you're probably next Frown
Oh no! It's been almost 8 hours since this thread's been posted to. We can't have that! Eek

Yes, Taz, this is the one and same playground giving me all the grief. I can get in a little faster, which sure isn't saying much. lol I had a long ole run-on sentence that got deleted on here about it. I think I hit the mousepad somehow and it does that. Confused Maybe later I'll do it again.

Sue, I hope your first day back went well and you had a fun happy day at work! Wink

Pete, I haven't thought of what I want to suggest yet. Are we in a hurry or do I have more time to keep thinking about it? Smile
Meant to ask how's your OH and son? Sending positive thoughts. Hope they're weell fast!

Ninth, can you come out and play? Betcha can't find me! Cool
