{i turned wimp}

today was a fundraiser event over at our school. people sold yummy food and more yummy food for us to pick from and eat . then afterward people brought nice/cool/fun things to auction off to make more money on  and for us to spend money on.
all i know is that i suck at auctions. i tried to bid on this cool thing and the bid started at $15 and i was happily waving my little number around when KKA-BOOOM the dude said 'who'llgiveme75,75,75'
and i went 'duuude. it was just $20.' and then i set my number down and cried. except i didn't cry because my friends were beside me and they said nice things to me and i said dumb things like 'why do i have to try and bid on this kind of stuff because i suck at it. '
 it only works for me if i'm the only bidder. i learned that lesson today.

o and so the weather? +10C or about 50 Fahrenheit and i FROZE people. i froze. i am from CANADA and i froze in PLUS TEN. i turned wimp.
actually if the truth shall be told. I turned Californian. i didn't wear the proper clothes for the weather.
nuff said.

  5. I detest auctions too! I ALWAYS end up wanting something that goes sky high... I figure I do my part of the fundraising by making the price skyrocket! :)
