    ReplyDelete
  52. Is this going to beat Janet Reid's item? Could this be a new record? Should I round out this comment with a third question?

    ReplyDelete
  53. This....is the best thing...I have EVER seen in a charity auction.

    I fear for someone's life tonight, too. So it does have everything. Drama. Suspense. Humor.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. I feel iffy about how my name got pulled into that comment, no lie.

    iffy as in i thought hannah was gonna cut me.

    ReplyDelete
  59. *roots for Hannah*

    I don't want to see her head explode tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  60. clone i would never cut you.

    i want you guys to know that i typed "sic sempur tyranus" into this comment box, then decided that would probably not be best.

    and yet here i am, posting this comment...

    ReplyDelete
  61. Does the auction end at 11:59? Or do bids at 12:00 count? In case that is an issue here.

    ReplyDelete
  62. *PSYCH!*

    Ok. Just seeing if you're still paying attention.

    *tension mounting*

    Waiting....waiting....

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hannah, since you and Derek are such good buddies now, tell him to go back and bid on our seriously fabulous agent!! :p

    ReplyDelete
  64. for once I appreciate sage posting here

    FOR ONCE

    (for anyone watching who is confused, sage is my bff so don't worry about it)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Just so you guys know...Derek is the big bidder in Janet's auction. So if this beats Janet's item.... ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  66. bree, my professor hates you. i haven't started this paper, and he blames you. he told me.

    derek, go bid on suzie, hello.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lisa, you're fabulous agent is currently splitting my money attention with the also fabulous Janet Reid.

    I'm so torn, you have no idea. I want to buy BOTH. But sadly I cannot :(

    ReplyDelete
  68. MAN I just want that crown for a sec even as the highest bidding item *i wish may i wish i might*

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh wow. I just did the very thing I kill people for:

    Using "you're" instead of "your"

    Wow. This drama has me totally messed up.

    ReplyDelete
  70. i worried about bree's safety if she tries to beat hannah.

    very worried.

    this is the sort of stress that causes mental breakdown, people.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah, well I have a whole FRAKKIN' book due tomorrow. Go play your tiny violin somewhere else!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Derek--There's a reason The Janet Reid calls Suzie the Suzinator...

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think I'll take the crown for the most dramatic auction/most entertaining one too!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Definitely wins the award for most posts

    ReplyDelete
  75. Best. Mother's. Day. Ever.
    If only I had $800 laying around...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Trinity.

    You cannot just come into my thread and post "$800" all willy-nilly.

    I'm sorry, but I live in Maryland and I just checked my state constitution and that's actually illegal. So.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Reverie, I only just realized that you were Vania

    ReplyDelete
  78. WOW!!! I cant even believe it hit $750!!!!

    Comments or no comments you guys rock!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Haha Trinity, you prob. gave these poor bidders a heart attack by using numbers :p

    And FYI.

    Bidding goes to 12:00.

    ReplyDelete
  80. OH HI SAGE!!! Yes I'm Vania.... Surprise! Been lurking in here all stealth like!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yes Trinity. I can side with Hannah on that. Heart-attack barely averted.

    ReplyDelete
  82. i'm not sure anyone here but andy understands how scary i really am.

    pretty soon janet's going to be calling me hannahtron or some shit.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Now I want Lisa to tell me the actual reason Janet calls Suzie the Suzinator....

    But I suppose that's another post.

    17 minutes!

    ReplyDelete
  84. This is the most painful exciting thing I have ever done...

    But...it's a long, long time before my book comes out. Also, I'm too young to die.

    ReplyDelete

    Hannah, what will we ever do with you?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Come on you pansies! We can take Hannah if we do it together. Besides I do travel with a professional bouncer (or at least she claims to be).

    ReplyDelete
  93. GIVE ME BOOK TRAILER OR GIVE YOU DEATH

    ReplyDelete
  94. Well, I for one am going to pay Vania to do mine the old fashioned way. But it won't be nearly as entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Nope not yet. Hannah wins so far with $750

    ReplyDelete
