Woot!!!!! Go Bree!!!ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure Hannah has some kind of telepathic link to this postReplyDelete
this post owns half of my soul.ReplyDelete
I considered upping this, just to torture you, Hannah, but you've been too good to us :pReplyDelete
I love you. I'm doing a little freakout dance over here.ReplyDelete
Two more hours? Three more hours? *bites nails*ReplyDelete
I'm freaking out. REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH. three more hours. damn central time.ReplyDelete
If I comment, will it freak you out?ReplyDelete
no, dear, I love you too much. I'm keeping an eye on sage, though. she's a trickster.ReplyDelete
jk. I love sage too.
but she is a trickster.
if it makes you feel any better I am REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH tooReplyDelete
I hope you weren't hoping Bree would beat me. You sounded quite excited about her bid...HMMMMMM
OKAY I HAVE TO LEAVE FOR HALF AN HOUR.ReplyDelete
THERE BETTER NOT BE ANY FUNNY BUSINESS WHILE I'M GONE.
Posts just to make Hannah twitch ;) Sadly, I'm too broke to bid on this, but Vania's work is amazing!ReplyDelete
I am excited for whoever wins but I'm leaning towards the awesome hair!ReplyDelete
Please, Shades, if I'm going to sneak up and outbid you on something, it'll be the website, not the trailer ;)ReplyDelete
my hair is pretty fantastic. although it needs to be re-dyed. the pink parts are more like white right now.ReplyDelete
LEAH YOU ARE ON MY NAUGHTY LIST
NAUGHTY LIST?!! Well, tonight's first goal has been met. ;) Now onto editing. I'll leave you all to the frantic last minute bids! GOOD LUCK ALL!ReplyDelete
Mauahahhaha Hannah's all mine!!!ReplyDelete
GO BREE!!!!! This is so fun!ReplyDelete
BREE I SWEAR TO GODReplyDelete
YOU MAY THINK THAT'S A PERCENTAGE SIGNReplyDelete
IT'S A DOLLAR SIGN
WITH A BULLET
I need to be revising--deadline tomorrow!!! (But this is too much fun.)
Give up, Hannah. I'm older, and I have more insurance!
You guys scare me!!! *i should be studying for final instead REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH*ReplyDelete
I have a research paper due tomorrow morning that I haven't even started. I'm more badass than either of you.ReplyDelete
Refresh doesn't work for me. For some reason, the back button updates the comments number though, lolReplyDelete
OOOOOOH!!! $700! I like that number! a LOT! But I'll wait till it's over till I spill any beans!ReplyDelete
Oh, this is fun. I am with Hannah, project due tomorrow. I haven't even started! This is more fun!ReplyDelete
It's like a nose-to-nose horse race where you can't decide to root for because they're both so eager for the win!ReplyDelete
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF INSANITY USE DOLLAR INCREMENTS :PReplyDelete
Fine, Victoria! take all the fun out of it.ReplyDelete
I can't believe you just bid a cent. I'm actually ashamed to be involved in this bidding war with you.ReplyDelete
Twas being . . . no, ironic isn't the right word.ReplyDelete
That was supposed to be FOR THE LOVE OF SANITY, not INSANITY. I need sleep. And THANK YOU for at least using full dollars.ReplyDelete
I have to stay up till midnight anyway to close this round out. Might as well watch.
REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH
$750. maybe you can get the random photo shoot as your consolation prize, Bree.ReplyDelete
my telenovela is back on!ReplyDelete
This is seriously cutthroat!ReplyDelete
*cheers w/ popcorn*
If only Maureen Johnson were bidding, these gals would have their own three-way Saturday Night Live routine going...ReplyDelete
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
This....is the best thing...I have EVER seen in a charity auction.ReplyDelete
I fear for someone's life tonight, too. So it does have everything. Drama. Suspense. Humor.
DAMN IT MANDYReplyDelete
And no Amanda, it shall NOT beat Janet! =PReplyDelete
Derek can stay. I like Derek.ReplyDelete
But MANDY. more like HEARTATTACKANDY AM I RIGHT
It's just me.
Hmmm... I'm thinking. How much can I spend before hubby freaks out...ReplyDelete
And I can't let Hannah rest on her laurels. 32 min. and counting...
I feel iffy about how my name got pulled into that comment, no lie.ReplyDelete
iffy as in i thought hannah was gonna cut me.
*roots for Hannah*ReplyDelete
I don't want to see her head explode tonight.
clone i would never cut you.ReplyDelete
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...
Does the auction end at 11:59? Or do bids at 12:00 count? In case that is an issue here.ReplyDelete
Ok. Just seeing if you're still paying attention.
Hannah, since you and Derek are such good buddies now, tell him to go back and bid on our seriously fabulous agent!! :pReplyDelete
for once I appreciate sage posting hereReplyDelete
(for anyone watching who is confused, sage is my bff so don't worry about it)
Just so you guys know...Derek is the big bidder in Janet's auction. So if this beats Janet's item.... ;-)ReplyDelete
bree, my professor hates you. i haven't started this paper, and he blames you. he told me.ReplyDelete
derek, go bid on suzie, hello.
Lisa, you're fabulous agent is currently splitting my money attention with the also fabulous Janet Reid.ReplyDelete
I'm so torn, you have no idea. I want to buy BOTH. But sadly I cannot :(
MAN I just want that crown for a sec even as the highest bidding item *i wish may i wish i might*ReplyDelete
Oh wow. I just did the very thing I kill people for:ReplyDelete
Using "you're" instead of "your"
Wow. This drama has me totally messed up.
i worried about bree's safety if she tries to beat hannah.ReplyDelete
this is the sort of stress that causes mental breakdown, people.
Yeah, well I have a whole FRAKKIN' book due tomorrow. Go play your tiny violin somewhere else!ReplyDelete
Derek--There's a reason The Janet Reid calls Suzie the Suzinator...ReplyDelete
I think I'll take the crown for the most dramatic auction/most entertaining one too!ReplyDelete
Definitely wins the award for most postsReplyDelete
Best. Mother's. Day. Ever.ReplyDelete
If only I had $800 laying around...
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.
Reverie, I only just realized that you were VaniaReplyDelete
WOW!!! I cant even believe it hit $750!!!!ReplyDelete
Comments or no comments you guys rock!
Haha Trinity, you prob. gave these poor bidders a heart attack by using numbers :pReplyDelete
Bidding goes to 12:00.
OH HI SAGE!!! Yes I'm Vania.... Surprise! Been lurking in here all stealth like!ReplyDelete
Yes Trinity. I can side with Hannah on that. Heart-attack barely averted.ReplyDelete
i'm not sure anyone here but andy understands how scary i really am.ReplyDelete
pretty soon janet's going to be calling me hannahtron or some shit.
Now I want Lisa to tell me the actual reason Janet calls Suzie the Suzinator....ReplyDelete
But I suppose that's another post.
This is the most painful exciting thing I have ever done...ReplyDelete
::quickly counting pennies::ReplyDelete
::digs in couch cushions::
::daughter could wait a while for that filling::
::who needs food anyway?::
But...it's a long, long time before my book comes out. Also, I'm too young to die.
I was like, "This Reverie girl is really into it," lol. This makes sense now.ReplyDelete
hhahahah Oh yeah I am!!! Would have been even funnier if I was popping in other auctions cheering, but alas I am not that crazy!ReplyDelete
Hannahtron destroys all hope of victory.ReplyDelete
just plugged in my laptop.ReplyDelete
hannahtron promises nuclear warfare and imminent destructionReplyDelete
*DIES of laughter*ReplyDelete
*Running for the bomb shelter*ReplyDelete
I don't even know what to say.ReplyDelete
Originally, the comment section was STRICTLY for bids. But look at this.
LOOK AT THIS.
Hannah, what will we ever do with you?
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
GIVE ME BOOK TRAILER OR GIVE YOU DEATHReplyDelete
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
Did Bree outbid Hannah? I'm lost here!ReplyDelete
Nope not yet. Hannah wins so far with $750ReplyDelete
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE UP AGAINST.
I AM NINETEEN YEARS OF RAW STEEL.
I HAVE SLEPT FIVE HOURS OUT OF THE LAST 48.
I AM THE LOVE CHILD OF A U.S. MARINE AND A BOMB.
YOU CANNOT WIN.
*ducks and runs*
*blows smoke from gun*
Oh wow! That was .....ReplyDelete
you have no idea how many twitter followers I'm getting from this.ReplyDelete
Trinity! You sneaky little____ *shakes fist vigorously*ReplyDelete
Beware the Hannahtron:ReplyDelete

The Hannahtron is EPIC. I think she needs a t-shirt or tattoo of that. ;)ReplyDelete
Vania, you are TIED.ReplyDelete
Ok ok ok. $805. Final bid. If you can outbid me in time, I bow out gracefully.ReplyDelete
