    .....and my wallet. I haven't purchased anything on eBay in years. However, I have a little tax refund stuck back, so I decided to peruse the estate pipe offerings. This caused a major flare up of PAD. Before I realized what was happening, I had placed conservative bids on 16 lots. Well, it must be a slow weekend for bidders, because I've already won 6 of them. Two more are ending later in the week, and I'm praying I get sniped.

    I really didn't think I would win this many. Man, I feel like I just woke up from a frat house party with a magic-marker mustache and my hand in a warm bowl of water.

    Anyone else ever had a similar experience on eBay?

    I'm wondering if you laced it. At least I'll have 20 new-to-me pipes to smoke it in.

    Ebay and drinking heavily are a bad combination. I have had a few rounds of receiving stuff I didn't like for prices that were too much and wondering what the postman was going to bring next.

    Damned buy it now button combined with instant gratification.

    Just to set the record straight, I wasn't drinking. I just feel hungover now.

    Drunk EBay surfing has put me in serious trouble in the past with straight razor hones. I try to avoid it, but then the other day I bought a brand new Peterson from Cup'o'joes while inebriated. I don't regret it, but it definitely wasn't in the budget. Now...where's that rum?

    The only cure I have found is to stop looking at them ;)

    I had to teach myself to just put stuff in my watch list and if it is still a reasonable price 30 seconds before the auction ends I bid. I also had to start refusing to look at BIN auctions. Not having to wait will get me every single time.

    Yes, I have experienced the many pitfalls of drunk ebaying. Worse case was when I took delivery of--not 1, not 2, not 3----but 7 separate deliveries in one day. Most of them were ebay estates. Needless to say that my wife hit the ceiling.

    I went nuts around December/January and bought around a dozen pipes off ebay. I've promised the wife that I'm going to hold off until after Thanksgiving. I doubt I'm going to make it.
