    Auction #80 - Retribution!

    Here Kitty! Kitty! Kitty!

    Gather 'round, children... yes. Yes! All of you sweet li'l Hello Kitties... This is the auction - this is the chance! - you've been waiting for!

    We've all been afflicted with Pepto-Bismal Pink party dresses... li'l purple skirts... plastic bows... dainty sparkles!

    It's Payback Time!

    "But... but how?" you ask.

    This is how. This is the Bargains Board! This is an Auction Thread!

    How would you like to choose MacAllister Stone's avatar for her and watch as it posts its way around the forum for 30... that's THIRTY whole days?

    How much would you pay? Would you start the bidding at $5.00? I knew that you would!

    There's only a couple easy rules, ladies and gentlemen. Our own Medievalist is going to have veto power on the avatar chosen by the winning bidder - don't be pickin' no porn stuff, guys and gals. And nothing personally or purposely hurtful, okay?

    That's it! Bidding starts NOW, runs to 8PM, Okie time, Wednesday, July 4, 2007. Keep your bids in increments of whole dollars, please.

    Make it wacky. Make it cute. Make it silly. Make it up or cruise the 'net 'til you find juuuuuuuust the right one! Post it here so we can snicker and giggle.

    But bid now! Bid big! And Bidder up!

    Who'll start the bidding for me with a fat fiver?

    You could outbid everyone, Mac... but then the money would come from you back to AW and be a wash.

    BTW, folks, the avatar you choose isn't limited to a 'Hello Kitty' one! Be creative!

    Oh, honey, you know I'm bidding on this one. Must spend tonight away from AW searching for just the right kitty.

    Lord, I feel the shakes coming on already. An evening away from AW? Meds, quick! I need my meds!

    Thanks, I guess I assumed it must be one of those kitty humwillythings. Hmmm... it does open the door to numerous, wonderous, and fantastic possibilities.

    It does, it really does. And umm, if you know, you find something really nifty, and win, that's too large in terms of file size, I reckon something can be worked out

    You know, in the spirit of community and all . . .

    I will!

    I'll give you 15.

    Now all I have to do is find the right avatar... I'm thinking something in a pink roadrunner.

    Or maybe a Windows logo for Mac. Well, it tickles me.

    A thought occurs. Does the runner-up get to choose Mac's User Title?

    Thanks Cath for getting out for me...

    ETA: this is how Mac feels after a sat nite, here...ROfl

    I thought about offering to change that as well, but it's too important to newbies to make sure that they know that MacCannister Runs The Place.

    So no. Sorry.
