I didn't post yesterday because I was at the epicentre of an intense ebay frenzy. Among the items of designer vintage clothing I don't need but have bid on, there is one dress that I have become particularly attached to. So I ask you, dear reader, to pray (to whomever you worship; God, Allah, Buddha, Vishnu, Athena, Visa Card... I'm not fussy) for the union of me and the dress. If you have praying time to spare, could you also please ask that nobody else bids on the dress? That'd be dandy.
I'll let you know in a few days if your efforts did any good.
