    When waiting for your auctions to end do you sit and constantly refresh for the last few hours? Or browse ebay? Or what?
    I have never been so nervious waiting for an auction to end as I am about this one. Of course its most likely cause it hits home so much. I probably won't sell but cant say i didnt try everything i can think of LOL
    Anyhow what do you do when your waiting..if you wait at all ? :)

    I've been known to put in "Guns and Roses - November Rain" during the last 8 minutes or so. (Any 8 minute song will work, however lol). That only makes you more nervous though, but it adds to the experience. :)

    My copy is 8:55 too. I should have said 9 minutes but I didn't remember how many seconds after 8 minutes it was lol! So far I have used that song for the end of all of my auctions including the original Forehead that was pranked. :)

    Well I will try it out. Maybe it will bring me some luck! I sure can use it lol Its going to be interesting to see how many people go through the refresh game or just leave it. I am too impatient to leave and comeback later after its over LOL

    Sometimes, I have to watch the auction. I get very nervous. I finally just decided that I don't need to get all worked up. Many times, the auction just sits in a passive mode, and then BAM! the end price is better than I expected.

    Bunny_roses what? no pink?

    that is one of my all time favourite songs! and I listen to it all the time when I am at my computer. However I have not put it in to listen at the final minutes of an auction but I will have to give that a try LOL ; )

    I've only tried selling a couple things on ebay...and only one has sold, but anyway....It seems at this point that how eagar i am to watch is very dependent on how intersting the auction is...if there hasn't been much action during the days leading up to the end...then its just not as intriging

    When i have watched mine and other's auctions i am curious about end...i refresh it constantly...but try to keep myself distracted with homework...haha....well with other things

    If I am selling something I generally check it each day. If I'm buying something I make a note of when it is ending and check it with about 10mins left and refresh every few minutes.
