So while some people sleep walk and talk in their sleep, apparently when I go without sleep for long periods of time I shop.

Thank the maker the bidding didn't go anywhere NEAR what the stupidly high max bid was I put in on a new camera on E-Bay.. Especially considering I don't even remember placing it.

But today I got the notice that I won an auction. I was very VERY surprised as I was fairly certain I hadn't bid on anything in a long time.

I was wrong.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice camera and I'm happy I won, but I'm more happy that the bidding stayed in control! My max bid was 700.00?!?!?!? This thing sells new on Amazon for 185.00 So uh yeah... no idea where that came from. I don't even remember bidding. But I won. And got it for the 20 bucks less than the Amazon price, the bonus being this one comes with an extra battery and a mobile charger, plus memory card and a case. Oh and a card reader. So it is a good deal.

I uh.. just have to figure out the budget to correct for this.

I think next time I start down a sleepless path, I shall have someone change my shopping passwords until I've had some sleep.

If your so inclined, here's a link to the new camera..DB
