Being a little bitter about my loss on the Crystal Pepsi bidding war, I decided to try to obtain bottle of Orbitz. Orbitz was around about 10 years ago, and was popular because of the little balls that floated inside of the liquid. I currently have a $6.00 bid out. This isn’t close to my heart like Crystal Pepsi, but it will hold me over until a bottle can be mine.
Does anyone remember this stuff? How aggressive should I be? Remember, I am a non-profit blogger, and am currently living in poverty.
Oh, and the bottle is 10 years old.

I think I am going to use a little bit of strategy on this one. This morning I was outbid by $.50 by someone who doesn’t have people counting on him to win the auction, and probably doesn’t even know what Orbitz is. Instead of starting a war, I am going to use a sneak attack. I will begin my aggressive bidding with a few hours remaining in the auction, and the Orbitz will be mine.
Can’t win with ’em. Won’t win with ’em.

So I moved in for the kill and blew away the competition with a $10.00 bid. This bottle will be mine in ten hours, and man am I excited.
