This is a question Drunk Shopping

When I've had a few, I buy CDs off eBay and Amazon. I've got four copies of The Bends by Radiohead now. Show us your drunk eBay wins.

This question is now closed.

If you're in the habit of getting drunk on your own in front of the computer you've probably got more to worry about than buying stuff on ebay.

when i was 17, a group of 10 of us went to cornwall for a week's holiday
on the first night, i got utterly smashed and thought it would be a great idea to have my shoulder length hair cut really short at a dodgy old person's hair salon in newquay.

i woke up in the morning and thanked god that it was just a bad dream.

until i looked in the mirror. my nickname was "helmet head" for the next 3 months. don't EVER go to the hairdressers drunk :(

I got drunk and hooked up with a guy through OK Cupid.
The 44,000ltr saline enema was incredibly refreshing.

Half a mind

Well, half a brain, in fact. An anatomically-correct life-size model of a human brain. No real idea why, apart from ISLAGIATT.

I currently use it to keep the mouse cable from sliding around, but one day I plan to build a "brain in a jar" with it.

from thailand
an electric blue neon sign that said "massages". in my drunken state, i thought it would be HILARIOUS to pay about £30 plus £10 postage for this, so i could put it in my flatmate's bedroom.

then i forgot all about it, until about 6 weeks later i got one of those cards from the royal mail. i thought someone had sent me an exciting present, but no. no, it was my tacky and stupid joke sign.

not only was it a thai plug (well, duh. what kind of idiot didn't know that? er...) but the cable was so short that i don't know how you'd ever manage to plug it in, unless you wanted to advertise massages on the floor.

it came all the way from thailand, and was in the bin in london by the end of the day. i might as well have taken out four £10 notes and pissed on them :(

It was a fairly typical Saturday afternoon and I had been drinking steadily since finishing work
Friday evening. At about 3pm some people were going to the Great British Beer festival (GBBF) and they asked if I would like to join them. Arrived at Olympia at 3.15, I paid the entrance fee, bought the glass, looked at the people attending and left without consuming a drop and then I went to the Radnor Arms. See when you are drunk you can make good decisions.

I heard that in medieval times the poor used to cook up a combination of various powders, which when sniffed would produce a euphoric high.
They used to have festivals in which they'd celebrate the harvest, and sprinkle some of this concoction as an offering to the gods. Constable harks back to these times, and has documented them in one of his paintings.

It was, detailed as, ah - I think this works - showers yore E haywains.

I was shopping in the local sainsburys when I saw a big 600gm plastic container of whole cardamon seeds
"That might be nice if ever I'm making a curry", I thought as I put it in my basket. When I got home my wife asked the obvious question, "Why the fuck did you buy so many cardamon seeds, you're never going to use them?". I didn't really have any comeback as it occured to me that having never used this strong tasting and unground spice before, I'd have to commence spooning it over every meal for a year to get through it.
About three months later, having not used it at all, I was in the same Sainsburys, drunk from the pub, when I saw a big 600gm plastic container of whole cardamon seeds.
"That might be nice if ever I'm making a curry", I thought as put in my basket. It wasn't until I opened the pantry at home and saw the other jar that I remembered I'd already done this exact same thing before. They're both still there. Anyone know a good recipe that includes using a kilo of cardamon seeds?

Nobody is answering the question properly.
This is about Ebay. It says "Show us your drunk eBay wins". So none of this 'buy it now' shit either.

We have a week to regale each other with amusing anecdotes about the times we got drunk and bought things on EBAY.

I'll start us off.

I got drunk and bought a mousemat on Ebay.

OK, you can go ahead now.

As students, a couple of friends of mine on MASSIVE drugs,
turned up at 3am, having just come from Tesco.

"eVil we got you a footspa!!" one of them gleefully beamed at me. And so indeed they had.

In fact, they had purchased:
* 3 electric footspas,
* 4 apples (pink lady),
* a bunch of bananas,
* a packet of wire coat hangars,
* 1 large horseshoe magnet,
* a triple pack of ladies sew-in shoulder pads,
* booze and fags,
* and a boxed birthday cake with the iced message "Let's Party"

I still cherish that footspa.
