my birthday, 3 years ago..
after a fairly heavy night to celebrate getting old, I awoke one morning with little memory, and a very sore head. I nipped to the local shop, got a bottle of coke, pack of bacon and the obligitary cornetto. once these were completed, i decided to log onto my emails, see if anyones wished me a belated birthday.

I was rather surprised to see 4 emails in my ebay folder. 'probably spam' thinks I, and click to see them.

The emails appeared as follows

8th May, 5.15 am - thankyou for bidding on ebay item ...
8th May, 6.00 am - congratulations - you have one ebay item ...
8th May, 6.05 am - thankyou for your payment for ebay item ...
8th May,10.00 am - your ebay item, number ... has been dispatched

It appears that, having got home at around 5, I was summoned by my own brain to go on ebay, bid on an item, wait 45 minutes for it to finish, pay for it, then fall asleep and lose any recolections of the previous activities.

3 days later it arrived. I was the proud owner of this (ebay link)


according to my mates, there had been someone playing in the market diner (local late night foodery) and I was smitten. to this day, I can barely play a note.

you lucky cunt
Buying a ukulele, or however it is spelled, while pisssed is the most amazing thing i've ever heard of. that is a great honour cosidering i have read "Lawnchair Larrys Aerial Adventure". shame you can't play the thing. I'm learning guitar and its a bastard when you want to sound like a metal GOD but really sound like shite. my advice is don't bother.

Me Too!
i've done exactly the same thing, i have a yellow ukelele which has got pictures of pinapples on it, i've had it three months but haven't yet started to learn how to play it. wine and ebay are not a good mix!

If you haven't done already, check out YouTube for the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain playing such classics as 'Shaft' and 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.'
Truly awesome.
