Shopping drunk on line.

Apparently, it's a trend. Well, drunk or not, people have been getting themselves in trouble shopping from home for a long time. Before the web, there was the catalogue and the telephone, not to mention the door-to-door salesman.

I once bought a motorcycle on Ebay while I was drunk. I didn't know how to ride a motorcycle. True story.

I've seen this on QVC - I used to watch the fake diamond shows late on Sunday night. Lots of drunk women buying way too much stuff and calling in to the show to talk about their latest purchase. They would also call in and buy cat stuff, too.

Shopping drunk online is my life. This was my last purchase.

I almost never buy items on the internet, and when I am drunk, the only think I want to buy is junk food.

While in college, my roommate and I used to drunk dial those infomercials that were on at 3 AM and ask the operators what kind of idiots shell out hundreds of dollars for some overly tan slickster's advice on how to make thousands with no money down on real estate.

I'm an online gaming fan -- call of duty, world of warcraft -- all that juvenile stuff. And amost drunk gaming is quite fun - fully drunk gaming usually ends badly though.

If you're going to buy things willy-nilly on the internet while drunk, by all means, buy end tables.

Just sayin'
