the one where i'm getting auctioned off for charity

Thursday, May 14, 2009

i have an announcement to make, an announcement that may make you look at me little different. you see, i've done something that never in my wildest dreams did i think that i would ever, EVER do.

i've put myself up for sale.

yes, you've read that right - i'm for sale.

me, alexa marinos (have fun with that full name google stalkers), have agreed to be auctioned off for charity - the american advertising federation cleveland chapter scholarship fund charity to be exact.

god help me.

my dear friend always a bridesmaid (who i will kill later if no one buys me) talked me into selling myself - literally. i think i really agreed to it for the blog fodder alone. we'll see what comes of it i guess.

so starting today through thursday may 21st at 5pm you can go to the AAF cleveland auction site and BID ON ME.

the "a night out with alexa marinos - cleveland's a plum author" package includes:
-two indians tickets vs the chicago white sox
-$50 gift certificate to
winking lizard
-yours truly as your companion.

i'm a bargain -
you should bid on me now before someone snags me up! you know you want to know how fun and cool i am in real life don't you?

what are you waiting for? check out my auction item page and bid.

BID!

  2. Since we can go out for free, I won't bid on you. But you better believe I will follow you around on the night out, capturing all the fun with my Flip camera.

  5. "List Price: Priceless"

    Love it.

    Will they ship you to out of towners? They could put holes in the box.

  9. That's awesome! I cannot believe you've put yourself up for auction, but I bet you'll get a lot of bidders. And, if nothing else, the evening will be wonderful because of the Indians tickets AND dinner. It HAS to be.

  13. But, if I win, then I'm sending my hunk of a husband to that game. He happens to be a huge White Sox fan. And I'm not sure Alexa would have very much fun with a married man who cheers for the other team. =)

  15. Maxie and I have already started finding the worst possible pictures of men online to use as your "bidders."

    If only I wasn't broke.

    Also if it was for a date with Nerm I would probably bid 5 grand.
