Okay, I keep getting outbid. Maybe I'll try the ebay approach and turn in my bid at the last minute - or dare to live within the snowflake of my choice.

I already had to give up the snowflake of my dreams when Grace Lin's went over $1000. No surprise in some respect, but still, way to go!

Mother Reader,

The last I checked Grace's snowflake was still under $1,000. The lowest acceptable bid for it is $ I write this comment on Friday morning around 9:00.
