Okay, now that I’m down to 3 credit cards (which to any normal person I’m sure would be a cause for financial panic) and the plan to pay the rest of my debt off is progressing nicely. I’m finding myself, shall we say, tempted, to go out a splurge a little bit.
Okay maybe tempted is not the right word. It doesn’t really convey the feeling properly.
To properly elucidate what I’m actually going through we’re going to have to go up metaphor alley. Say shopping equates to sex. “Tempted” to me, suggests a slight feeling of arousal, maybe a slight flush to the cheeks. Some uncomfortable and awkward adjustments may be required in the underwear area. But nothing that anyone with even a modicum of self-restraint couldn’t handle.
What I’m feeling now is downright lust. The hot, panting, wanton, sweating, desperate need to spend a lot of money.
I’m barely holding on.
The new iPad is coming out here in Australia on the 18th of March. $899 (for the 64GB with WiFi and 4G)
The new Mass Effect game is out in stores today. $100
I need bookshelves: $50 – $200.
I want a small 2 seater couch: $200 – $600
I want a couple of desks: $200 – $600
An awesome slim fitted navy blue suit is on display at the suit place. $699
I still need a replacement for both my dead desktop and my aging laptop: a total of $4,000 for both.
It’s getting into the colder months here, I need a new blanket (doona, comforter whatever you call it): $50 – $250
I want a car. At least $4,000, but for the car I want $60,000 (loan of course).
This is not a request for help. This is a statement of what I am about to do.
Don’t worry, I won’t go completely nuts. I won’t get every single one of those things, but after 15 months of scrimping and tightening my belt, I feel that I need to go crazy.
I’m definitely getting the blanket, cause damn it’s getting cold.
I’m definitely getting the game, cause screw it, I have no life. 😛
As for everything else… *sigh* they’re going to have to wait…
