So I thought I had joined a Buy Nothing Day group on Facebook, but then realized that I hadn’t, so for some reason, that made going out and buying something today okay. I know it’s bad – I know it’s just giving in to the consumeristic/materialistic culture we live in today, but…for only $169 I could get a 22″ Acer Widescreen monitor. I thought about joining my in-laws for a 5.30am excursion this morning, but I decided against it. Circuit City still had the monitor at around 1pm, so that was good. At any rate, I fully support all of you who did not buy something today – and I’m sure I’ll do it some year. But I’ve been wanting a new monitor for awhile, and…well, let me stop there with my excuses.
