Saving and Spending

As I was cycling today, I was composing a post in my head. It went something like this:

"I've always been fairly good about not spending money. Every now and I'll splash out, and buy a laptop or a trip to England, but usually, I'm pretty good.

Lately, I've been trying to save up for a certain trip, but it's very inconsistent, resulting in days like the one with me deciding I didn't need the second hand on my watch to actually tell time (cost: $10) and then going and blowing half a paycheck on three pairs of shoes.

Or today, when I bought two 50c stamps instead of ten, and then spent $45 in the uni bookshop."

I didn't really finish it, but I feel it was building up to a pithy conclusion that would generate a ton of hilarious comments.

But then I actually went to buy some books, took my three Conan Doyles to the counter, and the chick showed me this one...

...that I could get instead for the low low price of FIFTEEN DOLLARS.

I hate when real life interferes with a blog post.


  1. What a bargain,huh? Are you taking the whole series to SF?

  2. Yeah I was stoked to find it. That book will be my on-the-plane reading, and the way I can pretend I'm even thinking about my thesis while I'm away.
