Christmas Consumerism

YES!! Success with Django! I managed to grab Amon Tobin’s Bricolage at $8.99 before anyone else got to it. Yay. :)

My Christmas consumerism is beginning to alarm me, not just because of the absolute amounts I’ve been spending but also because of the way I justify everything with “Oh well, it’s Christmas and I deserve a little treat.” To take things further, those nasty retailers know the devastating damage a sale sticker does to my self-restraint and fiscal discipline, so lots of things become not just A Little Treat but an Absolute Must-Have At This Low Festive Price!

But more on this at another time – now I have to get to a friend’s house so we can enjoy the chocolate rum cheesecake I bought at £2 off at Iceland…
