spare two grand? anyone?

There's nothing like crunching the calculator to determine just how poor you are! As my figures figure, for now, I am just treading lightly "in the red" and not plumb drowned.

I just determined there are 40 albums that I must have, which is probably why I am not stuffing my mattress with dollar bills these days... Hey, I am a woman. I have needs damnit!

The iPod is the next major purchase I am eyeballings -- as my record collection deserves it, even if I don't.

I conclude now with adding Earthlink on my shitlist. I haven't had Internet access in three days... but I have been catching up with the obnoxiously overpriced cable that I pay for.
