Sunday, November 02, 2003Secret Purchases
A little over a week I succumbed to my nasty little habit (ok one of many little habits) and bought a new cumpler bag. This means we now have 5 bags between Suze and myself....all needed of course.
My new bag is a little one which I can hang around my neck and store my iPod (i love you iPod) and my phone (you are a utilitarian necessity phone and will be replaced when Steve Jobs creates iPhone). Meanwhile, I can carry my iBook (i love you too iBook) in my crumpler laptop bag and my other stuff in my crumpler messenger bag.
Being a secret purchase meant that at some stage I'd have to show Suzette and incur some anger over unnecessary purchases or something like that. So I used my tried and tested method of showing it to her when we had visitors (Suze's sister in this case) and using/taking-advantage-of Suzette's etiquette gland to not get told off too much....alas it didn't work :-(
The upshot of all this is that I am no longer to purchase any bags or officeworks products or ebay ANYTHING (I'm waiting on my 2 james bond games from this week).
