Foiled in our pursuit of black-belts in consumerism
Although we did manage to make it to the puppet theater to see "Sinbad," our other adventures - as possibly greater and greater consumers - were thwarted today. The house we looked at on Capitol Hill - a mere $415K and tiny to boot - made us decide that working on our own house was a better option than buying up. Gary's games did not have Attika, and even though Wizards of the Coasts is going out of business, its stock still pathetic for the kind of gaming I like to do (all they had was New England and the expansion to the Settlers of Catan card set). Verizon's $60 a month for two minimum seemed high, so we will stay free of the electronic leash for now; and although I'm trying to Think Pink the Bon Marche was unwilling to accommodate me at a bon marche. We returned home with little to show but wisdom for our efforts ... but that, at least, could only be purchased through experience.
