Whew that was close.

We just got an apple AirPort hub at work and that spawned some tech lust in me. I too want this wireless technology... Though since I just got my car fixed I'm kind of poor and need to rebuild my emergency money supplies.

But then I remembered my CompUSA credit card--The one that I'd just paid off, in efforts to go debt free. So then there was the temptation to go indulge my irrational consumer lust and put the consequences off for another day.

So I managed to scrape together a few moments of will power and canceled the account.

Must remember... no more credit, no more finance charges... no longer will I be trapped in the enslavement of the american worker via the large club of debt.

Thanks,

Hmm... that's odd, I just felt a strange compulsion to run out to a toy store, get a credit card, and max it out on buying lego mindstorms. ;)

But it is always sitting on your shoulder, whispering promises of unlimited pleasure into one's ear. The poor opposing voice of temperance, restraint, and responsibility for the future lies mortally wounded on the other shoulder, only occasionally gasping out a warning against it's evil twin.

Thanks,

It was tough, standing there with the credit card in my hand, my car waiting outside, and the store open with the little widgets all crying my name. But I was strong and didn't listen.
