I know

Why I don’t save more money: I am impulsive.

Like today, for example – on a whim, I went online and checked to see if there was a copy of Social Life in Medieval Rajasthan available, and lo and behold there was (for $25!) so I bought it. This is fine if it is an isolated case, but generally it involves a book here and a sari there and an ice cream cone and three lattes and a pair of shoes on sale (that I will never wear) and a dress from Target and then I have no money at the end of the month.

I say that I wonder about it, but really I don’t.

Anyway. So I bought the book. The other part of this being impatient is that I requested it from Interlibrary Loan a month and a half ago, and so far it hasn’t shown up. Rather than being patient for it to come to me for free, I purchased it (and in all truthfulness, I most likely would have purchased it after I had to return it, anyhow, so there you go).

August will see me making a valiant effort to save up for DragonCon. Or perhaps I will also make an effort to be a good girl and will not buy things I don’t need at DragonCon. Which totally works all the time. Yeah.

I went to Merkerson’s Fish Market with a coworker and although it is an Atlanta “thing” and although it satisfied the hole-in-the-wall feel she requested, it was sort of a hole-in-the-wall quality (not in a good way), so I feel the need to get some fried okra from Yasin’s to make up for it (odd personal note: fried okra is my favorite food ever). So now I feel gigantic and am waiting not terribly patiently for next week when my book will arrive and perhaps I can get closer to figuring out what Margavati’s surname is.

I have a knitting tomorrow at Claudia’s, so perhaps we shall see some progress on projects (actually, I get a lot accomplished in knitting groups, so probably yes).

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
