buying stuff

<<reverse < index > forward>>

(I know this will come off as sexist, but...) Despite having a Y chromosome, whenever I feel stressed out and unhappy with my life, I tend to buy stuff. (See, capitalism does work. Who cares if everyone is living a life of unremitting misery? At least we're helping the economy!)

So yesterday I dropped down money that I don't really have to purchase a Marware SportSuit Convertible for my iPod, a Keyspan Presentation Remote, a U.S. Robotics SoundLink Wireless Audio Delivery System, and a Hawking Technology 2 USB + 1 Parallel Port Internet Print Server.

While I have been screwing around with Romeo, which turns a Bluetooth-enabled phone (such as the Sony Ericsson T610) into a remote control for your Macintosh running OS X, the range of Bluetooth isn't as far as I hoped for. And besides, what with the UNIX mantra of "the right tool for the task" (as opposed to "all-in-one" creeping featurism), I figure it might be worth having a dedicated remote. (Ah, I love my rationalizations. Besides, I will have to do presentations when I'm a resident physician.)

Man, I can't wait until I start earning a paycheck.
