      ( 9:24 AM ) Rebecca  
So, yesterday I indulged myself and bought a very cute alpaca hat. After all, I am wearing hats even more than usual now, due to my bad 80s haircut. (And no, Lotus, I haven't started wearing my retainer or leg warmers again - although I did have some hip purple sparkly ones back in the day!)

This hat was 40 bucks, which is way too expensive for a hat -- especially because I'll probably lose it. Not to mention, it's from Peru, which means that it would have cost me, oh, $5-$10 if I bought it in Peru - maybe even less!

But, after beating myself up over this purchase, I decided to look at it this way instead: A plane ticket to Peru would probably cost about $800. So really, I've actually saved myself at least $760 on this hat (and really, more, if you count all the the lodging and traveling costs I would have to pay in Peru!)

Now that's a pretty substantial savings, if I do say so myself.

This blog was the inspiration for my novel. It helped me get through a horrible breakup and kept me entertained for years. But all good things must come to an end. I will recycle oldies but goodies from the archives here, but will blog about about writing here, and about all kinds of other stuff here.
