I was a bad, bad girl

Which is a great way to start a post, don't you think?

truth is, it wasn't really that bad. Not smart financially, but I believe my decision will bring me hours of joy.

I bought a weaving loom yesterday. Used. Excellent deal. can't wait to take it out of my car...

Here's the thing. I had been keeping my eye out. For several months. Then, suddenly, yesterday on craigslist, there it was! 300 bucks! I emailed, she still had it I picked it up. Paid another 100 for all the goodies. (lots of yarn and such)

Turns out, she has had it for sale for a long time, but couldn't find anyone local. Or anyone who wanted to buy it without a bench. (Hello? Chair?) So it sat. And she kept having to repost it online. My search and her post crossed. I guess I was the right one. And? it turns out we share a belief system. (Her boyfriend caught sight of my license plate frame) They were very nice people.

And that is all.

I can't wait to learn how to use it...

I'm off to spin before bed.

Dude. You weren't "bad" in the slightest!

Personally, I have spent so much money (in cumulative small amounts and bigger sums) on crap, that I'm beginning to see the value in spending real money on relevant things that will likely bring long-term fun.

Just like you did with your new loom.

Rock on, sister!
