There are two things I itch for periodically.
1. A new Tattoo. As most will tell you, they are addictive and I go in to full on itch for a new one often and I have a few ideas waiting to be dug into my skin forever. Usually, I sit it out and wait for the itch to pass, otherwise I’d be covered by now and I only have four to date.
2. Gadgets – of the Technological variety. I have an itch right now to get a tablet. I don’t need one. I have a laptop, a Kindle PaperWhite and a smartphone so I’m pretty well covered for portable computing but I desperately want a tablet! Specially since I started blogging. I wonder if it would mean I could blog while on the go more. Or would it just be cumbersome to carry? Might be great for trips, instead of lugging the gaming laptop I have around. I’d love to be able to sit at a cafe’ with my tablet and a cappuccino and just enjoy the day. (which is also why I wanted the kindle – to read at a cafe’. I’m twisted I know.)
Now that I’m working and have an income again, small as it is, the craving for these increases. I know I should start putting some money away or use it for gifts for others, Christmas is just around the corner, but damnit! I want ! I told my husband to use my paycheck to help pay down the credit card but he keeps saying, no it’s for you to use for your stuff. Then I think well I should save for trip money, would be nice to go back to the states at some point in the next couple of years. I also want a few pricey kitchen gadgets as well. But, honestly how much is a tablet, $500? doesn’t seem like that would cut too much in to my trip funds. Not for long anyway… Round and round I go!
