Yesterday my dad wasn’t feeling well, so I ended up doing all the cooking and cleaning, and most of the eating. I don’t get what people complain about – it’s not that big a deal :)
Anyway, today he’s feeling better and I’m feeling worse. I think I have a cold or something- hopefully it’s not the flu :/
Here’s this weeks five:
1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
I’m ambivalent. I hate picking stuff out (I’m worried about regretting my decisions later), but I like actually buying stuff.
2. What was the last thing you purchased?
I bought an egg-timer yesterday, to aid in turkey-basting timing.
3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
Depends what I’m getting, and how quickly I want to get it. When buying presents or t-shirts I prefer to do it online, but when buying computer equipment I prefer to go to a real store (must. install. NOW!).
4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
Yes, $5/week until I was 13, $10/week after that until I got a job. When I was in college I got $20/week to buy food and such.
5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
That UV-treated floppy cable from Thinkgeek. They screwed up the order and sent me a non-UV cable so I had to send it back, only to have them send me another non-UV cable. I ended up buying something cooler from somewhere else (now I have one too many rounded floppy cables). Hopefully when that comes, it is the right thing :)
