073: FOR THE LOVE OF THINGS
I'm constantly fascinated by the human need to acquire material posessions. No matter what personality type, everyone collects something or eagerly anticipates a new purchase.
Whether it be DVDs, clothes - I buy into it. I'm like the ultimate capitalist - happy to contribute to the world's economy (and not burn CDs so artists get paid for their art!).
Check out my latest acquisition. It's Miles O'Brien from the Deep Space Nine episode 'Trials and Tribble-ations', courtesy of Mr. Anderson who knows just how much enjoyment I get out of receiving new things. Especially Star Trek things (I found your Muse CD by the way).
I'm only thinking about this cause I went shopping today in an attempt to shake off the monster hangover I obtained after Aaron's birthday shindig last night. In short - very very drunk. I stupidly decided to mix Whiskey with Bacardi and several types of beer. I also managed to swipe several lighters from people (I'm so SICK of people taking my fucking lighters and not giving them back!!!). So the way I see it, it's smoker's Karma.
My red headed bombshell of a mate Lollie was right there with me, although as usual garnering more than her fair share of attention. This is why I've been going to the gym.
It was great to not have to be ferrying a car load full of cranky, drunken (and sometimes vomiting) partygoers all to their respective homes. This is often my responsibility.
So after reverting to my 17 year old state for a night, and a hangover that felt like an ice pick through my skull, shopping ensued to ease my troubled soul. I walked from store to store in the searing heat, making a rare visit to the city.
"I have to buy something. I mean I drove all this way, right?"
So of course I surrendered to the salty goodness of a purchase and found me a Gorillaz DVD.
What can I say - the Australian dollar would be nothing without people like me around.
the end
