The Miser Goes Wild

August 5, 2003

[greedy miser]I’m a miser. For months, years, I have been talking about certain books and music as things I “should get”, things that would be “good to have”. But this is the guy who was unhappy that rainy day when Kay bought a new umbrella to replace our broken one (“it still worked!”). That was many years ago, and hopefully Kay has civilized me somewhat, but I’m still reluctant to spend any more than necessary.

But in a fit of “if I don’t do it, it’ll never happen,” I went wild and ordered a bunch of stuff on Amazon and

Whew! For me, a veritable orgy. Expect to hear more about these over the coming weeks.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. Hey, there are several items that I own! Ha! Every now and then, doesn’t it feel good to do that? :^D

  2. I think you’ll be glad, eventually, of all you just purchased. I own most of it as well. I do the same thing often. There’s just so much out there!!! Can’t get it all at one time, though.
