Gaia did it. They FINALLY found something that has me hooked. I've spent about $50 on those fucking things. Well. I have my Dark Halo and my Solar Cloak (next in line is the Lunar cloak... Not TOO bad, around 200k). But you know? I'm spending my share of the bribe money and we DON'T EVEN HAVE IT YET...

... this is making my poor self-control glaringly evident. It's occurred to me that I'm doing this because they're 99 cents a piece, I enjoy Gaia, and I've been pumping all of MY allowance into paying bills; I feel like I haven't done something really nice for MYSELF in a long while. But $50? C'mon, Josh... Get a grip...

So last Friday at Bree's party, Betty was all nice to me and shit. The course of the conversation turned to Napster and how she couldn't figure out how to cancel the subscription. Well, look in the FAQ, lady... but honestly, she's about a year and a half from retirement. Her first exposure to a PC happened at work, where she has no "prodding freedom", and she doesn't use her personal PC (about a year and a half old) very often. So I offered to find out how to cancel it for her, since Treasure Trooper has a $3/2 gold coin offer for Napster. I figured I'm going to do that one shortly, might as well preemptively figure it out since the trial is only for a week.

She has her information aaaaaaaand I'm apparently on her shitlist again.

I'm trying to figure out how I feel about this. On the one hand, I didn't do it because she was being nice to me. I've helped her with her PC at work when she's been a bitch and had no problem with it, and I wouldn't have had a problem with it this time. So why am I irritated about it? Probably the two-facedness, but honestly: I expect that from her by now.

I dunno. Probably a mix of everything right now.

I think I'm accepting that I have an addictive personality. Come to think of it, I'm ALWAYS doing SOMETHING in excess. It just so happens that my stomach hurts tonight and I can't drink.

Maybe I'll do some looking up on that in Borders this weekend. Last time I checked addiction stuff out, it was always assumed and hence focused on substance addiction. I'm pretty good at keeping that part of it in check. I don't want to be my father.

This should probably be flocked, but eh. I'm too lazy to flock it. How sad is that?
