its a geek thing

for such a long time i have wanted my own domain name. it is, however, rather difficult to justify the $30 purchase on something so trivial – at a time when we are rather strapped for $$$ – particularly when the .com all of the names i identified with (lusted for) were taken – and .net is really second best.

i searched this morning and the one i want *now* is available. i will allegedly be getting a couple of extra dollars as back pay (when this amount will be paid, i am unsure – i imagine in the next pay period).

my quandry, of course, is can i waste my money on such a totally unnnecessary thing? when we are relying on just my income? when we have a large-ish outstanding debt to our beloved Uncle Nelly (which continues to bother me)? i suspect the answer is “no mrs hardly, that would be reckless and irresponsible”. sometimes being sensible just bites.

  1. Oh, be rash and irresponsible! Yes, you will have intense feelings of guilt and shame for a time, but it doesn’t hurt anyone to be frivolous now and then and it will give you a sense of happiness and completion about something you have yearned for!

  2. i think i will wait until fenton is gainfully employed again (and our debt is off my mind) before i lash out.

    that would be the Sensible approach. and the next week will involve some belt tightening (as i had to put aside a fair whack of $ for the adsl bill)

    besides, i already lashed out on those seed beads (now I have a couple of hundred left over to do something with! i can assure you that i will not be threading them on chunky crochet cotton any time soon!!!)
