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.
