For The Geek Who Has Everything

Update: For everyone who complained today and said that they couldn't see the link below, I have moved the movie to YOUTUBE, so all you technological throwbacks still on dialup should be able to view it now.

I don't know why I feel the need to blow all my hard earned money time and again on the latest technological doo-dahs that come out on the market, but I fully admit to it being a sickness of mine. If I see a new gadget in a store, I start to drool over it like a Pavlovian mutt while the rational part of my mind chants over and over again like a mantra how "I don't need to buy that". Without fail, in the end I kick the rational part of my mind to the curb and buy whatever it is that has me in the Rainman-like state in the first place.

Case in point:

I have absolutely NO need for this. But here I sit owning it anyway. It really is a sickness.
For what it's worth, this has made me laugh like Hell all weekend playing around with this thing. That's GOT to count for something, doesn't it?

Maybe not, but right not I don't care too much. When the warm afterglow of newness is over, and I realize how much I just spent on something so NEEDLESS in my life, then I'll curl up in a fetal position on the floor and cry for a bit. Right now I'm too busy laughing my ass off.
