Why haven't I done this before?

So I brought my laptop with me to campus today and while I was struggling to pay attention in my Philosophy of the Arts class (no offense to the professor), I decided to head on over to Anthro.com and do a little day-dreaming.

As I was perusing their lovely Home accessories, I started to add things to my shopping bag, just to see how much it would cost to turn my dreams into a reality. Now I have a friend who seems to be the Queen of this and I now understand why she does it so often - IT'S SO MUCH FUN. Also a little depressing (because hey! who has that kind of money?!), but fun all the same. And it helped me pay attention to our discussion on Aristotle and Nietzsche. Funnily enough, today's class was a continuation of our discussion on why we enjoy tragedy.

Well, I think I learned the lesson for today.
