The Year of Acquiring Nothing: Slips #2 and #3

Okay acquiring nothing is going to be harder than I thought.

#2: The existing 5-year old laptop has a serious virus that would require serious Geek Squad help. Rather than put the money into the old piece, we have ordered a new Dell, that has, thanks to advances in technology, a hard drive that has 12 times more capacity than the old one. (I guess this counts as a big slip.)

#3: Trying to plan a European train journey online is next to impossible. The resources just aren't there unless you are taking an mainline route. So I broke down and bought the Thomas Cook European Rail Timetable.

  2. The market is so saturated I would just go buy a home now. You don't need to pay someone to look for the house for you, the money you save there will let you spend a few here and there without all this guilt!!!!!!!!!!
