I finally broke down and joined the rest of the materialistic capitalist world by joining Amazon.com. I had read and heard such good things about it. I created my account and lo and behold, I am hooked and ready to buy buy buy! It’s pretty pathetic actually. I am still completely baffled by the power of purchasing new merchandise. I know it makes me happy. So does that mean that you can actually buy happiness? Well, probably only small portions of happiness – unless you are incredibly wealthy.
