I have just made a terrible mistake.

A wonderful, glorious and terrible mistake.

I received the email tonight from Blue Moon. They told me there were openings, that if I hurried I'd be able to sign up for the Sock Club. I spent only an hour or two staring at the payment page wondering if I should enter my information and jump into the $210.00 lake that is the Sock Club.

Normally this decision would be very simple for me. Normally I would blink once, then sign up immediately. This time around I have no job and very little money. I've been filling in here and there for a few clams there and here, which means I have a bit of money. All of this money should be spent on paying my insurmountable debt. Instead, I somehow managed to rationalize that the Sock Club was more important than said debt. Hopefully I will soon have a steady income to validate me.

Tell me you understand. Please.

In the morning Mike will wake up and say, "Hugo, what did you do?" I will shrug and avoid eye contact. This is a yarn purchase that is not exactly easy to hide. I can't hide the Sock Club behind the movies or behind my other yarn.

You're not judging me negatively, are you? I'm very responsible. I really am. I just have certain weaknesses. Yarn weaknesses.

I would have totally done the same thing. And SOCKS! we as people NEED socks.
Would Mike have given you the same look if you had bought into the UNDERWEAR club? ;-) I think not!

Oh my' I've come over to your blog because I thought your comment on Harlot was so elegant and now I sound like a Valley Girl. tsk tsk
