It's F5 time :)

1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?

Well, yes and no. I have a bad tendency to spend money I don't actually have (on credit, or money I'm supposed to save for something else). Money burns a hole in my pocket. But I love getting new things, and bringing home loot! I'm a careful shopper: I gotta have a plan, and more often than not I end up buying only what I know I want. Which pleases me.

2. What was the last thing you purchased?

Sarah McLachlan's new album. Yay.

3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?

Definitely online. Walking around shopping makes my feet muchly sore, and besides, malls are thoroughly evil, like black holes for stirring up and draining folks' energy. Buying stuff online can be a bit worrisome, 'cause it can be difficult to know if a store(site) is trustworthy, and also whether you'll get precisely what you want. But I've had no bad experiences yet, and there's a world of goods out there to loot. :D Oh yeah, I love a bit of suspense as well - something to look forward to.

4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?

For several years my sister and I got as much allowance as we worked for - three dollars per hour for housework - over and above a basic amount of pocket money, if memory serves. Might've been about ten dollars.

5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?

I did regret buying my handbag and sunglasses right after I bought them because they took up a big glop of money in one day. They're the sort of practical things that one needs, but for which I loathe paying money. Yet despite the fact that I never really thought I'd enjoy sunglasses, I have.
