Probably because ultimately I appreciate how pointless it is to surround myself with items I desire, I intently test out the theory. The most recent test has been an internet leather briefcase. The trick with internet consumption is to not believe the photos. As expected when my shiny yellow Italian leather briefcase turned up - I was unhappy as I unpacked a Metro-gully rexine-looking job. But I was relieved that I was still alive - I had consumed and I had not been satisfied. Long live the day.
