I was just looking at my entertainment center, thinking to myself how materialistic I am, my life is so full of stuff... and then I looked at it again and pointed at the Playstation 2, and said aloud "but that was free." (I got it using Sony points, that I got on my credit card...) And then I thought about it a bit more, and pointed at another piece of the stereo, and another, and another... I've scavenged or gotten as gifts huge swaths of my living room. About the only things I paid for there are the TV and the coffee table. It's kinda... disturbing, really. What does it mean?
But it made me feel less wasteful. Some of that stuff was being thrown out.
