opposite of buyers remorse?

I spent an hour & a half at Value Village tonight and left with nothing. nothing.

At one point I had The Daily Show’s, Earth: The Book in my hand as well as Madeleine L’Engle’s, An Acceptable Time, but eventually decided to leave them both behind. What I think I might regret not buying the most though, is this pair of shoes:

forgotten video

Over the past 5 years or so, every so often, my mind has drifted towards a video that I watched a few times on Much Music in the mid 90’s.

Choosing a colour for my future Kanken

I have always been a bag lady. Years ago – going to & from school; curretnly – going to &  from work, I almost always have multiple bags hanging off my appendages.

These days the lopsided, heavy, awkward baggage is just not working for me.

So back to a backpack it is for me.

I am leaning towards the red one for a nice splash of colour.

Breakdancing WOW.

A couple of things that went through my head while watching this video for the 2nd time (the first time there was only awe):

“I wonder how stretchy his jeans are?”,

“what’s with the door in the background” (not to mention the broken glass, pointed out by Black Eiffel),

but mostly just more “Wow!”.
