Confessions of a shop-a-holic

So, yesterday while I was home sick from work I got a little bored and went online shopping.  I don't normally buy a lot of merchandise online.  I prefer to see the product first and hold it in my hand before I purchase something.  I'm weird like that.  But yesterday I may have gotten a little carried away -- I went on a bit of a spree...

I had been debating whether or not to preorder this DVD set, but I finally decided -- yes, I need to own this series:
Sports Night 10th Anniversary Edition Complete Series DVD Set
It's being release at the end of September so I have something to look forward to in the fall!  Yay!  I haven't actually seen an episode of Sports Night since 2001, but I really loved the series back then.

I can't believe I do not already own this:
The American President
It's only my favorite Aaron Sorkin film ever (Charlie Wilson's War runs a close second, followed by A Few Good Men)!  I used to have a video cassette of The American President, but I literally watched it so many times that I wore it out.  But even if I hadn't worn out the video, I don't actually own a VCR anymore.

I don't really need this item, and I don't really have a place to put it, but I really want it:
Boeing-Boeing show poster
Okay, I haven't actually ordered this yet, but I'll probably break down before long.  I may be moving to a new place in the next 6 months, and I'm thinking about decorating my guestroom/study in neutral tones with splashes of red.  With the right frame and mat, it should make a nice focal point.

I think I've spent enough money on stuff I don't need for a while, don't you?

I see nothing wrong with those purchases! Unfortunately, I own the old SN dvds or I'd get the new set.

Right now I have a shopping cart on Amazon that has An American Crime in it.

It makes me feel better that you think there's nothing wrong with buying all those items! I've been rationalizing it by telling myself that I've been working hard lately and deserve to splurge a little.

Have you seen An American Crime already? I'm thinking about ordering it later. Let me know if you like it!

Cool the Boeing-Boeing show poster is tempting & I'd for-sure buy the t-shirt if only brad was on it!

I considered the t-shirt too, but the fact that Brad wasn't on it was the deciding factor against. I would never wear it anyway, it would have been more of a keepsake kind of thing.
