She just shrugs her shoulders, and in private we laugh about the fact
that she knew I collected computers (and books) long before we got
married. Usually, when I spot a new toy and talk to her about it, she
rolls her eyes upward, sighs, and says "How much?" She sees that I use
most of the collection at some point and that I'm not throwing money
away (I manage the budget anyway, so I don't think I could if I tried).
I'm also lucky in that she's a worse clutterbug than I am, so even if my
collections take up more volume, her stuff is in the way a lot more than
Oh, and what kitchen-ware would you get for an empty Sun E10K chassis?
I'm still trying to figure out if I want to haul it home from the local
junk collector. And I'd rather have my mini-van than an SUV - my
Windstar with the seats removed has about 60% more cargo space than a
comparable SUV because of the lower chassis.
