I got painfully bored and went in to add and delete things from my Amazon wishlist. Half the items on there are things that you still can’t get sent to you in Canada – cameras and minidisc players and other electronic toys. I’m as covetous of things I don’t have as the next person.

Someday I won’t be so poor. Someday I’ll be able to afford the cd I’ve had my eye on for the past year, or a digital camera to help me save money I’ve been spending on film. Someday things will change.
