It seemed a little, well, stupid.
I was trying to sell things and clear some much-needed space in my apartment. Yet when the opportunity to buy this Golden Bear jacket and an antique Brooks brothers car coat I just couldn't resist.
And today it's been snowing and it's cold and bitter out, so I feel very clever.
Total for both (one clothing forum find, one eBay) about $95, funded by the PayPal slush fund. So it's not even real money, right?
(With economic thinking like that I could be a star in the current administration. Hell, that's delusional enough for a congressman.)
