  • Come on over to , the new archive community for old Writer's Block questions!
  • There has to come a lot of thinking by this one...I think I never really felt guilty for buying something, so I can scrap that right away. Maybe silly...Ehr..
    I know!
    I went to town once with a friend a few years ago. We saw these cute little puppets of little dogs. They're called 'Dogz'.
    But..They were really expensive. So we agreed that we'd only buy 2. When we just bought them, we looked at each other and said: "All right, only one more!"
    We went back inside the shop and both bought another one. The lady behind the counter was pretty grumpy, so we rushed out as soon as we could.
    Only..A few minutes later..We went back inside again and waited untill someone else took over the counter.
    Then we both bought one again.

    I felt pretty silly at the moment, and now I look back, it's pretty stupid. We wasted about 4 euro's each for some stupid puppets xD
  • Haha, some of these writer's block things are good. C: But let's see, the question was: What product have you felt guiltiest, or silliest, for buying? Well, I think the guiltiest thing was my jr. prom dress. A few days after we bought it, I started to regret it. :( It sucks cause I felt happy with it in the shop, but as soon as we brought it out I had mixed feelings. :\ Sillest, I would have to say... were these 2 toothbrushes that I bought from a craft-shop. They're were like, really ghetto, cause they were like, thin pieces of plastic and the bristles were all the same length so it was your basic toothbrush. But they had Hello Kitty and a panda on them and I had planned on making bracelets with them cause I saw how to online, but I never did. ;__; I feel like scum. YES ANNY I AM THINKING OF YOU. Maybe I should get you something else. As soon as I find a job. And get some money, then I will buy a really nice present. :)
  • I feel idiotic buying DVDs of any TV show... because I already have them by other means, so it's just a slight upgrade in quality and a waste of money. But I still do it.
  • Nature's Cure. Yes, I bought that crap freshman year. It didn't work. In fact, it made things worse. I returned it by mail and got a full refund, which made me pretty happy. My second group of kids got here today. I can't imagine going to camp for two weeks if I was a camper. Maybe it's just because I was used to only one week, but wow, I would have gotten so bored. It rained today, which was disappointing but not the worst thing ever. We went down to the dining hall and sang stupid songs and watched videos of a white-water rafting trip. I have Wednesday off, my parents are visiting next Saturday, Kailee might visit on Sunday, I have part of Monday off, and then my mom will probably visit again sometime late next week. My face HURTS. Whatever stuff I'm using on it makes it hurt a lot when I'm out in the sun. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh. If you pray, please pray that these two weeks go by quickly for me. They shouldn't be bad, I just want them done ASAP. I had a nice day off, though. I brought Jevon home, saw Kyle, went out to DePauw, had dinner with my parents, went to Meijer, made Father's Day muffins for my dad, ate a good egg whites and portobella mushroom and spinach omelette, ate some coconut cream pie yogurt, and went to bed around 2:30. Nice. I woke up this morning and went running, then left and picked up Jevon and came to camp. It was a good 24 hours. Love to you all:)
  • Anything Hello Kitty!  But I'm obsessed!
  • I feel kind of silly for buying a lot of the clothes I have.  I can't wear them anymore and I feel silly when I look at them all and realize I have to pack them up and send them off to City Mission or Goodwill or something because they're all still really good clothes, they just don't fit. 

    I spent a few hundred dollars on clothes at one point and now I can't wear any of them.  Granted a lot of them I just need to throw out because they're all ripped out in the thighs.....

    I shouldn't buy so many damned clothes.
  • I bought a furby when I was little. I feel both silly and disturbed by this. It used to wake up (on its own) in the middle of the night and start talking. By far the creepiest toy I ever owned. I hope you all have seen gremlins; furby is a gremlin. I also bought a fender squire at one point. As pretty and cool as it looks, I feel a bit silly for buying it. It doesn't keep tune well and I hardly ever play it. I'm much more of an acoustic girl.
  • The soundtrack to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: The Movie.
  • Hahaha, I should send this to my friend James Lemuix. He bought $120 worth of Balsa wood that is still sitting in his closet months later. For me, though, I felt guiltiest for buying my $180 Diesels. Despite the fact that I had a 40% discount and they were effing nice jeans, after traveling through India, I realized how much money that is to some people around the world. I'm sure if I told anyone in the poorer sectors of India how much I paid for them they would tell me I'm crazy, haha. Now that I think about it, I feel even worse, lol. When it comes down to it, they're just pants... something to put on my legs so I can keep warm. Maybe I should just start making my own clothing... Lightbulb!
