    Obsession

    How many times can you visit the TB site before it is qualified as stalking?

    Also, if I am looking at different bags (not just the Tristar, over and over...and over) does that count separately or all as an amalgam?

    Does 101 posts in 4 months count?

    Mind you, I've also bought two Ristrettos, an Aeronaut, two Absolute Shoulder Straps, nine assorted pouches, two wallets, an organiser cube, six key straps and 32 zipper pulls in the same time. And, if it wasn't for my wife threatening to divorce me, I'd quite like an Imago, and those Cafe Bags keep catching my eye! Another Aeronaut or a Tri-Star, for my wife, is however on the cards for next month ... I just want to try this one out first.

    What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop?

    I prefer to think the answer to your question is "at least one more click."

    Your genuine support and likemindedness warms my heart and brings a tear to my eye! Thanks to both of you...

    Now I have to click through 3 or 4 (OK, OK...7 or 8) items and see if the colors I want have come off of back order!

    Love this, Janine! It's much more positive than, "Hello, my name is ncb4, and I'm a Bihn-aholic." Not that I see that as a problem, mind you. Like you, jeffmac, I'm currently haunting the website in hopes that the Ultraviolet Dyneema items will come off backorder soon. So I've already got a Shop Bag, half a dozen Yarn Stuff Sacs (which are good for a lot more things than yarn), and more Organizers than I can keep track of: that doesn't mean I can't use more!

    hehe - i asked my son this question the other day, and he showed me by keeping one hand still and clapping on that still hand with the other. i said, no, you're still using the second hand. so then he showed me with the fingers of the one hand bending and clapping on the palm.

    I like the way your son's mind works!

    1) True story...I really did get asked in a philosophy class: "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?"
    My response: If I'm not around, I don't care.

    2) Darcy--step away from the computer. It's time to leave the internet alone for awhile. Perhaps a vacation? Without bags.

    I can do that. Oh, but I'll need to take my iPhone of course. And the iPad. I'll need a bag to carry both in -- I'm thinking the Ristretto. Sure, I can do that.

    As long as you're not camped out in front of the factory, I think it is healthy. When I was waiting for my MacBook Pro to arrive from Portland (less than 24 hours, man life is rough!) I spent my evening looking at unboxing videos on YouTube.

    Ummmm...<blinks guiltily>...

    You are not close to the window are you Katy? Because if you cant see out front of the building than I am going to continue to maintain that I am not there.

    A restraining order would make accessorizing SOOOO difficult!

    Dude, that's not a vacation - that's jail time.
