Mostly the past few days we’ve been spending money as if the colorful stuff is the paper of Monopoly. Toyota took a good chunk of our change today. The house is gobbling up all kinds of funds thanks to Home Depot, Canadian Tire, EQ4, HomeConnections, AutoPac, HomeSpace, Sears, and a host of other oddly named franchises. I must say that most of the goods we’ve purchased so far have been of a slightly shoddier or equal quality than those in the U.S. I don’t know why this would be the case and I wonder if this is just cultural pre-conditioning affecting my (perhaps poor) judgment but the final quality of the good we’re purchasing does seem to be of the lesser sort.
One other thing – I need RAM for my Mac. For the life of me, it’s very hard to find a store (online or otherwise) that is willing to sell me big ol’ RAM for my laptop. If you know of someone who vends the stuff that is not Apple, please let me know. Thanks for keeping the credit cards thin!
