Digital Age? Really Miss Victoria?

Okay, I admit it, I'm a frustrated gadget-o-phile. I drool over websites full of digital cameras (my cellphone camera just doesn't do the trick), sewing machines, cellphones, iPods and charger/speaker docks, 11 cup food processors...for someone committed to teaching the younger generation to value experiences over acquisitions, I sure want an awful lot of stuff.

Ahem. Physician, heal thyself, yeah I know. I can sort of justify the digital camera...(wouldn't it be great to be able to take really terrific pictures of my classroom...and...my....cakes?)....and....the sewing machine....(just think of all the cute/useful/nifty things I could make for my classroom and Criminals!)...and...yeah. That's about it.

Good thing I don't use credit cards. I'd work myself into some serious debt in five seconds.


  1. Attempted justification follows: children nowadays are so techno-savvy that if you DON'T keep up with at least some of it, the Criminals will disdain you and discard everything else you try to teach them.

    Does that help? ;-)

  2. Hm. Do you think that will justify a sewing machine? Right, me neither. Digital camera though...drool...
