My “To-Buy Someday” List

This is the list I mentioned yesterday, of the things I’m going to do and buy when I have money again someday!

– New sneakers (in a pretty color!).

– All the itunes songs I want (that’s a separate two page list).

– New Airport router (the old one is so sloooooow).

– Take up the coat I inherited and make it a jacket.

– New winter hat (I’ve got one all picked out).

– Speakers for the tv (this should be at the top of the list, I long for really great sound for my tv).

– A kayak trip on the Shenandoah River (this is going to be a tricky one because I also have to find people to go with me).

– Repaint apartment (yes, I know the landlord is supposed to do this, but if I do it through him he will hire guys that will do a bad job and they’ll use cheap white paint only).

– Mobile file cart (for all the piles of files on my desk).

– Remede Sweep.

Don’t cry for me, not that anyone is, because I’m not starving or anything and I have a very nice life! Like a lot of other people I’m just at a period where I must be frugal. But I’m fine, really!!

This picture is from my recent Bronx haunted house expedition. I took this walking back to the subway stop that would take me home.

  1. Or come down to North Carolina and I’ll meet you for whitewater rafting on the Natahala (

  2. The Shenandoah has plenty of white-water rafting. Best to leave the white-water kayaking, though, to the pros – or be prepared for lots of instruction.

    Do you know that you have some very highly regarded kayak (“touring” AKA “sea kayaking”) instructors/tour/sales/rental outfits on the Hudson? Marshall at The River Connection Inc (Hyde Park) is a contributor to (enter daily for a chance to win a free kayak). Their site is:

    Or come to Chesapeake Bay. My son gives kayak lessons or tours of varying lengths, complete with stops at waterfront restaurants for lunch. Warning – kayaking can be addictive.
