I've been looking back through my weblog. Are too many of my postings about buying things? Books, CDs, games, furniture, blah, blah, blah....... I shop therefore I am?

And postings too about clearing bin bags full of rubbish out of the loft. A steady trickle of parcels from Amazon, BOL, GMT, eBay and The Games Store in through the front door, and a corresponding stream of filled bin bags back out of the front door. And of course this flow of stuff is mirrored by a flow of money through my bank account. Is this what it means to be a consumer? Is this the outline of my life? Feels vaguely shameful, today......
