well, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it. ah, i'm a pitiful soul. i typed an email to one of my pf pals, my own hand-holder (you know who you are) about my conviction to wait, my more pressing financial priorities right now, my consolation that i'm still young, will spend the $ i have now on clothes and enjoy what i have instead of obsessing and saving, will get a kelly when i'm 38/39/40 (it's good to have a goal, you know), blah blah blah. then i read the various posts here, see the mention of the scratched to hell kelly on eBay for $1,3something and start to plot, start to justify. then i regain control but i'm on eBay and look around and find one in excellent condition for $2,9something and i'm back to plotting and scheming and then i take my case to my dh who patiently shakes his head, handling my fragile sanity delicately, he still strongly feels that eBay is too great a risk. i counter that tpf ladies know, and if they say it's real, blah blah and he offers, but you might not get what you see in the picture. he's got me there. not worth the risk and worry is his final vote, and honestly, the thought of a brand new one fresh from the store (even if it's not for nearly a decade) lures me away from my get-kelly-quick schemes. so i will wait, but i've revealed myself to me - no matter the explanation, no matter the prioritization, no matter what, i will lust for that bag. here's to waiting the long, practical, responsible, inevitable wait. ps i want to thank everyone on tpf for sharing pics and knowledge with me and i'm going to continue to enjoy all of it for a long long ... long long long long time. but seriously, since i only contribute enthusiasm, thank you all for letting me be a member of the fan club.
