  • The scale of approval

    I've found that my enthusiasm for any given watch can be rated on this scale:

    1 - this watch caught my eye
    2 - I really enjoying thinking about, reading about, looking at photos of and, at a g2g, mauling this watch
    3 - I like this watch so much, I want to own it
    4 - I like this watch so much, I want to wear it reguarly
    5 - I love this watch so much, that I'm bothered when I'm not wearing it

    No.2 fills my days with pleasurable entertainment
    No.3 is the real danger
    Always eager to hear more

    Often I find this is the sticking point:
    3a - I can proceed with the expenditure.

        "Oh, are you selling your Deltoid Hut-Dweller? Haven't you only just got it?"

        "Yeah, it was the real 3b and I can't have the money tied up in something I'm not wearing."

        "Heh, that old story! How much of a hit are going to take on it?"

        "Oh, don't ask...."

          "That old story" - priceless.
          I'm now realizing that I while I still have money for watches tied up in watches (it's a self-funding hobby for me) I also have money for cars tied up in cars (no longer is it guitars/basses--I'm good with the current rigs).
          Two years from now I'll have money for univ. tuition tied up in all of the above, but the mortgage should be paid off, so perhaps I won't be in full-on sell mode. With luck the 529 will be of some help.
