Hobbies, and why mine’s the best…

rkm04eee-pc-900haMandi and I had a good laugh recently on the subject of hobbies – she’s recently taken up running, and not in an “I occasionally break into a jog while I walk the dog” running, but in an “I’ve spent over $350 on running clothes and shoes, and I just bought a bike for when I’m not running” running.  So I was teasing her on the reasons for which a normally rational person would purchase running shoes when they already have a perfectly good paid of cross-trainers, and she pointed out to me that my latest netbook purchase is not that different from the netbook I already have.

To people outside the hobby group, incremental increases in equipment may seem non-sensical and exorbitant, but to those in the know, the difference between the old one and the new one is priceless.

I just wish this explained why Mandi needs 17 jackets and coats…
