Interesting mental processes

One of my bosses gave me a $50 gift card to Amazon.com - and was hoping that was okay (he clearly still doesn't know me very well.)

I'm paralyzed.

It's weird - I'll order a reference book with my own money, sight unseen, and if it turns out to be a dud... I don't feel too bad about it.  Since I can't look at most of these in advance, it's just the way it goes.  I plan to either donate them, or give them to another scadian, or... whatever.  But now that it's literally free money, I'm sweating it not wanting to "waste" it.

The whole thing is irrational.  And so very me.

On that typical note, Merry Christmas everyone.

I loooooove amazon GCs. I almost *never* get a dud because I know what I want...and I also scour reviews, compare to other stuff, and check every page of the sample/preview (there almost always is one, now). Also, you don't have to buy books. Amazon sells everything under the sun. Mineral drops. Rock salt lamps. Bookshelves, weight lifting equipment, essential oils, cookie stamps...everything. Have fun with your GC. :)
