You may have seen me mention a few times that I’m putting together a Blizzard fans Marquee Meetup at our local Australia Day foreshore celebrations. The event is in a week and a half and I am starting to STRESS OUT.
The easy parts are all done now: I’ve secured prizes and cash donations, I’ve locked in what events we’ll be doing and I’ve begun promoting it where I can. That leaves all the trickier parts like decorations and set-up.
But I am worried so much. What if no-one comes? What if I have missed something super important and it’s a disaster? Most importantly, though, what am I going to wear?!
So, while I was purchasing the last few things I needed from the Blizzard store, I spied this awesome Horde singlet made by Welovefine. A singlet is definitely something I want, when Australia Day is usually a toasty 40c/104f degrees, plus the usual “gamer girl tees” are not flattering at all on me.
Unfortunately they were sold out, so I thought I’ve have a look at Welovefine directly. I got lucky, and I found this beauty:
I LOVE IT AND IT AND MY DESIRE FOR IT OVERTOOK ALL MY SENSES.
Before I knew it, I was transferring money into my PayPal account and hitting that ‘Submit Order’ button before logic and money smarts could regain control.
Here is the mathematics behind my insanely expensive impulse buy:
- The shirt is $28 USD.
- The event is on 26 January, so I needed express international posting. That cost me $28.44 USD.
- Currently, the Australian Dollar is worth $0.66 US dollars.
- That means a $28 USD dollar shirt ended up costing $85.36 AUD. Ouch!
If this shirt doesn’t arrive in time, or it looks like crap, I am going to be one seriously heartbroken lady.
What was your last impulse buy? Did you love it, or regret it? Let me know in the comments below.
PS. I know, I know. I went from a Horde top to an Alliance one, but that’s okay! I play for both sides 😉
