Oh My...

Do you know how it is when there's something that you don't want to look at too closely because you know it's not healthy?

It's that thing that will suck you in if you fall into its gravitation field and might never give you back. It's that thing that has been floating around for years, and whenever it ambles towards you, you yelp and jump and duck and hide under the table because you know it's NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

And then, one day, when you're unsuspectingly surfing the internet in your lunch break, wanting nothing more than a distraction as you can't leave the office because the rain is falling in sheets, you stumble into its pit that is filled with doom and destruction, and you know it's too late. You were weak for only one second, and that single second was enough.

Your world will never be the same. There are some things that can't be shaken off. They cling to you. They clutch your legs with their viscous claws, leaving marks upon the very core of your being. They stick to you, and they suck you dry like a leech gorging on a succulent lamb fresh out of the womb.

In other words: I discovered Etsy.

Noooooooo!!!!!!! *tries to pull you away*

And that, my friend, is why I avoid BPAL. I know I'd end up with a similar fate.

*Clings to you and tries not to look over my shoulder at all the shiny things*

I have no idea what BPAL is and I'm so not going to google it.

I found out about BPAL *checks* 27 days ago. I now own over 100 imps (sample vials) and 12 full bottles. It's sick.

Oh my god, I understand completely. I have only recently managed not to spend my entire paycheck on etsy, and now I am only spending half of my paycheck. This is a considerable improvement.

Did you know there are crocheted bikinis? In orange? And vintage shoes! I mean seriously. This stuff should come with a warning. I'm only human. *whines*

Etsy has everything you may or may not have ever wanted! It makes you want things you don't need! :( (Are you really getting the orange bikini? Please model it for us when it comes in!)

I'm going on a three week hiking tour, so I need sensible stuff. But oh how I want a crocheted orange bikini. If I get it (which I don't because I can't because how do you explain an orange crocheted bikini), I'll post pictures so you can all laugh about the flower that's strategically placed on the boobies.

I could use the pounce features on Etsy for hours, and probably have... such pretty, lovely things.

Oh God. I hadn't discovered the pounce feature yet. *gurgles*
