... for not buying this when I had the chance. Living in an apartment in New York leads one to be circumspect about acquiring things, and I've really tried to cut back on my acquisitiveness since I've lived here, in part by imposing a waiting period on myself when I see something I want to buy. I decided I really did want this and it would be a good purchase that would fit nicely with my other typewriters and my academic interests, only to discover that it had already been sold and that the other one on the site is ten times the cost! Oh well. You win some, you lose some, I guess.
