Hey 8, your girlfriend's name is Impreza, too? Wow, small world...I only just ordered cable TV (and internet access!) after living in my apartment for over 2 years. I still don't have long distance telephone service (well, if I don't have it I won't be tempted to use it!). I have no kitchen furniture. I haven't been clothes shopping in over a year. I buy Acme brand products :-x...I also just sign over my paychecks to various vendors and private sellers here. To hell with the cost of living, it's speed I want!
