packrat-2…and this time i am talking about the back-up storage system for mac.

i accidently deleted a bunch of stuff i had in my seminary folder.  a bunch of my old papers, essays, notes.  dah!!  i’ll probably never look at them again, but still.  dangit!!

i’m totally a pack-rat.  i always think of the “what-if” cases:

what if i need my receipt for the coffee i drank a couple months ago?

what if i forget how to use my adult sippy cup?  i should keep my instruction manual.

what if i need my expired chap-stick in the future?

you know, the usual what-if questions.  are there any other pack rats out there?

  1. i thought your OS had one.
    i’m a pack rat with receipts, bills, clothes (thinking that’d i’d lose weight unrealistically one day), school papers/notes (thinking that i’d find it useful one day, knowing that i never reference it), stubs and other traces of cultural events… and a few others i can’t think of right now.
