Lucky Pennies

I spent a lot of time the other day counting up the spare change that constitutes a healthy part of funding for this project the other day. I've come to the conclusion that pennies are bad for me. They have a quality that I find impossibly seductive -  they are such a small denomination that when you count them out you can end up with hundreds. If you don't think too hard, (okay, at all,) owning hundreds of currency is amazing! It's money! And there is hundreds of it! And if you check every single penny to make sure that it isn't randomly valuable, you pretty much get to splash in a small puddle of currency for hours. If you squint, it's the next best thing to bathing in Cristal. Long story short, my general sense of perspective is being slowly warped by spare change. 

But I love my pennies. All this change really does add up. Not quite to the point where I'm going to be buying Sennheisers out of nickels, but at the very least I can see my entire dv-tape budget being taken exclusively from the spare change I've gotten. Pretty groovy.
