collecting Oakleys is an emotional trainwreck for me

@Pospaintballer thread earlier got me thinking about collecting Oakley as a hobby. I'd noticed that my emotions roller-coasted on a daily basis. Why?

Search ebay and forum with nothing to buy - boredom
Something nice pops up - excitement
PM seller - optimistic
no deal - disappointment -> start from beginning
DEAL! - happiness
Paypal payment - trepidation
moments after PP - guilty
Seller ships out - anxiety
track EMS/USPS/Fedex/DHL - agony
package arrived - relieved
opening package - happiness
seeing it for the first time - extreme happiness
wearing it for the first time -smugness
one day later - EMPTY
start next hunt

just ranting really ... and raking up posts .... ;)

I think most of us are in the same boat.

Literally all but one of my Oakley purchases were unexpected so the guilt part hits pretty hard.

Well, what OP describes goes for all internet purchases, the symptoms are the same, and the diagnosis is : Shopaholic,
