I tend not to buy on the internet simply because I'm constantly forgetting my passwords. I'm a big catalog buyer, so I thought I'd be a natural for internet. I think I bought my last set of pots and pans from the Chef's catalog via internet. I live in a tourist town, and we have several small gourmet shops. All things being equal, I'll buy from them rather than go to Chicago or use a mail order place (or internet); they know this and give me a discount because so few local people (as opposed to tourists) shop here in town. Right now I need a pasta machine, and typically, the one I want (either a Mercato or Atlas, I threw our Imperia away in a pique of frustration, which I should have done as soon as I bought it -- returning it would have cost more in shipment that the darned thing was worth), but of course I can't remember my password with Amazon. Oh, dear, me. Am I the only moron?
