New to cups - Just bought my first last week.

A weird thing just happened to me... My life has been turned upside down by a little silicone cup.

Not only has it saved me NZ$2.50 since it arrived on Friday afternoon, and was the subject of what I think was my first ever conversation about menstruation with my dad (after only 20 years of it), but I'm looking forward to my period starting again!
Now I wonder: How did I survive so long without it? How many can I justify buying? Why are they so damned hard to find in NZ? Should I get a pink one to match my hair or a MiaCup to match my name or both? Will the mouse try to eat it, like he did my chocolate and my dad's toothpaste? Will my friends get sick of me telling them all about it? what if I suddenly go through an early menapause and don't get to use my cup for very long at all? Why are there so many songs about rainbows, and what's on the other side?

EDIT: OK, The MiaCup is Pink! It's even a very similar shade to my hair. 2 cups with 1 stone? I wonder if the ship to NZ.
