I like to buy stuff. You like to buy stuff. We all like to buy stuff. Stuff like food, maybe. Or stuff like gadgets and things with engines. Perhaps you like to buy sexy stuff, or practical stuff. But we all buy stuff, and we like buying said stuff.

So what is some stuff that you've bought recently or are preparing to buy? Large things? Expensive things? Things that you probably shouldn't be buying but you're going to anyway because you just got that shiny new credit card to add to your collection...

Personally, I'm gearing up for:

apple-imac-aluminum.jpg

-and-

15878d1182909273-another-head-turner-smartcar.jpg

-and maybe-
2_carat_round_brilliant_diamond_ring.jpg
Actual ring not shown



What about the rest of you?

    How much do those run? I need to trade in my 98 Ford Contour for SOME sort of hybrid. Anything that doesn't run SOLELY on gasoline. $4.87 for a gallon of gas? Fuck that!

    1997 NFC Championship Game - Packers vs. 49ers 1/11/1998

    I'm of the mind that Sausage McMuffins entirely beat out ANY other kind of fastfood breakfast sandwich. Does McDonald's have english muffins under contract? Because Jack's, Carl's, and everyone else, like, doesn't have an English muffin sandwich. Are they not allowed to?

    The roadster looks awesome, but chances are it's not available in the US and it would be out of my price range anyway.

    Also screw you guys the car gets over 60mpg and gas sucks right now.
