    Yeah... but... Rainbow Dash! Plus, I can already clear the driveway in 10 seconds flat.

    Does paying for a plumber count?

    ^I'd say so. That usually ends up being a major expense.

    Well, that depends on how you chose to... reimburse him.

    Wait, I must have confused reality with a bad porn script. Again.

    Uhm, anyway, my latest purchase: Just ordered a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone since my trusty old Motorola MOTORAZR V9 is in the process of dying a horrible, horrible tech-death.

    So. Happy. <3

    :guffaw:





    Had a bit of time to kill mid-afternoon, and in need of a sugar & caffeine hit, so had an espresso and Plaisir. Forgive the excuse for a mini-rant, but Maison Blanc remains one of the most frustratingly inconsistent patisseries: sometimes excellent, sometimes very mediocre indeed. Today was reasonably good. It's not a place I visit often because of that inconsistency, however. If they consistently put out their highest quality product, I would be a fairly regular customer. Still, my waistline is grateful for the variability... ;)

    100€ deducible for the insurance company.

    I backed into a Corolla in the parking lot. Nothing happened to my car, but my tow hook (i hate the damn thing) bashed in the front bumper of the Corolla. The entire thing must be replaced.

    I've been driving for two years now and i haven't crashed a single car in traffic. (crashes on the racetrack doesn't count) but now that i can actually drive and i'm not beginner anymore, i back into someone...

    The Corolla owner should be paying you for making his car look more interesting.

    Hey! I'm two days from buying an identical Corolla. :angryrazz:
    But mine has a 2.0 liter turbocharged 225bhp engine, coil-overs and 17 inch rims with R tires.

    We cashed in some AmEx points for gifts cards to Williams Sonoma and got a Staub frying pan.

    And also picked up some of those Fig Newton Thins--actually good cookies where you only need one or two to be happy with the snack.

    Besides that, I got some Disney pins I collect. A couple that cost a bit, one that was pretty cheap.

    :lol:

    No worries, I only leave TNZ... let's say 'occasionally' :lol:
    Forgive me if that sounds like a really stupid question, but what do you actually do with them? Or are you more of a nostalgic PDA collector? ;)
