Default Help me spend my Christmas money!

Right, I'm left over from Xmas with roughly 100 quid in money that has no home yet (assuming I don't have to use it to avoid going overdrawn :'().

No, I won't be sending it to anyone, so don't even try :

Basically, saving ain't an option, I wanna treat myself.

It all boils down to three options, all with pro's and con's.

Clothing: I'm not in need of clothing, but my dress sense is something of a mish mash - that is, its jeans and a teeshirt pretty much all the time. I'm happy with this, but I have no definition to them. Most of my stuff is pretty generic stuff (usually whatever I can get for a fiver from primark) so as you can tell, I'm not exactly a clothing efficiendo, as I'm sure Tim and Circus can attest from my trampy appearence at GD.

I don't want a complete changeover which will get forgotten about 10 minutes later, but now I have some spare float, I can get something a bit more "me".

Gaming: Does this need any explaining? Stuff like L4D, couple of others etc, but I generally feel this is a waste, aside from L4D, I'm happy with the stuff I have at the minute.

Tattoo: This is the tar pit that has me stuck. I want to get my new tattoo, but it'll be more than what I've got, considering it's a whole sleeve job. There's the pro's and con's of saving - if I wait til my B-day, I might be able to go get the whole thing done, but thats months away and I would like to treat myself.

Something smaller/different isn't really an option, as it would feel like I am just spending for spendings sake, and wouldn't be happy with it.


Music/DvD's aren't on there, because I rarely buy thats stuff anyway, just not worried.

Results will not guarantee what I get, but might help push me in the right manner.

Circus didn't read the post, just clicked on the thread and thought "I'm gonna say tattoo" and then the poll came up and... well, guess what I clicked =P

What I'd do is get it outlined. Either the upper or lower bit, get the outlining done. That way it's all ready to be filled at a later date.

With regard the clothes... what kind of thing is a "bit more [you]"?

Still, ink.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Thats what always gets me stuck, to be honest. Not sure, aside from my raggy teeshirts and jeans, its hard to find something I like.

I must admit, Games was probably a poor category - I want L4D anyway, and will most likely get it anyway. Games as a category really meant more games, just splurge on them

Why any of them? If you're not already a member of one, you could use it to join a gym(provided you can keep going regularly) or go on a camping trip.

Clothing wise, shop online for the best deals. I wouldn't shop in stores unless they have a sale on (and online stores sell designer clothes relatively cheaply - you just need to know your size).

Don't bother with computer games, I've got a long list of games that i bought and have never finished.

Tattoos, bah. not my sort of thing personally, but if you like them, you like them.

You and Silk could combine, send me money to help me get an AK or an AR-15....


I know the answer though, so I'm not trying overly hard.

Save it for Mass Effect 2, or Dawn of War 2.

Worst idea in the history of man...He wants to give himself a treat, not pay for a years worth of masochistic "fun" with all the naked girlies taken out of the equation

I personally voted for self-mutilation...only a couple of hours worth though

But the thing is, you can't take the girlies out of the equation, or the benefits of actually going and getting excercise. :P

Until I manage to kick the smoking, just walking in the doors of a gym makes me want to walk slowly away and drink :P

Put it in the bank and watch it slowly turn to 101 quid!
