    Need to finish getting crap for my kitchen
    Eames Chair (probably just a DSR, no room for the lounger)
    More little pieces for the living room/bedroom

    ps3 and wii are apples and oranges. if you're a gamer, get the ps3. the kids have the wii, but we're converting from xbox360 to ps3.


    I was going to buy a Blu Ray shortly, but what I've read has convinced me to wait. Thought about a PS3, but am pretty happy with my Wii.

    Am browsing about for a new desk chair, but no firm ideas.

    May visit London while the pound is weak. Some other travel in the works too.

    details/pictures?
    The builder sent me some pictures last night. Few more months from being finished.

    71 914
    911rs motor built by Chris Mustane with haltek ecu running TWM ITBs-about 240 whp at 9000 rpm
    factory 916 gearbox out of 917
    930 turbo suspension and brakes.

    everything is custom made so kinda hard to know where to start and end.

    still tyring to get the rear wing to look right. Tried 4 sets of end plates. The wing is very contriversial but I need down force!!! There is also a front air dam and splitter not on the car in the picture.

    Haven't got wheels for it yet. Didn't know the exact demesions the car would be in the end so I had to wait. Probably get some classic CCWs to go with it.

    I'm far from a hardcore gamer. I mostly play with my girlfriend, and she goes for the Wii stuff. I'd like a PS3, but it's really a question of how much I'd use it. Don't need more electronics just sitting around.

    Actually trying to pare down on stuff that I own this year.

    Moving to Sacramento for a new job starting June 1, so between now and then will be having several yard sales and trying to sell our house.

    I am really looking forward to spending a bit of money this year. It is my first year out of college and I got a pretty decent paying job. I grew up with tight-wad parents in a tight-wad environment...

    Macbook (for mom)
    Frog Terrarium (estimating the build to be around $400)
    Desk+Chair (sister is interior designer and gets 90% off Herman Miller)
    2 season tickets for Predators Hockey (usually get 1)
    .
    .
    .
    and I would like to try and knock out a large percentage of my school loans


    Enjoy, this is a fun time.

    Because that is precisely the reality. Throw in a pair of Barcelona Chairs and that stupid little side table that everyone has and you've got the white people stereotype down pat.

    Spending as much time during the summer as possible in Hyannis. Getting my son ready for his big move from 5th grade to middle school (girls, bullies, homework on weekends, etc etc). Having my team win our Little League AA division. Getting in shape for the upcoming softball season.

    You must be mistaken, they don't let the colored folks vacation there.

    Nice. What sort of field are you in? I will be making about $1 a week out of college.
