Been Wasting Money Lately

Bit of a low point for me lately. Just been wasting money. I bought a new sprinkler for the backyard as the missus broke the connector on the old one. And what should happen the next week? There is a ban on using sprinklers during winter. At least my new sprinkler will still appear to be new come spring.

Second bit of wastage came when I purchased Unreal Anthology, a set of computer games, from EB Games. Picked it up for only $20 and it is the early versions of Unreal Gold, Unreal Tournament, Unreal II and Unreal Tournament 2004. Quite a good game still and one which we, The Boy and I, enjoy playing. In the city for some lunch and shopping last weekend and we wandered into EB Games. Imagine my shock when I discovered that nearly all of the games were half price! Dammit! So I bought Command & Conquer Saga - The First Decade and Tiberium Wars. It had been $50 and I'd had my eye on it for a while but couldn't go past it for only $25.

So, it's not all bad.

Shame on you. Forget about it. You have to have some fun. You only get one life. Gill

Maybe I´m old. But it all sounds so "unreal" to me! ;-)
Gah, sometimes it´s just bad timing. Have fun with the games anyways!

One of my all time favorite past times is waisting money. I makes me as happy as a school girl!

I didn't think that schoolgirls were all that happy. They pretend to be because they are generally insecure.
