As evidenced in this blog entry, I have LOTS of Barbies! I don't tend to buy collector dolls or keep them in their boxes, they mostly are meant to come out of the box so I can arrange them, change their clothes, whatever. My boyfriend's nieces also enjoying playing when they visit. Since I'm not buying the expensive dolls, it isn't TOO pricey...the latest doll I bought was on clearance for $8...but it's still something a girl my age probably shouldn't be wasting money on. Oh well! It's fun. A lot of dolls and things have been given as gifts as well, so that's nice!

I spend obscene amounts of money on vitamins and supplements, organic food and Pilates classes. I know, I'm really boring. But really healthy.

I won't tell you what I usually spend on a haircut but I am very proud of myself for getting a $45 (I consider that unbelievably cheap) haircut this week. Unfortunately, it kinda sucks.

^ that's a cool collection. I still have my argoflex seventy five that was my grampa's he gave me when I was a little kid. I just still having it.

I used to collect old alarm clocks but I had to kick the habit, it was addictive and I was spending too much. (I love the sound of clocks ticking)

I like going on little trips for 1 or 2 days. That's really an expensive interest: the transport, shopping, hotel, and restaurants...
Anyway I think it's a good way to spend your hard earned.

I've traveled all over the place this year to see Nels Cline play guitar. I've seen him play six times with Wilco, nine times with his jazz trio, and a few times with other groups. It's been worth every penny and every minute spent in transit, though. He's an amazing musician and a super nice guy.

Dude, it's ok. There's no shame in these things today. With the acid to burn those warts off, and the right medication you'll be as good as new in no time.

I just feel bad for all of those cheap prostitutes I've had my ways with over the years now.
